    I got in to ECU, but I'll be turning down the offer to head to Tulane. Good luck to everyone on the waitlist. I know how it feels this was my third go around and finally things panned out.

    DANG! This thread is SO DEAD right now.... maybe i should throw out a nugget of information to bring it back to life. ;)

    So, UNC is finally pulling people off the waitlist... a couple of people have already received calls...

    Now it is just a matter of time before they call you....


    .... or me :D


    Good Luck :luck:

    why does that suck? You may be the next in line to receive a call. Look on the brite side... at least there are people getting in off the waitlist this year.

    A couple of weeks ago, I seriously believed that everyone accepted to UNC were planning on attending. Over 20 students have decided to go elsewhere...I am sure there will be several more.

    That's crazy, because I would think there are still letters regarding the alternate list that are being mailed in, because the letter was supposed to be postmarked by the 15th...

    There probably are some letters still coming in. However, I wouldn't want to be one those people waiting to the last minute to return my waitlist letter.

    Like I said before, I would be quite surprised in we don't hear something from someone on SDN by the end of the week.

    I just called UNC and the person on the phone said there hasn't been any movement on the Waitlist since they haven't gotten in responses and no rank's been assigned either...so i don't know how people already got off the waitlist...unless he was lying

    Sure... why not?

    Anyhow, there is not official ranking of the waitlist. Yes, there is a ranking, but it is all subject to Dean Hoole's discretion. He makes the final decision about who gets off the waitlist.

    greeniz and IDontKnow,

    I hope you both get into UNC. You both have been adamant in this application process and have put in a lot of effort in calling the ADCOMM office, finding out info, etc...

    Whatever you do, don't lose hope.

    May 17th, 2007. I finally got the call...2nd time around was the charm.

    For those of you who are applying during the 2007-2008 admissions cycle [envisioning a group of fanatic SDNers next year searching through this thread for signs of hope], I just want to let you know that if I can do it, you can do it. IT'S POSSIBLE. Keep the faith and never give up on your dreams.

    SDN is a great resource for asking general questions, preparing for interviews, and learning more about medical school applications. However, I would be cautious about taking personal advice from its members. Find out what you need to do from the people that know best and become an ACTIVE APPLICANT.

    Don't deny the power of inquiry/persistance, the power of people, and most importantly, the power of Prayer.

    greeniz and IDontKnow.... I will be praying for you.

    thanks IDontKnow!

    Rottiesrock, i haven't forgot about you either... i'll throw some prayers up for you as well.

    As for the summer plans, I will be leaving to Malawi, Africa on June 11 and staying for 5 weeks. I will be mostly doing research and networking with NGOs in the capital of Lilongwe. I will definitely try to fit in some RR on the weekends.

    Anyhow, I will still be around... lurking through the threads.

    thanks again....

    Congrats asieslavida and DrKD2007 on ECU! I'm on the waitlist there and hope to join you in the fall. Do y'all know how big the waitlist is at ECU, or if anyone else you know has turned down a spot there?

    Good luck to all still on UNC and ECU waitlists, I know it's tough. Keep the news of acceptances coming!!

    Thanks.

    I believe that ECU's wait list is usually the same size as the class (~72) and it is ranked, but there is no way to figure out your position. It will move so keep up the faith.
