Hey everyone,
I was waitlisted by Temple in late December and was told that no decision would be made until April. I just wanted to know if anyone who goes to Temple, knows someone at Temple, or just knows about the process the school goes through might know how long after April 1 they start sending out invitations off of the waitlist.
Thanks!

i dont know for sure, but i assume they start sending out more acceptances after april 1 because of 2nd deposits not received. when did you interview, and did your letter say you were wait listed or that you would remain under review until april?

I was sent an email saying I was waitlisted and to not contact them until April (which is why I haven't called them :p) and my AADSAS status was also changed to "waitlist."

I'm on the waitlist and received that email too. Does anyone have any information on the waitlist movement? After what date should we expect to hear any news? How many people are on the waitlist and when do they start taking people from the waitlist? I have so many questions but I don't want to bother them since they specifically said not to contact them until April..

I'm assuming those are from people who were accepted rather than waitlisted...or those who were just late in updating their predents. Hopefully sometime soon we'll start hearing back regarding waitlisted students.

i interviewed in the beginning of march. they told me, "hold tight till the beginning of april". those accepted after jan 1 were not on a waitlist. now we are waiting for people to withdraw after putting down their first deposit. the second deposit was due today.

:bang:

I don't know if this helps but I called on monday to ask a financial aid question, and the women told me she couldn't tell me any final figures b/c they are currently still accepting people. Good luck!

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news but I know 5 people who were waitlisted last year and none of them got in. In sum, accept all offers and treat waitlists like rejections.

Why would they have a waitlist if they reject some after interviewing?
As an insurance in case a student decides to drop out. Given the high level of competition this year, fewer students are giving up their spots just because they are getting into fewer schools and have fewer options.

lets start getting ready for next cycle and see what happens. thats my attitude. i figure there might be a little movement after aadsas sends out the report of who has made multiple deposits. the schools start making calls and i think they are given a minimum of 2 weeks to make up their minds or else the school can revoke their admission. i know i cant hold out for that. im going forward with re-applying. oh well... sucks for me. im going to try and do some volunteering, and work to save some money. thats my plan. if i get in, i get in, i havnt given up hope, im just finished waiting.

I know they just pulled a guy from the waitlist last week. If I were you I would reapply if I hadn't heard anything by June 1, so start tweeking your applications as if you are going to reapply now. Good luck
