What does it mean to be on the wait list?

Posted by:

Foothill often has more qualified applicants than open seats in each class. The wait list consists of a small group of students for each grade who would be appropriate for Foothill but cannot be initially accepted. The waiting list for each grade is unranked; should space become available, all applicants for the space to be filled will be considered. Students are not admitted during the school year. The Admission Office makes every effort to contact families on the waiting list who are eligible for consideration should changes occur.
