That is true. Everyone is on the waitlist.
Are you being facetious or is everyone actually put on the alternate instead of outright rejection?
Hmm this doesn't seem right. The alternate list email definitely said they selected competitive applicants for the waitlist and that it's ranked.
I have heard that it’s ranked, although my email about the waitlist never said anything about ranking. Do anyone know how it’s ranked? Thanks.
I did not find anyone mentioning rejection post-II on sdn for SLU in the past few years. This unlikely to happen if they do reject people. I am not 100% sure though lol.
Could someone confirm if SLU does post-II rejections?
lol someone asks this question every year and no one gives an answer. Its like the amount of licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop..... The world may never know.
Every school rejects people. If you don’t get in by the time school starts you we’re rejected.
Thats not an outright rejection, thats being waitlisted.
But that leads to a rejection if you’re not accepted off the waitlist...
Any interviewees from the last week of Feb get a decision this week?
I interviewed the last week of Feb and was told my file was presented to the committee on 4/11. She then said it may take 1-2 more weeks for a decision.
Alternate listed today
Just got an email asking if I wanted to stay on the alternate list.
Just Got the alternate list reconfirmation email. The time is coming !
Do have a friend of a friend who got rejected post interview this cycle.
Also alt listed.
My number/email/address hasn't changed since I've applied so I;m not doing anything
Alternate list today. Interviewed late February.
got the same email as well.
I assume from previous years threads that this means that higher on the waitlist?
Don't think so. From what I remember, everyone who was on the waitlist gets offered a spot on the alternate list.
Withdrawing from alternate list. Good luck everybody
Has everyone on the waitlist received an e-mail about information update?
Withdrawing my acceptance. Hope it goes to one of you guys on the alternate list!
I thought you got the email?
Has any other accepted student noticed that their slu.edu account has a Firecracker tab on it? Does SLU pay for a Firecracker account for each student?
Edit: For those who are curious, apparently SLU is providing Firecracker for their students starting this next year.
Is there a deadline to accepting the financial aid offer? I didn't get any scholarship but got offered options for loans
Just declined my acceptance - hope one of you receive it
Yeah we got Firecracker this year. The administration works in conjunction with Firecracker to provide us some quizzes that go hand-in-hand with our course. This is the first block (neuro) that they have tried it with.
We also get UWORLD provided to us next year
Withdrew my acceptance. Hope it goes to one of you!!
I just read in the old post from last year that they’re sent out in batches. And if you got one when people first posted about it you’re most likely in the first batch and therefore higher up
That was two years ago. Last year, everyone received the waitlist update at the same time. This year, nobody complained about not receiving the update on 16th. So I guess they no longer send the notifications out in batches.
Withdrew my acceptance. Best of luck to everyone!
Withdrew my acceptance yesterday.
Best of luck to everyone!!
Admissions said they started the process when i called two days ago. Now I’m thinking she meant they started to meet about the alternate list
Isn't it a ranked list? What more is there to do besides sending out the emails in order as spots open up??
Probably they need to rank everyone first.
I didn’t want to peeve admissions with too many questions at once but i have no idea !
It should be ranked. The email I got asking if I wanted to stay on the alternate list said: "As you know, your file is complete and the Committee on Admissions has assigned you a position on the alternate list." Doesn't that mean they have already assigned ranks? Or is that just them telling me that my assigned position is simply on the alternate list?
Holyyyyyy i totally skipped over the “has assigned you a position” part.
I called them a while back about the alternate list and they said it was a “static” ranked alternate list. I assumed that meant they ranked us and our ranking wouldn’t change over time. But who knows lol
I think were getting closer to them cracking the code for us haha
Does anyone know what the "miscellaneous" fees for first-year ($6,670) covers?
Any1 call to see when waitlist movement will start?
Just called and they said theyve started to pull people off
So probably there are people off the waitlist, but they are not on sdn.
