I got my letter in the email today and was waitlisted.

I remembered when i went to the interview they gave the number of students that went to the interview and the number of accepted vs waitlisted vs hold vs rejected for last year.

does anyone have those numbers? I wrote them down but they went mia.

Thx.

I was hold listed, but I remember them saying that everyone that was wait listed last year ended up being accepted anyways.

I got waitlisted as well. The web-site says that last year they accepted 180 for a final class of 120. I know that they were on rolling admissions last year, but at least it gives an idea of how many turn down the offer. Well, I guess its gonna be a long few months.

I got waitlisted too...I'm upset, but hopefully we'll all get in. I'm not very hight on the waitlist, so I agree it is going to be a long few months.:(

By the way, I'm from Maryland...

Keep your chin up guys. I know a few of the candidates who did get accepted, and they'll be declining their admissions because they got an offer elsewhere. So you never know =)

Just keep believing and I'm sure you'll get in.

I'd say you have a fair chance. You have to take into consideration also that there's an additional 40 spots open because of their new auxiliary campus at Shady Grove. That's why their waitlist is longer. And I do know for a fact that there are at least 5 people who got accepted that will not be accepting because I talked to them this morning. Seeing how I'm from out of state...i'm sure that number's far higher for in-state.

I'm declining my acceptance! And they are accepting more students than last year because of the satellite campus--you all still have a decent chance, no matter what your # is on the waitlist.

i think it would be a good idea for the waitlisted people to post their numbers and update the wait list status if they called.

i already posted my number in an earlier post and if i call, which i plan on doing about once a week or so, i will post if the waitlist numbers changed and keep updating this thread on what they said.

would be nice if other people did the same.

Vr6-I'm in the lower half, so there is really no need to post mine. I'll update if I move up though...

I was accepted and have up to the 15th to pay my deposit. I would check back after then because there may be people like me who are still in deciding mode and will go down to the last second.

First, I know they "accepted" more then 180 applicants last year. Several didn't respond or went to other schools. There's a significant number of attrition acceptances, especially for a school that "imports" a high number of out of staters.

UMB went through the 50 on the wait list last year and brought people off of hold to wait list, twice. They did varying numbers each time, once towards the end of the Spring semester/early summer (I can get the date if really needed) and once in late July.

In the end, being on the wait list isn't bad, but keep in mind, you may not find out until summer there's a spot for you. If you've applied only to UMB, it's not a problem, if you've applied to several places, then I envy not your decision.
