    ED is always a tough call as I had spoken to my pre-med advisor about it in the past. The best option might just be to apply early in June to 10 schools that you think you have a great chance instead of risking ED, as the downside is if you don't get it you're delayed until September-October...

    **for that matter more than 10 would be optimal, but applying early is the key factor instead of getting verified in August-Sept

    Taken directly from AMCAS website about withdrawing application: "The initial $160 application fee is non-refundable, but your payment(s) for each additional school whose deadline has not passed will be refunded."

    You'll get most of your money back in the event you get accepted off the waitlist over the summer

    I am also curious about this. I thought they are not accepting anyone until they know how many seats are available in late-May.

    :( I'm sorry to hear that, honestly it's hard to try to understand how ad coms work altogether. Maybe you could e-mail and ask if they could give you feedback? I saw you're already in a school though, so it's definitely not the end of the world! You'll be a great docta wherever you end up I'm sure

    They went 15 deep into the alternate list last year. The list had 100 people on it I was told. I think they might have changed the way they're doing it this year though because they have changed their admissions software and organized the interview day differently this year too. Plus, I don't remember anyone getting rejected pre-waitlist last year from the thread, whereas that already seems to have happened quite a bit this year.

    Wow only 15? That is quite disappointing.... In the email this year they say "in years past NEOMED has made a significant number of admission offers to alternate list candidates." If 15 is a significant number for them I would be scared and disappointed... I hope this year they are accepting more people...

    The class is only around 35 seats for Direct Entry so even if they offer more than 15, it probably wouldn't make a significant difference.

    Understand. I guess I was spoiled by some comments in the past years. Some commented 2 years ago that the list of separated into 3 tiers and they accepted people down to mid tier. Assuming 100 people were on the list, mid tier would rank in the 30s. My guess was maybe they handed out 30 offers and around 15-20 people accepted there offers. I understand they might have changed their way of accepting people though.

    I believe that the process you described is correct. They may have accepted more than 15 people, but ultimately some of them withdrew. Therefore, they accepted more than the 15 they intended to enroll.

    Interesting...but does that mean they have already accepted 20 Direct Entry candidates? I don't get the feeling that so many people have been accepted based on SDN, but who knows. I too have heard the admissions process is a bit different this year (but I have nothing to compare it to personally haha)

    Bacc/MD candidates interviewed on 4/6 and will find out around 5/1 if they were accepted or denied. Maybe after then all of you will start seeing some waitlist movement.

    Wouldn't the bacc/MD candidates who interviewed this year be applying for a guaranteed spot in the medical school for a future year? It was my understanding that was how it works.

    Just received an email from neomed indicating that the survey for alternate list will be available on April 21 and 22. It also says "The next round of M1 offers will be made prior to April 30th. Alternate list updates will occur on about the same timeline."

    I'm a bit confused about what that means. Does the "next round of M1 offers" include people from alternate list or it only includes people from accelerated program and those who can be accepted without being placed on the list?

    Yeah, long time no see haha. I will definitely keep you posted, please let me know if you get any information as well. I did not get an email today since i'm technically not waitlisted (yet). So it looks like they'll be ranking the waitlist this year? That would definitely be nice.

    Idk if it's just my paranoia (because I have such poor internet connection rn), but once we complete the alternate list survey, are we supposed to receive anything via email confirming our choice? Or will it just be zilch communication 'til after the 27th? I hope NEOMED received my response and my internet didn't glitch out on me.

    You are correct. I just thought that perhaps the Admissions committee was wrapping all that up before moving back to Direct Entry.

    The wait has been tough this week. They'll know exactly who are on the list within a day and first batch of acceptances will go out within 4 days! Really can't wait.

    My dad said I received something in the mail from NEOMED and he's waiting for me to open it, but I'm currently out of town for a week. Totally wasn't expecting it, thought they'd email first. Could it be an update in the alternate list?

    Hope it's good news!

    Just received an email with my waitlist position! There is one line that is making me worried.

    "We anticipate your ranking potentially changing once in late May, and then it will remain in effect for the duration of the 2017 admission cycle"

    The question is... will the waitlist ranking position move down or up? Any thoughts?

    I would say in May positions will move up because some people will get in.

    I am way too low in positions (in the 50s) I probably won't get in :( Nice riding the application train with you guys. Good luck to all of you.
