Congratulations everyone! Hope I hear back soon too ^_^

Congratulations to those who got off the waitlist, super super happy for you both. Reach out if you have any questions regarding the onboarding. It's a long process, lots to do so as soon as you can get on it, the better. Also join the FB group, I have found it to have lots of helpful information.

Hi all, just wanted to drop the link to the facebook group again! Please join it so we can all communicate and help answer questions!

Hi all! Sharing the facebook Group for Admitted/Waitlisted Students  again!

Hi! For those who are waitlisted still, has any one heard back that they are off the waitlist because they won't get in this cycle? Also any idea on the waitlist size, chances, or ranking of the waitlist? :)) 

I emailed them and they said we will hear back from them with a definitive answer in June about our status unless anything changes they will email us right away. There is no ranking. Two people so far have been taken off the waitlist. I'm really hoping to get off the waitlist (I'm sure everyone on it is) but the odds are not looking so good based on prior threads.
