Admission rates of waitlisted applicants

What are the admission rates of applicants that have been waitlisted/deferred?

In this sheet - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dlM2Qj_Ao9moIIbiYpz2st6FDMow0uFC0dRQokJFYZs/edit?usp=sharing - you will find the number of applicants that were waitlisted; the number who accepted a place on the waitlist; and number and percent of waitlisted applicants that were later accepted.

Those colleges that have an equal or higher waitlisted admission rate than the regular admission rate have been highlighted. Most of these colleges are less competitive colleges, however this is not always the case. Colleges such as MIT, Stanford, Julliard School, The College of New Jersey, Scripps College and Reed College all have equal or higher waitlisted admission rates.
