WaitingStM4077 - welcome to the forum. Where is your DD on the waiting list?

I know that the final girl was admitted this year after the term started, so there is always hope! Do you have other options in mind too?

Hi llhj and CestMoi,

Thanks for the welcome.

My DD was placed 123, so she's 27th on the waiting list, if I understand how this all works....???
You mentioned that the last person placed started after the term started, do you know what number she was??

My alternatives are The Wren and Compton, I was told to put St Michael's as my first choice if I wanted her on the waiting list.

But now I'm really worried as I have been told that if you don't put an over-subscribed school such as The Wren first on your list, then you don't stand a chance of getting in.
This means she will not be offered one of her schools as all the ones I entered are over-subscribed.

All we can do is wait and hope that the list moves and people take alternative options.

Welcome. You may get in on that rank, probably not on allocation day but perhaps by Easter/May depending. I know someone in the one hundred and twenties who heard in May.
Don’t worry about Wren. That person was ill informed. The equal preference system doesn’t work like that. Wren will not be aware that they’re second on your list. Good luck and fingers crossed for you. I know of at least seven girls that are not taking their St Michael’s spot and are going to HBS DAO and Latymer and they’ll be more.

Hi llhj,

Thanks for the hopeful response, its good to know there is movement.

CestMoi you said
"I know that the final girl was admitted this year after the term started, so there is always hope! Do you have other options in mind too?"
I take it she was number 137?

I'm afriad I don't know because it was my DD who told me. I would presume that girl was 137 but again not sure.

I know a number of girls who sat St M this year who I thought had strong chances and were well prepared and only one got in, so your DD did well. That leads me to think that ilhj is right - the girls who got in were successful elsewhere too so may or may not put it down as #1. That may mean the list goes further than usual on allocation day.


All guesswork of course!

Thanks that sounds hopeful.

If anyone hears of any more movement could they please either add it to this board as I know others who will want to hear too, of if this is not etiquette could you please PM me.

Thanks loads and fingers crossed to everyone else out there who is in the same boat as my DD.

Is there a waiting list already for 2018 entry?
Or you mean position in the Rankings?

As per data given in an earlier post, 123 would have got place in all of the previous 3 years and 5 of the last 6 years. Good Luck.

Hi WaitingStM4077,

(if you’re still out there.) Our DD got placed 121, so we’re pretty much in the same boat and waiting for notification re the first round tonight. Our fall back is Ashmole, which isn’t so bad, only DD really loved St M’s ...

Let’s keep in touch!
