The Plan II Admission Wait List

Plan II regularly offers a wait list option to a small number of applicants. If the number of admitted applicants who accept the offer of admission is low, and our entering freshman class has spaces available, Plan II will make offers of admission to some applicants on the wait list.

An applicant cannot request the wait list option.  

Unfortunately, we can’t give any firm number on anyone’s chances of admission from the wait list. In years past, about 50% of those offered the wait list responded that they wanted to remain on the list. Assuming similar numbers to past years, the “active wait list” in any given year might include about 30-50 names. From that list, we might admit a modest number of applicants.


How the Wait List Works

We will notify anyone on the wait list prior to the May 1 deadline if we are able to admit any applicants from the wait list. What usually happens is that more students than we can manage respond positively. So, often we are waiting for applicants to change their mind about coming just to lower our numbers down to where we wished to be in the first place. We have lowered our number of original offers of admission, but the “yield” factor (the number of applicants who accept Plan II’s offer of admission) is unpredictable, as is the original number of applicants—neither number follows any reliable trend.
