On a similar note if one gets waitlisted I'm under the impression that there arent large weaknesses since the school decided to extend an interview. While there are parts of the app that could be strengthened, it seems like it would be kind of marginal. Obviously interview performance could be improved but you cant really convey that in paper applications so what is there to be done? I suppose taking an extra 2 years would allow someone to mature though.How about immediate reapp after interview->WL and fixing prior weaknesses?

Being a babbling idiot
Saying what the interviewee thinks the interviewer wants to hear instead of speaking from the heart.
