Some readers (specifically, those who have decided to accept a spot on the waitlist) may be wondering about the current state of the enrollment process, and I’m here to report.  Most of our admitted applicants were required to make their decisions on enrolling by April 20, this past Saturday.  A few have until May 1, but the class is starting to take shape.  In the coming week, we’ll be doing some clean-up work and counting enrolling students.

Does this represent new information for those on the waitlist?  Not really, but I know that the correspondence vacuum can be hard to deal with.  And there is something that you can do.  First, if you plan to remain on the waitlist, please be sure that you have indicated that decision to us.  Your deadline is technically May 1, but why wait?  Second, if you or your pal have accepted a place on the waitlist but no longer want to wait, it would be great if you would communicate that decision to us, too.

Please contact us if you have questions.  I’ll be back with more information whenever there is some, most likely not until May.

  1. Hi Faizaa,
    You can send any additional submissions to Just note that you’d like the information to be added to your application file for the waitlist. Good luck!

    Hi Jessica! I am wondering how you would like to receive the waitlist statement and additional recommendation.

  3. That’s a good question, Felipe. It would certainly be a hassle for applicants and inefficient for us if we were to post new decisions on GAMS at random times. So we will definitely be in touch with waitlisted candidates by email.

    Hi Jessica, I was wondering: how are waitlisted students notified if they’ve been accepted? The same way as regular notification; through email/Graduate Application Management System or is there a special procedure?

  5. You’re welcome, Felipe. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for the update!
