Hey Everyone,
I interviewed 1/26 and was placed on the alternate list on 3/14 with the letter stating that the class was already full. I'm :xf: and hoping to get called up for a spot. Based on last year's thread there was some movement. Is there anyone else out there holding out for a seat?:confused:

Your chances are looking pretty damn good if you're on the alternate list. I'm on the 'hold for spring' list, and its looking pretty damn bleak down here. Best of luck.

From what I read, there were people who go off the hold list so I think you still have a shot. Is there any current students who can comment on that?

Also on "hold for spring consideration." I remember reading in last year's thread that almost everyone on alt. list got in. Good luck man.

Hey everyone,
Finished getting my alternate materials in and am now waiting for a call. For anyone on either waitlist, I would def get your FAFSA done because it is super annoying.

Anyways, I went through the thread from this year and tried to compile everyone who posted in our position and acceptances which have already been withdrawn. If you want to add please do. Also, if anyone gets some news please share so we can all have an idea when the wave of movement begins.

Since its been a week, I figured I would try to bump this. I saw ClicheBomb called admin about the hold list and found out they would be reviewed end of May/ beginning of June. Spring Consideration? Really? I hope those of you on there get a shot. I'm hoping for some movement come May15th even though this wait is becoming agonizing.

I would say best of luck @ Yale, but if you got into a school like that, I doubt you need any luck!:D

Just spoke with admissions about "hold for Spring" - finally understand why its called that. They are waiting for the Spring semester to finish - am I the only one that didn't quite catch on to that name?? Haha oh well makes sense now.

The admissions lady I spoke to was nice, she said if you have any additional materials you want added to your application get them in within the next couple of weeks.

Good luck to everyone!

I'd like to add that additional material isn't necessary to get in. I got in directly from the hold without submitting updates.But if they told you to send stuff in, then you probably should (as long as it's important).

Send materials. Send an update letter, or a letter of intent, or some type of letter saying that you are interested in going to Downstate. You got nothing to lose.

Hey everybody, no official word but I checked my admissions checklist and I now have the option to pay a deposit and there is a new criminal background requirement with a red X. The link to pay works. I hope this is not a glitch and a sign that May 15th wave of movement is coming. Anyone else have this on their checklist?

Sounds to me like you have an acceptances on the way. Hate to jump the gun, but congrats man. (almost all alt-list students ended up getting acceptances last cycle so it shouldn't really be a surprise anyway)

Maybe it's just me, but it doesn't seem like there have been nearly as many applicants alternate listed this year compared to the past two years of SDN threads.

Just went though last year's thread and saw that (very) few people on Spring hold were accepted soon after May 15. But this year they're saying that the Spring hold list will be reviewed late June...?

My friend also got accepted. Dated 5/4, but the letter was only opened today because it got lost through the pile of packages in the building. Same, through UPS. Good luck to everyone else who is still waiting.

I had a call this morning asking if I was still interested in being considered as part of the "On Hold" list. I said yes, very interested. Interviewed on 2/16, on hold 4/21.

The call is a great thing - I got mine yesterday morning and received an acceptance package today. However I was on the alternate list. Good luck!

Thanks so much for the heads up. I was beyond nervous all weekend but sure enough the acceptance package arrived in the mail today. I guess the long weekend made the mail a little crazy. The package said it was supposed to be delivered on Saturday. Good luck to all the other people still waiting!

Has anyone else on hold had a recent status change with an "accepted/alternate" checklist now on their status page? Does this mean I've been accepted or bumped up to Alternate? Or does this show for those on hold as well?

I just noticed this for me too... I haven't checked that page in a while so I have no idea how recent that change is, but I haven't gotten any letter or email about a status change either. It might just be there so we can start the forms in case we do get in off the hold list later.

My status page was updated with the "accepted/alternate" checklist too (no option to pay deposit though). I also got a packet (dated 05/29) today from Downstate saying that I've moved onto the alternate list.
