    How much do G&T waitlists move?

    I have a question for anyone who may know - historically speaking, how many students eventually get an admission offer from a citywide waitlist (Anderson/NEST/TAG/BSI/Q300) or a highly in demand District program waitlist (like Lower Lab)? I suspect that there is relatively significant movement after June 16, then little to no activity until the school year starts. I know the answer is probably that it varies greatly year to year, but knowing some historical data may allow people to temper their expectations accordingly.

    Curious to hear from anyone who actually got their kid into one of these schools that way.

    To those who did not receive their top choice, the waitlist process seems to offer a glimmer of hope in getting their child a spot in a school that might be a better fit for their child/family.

    I was told by nest that historically they have at most taken top 5 kids off the wait list.

    Congratulations! We also got waitlisted in Nest, Anderson and got into TAG (our third choice). Did you put any schools between NEST/Anderson and TAG? Trying to see what order the schools fill in.

    Interesting! Did you find out where you are on the wait list for LL? I would imagine you would be somewhere in the top of the wait list for LL if both Tag and LL fill around the same level and are not too far off from each other.
