However, now it's decision time. Do people know anything about the department (from a visit or something)?

Also, what's the protocol for people who have offers but are also on a waitlist? I know I'm supposed to reply to the schools I have been admitted to by April 15th, but in all likelihood I will not know if I'm accepted off of a waitlist until the 16th (after they get all their 1st round responses on the 15th). It seems like it would be rude to accept an offer and then turn around and decline it because you got picked up off a waitlist (assuming the waitlist offer was better), but I see no other way around it.

I mean I have no idea how this has played out in past years and I guess it must be a scramble on the 15th...

There are some people who asked and got a response that they have been rejected, but they haven't responded to my email which was sent over a week ago. Methinks that either my app was so unappealing that they don't even respond to my inquiry or I am waitlisted.

longtm1989 wrote:It's a live-show. Schools wait for acceptances, send some acceptances and rejections, and we are waiting. Ohio State sent the ranked list of waitlisted students today, and I could find my ID on the list, although they said I'm wait-listed. Columbia hasn't sent anything. It's strange to a mediocre student like me how people haven't made decisions to Columbia. Come on, it's Columbia, and it's New York City.

I feel now this thread should focus on this.
