quick question - I just received an e-mail from AMCAS saying that a school has requested to run a background check on me. Now the only schools that I have pending decisions at that are on that list are Penn State and Georgetown. Given that I haven't spoken a peep to Penn State since I was placed on their hold list back in December, I can't see it being them (but who knows, med schools are wacky). What do you think this means/ Did anyone else receive a similar e-mail prior to getting into Penn State?
People are in fact moving off the waitlist, as a number of students have gotten accepted off the waitlist. We have a facebook group and a couple of students have recently joined and posted saying that just got the phone call and were accepted off the waitlist.
So there is still hope for those waiting.
Hi everyone, I got into Temple Med yesterday so I am going to withdraw from Penn State on Monday. So hopefully that will clear up some things too!
oh thanks for letting us know!... I am waiting on Penn State... I hope they call me! I'm actually applying again if i dont get into penn state as I go to the Gtown SMP, but i dont want to spend the 60 thou to go there. or the 4-5 thou to apply again.. PLEASE PSCOM!
good luck at Temple!
When I've called, they say that they are letting people in 1 by 1 as spots open, so the class is all full up.
