Apparently you’re not convinced of that either given that you’re checking as well 😉

Taking it for granted that mere checking infers not convinced.

22:25
Nothing yet
2 people on reddit posted that they got in off the waitlist

One of the two people on Reddit mentioned that people admitted off the waitlist were given until July 5th to accept or decline. *Hopefully* we'll start to see more movement after the end of this week, but not guaranteed.
ok thanks!! hopefully something will happen!
22:31
did anyone else get a feeler email?
what did the email say?

Maybe we should start daily check-ins to help with our sanity LOL
10:04
somehow i think that may lessen our chances...
i think they should give us all a waitlist check in so i can like move on with my life or not lol
12:33
agreed the unfortunate thing about the waitlist is they simply don’t care enough lol
HeavyCutPlatypus
12:46
Oh i meant like check-in amongst us. they'd probably strangle all of us if we started regularly calling them lol. I do agree though, some kind of update to the likelihood of getting off would be nice
lol i feel like i should just call at this point like im about to move to another city and sign a lease for an apartment lol

if it helps, i called on Monday and so did someone else. The information they're allowed to give isn't really helpful because it's what we already know (they've gone to WL once and are evaluating current class to determine if they'll go to WL again).
ahh ok that helps a little thank you!!!
