How Automatic Priorities Impact the Waitlist
Zooming out, in many ways, the waitlist is always recalculating. Anytime an application gains or loses a priority, the waitlist recalculates to make room for it and put it in the right place (offers, on the other hand, have no automatic functionality - they're never made automatically, only by admins making offers to students). Automatic priorities are priorities that are applied by our system based on your configuration. These are usually pulling data from the application forms, or in the case of dynamic siblings, from account-level student data. This is how priorities like FRL or ELL status can be applied to applications automatically - by looking for certain responses on forms, they can add priorities automatically so that admins do not have to apply them manually.
