Before anyone spews the standard responses (additional updates, LORs, letters of intent, etc.), please consider the following: Although there are many people out there who may tell you that they got off the waitlist because they called every other week, sent letters, etc., there are just as many (probably more) who have gotten off the waitlist and have done NOTHING. Is it not reasonable to assume that the proactive waitlistees eventually admitted, would have been admitted ANYWAY regardless of their efforts? Please do not misunderstand me. The point of my post is neither to discourage anyone from sending updates or whatever, nor to stir up ****. Being waitlisted at my top choice, I myself would very much like to think that there is something that could be done to improve one's chances. However, I have yet to hear of any concrete evidence that you can really make a difference one way or the other once you're waitlisted. If you have any useful, FACTUAL, info, please contribute...I'm all ears on suggestions or thoughts on the matter.
