The possible Lottery Placements for your applications are Offered, Waiting List, Not Qualified, Not Placed or Seat Declined.
If your application is shown as Offered, to keep that offer you must accept the offer by April 6 by pushing the Accept Seat button. This will not affect your position on any waiting lists at higher ranked schools. You will have to go to the school by April 6 to deliver proof of address and to sign the school's entrance agreement.
A placement of “(your number) on Waiting List” means that the application was qualified and placed in the lottery, but the lottery result was not high enough to offer a seat at this time. The number tells you how many people must decline offered seats at that school for your student to be offered a seat.
All schools ranked below a school to which you were offered a seat will be marked "Dropped/Released." If you reapply to a school at which your application was Dropped/Released, your application will be considered in Phase 2 (December 10, 2016 - May 31, 2017) and the submitted date will be the date you reapplied. You will only be offered a seat at that school if there is space available after considering the applications submitted prior to your resubmit date.
If the application status is Not Qualified, this means that it did not meet the requirements to be placed in the lottery for that school. An application whose Lottery Placement is “Not Placed” was not entered in the lottery.
If you Decline an offered or a wait listed seat, your application to that particular school will be removed from the offered and waiting lists for that school. Your status will then show "dropped/release.”. This will not affect any of your applications to other programs. It is important that you DO NOT DECLINE an offered seat unless you understand the consequences. You never have to decline a school for which you are on the waiting list.
If you have any questions about what to do next, please contact the magnet coordinator at the school where you have been offered a seat. For more information, please visit our Web site at http://www.houstonisd.org/magnetstatus.
