Hi guys! My name is Maria and I'm also a first year at Marist! Like Camille said, we encourage you to reach out with any questions you may have because we understand how stressful the application proc

Received my acceptance call today! Best of luck to everyone!! I think Marist does a great job of looking at applications holistically. I did not have the strongest sGPA or the highest amount of P

Does anyone know how their waitlist works? Do they have a preference for applicants from NY? I interviewed on 10/30 and was waitlisted. Feeling very anxious!

I think every program keeps a hefty WL. They know all applicants apply to multiple schools, and there's a chance seats will be given up due to acceptances to other programs, financial issues, etc. It seems like they are going through chronologically on the WL, like they are pulling someone off who was WL in november before dec. Its all a waiting game! I was waitlisted 12/16 and haven't heard since.

I noticed the same thing! That’s why I was wondering like if someone from the 10/30 interview gave up their seat they would pull someone off the waitlist from the 10/30 interview. I was waitlisted in Janurary

As someone who was waitlisted from the 8/14 interview, I don’t believe they are going through chronologically.

I don't think their waitlist works chronologically like how others are saying. I feel like once you're on the waitlist, they prioritize those who left a lasting impression and go from there, and based on their admissions page on their website, it doesn't look like they actively prefer NY applicants over out-of-state. I'm from CA and I was accepted after being placed on the waitlist for like 3.5 months

I was accepted off the waitlist a couple weeks ago, but declined my acceptance today. It was such a hard decision but I ended up choosing a program closer to home that was a slightly better fit for me. This is an amazing program and I’m happy to know my spot will go to one of you! 😊
