Bad news guys...the lady I spoke to said the class is full at the moment. She also said there is waitless movement going on, but it's very slow just because the class is full. I pushed, and she said she doesn't expect there to be much more to happen. Don't know how accurate this info is, I'm sure they are getting inundated with calls, and are just giving short answers.
Darn that sucks. Thanks for calling though!

This really sucks if true. It’ll probably be a slow movement up to a month before classes begin :/

Did you speak to the person who picks up the phone when you call the admission office or to someone else?

To the person who picked up the phone. I asked if she could transfer me to someone that could accurately answer my question, but she didn't, which is why I'm actually not putting much stock into what was said.

Gotcha. I called today and she didn't tell me anything just transferred me to the admissions director voicemail :(

It was probably the same person; she was a little short with me. Understandably, but it's still irritating on our end.

Hi there friends!! I just got off the phone with Mike Woodson. He said that waitlist movement will start within the next two weeks because although there is the April 30th deadline some schools aren't as strict with it. I asked if he anticipated similar amount of waitlist movement as last year (which was very low if you check last years thread you will see them chatting about this) he said he anticipates MORE waitlist movement as a lot of the medical schools UNDER admitted due to the new AMCAS regulation. All good things <3 we shouldn't give up yet :)

Deciding between here and another school... I think the deciding factor comes down to lifestyle. Can any current students speak to how difficult classes are, work life balance (or I guess school life balance), and your overall happiness at Tulane? Thanks!!

Work life balance is almost too good. Tulane students really are some of the happiest, they’re just more often then not in an absurd about of debt.

I hope we hear back soon:( I've been delaying signing a lease on a place by the DO school I'm admitted to because I'm trying to wait for Tulane. It's getting harder and harder to put my life on hold for what seems to be a tiny glimpse of hope.
Which is the irritating part about students holding on to several acceptances because they can't just choose one (although they already know which school they are going to select).

It's honestly rather absurd that they don't even tell us what our rank is. It would be very helpful to know if I'm next in line or there are 50 people ahead of me. I really can't believe its "unranked"

YES!!! Whereas my family is holding off putting down a lease on a place, but if we knew Tulane wasn't even going to happen for us, we'd just go for it elsewhere.

Can someone tell me what is on the MSAR this year? How many are on the waitlist and how many are pulled from the waitlist?
Typical Number of waitlist positions per cycle
250

Number of acceptance offers granted to applicants on the waitlist
Not Provided (You didn't really think they would make it that easy, did you?:()

Since about 600 are interviewed, this would mean that 350 were accepted for 190 spots? So tulane overenrolled?

I don't think so. In past years, Tulane also rejected people post interview. Notice this says "typical" number of waitlist positions per cycle. This seems like some kind of composite average. Which obviously isn't going to be useful to us with the new traffic rules and the precautions that schools are taking.

When you say openings are coming very slowly - do you mean that you don't anticipate more of them?
I don’t necessarily know tbh, all I gathered was there was one spot available yesterday but had no further information on last week! I really can’t say what is to come in the weeks ahead! Apparently they are working hard and staying vigilant on where they are with the class and doing their best with making sure they can get people off the waitlist ASAP!
