I tried calling and you are soooo right, they give you as little info as possible about the waitlist, its almost like come on, but I honestly think its not lottery and they just tell people that. tuition deposits are due for people who were admitted, it was due may 1st, so there should have been a few spots that opened up. at least 7 to 10 from what I heard over the years, many people have UIC as second choice, especially if they are applying from indiana or wisconsin, they have their own school first and UIC admits them to get more money for out of state tuition but to realize that UIC was not the first choice for them, I am guessing next week people will get called. oriantation is june1st for this coming fall so I am guessing they will get as many people as they can off the waitlists because spots are open now as we speak. school is good, actually if i dont get into uic i might go out of state, we will see. but classes are good and I am still motivated, honestly. if i dont get off the waitlist, i truly truly hope they call you. because you deserve it! stay motivated ! and keep at it, you will make an amazing nurse.
