    has anyone been already accepted off of the waitlist?
    If not, does anyone know when the movement starts?
    Has anyone been accepted before May 15th in the previous years?

    I doubt they've had any waitist movement yet, since they can't accurately guage their matriculants until after May 15th. I would expect them to start moving a few days after the 15th.

    In years past, I haven't heard much about the waitlist moving prior to May 15. My advisor actually used to have Dr. Dodson's position on the committee way back when (he's kind of old), and he said that movement generally peaks May 15 - June 1 and then becomes more sporadic as you go through the summer. He said people have gotten accepted up until the day before school, but past July 1, you really should be focused on elsewhere.

    Yeah definitely. It won't be a "no-brainer" and definitely a tough choice if I get in. Finances aren't my top priority because I got other sources of funding.

    Sounds like the beginning of an episode of "The Sopranos."

    So do they send that letter to everyone on the waitlist about the 50 spots? I couldn't tell if they were just being nice or they were telling me I have a good shot. Do they give out waitlist positions over the phone (i.e. "You're in the top third" etc.)?

    Expect there to be lots of movement off wait list at WUSTl, but not really before May 15 - as for the waiting, the hard part will be between June 1 and July 1 when one wants to move on and settle at another school but still keep hopes alive - and getting housing, roommates becomes a compressed unpleasant experience - that said, few students are settled unless they dont need financial aid and are into the school of choice (this has to be a very small percentage even of SDNers...! the most successful students have more choices of course, but they still aren't settled either

    Hey guys! Congrats to everyone on the wait list and everyone who got in. I'm on the wait list and I'm wondering if anyone knows specific stats? About how many people are put on the wait list and what % of those people get in? I know the letter said ~50 spots, but I wasn't sure how many people were on it to begin with. I would love to go to Wash U my family is from St. Louis and I really miss that city!

    Alright well if anyone could fill me in that would be great!
