    What’s the deal with waitlists?

    They use waitlists to fill spots when students don’t accept admission. It keeps classes robust and vibrant. Most schools rank students on the waitlist based on what they need (boys/diversity/athletes/musicians).

    Hope that’s helpful 🙂

    Our DD came off the waitlist at two schools including her top choice 2 years ago. We were told there would be a chance, so we turned down her second choice school. It was nerve-racking to say the least, but her time at school was even better than we imagined.

    What do schools use a criteria for ranking waitlisted students?

    From what I can gather, schools base waitlist on which students are best for the school. I’m sure which could give more back to the school is also a strong consideration – being a part of the drama team, sports team and parents giving back $$.
