Hey man, I really think there's no point. The spectrum of stats for the wait-listed will be very close, if not identical, to the accepted. You're just as qualified as the next kid, it's just pretty random.

Yea don't dwell on those stuff. Just send in LOI like crazy if it's your top choice.

I'm still contemplating whether I should pursue the waitlists at Pritzker and Northwestern, because I'm just became emotionally exhausted by this process. I'm already IN at UCLA, and one of the only thing that attracts me to the Chicago schools is the location (Good to have a change of environment from HOT California)...That's why I don't even know if it's worth the effort.

I feel the same way about waitlists. I went to college in philly, and so far that's the only place I've been accepted. I loved Northwestern and was rejected, and I loved Pritzker and am on the waitlist. A change of scenery would be so nice, but I'm not sure I have the emotional energy to really try and get into Pritzker and then not be sucessful.

Does anyone remember the date when Pritzker is supposed to tell us if they are continueing to consider us or not?

I believe they say a few people are usually accepted each year in Feb and March (Maybe those on the top of their waitlist and who mentioned that Pritzker's their first choice). In April, they'll narrow down the list to the official waitlist in preparation of May 15th.
