CMU is a little unconventional in how they use waitlists: they send out about ~50-60 offers or so to fill ~10 seats. Then comes the waitlist, where they are culling from ~20-25 waitlistees to fill 5-7 seats and who are not quite as good as the others.
They say they have trouble recruiting for God-knows-what-reason (what's the problem with Pittsburgh or CMU anyway, even when the stipend is $2,375/month?)...
