    So I called and they said we should hear in the next day or two and that it’s *possible* more acceptances are still going out for this week.

    Well this doesn't help the fact that I've been alternating between expecting a waitlist/R and small glimmers of hope that there are some more acceptances left lol. But at least there is still a chance...

    Thanks for calling! Seems as if the majority of acceptances still go through call which I find very odd but whatever haha

    Yeah, I feel you. I don’t want to get my hopes up just to be let down again. But yeah the person I spoke to said they assumed more were still gonna go out because I guess the person calling Friday didn’t finish. I really don’t want to give anyone false hope (myself included) but that’s what they said.

    My question is are people going to be given waitlist/rejection decisions as well this week? Does anyone know when the waitlist is forming?

    I took it as all decisions (acceptances, WL’s, R’s) for the groups that have been reviewed will go out via email this week.

    I received the acceptance call Friday! Literally, a dream come true, especially after getting waitlisted by my state school earlier during the week. Hang in there guys, hoping you all get in as well :)

    Open file with faculty for thirty minutes. You eat lunch and tour with a med student who also evaluates you.

    One, open-file faculty interview. There’s a “group” interview where you and a couple other applicants have lunch with a current student but it’s really casual and relaxed.

    Application status still = Ready. I wondering if they are waiting until after TX prematch to see if TX residents withdraw their applications?
