I don't know how they rank applicants on the waitlist...but I do know of people in my class who got pulled off the waitlist. It is not uncommon. I even know of one or two who got pulled off a few days before classes started in Sept. They start calling people over the summer to trim down the list and see if you are still interested.
I think someone shuts their eyes and picks names out of a hat . No but serious im in the same boat and was wondering the same thing. So how do they pick ppl off the waitlist since they do not rank it? Do they review all the applicants after the mcv and the waitlisted at the same time? Or do they just wait until all seats are full and then review waitlisted ppl?
Well, there will be an extra seat on feb 16 when I'm suppose to mail in my deposit, so hopefully it will go to one of you lucky ones!! and plus Midwestern's deposit policy sucks..seriously...if I submit a deposit and I decide to withdraw after feb 19 I'll only get $100 of my $500 back! That might persuade some people to not submit a deposit and forfeit their seat, so there's hope if you're waitlisted...so Good Luck and all the best!!
