Does anyone think there will be more or less waitlist movement after June 1st?

Has anyone tried to request an extension to the June 1st CTE deadline here? If so, how did you do so?
I don’t understand your quandary, @hiraeth9 . At the deadline you make your decision with the information you have at that time.
Don’t lose a yes for a maybe!

Edited to add: look at the May 3 post by SOM Adcoms on this issue

it's a soft/hard deadline tbh. Like they say its a hard deadline but at second look they said if you miss it they will contact you and try to get a hold of you before releasing you. They mentioned they would call 1-2 times at second look. While I don't remember them talking about extensions they would definitely allow you to take your time.

ALL - requesting an extension to the June 1 CTE deadline requires communication to our office with 1) reason for the extension and 2) specific time/date requested.

No communication by June 1 does not equal an extension.

How long after June 1st would the office be willing to consider extensions for?
@hiraeth9, The post by the SOM admissions dean clearly advises you to communicate with them directly (probably by phone) and give a valid reason for extension request as well as your end date. Posting on SDN is not the same as communicating with the admissions office! :eek::oops:

Are you willing to share how many students CTE'd this year? and what the avg age of matriculants is? Thanks!

O M G! Just got the call! I’ve been waiting on THIS!
Congrats!!! I hope waitlist movement is continuing. If you’re on their FB page, does it seem like a lot of people have been accepted off the waitlist??

Hey! I don’t know because I haven’t checked out the page yet. Do you know where I can find the link?

I'm currently applying to TCU and I have no info about the stats of the accepting class so for those who were accepted how competitive were your stats? I'm IS with LM of 70. My GPA is stellar but MCAT is average

That's about where my LM was and I was fortunate enough to be accepted. I think you will be fine in that regard. Just be sure to really check out the mission of the school because that is truly a huge part of this school. Lots of place just say holistic, but it really means something here. Good luck!
