2019-20 Short Waitlists

Applicants can still add themselves to any waitlist in the post-lottery period, and schools make offers according to their own capacity and policies. Offers from a waitlist are never guaranteed. This list indicates where waitlists are shortest if you are seeking a space for the 2019-20 school year. If a school’s grade is listed here, it means there are fewer than ten students in “Waitlisted” status in that grade at the time of the last update on September 25, 2019.
