Because I am a crazy person, I went back and counted the past 3 years of WL acceptances that we’re posted on SDN and it’s been around an average of 20 people so it’s definitely not over! Even if it was filled again on that day people are still waiting for other WL decisions after all!Maybe my paranoia is taking over, but ~5 acceptances reported on SDN alone makes me wonder if they filled all the spots that opened up on April 30 in one fell swoop.

I worded it as a "financial barrier" and "the responsible decision". Then I said, "Ayyy lil mama, you got the green?" They then sent me an email stating I would need to take out $100,000 for the first year......... so I said, "YEET"Do you mind me asking how you went about asking them to match the other offer? Does Downstate generally not offer any additional money to students?
Sent you a PM! Would greatly appreciate any feedbackJust officially committed (woo). Got off the waitlist late last week. Sure plenty of spots will open up as it seems that waitlist movement usually peaks in mid-late May (committee likely has to meet again, students get 5 business days to make a decision, few more days to process, etc. etc.)
For anyone that gets off the waitlist, I would be happy to talk as I had trouble making a final decision and discussed this fact with numerous students, gaining a ton of valuable insight in the process.
Best of luck to everyone! Stay positive.
Sounds like you'll be getting that email from them soon!I finally saw Downstate in my select your medical school tool on amcas and I selected plan to enroll, however, I never received an email informing that I got off the waitlist. Should I be worried. Did I get too excited?
No clue. But if it isn't today I think, just based on the five day rule and the fact that they gave out acceptances these last two weeks that they might be sending out weekly acceptances till the CTE deadline.Are new acceptances sent all at the same time or is there still hope of getting an email today?
Definitely seems beneficial but giving up 5 weeks of what is essentially my last responsibility-free summer isn’t that enticing...Has anyone heard about the summer pre-matriculation program? I was just invited to it but it seems so sudden. Is it really that beneficial?
Looked it up online and is it only for CUNY students who are disadvantaged? That’s what it says on what I found, just trying to verify before I call their office to get more infoIts called "operation success." They pay for room and board and it's from June 17 - July 19. It's really soon and I also wanted to travel or work and save before making the move.
I think there’s a different program where CUNY undergrads come and do a Med school prep over the entire summer. It’s three phases. Their third phase is operation success, which is the part of the program admitted SUNY students can attend.Looked it up online and is it only for CUNY students who are disadvantaged?
