    I am going to be on vacation Friday, I will be about 20 minutes away from a school I am waitlisted. Do you think it would be alright if I dropped by to check my status Friday morning?

    i think you should stand outside their admin office and call them up. then if they give you any lip, you walk in while still talking on your cell phone. Oh yes, have a friend tape this.

    :p

    I would jsut call them. since it is still 'pretty early.' if they beat around the bush (eg won't tell u anything) then you might want to stop by and as upfront. It'll be harder not to give you info if u go in person.

    I think I'll call them from my cell phone inside the office. That would be even better and would surely make my name stand out.

    Camp outside of the office. They surely can't miss you that way! <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    Try to make an appointment with the Dean of admissions to talk about your file. I am sure s/he would be happy to talk to you if they are not too busy. Or they could kick you out the do'.

    I wouldn't bother them too much. There's a fine line between standing out in a crowd and crowding.

    If it were me, I would show up out of the blue with a big smile, and a nice basket of muffins for the office staff. :D
