I saw it on here. It says someone was accepted off the list and someone was rejected off the list.

@tswizzle13: My seat deposit deadline for Tech is May 22nd, so there will probably be more WL movement after that date as well. I still haven't made a final decision yet, but I'll be sure to withdraw if I don't accept.
Has anyone heard anything off the waitlist?
No sadly
I emailed addcoms a view days ago and they said they've only been cutting the list down.
They also mentioned that they will try to pull people from it into July...
