@gyngyn I still don't really understand exactly why the madness will make it more advantageous to apply next year. Doesn't it seem like the decline in waitlist movement this year is primarily attributable to the schools over accepting adequately?; Meaning for example that to seat a class of 130 an 11-20 ranked school knows they need to accept 200. That knowledge will not change next year. I get that their ability to cherry pick the few spots off the waitlist based on where else if anywhere their wl students have been accepted, will be gone, but I am still curious to understand why this will all lead to pandemonium and a complete uselessness of the metrics they have accumulated. I still saw (at least on SDN) plenty of people posting 4,5 6 or 7 acceptances in their signature. And they were only able to matriculate one place, yet we still saw relatively minimal WL movement.
