I was making one strictly for wait list to buffalo as I saw previous years had done the same unless this seems unnecessary
Wouldn't wait list movement start earlier because of the new 4/30 deadline? Even more of a reason to get pumped!The last scheduled interview date is coming up (April 22, 2015), so we should see movement on the waitlist before too much longer.
Based on last year's thread, it looks like the waitlist started moving on May 5th, 2014 (Monday). If they follow the same general schedule, we should expect movement on:
Monday, May 4th, 2015
Here are some past years' thread, for your reference
Done!Hey guys, it looks like we managed to get duplicate threads for the 2014-2015 UB Waitlist. The other one has seen more activity, so let's continue over there.
(Under Pre-Medical Allopathic [MD])
Perhaps a mod will decide to merge the two?
Theoretically, we could hear back any time.Any ideas on when we will hear back?
Hello, I am currently waitlisted for UB med school, and I have submitted two letters of updates (one last year December and one early this year). Do you think it is good idea to send another one (which will be last letter I will submit) as an update/intent to attend? Just wondering since I have heard that letters following waitlist decision do not affect the final decision. But still I want to keep them updated.Hi guys,
MS1 at UB here. I was waitlisted in Jan last year, and accepted in mid June. The waitlist does move a lot. Also, the admission from different schools also definitely talk to each other, so if you have many WLs, it might take longer for them to decide. For now, interview season is coming to an end. So there is not much you can do. However, I do believe that y'all did your absolute best. Get out there and enjoy the nice weather. Do something fun and wild, because once you get into med school, it is LOCKDOWN time lol. Don't stress. Don't hesitate to ask me any questions about UB.
I would send an update if you in fact DO have significant stuff to update on. I would also send an intent to attend if you INDEED intent to attend. Like I said, you wanna be ethical about letter of intent because admissions do talk to one another. Sending multiple letters of updates that actually have legitimate updates definitely wouldn't hurt. However, it doesn't push you candidacy from a 1/10 to a 9/10 if you catch my drift. Nevertheless, if you and another candidate have similar credential, a school would take you if you are actively updating and showing interest compared to the other one who is idle.

So the 15th was the last day of interviews (congratulations Sarah, btw!!), and the decisions were rendered today...I'm guessing we can expect to see the same email last year's wait list received, about the class being filled, soon. And the list will start moving after that? I'd think that a few people might be pulled off of the top of the wait list before, if they need to fill a few spots to get to 144, but all the movement last year happened after that email went out on April 30th.last week was the last week of interviews. My fate is being decided tomorrow D:
Perhaps this means the expected timetable is pushed forward a week b.c. they finished interviews a week earlier than last year?Was accepted from the WL on Friday (4/24). Interviewed on 12/10 and waitlisted on 12/18. I won't be accepting the offer of admission, so good luck to those hoping for good news from UB!
[From April 30, 2014]"Dear UB Medical Candidate,
The Admissions Committee has finished its interviewing, and we have filled our 2014 Freshman Medical Class.
Our Wait List is a ranked list, and as an opening occurs during the Spring and Summer, we will immediately accept the next highest ranked candidate off the Wait List. This "Rolling" process will continue until Monday, August 11th - which is our first day of Freshman orientation.
At this time, Dr. Severin has decided not to break the Wait List into "thirds". If he changes his mind in the weeks ahead, the "applicant status check" on our internet site would automatically reflect this change.
If you are accepted to another Medical School and no longer wish to remain on our Wait List, it would be courteous to advise us as soon as possible.
I appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter"
Thanks for the specifics! Knowing the time the email went out - even though it likely has no bearing on when future emails will go out - makes my OCD a little less intense. LOLAccepted off the waitlist today around 2:45 via email. I interviewed 4/1, waitlisted 4/9. I will be accepting the spot. Best of luck to everyone still on the waitlist it looks like its starting to move.
