    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.

    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??

    I feel they would have ranked ppl throughout the process. Idk why they would way to the very last minute to rank everyone

    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

    Well, I need to get a grip cause I read that and hoped that maybe they have pulled people off in a figurative sense and not yet sent out the emails, which is (obviously) illogical. Thank you for checking btw!

    I saw couple new people added to their facebook group this week so they probably accepted people but those people probably don't post on SDN

    Yeah I also find it really weird that no one on here would’ve been pulled off yet considering how many people reported getting waitlisted.

    Hmmm could be. Also those ppl could have chosen SLU last minute and just now joined the FB group. Yeah it's strange that no one on this SDN group has reported anything

    Maybe there are significantly fewer spots this year - reducing the odds of someone on SDN reporting being pulled.

    FB shows 185 and that includes 5 Admin. So if 180 of those finally going to SLU then do the math. They have 177 admitted last year as per MSAR.
