If a waiting list is closed, but I qualify for a preference, can I still apply?

Answer

No, if a waiting list is closed, you may not apply at that time, and no circumstances would allow you to apply until it reopens. Preferences are for qualified applicants to be placed on the waiting list higher than general applicants.
