College waitlists often waste would-be students' time
"Does being waitlisted count as half an acceptance??" "Literally got waitlisted everywhere" "Being waitlisted from your top choice is the worst feeling" "What should one do when waitlisted at their top choice school? Asking for a friend." "All these waitlisted got me feelin like Ladybird." Those are just some of the thoughts that high school seniors have tweeted in the past few weeks. They've opened their mail — or, more likely, an online portal — to finally hear decisions from colleges. But many didn't get one. The number of students placed on college waiting lists has climbed in recent years, leaving students hoping for the best — even when they might not have any reason to hope at all.
