Has anyone sent a letter of intent? Or do we think the “no additional materials” thing on the website applies to them too?

Rejected post-interview. Not an April fools prank, unfortunately.

Anyone who interviewed last week/recently: did a student contact you for the peer conversation yet? I have not heard anything

I think everyone is going to get that email if you accepted the Alternate list offer but they’re just a little behind in sending them out!

Just got my AL email, and I'm worried about this part:

May 1, 2019-Aug 4, 2019 Alternates who are listed by AMCAS as "Commit to enroll with another school" will have their alternate list offer withdrawn by SUNY Downstate.

Don't we have to commit to a school if we have at least one A? So unlike a waitlist, we have to come off the AL by the end of April or we're withdrawn automatically?

EDIT: Nevermind, I realized you don’t have to commit until later, you just have to “plan to enroll” at a single school after April 30. Confusing system.

I just got an email thanking me for responding to the acceptance offer but I had never been accepted. They then sent an email saying that was sent in error and I was actually supposed to get a thank you for responding about the alternate list.

No apology, just a callous email.

Very upset and disappointed- downstate clearly doesn’t appreciate how emotional this process is for applicants

Seems like everyone got waitlisted from the last handful of interviews. Guess they were just interviewing for the waitlist.
