    I am currently waitlisted at a 4 schools with no acceptance anywhere. I was wondering should I apply again this year even though I am in waitlist. Also there is nothing new I can add to my application if I apply this term.

    I just want to get an idea of what to do in case my name does not get pulled from any of the waitlists.

    If you aren't currently involved in any volunteer activities, that is ALWAYS a good idea. If you have literally nothing to add to your application, I'd hesitate before reapplying this cycle. What have you done since you submitted AMCAS last year?

    You could apply to different schools if you feel your application had no major weaknesses.

    What do you think needs improving on your application? If you're not sure, post all your particulars (stats & ECs with timeframes) and we'd be happy to comment.
