Being OOP is going to prove to be increasingly difficult for people. Most of the schools in the Maritimes currently have waitlists of >2 years. Craziness.
I just thought of another possible theory: they messed up with the applications of some folks and decided to bump up their rank as retribution for these mistakes. For instance, if an applicant was told that they were rejected because they didn't have Grade 12 Chemistry, but then the applicant proved that the Chemistry mark was there on the transcript all along (and the admissions offer missed it or something), they could be given a "big bump" up the waitlist to make up for the mistake. This isn't common but it has happened to a few people I know. This is all pure conjecture though, as every school does thing differently. It could be a number of factors that lead to this. Sorry to hear that happened.
