Those of you who paid the 100$ deposit, does the portal in which you paid it in change at all? I paid but my window timed out for some reason, but I did get an email receipt for the payment.

1. The questionnaire can be found on this link, Overview | Financial Aid | Albert Einstein College of Medicine and to the right there is a form titled "2019-2020 FAQ Einstein Incoming Students" . I think we need to fill this out in addition to FAFSA.
2. I haven't gotten the e-mail from Certiphi either, and I'm a bit nervous cause the e-mail says we need to complete and release report by May 17.
3. You should receive a separate e-mail with a link to submit deposit.
* Also, does anyone know if an OOS student can be considered for IS tuition after the first year?
Einstein is private. Everyone pays the same, so IS vs OOS doesn't matter.

Do the people who got accepted off the HPWL last friday mind sharing when they interviewed and were first waitlisted? Has anyone who was waitlisted in late April or May gotten off? Thanks!

What are the chances of getting in if I got a "regular" waitlist email/ not the HPWL one? Is there anything I can do to increase my chances - besides for letter of intent etc.?

When were you accepted and when did you have all the financial aid forms in?
I was accepted last Friday. I had my FAFSA in beforehand and after acceptance faxed in their finaid questionnaire along with a copy of me and my parents' 2017 tax returns, which I already had on hand. They turned it around pretty quickly!

I also got zero aid and all loans, but I guess a part of me was expecting it.. :( (Same acceptance timeline as above^)
Same and my parents are super broke. I think I literally would’ve had to have had ZERO income to qualify. Still going though.

Anyone get less aid than their demonstrated need? There's about a 20k difference for me, how are we supposed to cover the rest?
Do you mean loans? You get up to 42k unsubsidized and the gap left you fill with grad plus loans, which wouldn't be included in your finaid package

Has anyone called yet to see if the class is full? The facebook group is at 189 people but I'm not sure how many people are current students :oops:
Current student here. That FB page has a LOT of us in it. That said, I would assume the class is full at this point, and waitlist movement will be as needed as people drop their acceptances for other schools. That's how it worked when I applied anyway (I got in off the waitlist).

Thank you for the insight! I'm just surprised there has only been one day of acceptances post 4/30. Hopefully there's more coming soon

Has anyone’s background check passed yet? Still waiting on mine
I got mine back yesterday after starting it the 15th! I also lived out of the country for a minute, so I think it should be a shorter timeline if you haven’t. Also, you can definitely call, I called after I had not received the initial email and they were super quick to look me up!

I submitted mine late Tuesday night, so I assume it only started on Wednesday. But I called them and they only said it’s in progress. Really worried because I want to get it in by the deadline
