maybe. seems too early to say though based on what's been posted here.
well think about it, if 2 people have already been accepted on sdn, it's not unreasonable to assume that 24 people total have been accepted (or will be), since I imagine the majority of applicants wouldn't post their acceptances on sdn.

well they haven't finished interviews yet, I don't think they'd accept all 24 before interviews are over. Dean Barlev said on my interview day that nobody is interviewing for waitlist spots, everyone is interviewing for an actual seat in the class. I would imagine that what is happening is exactly what they told us- a handful of acceptances have been sent out, and the remaining acceptances will be sent out in the next week/1.5 weeks. I hope that waitlist/rejection emails are sent out in the same time frame so we all know where we stand.

Ah yeah, you are right I remember him saying that too now that you mention it.

Do ya'll think there will be anyone who turns down their acceptance to this program or is it really going to be just 24 acceptances for 400 interviews.

I think there'll be a few people who will. It might be free, but some people will be scared off by the fact that it's a new school, and people may have gotten into more established schools they'd prefer to go to.

I think there will be some people who don't accept it, but very few, because of the time of year. Not enough to justify like 40 acceptances, so they'll likely only give out 24 and move from there based on when applicants commit.

I'll be interested to see what the overall stats/background of the class ends up being; if it ends up just being top stats people then they should have interviewed more conservatively, but if there is a range of stats then they were clearly looking for a specific type of person so they had to interview liberally.

Yeah that makes sense. It seems like they're doing a truly holistic review from what I've seen here and on my interview day.

To speak to this, I have very modest stats when it comes to gpa and mcat. I certainly am not in the top tier of applicants when it comes to this. I have a lot of professional experience in public health grant funded programs (HIV/STD, Chronic Disease Prevention) which is think they really liked. Obviously I can only speculate on the reasons for my acceptance.

That's so refreshing to hear! I feel like I'm in the same boat when it comes to stats. Do you think you'll be going there in the fall?

Yup and decision should be coming soon.
MArcng- are you saying that based off of previous posts and info, or did you interview recently/today and have new things that dr.barlev may have said to share with your anxious peers?

Well, that was entirely based on what I was told during my interview 3 weeks ago and the email sent by Dr. Barlev. I have no new info though.

Someone on the choosing between schools board posted about choosing between this school and Brown so I’m thinking they were accepted as well. No info about their stats.
