Our waitlist is comprised of a group of applicants who will be considered in the event of a vacancy in the class. It is made up of those whom the Committee on Admissions feels are qualified applicants. We continue to use a Holistic Review Process as we evaluate candidates to fill vacated positions. Candidates may be accepted from the waitlist up until the start of the academic year.
