    Please continue to post all of the waitlist information - - whether it's a go or not. It is all helpful.

    I think "no" is useful because it means the door is closed, so students could move on. Sometimes there is no news about a school because they haven't made the decision whether to go their WL yet. Schools that have gone to their WL may then close it after they have filled their class.

    U Chicago notified kids last night. But so far everyone has reported rejections, so at this point it's not clear if they are actually going to admit anyone.

    Brown got a 3% higher yield than expected and is, at the moment, overbooked. They expect a bit of shrinkage as some students take gap years (a few dozen each year -- my son was one 2 years ago) and as a few get off other wait-lists. Brown generally only loses accepted students to HYP. So Brown may ultimately end up taking a small handful, but probably not for awhile (none got off the wait-list last year).

    U. yield rate hits 15-year high ? Brown Daily Herald

    Someone on the Lehigh board reported getting off the wait list but that they were offering very few spots. Lehigh also offered a few spring admits.

    It was posted on May 8.
