I have officially been waitlisted by SIU. Not waitlisted to get an acceptance - waitlisted to just receive a secondary! Their letter says that I have not been officially rejected (my file is still considered active) - my status is "screener's alternate" - if they need to review more files as the year goes on, they may use mine. They say themselves it's not a very good thing to be on this list. To be perfectly honest, I had forgotten about them since I was told I wouldn't receive anything at all (being from Chicago). I guess it's better than a rejection. So if people ask, do I say I'm waitlisted? Rejected? Purgatory?
