does anyone know when they release the quartile ranking?
I wonder if they're just going to skip publishing the WL quartile rankings? Its not that I expect to get off the WL or something but it would still be nice to know how far off I was!

What are people thinking in terms of waitlist acceptance rate this year?
21:14
based on the stats here, they probably accepted 20 people off the waitlist last year. but with the issue that happened this year, i expect that many more seats will be vacant

I'm in the first quartile as well. Sounds like everyone is.
If there are 1000 and shrinking on the waitlist that's less than 250 in Q1, so if they take 20 from Q1 odds aren't looking impossible.
12:25
First quartile!!! I'm so confused as to the likelihood of getting in

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.
