    Hopefully whoever read your app recognized it wasn’t from you, but that sure sucks for the other person!

    My friend called today and apparently the admissions office said the deferred list is now the waitlist. Kind of confused since the email explicitly stated that the deferred list is not the same as the waitlist. Might call tomorrow, stay tuned. For now, the anxiety continues :yeahright:

    Attention everyone: I just called Drexel and spoke to Ms.Johnson. I asked in very specific words I asked if you interviewed and got the deferred email are you now on the waitlist? Even though the January email I received says this is not the waitlist?.She responded "
    It has now turned in to the waitlist and will remain active until school begins."
    I hope this brings a tiny bit of peace of mind.

    Well that’s super frustrating. Anyone know how the WL works here? Ranked, unranked?

    I was told so please do not quote me that each time a slot is available it is fair game for everyone. But I find it hard to believe they look at 350 people each time. It must be secretly ranked. When I asked Kareem that she said it is privileged

    this is what I was told but again I apply my disclaimer. It would have been hard to just send a blast email to everyone stroking out and say that the deferred list is now the waitlist.

    That's a ridiculous amount. Maybe there are 350 slots on the waitlist but the amount of us actually on the waitlist is much less. I don't know if that's true but I want it to be true so I'm going to believe it lol

    IT is a fact you don't have to make yourself believe it. Look at the new MSAR 350 waitlisted last year and only 25 got off it. There will be a lot of movement in the next 3 weeks people will want their deposits back who are holding at multiple schools( must be nice). By 4/30 is deadline for your money back . Also an odd piece of info last year they matriculated 256 but the class size says 260 and in other years they are 260-262 IDK about that. Hope you feel a little better with this info
    One last thing acceptances are until AUGUST 11th for this year. Thats another 127 days of the unknown

    you must be the most insecure person to have to point out a typo. you're in school why not attend and leave us to suffer. You are so mean spirited for no reason. Is this how your ego is fed and you are the reason there are bullies in this world

    ...what in the world? I was making a statement of fact. Better to make that mistake here than in an official correspondence. Placing you on ignore officially. Quit attacking me.

    So what if we recently interviewed? Was it mostly for a spot on the waitlist?

    I think it will help cuz people may drop acceptances after traffic day and the school may be sending out decisions shortly after.

    What's going on with the Class of 2022 FB page? It looks like no one has been accepted into it.

    Dear god I hope you grow out of this mentality.
    You immediately start attacking anyone who proves you wrong or corrects you. If you want to be a medical professional, much less a medical student, you are going to have to work with people who call you out for being wrong, or otherwise have different lines of thinking from you. You're going to be wrong sometimes, you're going to be right sometimes. Get over yourself, no one is attacking/bullying you, realize its an opportunity to grow.

    Thinking of withdrawing from my acceptance at Drexel. Do I simply just withdraw my application from the portal or do I have to email them? And does anyone know how the refund for the deposit works? Will it be automatic.

    Sincerely hope someone on here will be able to take my spot!

  35. Interviews are obviously over, and I would just like some closure on my file. Is it appropriate to withdraw our application since we haven't received an official rejection? Thanks!

    You can if you want, but it isn’t necessary.

    It seems like the admissions committee hasn't released any decisions in a few weeks.

    Has anyone heard back after 3/27? Or does anyone know when the next decisions should be coming?

    Did most people hear back around the 8 week mark? They gave us a time frame but not too sure when I should expect anything from early march
     
  42. I was past the 10 week mark when I withdrew pre-decision, and according to last year's thread, some people waited as long as 12 weeks.

    That's what I think too. I'm guessing Drexel isn't the top choice for a lot of people who are already holding seats in the class. Those students are waiting to hear back from other schools but are keeping their seat at Drexel as a safety. Even after April 30, people can hold seats but they'll lose their deposit ($100 is not a lot so I can imagine many students do this). If you look at the difference in MCAT scores from Accepted Students to Matriculated Students, there is a sizeable drop (I think like 3 points, with a big shift in the distribution of scores as well). This is because those students with higher stats are giving up their seats when they get other offers and the students from the deferred group/waitlist, with lower stats, take those seats and end up matriculating. I'm staying hopeful knowing that there is a lot of movement for this school in particular.

    tl;dr - Hold on, the dawn is approaching...

    Who knows? Maybe they are also reviewing people for a few more days. Deferral basically means that they wanted to put us up against everyone, right?

    Maybe they have X number of seats to give out and they wanted to compare all of March dates like a kind of non rolling type thing. Especially since people had to rearrange and cancel due to storms and weather.

    My deferred email said that deferred =/=WL FWIW. Is it worth it to send them a letter before traffic day?
