    does anybody know if the waitlist is ranked?
    I heard from another applicant that the waitlist was ranked, and that Paula Davis said that letters of intent won't make a huge impact since it is ranked. But I didn't get that info from her directly, so what I heard could be incorrect.

      bump...any of the other waitlisters hear anything?

      There are two waitlists, a high waitlist and a regular waitlist. You would know which one you are on based on the letter sent (tells if you are on high). Supposedly all the high waitlist people will get in, and last year some regular waitlist people got in too. The waitlist is ranked to the number.

        do you mind posting what the high waitlist letter said?


        I dont have it in front of me but...

        "The committee has decided to place you on the waitlist; however, your position in this list is high. It is my expectation that your application to University of Pittsburgh will meet with eventual success"

        Thats the gist...

          Paula Davis emailed me that the waitlist is ranked, but they won't let you know where you stand. She said that waitlist movement could begin as early as March, but I'm not crossing my fingers.

          Interesting... I was told that waitlisters wouldn't hear until may 15, but not from davis, so that's good.

          Has anyone asked if we're allowed to tag along at the second look?
