    Obviously it's best if you're 'on the top' of the tier one waitlist; however, the following represents the stats from last year's waitlist:

    Offers in June : 32
    Offers in May : 6
    Offers after May : 0
    Total Offers after May : 38

    So, the above stats obviously don't include those taken off the waitlist in May. . . so it would seem that nearly 1/3 of the entire class matriculates off the waitlist.

    Therefore, if you're prudently persistent (don't mind my accidental alliteration) with your attempts to make yourself heard, I think you stand an excellent chance of getting off the waitlist.

    The trouble is distinguishing yourself without annoying the admissions office, and in particular, Gaye Sheffler (who's really a wonderful woman!).

    Good luck! :)
     
  4. I started a poll about who got 'top of' or just 'tier 1' and how many ppl got tier 2, search for it i think its 'penn waitlist poll' or sumthin similar... vote too please..
