Once and never doubted that I would get in :) I have so much outside relevant work experience in dealing with people and at risk children(gives me a great head start on assessment skills, prioritizing,etc), that I was pretty much a shoe-in.

Got in on the third try. Although my school doesn't have a waiting list, it does give more weight to classes that are older (all things being equal, a student with a 3.5 that finished in 2010 would get in sooner than a 3.5 who finished in 2011. A 4.0 from 2012 wouldn't even be considered yet).
