sure. im just saying that some schools dont reject people till the very end (i guess u can say that is in may). like at uci, everyone who is not immed accepted post-interv is put on the alternate list. that means you shouldnt read to much into it cause everyone is put on it (temporarily maybe). (on the side, when the uci waitlist comes out, im not sure if everyone is still automatically put on that). my point: alternate list may not mean that much about how good your chances are, just that you still have one.
does that make sense?
