Thank you for the update.


Just got another update that I'm #1 on the non-Atlantic list! Staying hopeful!

Has anyone on the Island wait list heard anything? I'm currently #2 and would love to know anything #1 or those who are in can tell me.

Keeping the fingers and toes crossed.

Awesome for you please let me know if you hear anything. Also are you waiting on any other schools?

Thanks! I am pretty surprised the wait-list has moved so quickly. No, I am not waiting for any other decisions to be made -- it will be UNB law or working for the year -- sadly, I was rejected from Dal but I was not too surprised. UNB's tuition is way more attractive, however, given the market.

Yeah exactly the same situation with Dal. I'm really happy with how the wait list is moving and the way it's going hopefully after Wanda gets back in August you'll at least be in if not both of us.

Hey, when you say 'after Wanda gets back in August' does that mean no offers will be made until she is back? Do you know how long into August she is gone for?

She will return August 8th and she said when she is gone there will be no movement.

There will be no updates on the list but people will hopefully continue to decline their seats during those two weeks and there might be a bump on the ninth or tenth when everything is sorted (Assuming that's how it works). 

 

Eldamada says Dal is moving too, hopefully they are letting in some Islanders who'd rather go there. Everyone says that the big movements are the last two weeks of August but given the progress so far hopefully there will be better chances!

No movement in the PEI list while Wanda was away, Hope is fading fast. Hopefully the trend of the list moving a lot in the last two weeks of August is going to continue.

Have you emailed her today?
I thought she will be back tomorrow.

I emailed her this morning she said

 

"We have had no movement over the two weeks that I was out of the office. I will keep you updated if there are any changes."

 

I don't know if that means that she hasn't updated the list I.E. the list didn't move while she was gone or if there were just zero withdrawals, I also don't know whether that means just the PEI or all lists. I would advise emailing her, you might get some good news.

 

I'm starting to get a bit worried as my friend is holding a room for me in the house he lives in and I'm sure that his roommates don't want to hold it forever.

Congratulations Nikki! It's a shame it wasn't a few days earlier, we just had a meet and greet in Halifax on the 4th.

Switched my acceptance today to a different school, so that could mean some good news for somebody! I'm from Ontario, just thought I'd let everyone know there may be a last minute spot!
