What are my chances of being admitted from the waiting list?

Unfortunately, we are not able to predict any student’s chance of being admitted. We do not rank the waiting list, and, should spaces become available, our review of candidates will focus primarily on their original applications and on their updated grades or final transcripts. While the number of offers we can make varies each year, we’ve provided the three most recent years of waiting list admission data as reference. Overall, the number of students we’ve been able to offer admission from the waiting list has been small.
