    I have been waitlisted at Wake Forest since I interviewed there in November. Their original letter told me to write them a letter to show interest, which I never did. Today I got a thin envelope. I thought it would be a rejection, instead it was an acceptance letter! It's a nice suprise to get. Now I need Duke to do the same thing.
