Does MCG email you when they have their financial package put together or am I supposed to find it somewhere?

If we are waitlisted should we send in our official transcripts at this point?

Does anyone know if the academic calendar has been published yet, or when it will be?

Hey gang,
I made some calls about this today. I was told that the calendar is not yet finalized; they said it should be finished around the end of May. Orientation is 2-3 August and the first day of classes is 6 August. We will all have the same classes and test schedule, so we'll know when our test days are going to be for the whole year.

Does MCG email you when they have their financial package put together or am I supposed to find it somewhere?

I also contacted the financial aid counselor for the medical school by email asking about the timeline for financial aid award announcements. This was her reply:

"We won't start processing financial aid for incoming students until May/June timeframe. We have not received the final tuition and fee amounts yet, but expect to have them by the end of the month. We are also waiting on our Associate Director to set up our system to receive 12/13 documents. Please make sure to have your 12-13 FAFSA, GHSU Financial Aid Application and Direct Lending Entrance Counseling completed, so we can process your application.

What I can tell you is that the max a 1st year med student can receive in Unsubsidized aid is $42,722. Subsidized aid has been eliminated by the federal gov't for all professional students."

There's a financial aid application? Any idea where this application is located?

Do y'all think there will be any significant movement before May 15th or is that pretty much when most of the activity takes place? I want to be accepted so badly, and I wish I knew sooner than later so I can start planning. If I'm not accepted I don't know if I should reapply for next year, or just go to the Caribbean. It's going to be rough going through the application cycle again while trying to support myself in addition to having to start paying back student loans. I just wish I knew the best thing to focus on right now.

Called MCG today and was told that about 100 applicants got accepted off the waitlist last year. So, keep up the hope! :xf:

That's a bummer. Summer? That's pretty vague. Does anyone know if schools have to send out FA packages prior to May 15th?

I got in for the class of 2016 a while ago, but I'm just now thinking about where I'm going to live. What do most students do for housing? Is there anyone looking for a roommate? Are there any nice apartments near by?

Accepted off the waitlist yesterday! So happy - interviewed back in early December so it's been a long wait.

Good luck to everyone still waiting!

I called yesterday to see how many people had moved off of the waitlist, but they said they were not releasing that info.

Hey, do you guys think there will be some bulk movement off the waitlist around this time? I was under that impression but haven't seen a sign of it yet, at least not on here. Fingers crossed!

As I understand it, today is the day that med schools find out who has multiple acceptances and can then begin pressuring them to settle on one school. So, basically today is the beginning of an approximately month-long period of accelerated waitlist activity, but it will take a bit to get moving.
