    Hmm, I'm always late to the game, not sure I'm being that helpful anymore.

    Waitlist movement has started, and we expect to see a little more. I think about 15 have gotten waitlist offers, the class is still close to full, but we expect more movement. Don't know how much.

    You know guys, the numbers are starting to seem a little off to me too. They're saying the numbers are the same as previous years, but I have the same discrepancy that you guys do (they say there's lots of movement, but there hasn't been that much). We haven't increased our initial offer pool and financial aid was a little worse than usual (though not as bad as we thought), so this seems like an unremarkable year, but the numbers don't match up. Don't know what to say, I've asked about it outright several times and the answers have been confusing. Perhaps I should just shut up. Remember, I am just a student getting my information second hand like you guys, so don't take anything I say as gospel. Since I helped with Revisit I am interested in this stuff and will try to find out, but the bottom line is offers have gone out and we expect some more to go out soon, just not that many (don't know what number that is, just repeating what I heard).

        I just emailed and asked if there is likely to be any further waitlist movement. I will let you guys know if I get a response...I hope I didnt offend them!

        As people get off other waitlists, they will drop out, and there will be more waitlist movement. This comes directly from talking to the admin office. But its a trickle, not a flood, so while there will be movement its unknown how much.

        My year a girl was all set on going to Stanford, found out she was accepted to Hopkins two weeks before orientation in August, and switched all her plans at the last minute. Waitlist movement goes on forever. It just might be slow.

          Thanks again, JHopRevisit. Dean Hicks was kind enough to respond to my email as well and essentially conveyed the same point...thats its not possible to predict how the waitlist will move. So we will see what happens.

            Hi guys, I stumbled across this thread and wanted to let you know that there will be one more student offered a spot this week, as I have turned down the offer I received last Friday the 13th. Good luck to everyone still waiting!
