Waitlists are generally not presented like this:

"We'd love you to join us, so here's an offer to do so. Of course, you can't accept our offer until we work our way through all four admissions rounds and have a better idea of who's coming. Then, if we have spots, we'll gladly take you."

Making a waitlist doesn't feel good. It stinks.
