Slang used by private schools to say "no" nicely. Few people actually get admitted from it.

For people who don't know, the waiting list is a thing (apparently) that they have that they collect people if it is too late to be admitted for the private school. If someone drops out of admission to a certain private school someone from the waiting list will be admitted.

That's what they say, but nobody knows.
"We'll put you on the waiting list."
"Ah shit the waiting list!"

Get the waiting list mug.
when an admissions rep says "you were almost good enough.." instead of growing a pair and denying you admission.
you are a great student, but just not great enough for us- you have been wait-listed. you don't suck, but you just aren't smart enough for our standards. thank you for applying!

when a girl is in a relationship with someone else of which she doesn't wholeheartedly want to commit to and everyone knows you and her will get together after it's all ended.
I would be with her, but I am currently in the waiting list
