Not taken off the WL but also international here. They first called me and I didn't pick up. When they couldn't reach me, they sent me an email asking me to call them. I imagined the process is the same. I wouldn't worry about it!

I found out today that I got accepted off the waitlist for directing with a scholarship. Is anyone in the same boat or knows more information about tuition costs for 2020? I'm very concerned about the price point. Even with the scholarship, it's still a ridiculous amount.
did you accept? do you know how many others are on the WL?

You're very welcome :) Happy to help.

I don't know if they'll share this kind of info, but I'm sure they are still admitting people off the WL at the moment.

I know that when they first called to notify accepted students they would ask people on the phone if they would attend the program this year because they were compiling the waitlist. But back then (early or mid-March) everyone thought the fall semester would be in-person. Situation changed, therefore many students, myself included, decided to defer even though we initially answered yes to the question. So they are admitting many people off the WL in order to maintain the class size.
