4.0, 170, waitlisted today. Is it possibly because of my alien status?

poookeee

@Iamthelawstudent: i'm an international student too and got in. did you write the supp essays?
Iamthelawstudent
7:01
@poookeee I certainly did. Or maybe I applied a little too late.
I haven't heard anything from this school
poookeee
11:47
@Iamthelawstudent: hm weird. when did you apply?
Is NDLS still sending out waitlist responses this late in the game? Been UR for a while now so just wondering.
Looking at last year and seeing people get acceptances in June and July

Does anyone have experience calling their admissions office? They're giving the impression that they're swamped right now so I definitely don't want to do anything that counts against my app.. :/
