    Anyone here still in the game?

    Thx for the update. Do you know when abouts this happened? Because when I spoke to her, she said no movement.

    Congratulations! When is your deadline to accept? Are you one of the two girls 250VI was referring to?

    It's crazy that we can't get a hold of her. My understanding is the transfer students have been kept on, which is directly screwing things up. I don't even know how this got sprung up on us last min, but it might be the last nail in the coffin for a waitlist that has been noticeably slower than its preceding ones.

    Not since early last week. When was the last time you touched base? Did she tell you where you're sitting?

    The silence is deafening...

    Yes, as 250VI alluded to, connecting with her is really hard right now. Keep persisting. I called numerous times everyday till I finally got a hold of her. Are you able to accept the offer if you're given one from now till the first week of classes? If so, you just have to stay keep staying patient I guess....it's brutal.

    Hey, Have you tried reaching out to Leanne? It’s difficult to say because the waitlist has been shuffled a number of times. You’re best to check with her. What are your stats and such?

    This is pretty peculiar. I had no clue they could have transfer students mixed in. Did she tell you how close you would be if they take the transfer students off the list?

    Fellow Waitlisters, Having lurked these forums for some time now, and also having had conversations with folks in Admissions of different schools, I've come to understand that one of the main culprits of stagnant and long waitlists at this time (or any time) is that students do not inform schools when they no longer intend to remain on the list, accept a potential offer, etc. In other words, perhaps the student has accepted another school's offer, or circumstances have changed and they can no longer attend the school they're on the waitlist for, or it's too late for them to accept an offer if they were to be given one. The last one is apparently especially common at this time of the year, as the turnaround time is so short now and it's just not feasible for everyone to move, etc. If any of these is the case for you, please do inform Leanne of your status. It would be a huge service to those of us whose lives are on hold while on this waitlist and would definitely accept a potential offer. Thanks all!

    Big congrats! Very happy for you.

    Did she say anything to you about how much turnover, etc she expects from now till the start of classes? I mean, you’re basically a shoe-in to get in at #1, but just for the rest of us. Anything you can share that she mentioned would be appreciated.

    Yes I hope that’s the case for you. As a couple folks suggested, it seems like the list was revised on Wednesday, so you could be anywhere I suppose (some were even bumped back). Are you local to Kamloops? Apparently in the past, top 5 were “strongly likely to get in”, whereas this year, it’s going to take some magic.

    Ah just got through! It was so exciting that it felt like I got admission (I didn’t). Highlight of the convo: waitlist isn’t moving nearly as much as they have become accustomed to seeing. It’s very odd, especially as there’s been movement at other schools. Top 5ish can stay somewhat hopeful, but it “doesn’t look too great.” People aren’t rejecting offers as much. That’s it. Discouraging.

    Further to Saralyn’s comment, has anyone been able to connect with her today? Let’s all keep each other posted.
