Waitlist chances

  1. Hi everyone,

    I am #8 on the waitlist for Goldfarb's nursing program at Washington University for Spring 2011 term (2-year Upper Division BSN Program). They said that the class contains 70 students, but that my chances are 'very good'. How is it possible? Wouldn't roughly 15% of the class have to change their minds for me to get in? I am confused

    It took a few months before I got a letter, so you don't have to worry

    More than 15 percent of the students they admitted will not go there. So many people apply to multiple programs, I would say you have an excellent chance. I was in the same situation around the same spot on the wait list in a smaller program. Got in and now have one year left!
