    So I have been recently waitlisted at Drexel. To anyone else who has been waitlisted and heard something, how long did it take you to hear something after being waitlisted and was it good or bad?

    Cheers

    I actually called the Admissions Office this morning after a talk with my pre-med advisor. Here's what I gathered from the nice lady with whom I spoke:

    1) Waitlist movement usually begins around mid-April ( a bit earlier than other schools, it seems).

    2) Waiting list is ranked, so additional updates probably won't really affect your chances. However, the lady said that if I really wanted to send something in, it probably couldn't hurt.

    3) They cannot reveal where you are on the ranked waiting list.
