Same... so I guess that leaves around 40k to take out in private loans (if parents can't help)? Disappointing
Nah, federal unsubsidized is up to 42k but you can take the rest out in grad plus. Sucks but I'd rather have that than privaye

Ohhh I see. Yeah, the gradplus loan was listed on my financial aid packages from other schools but not this one, so I wasn't sure. Thanks

Interviewed a week ago and got the R. What a pity, I liked the place. At least they gave me a fast response. Looks like the application cycle is finishing up.

Weird question but i know Einstein does competency based admissions now, so if you’re accepted you don’t have to worry about completing any other course work right?

Any word on when WL movement might be occurring? It seems like it generally starts in late spring, but I'm wondering if the new deadlines might speed things up this year.

Waitlist movement started last monday! Unsure if we will see any more before April 30th, but I hope so!!

Should I be concerned I haven't gotten my post-interview decision and they have started accepting people off the waitlist? (interviewed early March)

Beats me. I'm in the same position (except I interviewed in October). I asked if they had a timeline and I was told, "you'll know the when the admission committee comes to a decision." What a lovely truism haha. Guess all options are on the table: A, WL, or R.

My guess is that most us interviewed for the waitlist. I'm sure we will see much more WL movement after April 30. On MSAR, Einstein grants about 75 acceptances from a waiting list of about 275.

Anyone know if those of us who haven't received any scholarships have a chance of receiving them after traffic day?

Is the Financial Aid page that they emailed us about actually final? I can call the office tomorrow, just wondering if anyone knows.

It's weird because my estimated family contribution is 0, but that seems unlikely since I'm from a pretty middle income type range. Plus I put a small but non-zero amount of money I was expected to be given by my family for the 2019-2020 cycle which is not reflected on the page either.

Also, I emailed them about matching another aid offer and it was never mentioned at all in their subsequent financial aid emails.

Would someone be able to quote what the rolling admissions email says? I appreciate it.
"I am happy to inform you that the Committee on Admissions has completed its review of your application, and was very impressed with your academic strengths, and your service to your school and community. At this time, we are now in rolling admissions status.

We appreciate how important this status may be to you, and we want to be able to answer your questions, and support you through the remainder of the application process as much as we can.

We are eager to hear how you feel about possibly attending Einstein, and would appreciate your responding directly to this email. In addition, please check the appropriate box on the following webpage: Waiting List | Admissions | MD Program | Education | Albert Einstein College of Medicine"

So are they looking for a quick "Yes, I'd still love to attend Einstein" for a response or a heartfelt multi-paragraph letter of interest in response to this email?

So what’s the consensus on this email? Is it HPWL? Is there a Realistic chance of getting off (relative to other waitlists)?
I think this cycle and in past cycles, the “rolling admissions” email that asks you to show your interest through a direct email reply is the HPWL. Almost all applicants admitted this late in the cycle have historically been from the HPWL. But the admissions committee says there’s only one waitlist so take this speculation with a grain of salt I guess

What are they looking for in the direct email reply? A brief "I'm still interested" or a full essay detailing why we love Einstein?

Not sure what it is EXACTLY they’re looking for but I just said why Einstein is a good fit for me and reiterated what I bring to the school in a paragraph or 2. Straightforward and succinct.

Have they historically taken a lot of people from this group?
