thats so true honestly. do you know if he will comment on md mph as well or would he only be able to tell me myYep, did it mid-Feb.
Have your pick: False hope, real hope, or crushed hopes. At least you get the option! More than I can say for most schools.
Can I ask when exactly you emailed him and what you said? I'm considering doing the same, but I don't want to overstep in my position as an applicant (in wording and questions asked, etc)!He replied this is what he said how exciting!
Thank you for your email and continued interest. I believe that your chances of coming off of the alternate list and getting a seat this year are very good. Perhaps within the next week.
Just use common sense man. In my opinion, this process is more real-world than we think.Can I ask when exactly you emailed him and what you said? I'm considering doing the same, but I don't want to overstep in my position as an applicant (in wording and questions asked, etc)!
When did you hear back? I interviewed same day and haven't heard anything (lol rip).Does anyone know how being put on the alternate list works? I thought everyone from the same interview date gets scored and then either accepted or waitlisted one the same list. If I was waitlisted before people on my same interview date have been accepted or waitlisted does that mean I’m super low on the alternate list?
Any chance you could say what school and how much scholarship you got?I asked Miami (delicately, of course) if they can match my scholarship offer at another school because this was my top choice, but alas, they said no. So I am withdrawing due to financial reasons, best of luck to everyone!
How long did it take them to match your scholarship after letting them know about it?guys i need help. been getting really conflicting information from people. I first got a 50% scholarship from another school and then emailed Weisman to let him know. I got offered a matching 50% from UM which im super grateful and never expected. some family/friends seem to think i should tell the other school to see if they can increase their initial offer. in the rare case they offer me lets say 75% some people think i should then use that new number to negotiate with UM. i really dont think i should do that because i feel unbelievably lucky to have gotten 50% from UM. Miller was my top choice so i reallly dont wanna push it. any thoughts?
does this include the diversity scholarship?Spoke to financial aid today. There might have been some confusion regarding need-based aid being distributed at a later date. If you've already received a scholarship, then you have already been considered for all types of scholarships and therefore that is the final amount the school is awarding you. UM seems to also have institutional donor loans but that is not to be confused with scholarship money. It's an entirely different matter which you would have to ask the financial aid director if you want to sign up for these loans. It seems that they are more borrower-friendly than the usual unsub and gradplus loans but the tradeoff being that you are disqualified from federal loan forgiveness programs.
Based on last year's thread, the "diversity scholarship" may actually refer to institutional donor loans awarded in consideration of diversity/need. That said, one of the M1s advised reaching out to Dean Symes (the diversity dean) if seeking out additional scholarships on the basis of diversity.does this include the diversity scholarship?
"Please come to school here" was really the gist of it. Pre-clinical curriculum is fully P/F now, unranked until the third year. They're incorporating some evidence-based stuff into their teaching, with more PBL and different kinds of videos that are not just someone speaking over a powerpoint. All non-mandatory lectures are recorded and posted online. Anatomy is now 14 weeks instead of 8, and the MD and MD/MPH tracks will be more in sync. Lots of opportunities to shadow and do research. And lots of opportunities to meet classmates and upperclassmen between the academic societies and service opportunities. The culture of the school seems very "work hard, play hard" and the students generally seem pretty content. Happy to answer specific questions if you want to PM me!Can someone recap what they said in 2nd look?
