This is a question I've thought about a bit too, tuesday, and found some answers right on the Speakeasy here:
Re: [fixittuesday] Waitlists and tiered funding
[In reply to]
The discussion takes place a year ago, so I don't know how much things have changed since then. What I do know is that there's five slots, and however many people are fully funded (I gather about two, from my research), chances are those will be the unlikeliest spots to open up. And frankly, if they do open up, then it would stand to reason that the ones who weren't originally waitlisted gets slotted into those positions first. So, in other words, I'd have to agree with your analysis.
I'm a waitlistee for Notre Dame prose as well, though I'll most likely end up turning down my spot on the list sooner than later. My waitlist letter told me that I'd get notified about spots opening up by April 30th, which is simply too long for me to wait. Hope this helps!
