This depends on the number of spaces that become available due to withdrawals. When an admitted participant withdraws, we immediately offer that space to the next person on the waitlist. Throughout the spring as other important enrollment deadlines pass, admitted participants who do not complete certain requirements forfeit their space, which we then offer to the next person on the waitlist. Lastly, someone ahead of you on the waitlist may also withdraw, which advances your place. Though uncommon, we may face an exceptional circumstance that necessitates admitting someone currently placed after you on the waitlist. (Note that we will not discuss another participant’s circumstances for admission with anyone other than that immediate family.)
