    Are any of you with acceptances to Pitt plan to give it up? Is there a hope to get off the Pitt wait list?

    I think there is definitely hope. It seems to me like Pitt is a pretty terrific school, but there are still many people who don't consider it their first choice. There will definitely be a good number of people withdrawing, but the question is: will there be a lot more withdrawals than Pitt counted into their original acceptance number?

    Anyhow, I'm on the waiting list too! Go waitlist!

    Good Luck :luck:

    Seems like pitt has placed a lot of applicants on waitlist. Also makes me wonder what my chances could be. It seems to me that not a lot of applicants have been rejected post-interview right away. So if pitt accepts ~400 applicants out of ~800 interviees and not a lot of em are rejected post-interview, it seems like chances of getting off waitlist are not as high as one may think. I am just making guesses here, but does anyone know of anyone rejected post interview without a waitlist from pitt.

    I also was not told where in the WL I was placed, no score info, not how big the waitlist is. I feel it's unfair for Pitt to withhold this
