    I denied my spot but never got a response from the school. It seems like spots should be opening up for the waitlist!
    I also just rejected my seat on Tuesday with no response from Kasie yet. I'm not sure if I should call and speak with her directly or just wait for a response over e-mail. Either way, I hope she reaches out to people on the waitlist soon about the open spots!

      It seems like there should be more movement than there is at the moment. I don't know if this is something they're intentionally doing or if they are swamped at the moment. Even so, I feel like they should at least make some sort of effort to reach out and explain what is going on. Something about this wait-list situation doesn't really sit right with me.

        the weird thing is, kasie assured me that there hasn't been any movement and that the second a seat opens up she'd call me immediately. I have not received any calls lol (1 of 67 on list). I just got into SJSU though so I will be giving up my spot on the waitlist.

          That is weird. Congrats, now you don't have to worry about this situation anymore haha.

            I emailed Kasie yesterday and she said she doesn't expect anyone to drop from the class so she basically told me to move on. I thought I would pass it on to everyone that is still holding out hope on the waitlist. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

              Hey guys. I am a current second year OT student at Samuel Merritt. I've been following this because I was interested in the incoming class. I've seen that there was a lot of confusion and contradictory information about the waitlist. Over the summer, I heard from a professor that the fall 2021 class is huge. She said that the school typically accepts about 60 students with the expectation that many will drop, and the class size usually resolves to around 30 or 40 students. Once the amount of initially accepted students drops below the 30-40 range, then they go to the waitlist. Apparently, very few students dropped from the initial acceptance list (the incoming class has about 55 students), so the school never really got to the waitlist. I thought you guys might be interested to know what happened. Sorry that you guys had to suffer through that.
