Has anyone been waitlisted to a college before?

If you did, then did you successfully get off the list and get accepted to the college?? How?? Anyone know if writing a letter to the office of admissions will help increase my chances of getting in(because right now im waitlisted to a college I really really want to get into)? All I know is that it's really hard to get off and they probably only admit like 10 students off a list of 500+ waitlisted applicants...Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

    You don't do anything. You have a rank on the wait list, and if a certain number of accepted people do not attend then you're in. Otherwise, you're not in. Your actions won't have any effect, although I'm sure admissions won't appreciate it if you hound them about being on the wait list.
