Being waitlisted this early is not a bad thing, and is WAY better then a rejection! As soon as people begin to turn schools down, (around Jan. 15th) seats will open up... and since your likely to be relatively high on the waitlist, the open spot will go to you. The only question to ask is whether the schools prioritize waitlisted people over new (spring) interviewee's?

A good friend of mine got waitlisted at all six schools he interviewed at pre dec last year. He ended up getting in to three of those schools at the end of jan/ beginning of feb. It makes for a lame christmas but a lovely valentines day.
