When I spoke with students at UNE, they said that everyone on the waitlist pretty much got offered a seat in the program. However, some had gotten notified merely one week before the semester started. I know waiting sucks, but I got the impression that if you were on the waitlist you had a pretty good shot of getting in. Hope this helps and good luck!
That would be great. I'm on three waitlists and really don't want to spend another year reapplying, but am prepared to if that is what it takes. I was told I'm in the middle of the group, so we'll see what happens!
