    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?

    Every school rejects people. If you don’t get in by the time school starts you we’re rejected.

    But that leads to a rejection if you’re not accepted off the waitlist...

    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.

    Don't think so. From what I remember, everyone who was on the waitlist gets offered a spot on the alternate list.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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??

    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?

    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
