Does anyone know when NJMS would contact you regarding a scholarship? I have been receiving financial aid materials but no information about potential scholarships. It would be helpful in knowing that before I make my decision. Thanks!
There are some merit-based partial scholarships that went out a couple weeks ago. I don't know if there are any other scholarships that haven't gone out yet.

Did anyone on the priority alternate list get any news today? I assumed we’d be hearing back at some point this week.

Does anyone get rejected? It kind of seems like you're either on the priority alternate list or alternate list as a soft rejection.

Probably ask how many applicants are left to take from priority. Given that I have to consider options from other schools, as well as other financial aid packages, it does seem reasonable to know if I actually have a chance with Rutgers.

What would you say? I know they sent that email asking for additional updates the other week
Dear NJMS ADCOM,

Thank you for your rejection letter but after careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me admission into the 2019 freshman class at Rutgers NJMS.

This year I have been extremely fortunate to receive rejections from the best and brightest medical schools across the country but due to my unique rejection criteria, I was unable to bring myself to accept your rejection.

Despite Rutgers NJMS's outstanding success in rejecting previous applicants, you simply did not meet my qualifications. Therefore, I will be attending Rutgers NJMS 2019 freshman class.

Thank you, and I cannot wait to see you this July.











(I don't know why but I feel like it's important to note that I didn't get rejected, I just like quipping)

Did you end up calling?

How does the situation compare with last year? When did the last round of confirmation for priority waitlist end?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe high priority WL started to hear back late May (like next week-ish) last year. This is n=1, but I know someone 2 cycles ago on the HPWL who did not hear back until mid-June. In terms of those on the regular alternate list, like myself, I have 0 idea when/if we will hear back anytime soon.

Yeah that's what the past forums for NJMS have shown, but with all the new CTE and PTE rules, I'm not sure how or when this is going to pan out for us

Hoping for some good news in the next couple weeks before I admit defeat and begrudgingly begin the re-application process :/

How are high priority waitlists looking this year? Maybe a little more movement later with the new changes to traffic?

I don’t think everyone on the WL posts to SDN, but compared to last year’s it’s looking pretty dead :/

Called over to admissions a few days ago, they said they haven't started pulling from the Priority WL yet because they haven't dropped below their max class size #. Didn't say when they would start pulling. Also said the WL is not ranked!

Likely, the majority of accepted students are PTE and not CTE, meaning that they may still be on waitlists at schools which they would prefer over NJMS. If they get off those waitlists and they change their PTE school, it will open up some more spots.

I feel like we would need to see a lot of waitlist movement from other schools at this point for a significant amount of PTE->CTE here. Seeming less likely...

I withdrew off the alternate priority list a few days ago. I'm not sure if it provides much insight, but I was WLed last year here as well after my interview March, and waited until late August before being told it wasn't going to happen. At the 2019 interview, multiple M1s said they believe they had a better chance because they applied early decision, and looking back, if Rutgers was my #1, that's what I would have done to secure the early interview and early spot. Don't give up hope, and best of luck, everyone!
