Class of 2022 Waitlist Notification Dates and Stats

Posted in Class of 2022, Waitlist

UPDATE #2 (6/28)

waitlist2018For those of you that have been waitlisted at one of your top choices, here's a list of 2017 waitlist statistics for several popular private and public schools, along with notification dates and latest status where available.  

Our sample of waitlist statistics from 132 private and public institutions paints the following picture:

  • On average, 13 percent of students accepting a place on a waitlist were admitted
  • 63 percent of the schools admitted 10 percent or less of the students accepting a place on the wait list last year
  • 51 percent of the schools admitted 5 percent or less
  • 16 percent admitted no one

There are several factors driving the low rates, including the size of the waitlist (often very large), and how well a school anticipates its admissions yield.
