    I'm with you! I've been waitlisted for Hopkins since October, so I'm kinda settled into the waiting game. It's only mildly annoying now, but come May 15th, I'm sure I'll start biting my nails again.

        I'm in CA and I got mine yesterday. FYW, the letter said that if they didn't hear back from you by May 15th, they would remove you from the waitlist...so you should probably contact them. Look at this way, now you have a legit reason to call the admissions office and profess your love for Hopkins.

          Hey, me too on the first day interview. They sure got our hopes high, didn't they? lol. It was a small crowd and everyone was very nice, which means you were one of em. So good luck to us first dayers!

              I think a lot of people are displeased with their financial aid packages this year...theres another thread on it somewhere. I am guessing that will be the main reason people go with another school. I nominate Goldtop to be this year's Doko (minus the non-acceptance). haha

                Does anyone have the email address for the admissions office? Can't find it on their website or in my records, but if anyone can tell me they can (potentially) have my spot in the class!

                    Thanks guys! Good luck!

                    Dear lord, I am antsy these days waiting for Hopkins. I will scream out my window in utter bliss if I get in!

                    Haha, I'm a little antsy for you too Goldtop, and I don't even know you except through SDN threads. I hope you hear back good news, but at least it's already a given that you're into an awesome school. :hardy:

                      *nodnod* I agree with Text. It's GOT to happen for you!!

                      (also- Hopkins owes me a rejection letter).

                      Yeah, the WL gods came through for me, bunny, Nehc, and DocDreamer, so hopefully it'll do the same for you! Haha, I remember all of us being kinda jittery in march being WL at our dream schools, I'm so happy things turned out well.

                      Haha, you can have my rejection letter if you like! :p I was pretty bummed about being rejected from Hopkins post interview (my first post interview rejection too), but I think it worked out for the best because I'm loving Philly's chinatown!

                      :luck::luck::luck::luck: guys!!!! Sending you all the lucky vibes I can :)

                        I called today. The lady I spoke with said that the class is still overfilled and they won't be taking anyone off the waitlist until June 1 at the earliest.

                        Do you happen to know who she is? As in is she just an admissions staff, or asst dean or member of the committee?

                        I really want to know so that I can stop waiting. The wait is actually worse now because I am freaking out about whether I will gett good housing and room mates at my second choice school.:(

                          I'd say secure a place to live at the school you're in at now, and if you have to make the happy move to bmore last minute, let me know, I'm pretty familiar with the area and can make some recommendations :)

                            Well, even with all the stuff with financial aid this year, we still got a very high retention, so unfortunately we are overfilled. Some students are still holding multiple acceptances (whether because they're not following the rules or their schools have been slow to process their withdrawl) so that should bump the number down a bit, and some will withdraw after they get off other waitlists, but its looking like there might not be that much waitlist movement this year, or at least that there's not some massive financial aid crisis that caused a lot of people to drop.

                            A lot the financial aid stuff turned out to be a lot of mistakes and miscommunication, a lot of people got better offers after Revisit Weekend.

                            And I'm sorry, that's all I can say, your personal situation may differ (you may be at the very top of the waitlist) so don't assume this is the end for your application until you get a letter.

                              Wow this is exceedingly depressing. I don't see myself getting off any of the waitlists that I am on with the way things have been going. Reapplying is not going to be fun.

                              It's not over till August! Good luck man, I really hope one of those WL pulls through for you! I feel like if you're good enough to get an interview and a WL from Hopkins, you should be good enough to get off at least 1 of the 8 WLs.

                              Heh...even though I was already rejected post-interview from Hopkins, I'm still addicted to this thread. Inexplicable. And sad..I know.

                                Brock, you are the bearer of bad news in all my waitlist threads.
                                I'm glad you are finding out useful info, but jeesh. The least you could do is add a smiley face to accompany your utterly hope-crushing posts.
                                I tease :).

                                  Until they send me some kind of notification of my rejection (email, snail mail, phone call, carrier pigeon, whatever), I am STILL a Hopkins hopeful- of course, you guys all have a much, much MUCH better chance of acceptance than I do, what with being interviewed and all.

                                  I think that there's still hope for you guys (this is via bunny intuition, not the JHU admissions office) :luck::luck::luck:
