    I haven't checked, but am doing so right now - it was a very welcome surprise email.

    EDIT: It's already updated to say the interview has been scheduled, so I'm not sure if it changed before. I know it didn't say anything about it yesterday when I checked.

    Multiple interviews at the same school, eh? They must really like you.

    Do you know if Wake super scores your MMI, or is it just your highest score? ;)

    You'll love it. Wake was my first interview, and they definitely set the bar SUPER high. If I don't get an acceptance next week, I will be completely devastated!

    Does Wake review applications regardless of complete date? I was complete early August but haven't heard anything, while it seems as though many people who were complete after me have already been rejected, etc.

    I think they send them out in batches every week or two - it took at least a few days to receive mine.

    From what I remember seeing here, they actually have another round of interviews today. So I expect them to send decisions at the earliest in the mid afternoon if not the end of the day. On that note, fingers crossed for everybody!

    Soooo, not to make everybody start compulsively checking their email, but I just got an ACCEPTANCE! And it freaked me out, because I was expecting a phone call - seeing the email led me to believe it would be a rejection. Lol

    Didn't get an email but i neurotically checked my portal and saw "Your application is on the wait list and under active consideration. You will be notified of any status change.". I'm not sure about it since I haven't gotten an email yet, but I'm guessing I've been waitlisted. Definitely a hard pill to swallow because I really love this school and the area. Since there isn't any movement on waitlist until after the multiple acceptances deadline passes, I'll keep checking back every once in a while. According to MSAR, wake takes 25-35% of their incoming class from waitlist, so I do have my fingers crossed for that.

    Hi! Does anyone know how the waitlist procedure works? Are the applications of waitlisted candidates put aside until after the multiple admissions deadline, or are they continually considered? Just wondering because it would be nice to know if we're not going to hear back until the spring. Thanks.

    Waitlisted too. The MSAR says "Acceptance from the waitlist usually happens after June 1 of each cycle."

    It was totally gorgeous. I already knew this was my top choice for various reasons, but now that I've seen it, I'm going to be really upset if I have to go anywhere else.

    Guys... they have four houses just like Hogwarts! And there's a house cup and everything! Apparently Yellow House has won it every year since they started having it. I think this may have been one of the things that made me the most excited, if that doesn't come across as ridiculous. I never did the traditional college experience - only lived on campus one year but was too busy with work to participate in activities. Once I moved off campus I just went to class and never came to school for anything else.

    The students stay in their same houses all four years, plus stay in the same small groups of people, working longitudinally together over the years. I'm really looking forward to actually getting to know people in a deeper, more meaningful way. I want an acceptance here so bad!

    One of the admissions staff said today that they might pull people off the waitlist in December, actually, just depending on how things go. She said otherwise we won't hear back until May.

    Is it worth it to send an update about a published scientific book chapter, a new volunteering role with teaching/underserved schools, as well as continued clinical volunteering that I just began on my primary?

    I sent updates to other schools but I didnt know they allowed one here
