We've been waiting the past 10 days to see if we had additional matriculation commitments coming and and to see what the national landscape seemed to be. It is now clear that we have had exceptionally strong results this year and that we will not be making additional offers to students from our waiting list.
Every year it is our hope that we will be able to make offers, but the unpredictable nature of admissions from year to year makes this impossible to predict. I do want to thank everyone who accepted a place on the waiting list for your continued interest in Caltech and most especially for your patience.
We mailed a letter yesterday officially closing the waiting list and will send an email to students later today. Best wishes to all at the colleges and universities you will be attending.
