Long story short- the one program I wanted to be in, I got waitlisted.

Yeah I know I should be applying to multiple, but just didnít work out this time around!

Anyway, something is throwing me for a loop. A coworker applied to the same program, was also waitlisted, but got her letter days before me, 2 business days in fact. Any idea why waitlist letters would go out later than each other and not the same day? Iím guessing this means Iím lower on the totem pole, but I figure I would ask some people who might have a clue.
