Who is in a better position or has "dibs" on a seat, a person who has been waitlisted at a school in say, December, or a person who is still being considered for the second round admissions with status of Received/Under Review? Do the waitlisted people get first offers of the second round acceptances? Or is the wait list for later on in the process? Someone please enlighten me.

i believe "under review" after an interview for second round acceptances is in better position. Waitlisted people are usually considered only after all interviews and 1st/2nd rounds of acceptances are given out.

Waitlisted individuals are obviously not in the first round of acceptances, but can be includes in 2nd and following rounds of acceptances.

If any of you made an 18 on the RC portion of the DAT, would you tell someone who made a 24 on the same portion that they have bad grammar?

And yes, being able to read efficiently has everything to do with being able to write effectively.

No one ever stated you had "bad grammar". Just understand when to use possesion and when not to. You need to take critism and accept it. Overcome this mental barrier and move on, please.

Well, understand the rules of English to confirm that 24 you earned.

yeah, i'd have no problem since that section deals with COMPREHENSION and not grammar.
Haha wait to respond to something that didn't involve you. You're so awesome guy running your mouth on the internet.

How does this even remotely relate to the OP's question? Take your personal **** elsewhere...

I agree with bjhath,

drockindahouse, you're being quite rude on all posts that I've seen on this website. Seriously, there are enough a**holes in this world, don't be another. If you say your such a street dream, then try to change your attitude and you might consider fulfill another dream you haven't yet accomplished.
You state others are trolls my friend, but you're such a hypocrite do you know that?
Your parents didn't pretty much help you in how to interact with people. Get off your high-horse and get back into reality.
