    WHAT?!!!!! STOMPSTOMPSTOMP

    Well, I can't say if it does or does not. If people don't take forever making their decision about school (and I'm not sure about over-acceptances and such....) - I honestly haven't a clue. All I can say is regrets, TigerWillow. :(

    kay dubs from your experience, how many people are actually on the wait list and how quickly do they pull people off?

    I have a question, are there anyone went for interview but been told rejected? Or we are ALL on the waiting list except the accepted?

    waitlisted.

    judging by the amount of responses here, there have been many waitlisted applicants... and no rejections yet? i am also wondering whether everybody who got an interview, and was not accepted, is on the alternate list. plus, they are not ranking the alternate list...

    Hang in there guys! The wait-list does move - a number of my classmates got called off the wait-list at various times between the spring and even as late as the last week of summer. So, don't give up! Just wait and see! :)

    I wonder if they 'over-accept', accounting for the fact that there are many people applying from out of state, who may stay in their state of residence if accepted there.
    Because that would make it tougher for us wait listers...

    they do over accept. I was told they accept half of those interviewed, and then about half of those come.
    Also, I'm in!!!
    Okay, who wants to be roommates? hehe

    TigerWillow don't lose hope! I have a good feeling about this. I said it before, but one of the doctors at my clinic got waitlisted for an interview, then put on the waitlist again, but was accepted a few weeks before the program started. I have faith that good things are going to come for you :)

    Oh, Evil Shoe, how will we find the facebook page when it pops up (not the official school one, the one where we chat) what should we be searching for?
    Thanks!

    I got in and had been on the wait-list for interviews. I wasn't even called off until the friday before the last week of interviews. I'm in total shock!

    Hey ya'll - waitlists, this still stings. :xf:

    As for what TES says: I prompt anyone who wants to start up the FB group. If anyone is so inclined, feel free to start up a semi-similar thread to Ohio's (an accepted definitely attending) sorta thing here on SDN.

    Otherwise, I'm willing to start the FB group (it sorta is in an early stage there...). Just not until March. :oops:

    Congrats acceptedees!

    For those of you who picked Tufts over a cheaper option, what made you choose Tufts? I'm currently torn because Tufts is by far my top choice school wise, but my instate (Davis) is slightly cheaper, and while I'm not in at Davis yet (I have an interview) I want to start thinking about the decision I'll have to make if I get in at Davis, considering I won't find out about Davis until the end of March. So how did you justify Tufts over a cheaper option?

    Ah nuts, just realized the app isn't on there directly. You should have received the application for the dual degree program in early January as part of your packet, according to the site.

    Hi guys! This is my first time posting on here (obviously i've been stalking it for months) but I was accepted at Tufts the other day (out of state) and will be attending. I was just wondering if anyone had received their official letter yet? I haven't yet and am just really excited for the actual thing! Thanks!

    The letter will come, don't panick :) And you got the electronic acceptance - you're good to go!:thumbup:

    and kegra, there's the "Official" group on FB that's in the acceptance letter (so I'm told) but I PROMISE to set up a unofficial class of 2016 -similar to the 2015 FB group by next weekend. People will hopefully start making their "definite" decisions by then. I'll post a link here as soon as I get it done!

    :biglove: to all my classmates & :luck::xf::luck: to the waitlists. Gahhhh - I'm so excited to meet everyone this fall!!!!
