Does anyone know how the percentages breakdown for people accepted/waitlisted/rejected for Pitt? (i.e. is the waitlist huge, and few rejected--- or does waitlist status actually give you hope for admittance!)

I think no one really knows. I've been searching past threads trying to find more info, but no dice so far.

If anyone does have any information, I'd be very happy to know it, as I'm really hoping to get in off the waitlist.

Unless things have changed since I started at Pitt (I'm a third year), a lot of people in my class got in off the waitlist. I don't know what percentage of the waitlist gets in, but there will be quite a few people taken off.

Thanks for the info, Tanzo! I'm also on the waitlist, and knowing this makes it a little more bearable. :)

From what i have heard there is a good deal of movement on the Pitt waitlist so just hang tight and cross your fingers. I have also heard that do really like to hear of your interest so mabye of LOI is not a bad idea. Anyways...i know i will be giving up my spot in the class so hopefully one of you gets its, best of luck
