SUC email received just now.
I also SUC
SUC as well.
SUC...this SUCks (lol)
Well I can break up the monotony with a post-interview rejection
Also rejected... Washington resident,
LizzyM 80.8. Not sure what to think.
I was in the same boat last year and remember very well how it felt. Keep your head up man
Only interview so far so not pumped off this news.
rejected post interview the second time....mind is blank at this point
What is this SUC everyone is talking about
Still under consideration.
Add me to it. +1
I have not interviewed yet (haven't even scheduled it), but heads up people!
Rejected IS. Really thought i was a good fit and loved the program, this is rough.

Let the new phase of anxious waiting begin!
Sorry to hear folks got rejected today that's always hard I know what its like. A reminder that if you don't get in somewhere else UW does offer a thorough examination of why you didn't get in and can clarify what you can improve as a reapplicant. Prepare before hand with questions because they expect you to lead the discussion. I found it super helpful so take advantage of that!
On another note don't hang your head if you got bad news today. Just getting to this position at all is a testament to how hard we have all worked and will continue to work and one minor speed bump doesn't change that. Best of luck to everyone!
curious if anyone that was A/R interviewed on/after 10/30?
Just read through the posts only 2 people on here reported being accepted.
I feel this so much right now. Huge blow and anxiety causing since it’s been my only interview so far. But we will make it through if we continue to push forward.
Does anybody have a grasp on how many people are going to end up in the SUC pool? SDN makes it seem like it's most people.. which doesn't make it much of a "short list"
The SUC pool isn't a finite list of people. It is constantly changing as people are added post-interview, rejected, or accepted. Keep in mind you could remain in the pool until the very end when you get put on the alternate list. You might be confusing SUC with the alternate list?
No, I understand how the SUC population operates.. I was just trying to suss out my "new odds" after being placed in the SUC pool of people, and if anybody had an understanding of how many people are in this pool in March. But it sounds like it is too dynamic to evaluate.. statistically.
From my experience, about 50-70% of the class receives a SUC. It varies how many SUCs you receive. I think in my first cycle I had three SUCs which resulted in a 40ish waitlist #/rejection. In my last cycle, I had one/two SUCs and was top 3 on the waitlist.
I know the wait is a killer. Just remind yourself a SUC could mean your Excom member was busy and couldn’t attend the meeting or your file wasn’t discussed or they want to see more applicants.

In history somewhere, I’ve heard a person receive 6 SUCs or some ridiculous # and got accepted at the end.
Most acceptances are given out Jan-March (especially mid-late March)

Have many OOR gotten in yet?
I had 5 SUCs before being accepted a long, long time ago. You can be accepted, rejected, SUC’d at any meeting. You never know what may or may not happen. Check prior threads for information about prior years information.
I documented my experience on mdapplicants.

UW has the strangest acceptance/rejection standards. I'm just an observer but have been watching since 2014-2015 and I don't understand their rejection of qualified, in-state applicants.
Hang in there.
Welcome to the joys of 5 states sharing a single medical school. Luckily the new school helps Washington residents out, but I suspect that Washington is still a net exporter of applicants.
My friend got accepted as OOR, interviewed early November. Average stats, but experiences matched the school mission really well.
Wow, thank you so much for that insightful response! I feel a bit better now. I think I speak for everybody when I say thank you for revisiting this post even after acceptance to dole out helpful advice!
No, not welcome. I've already watched IS people I know apply for years now. Besides the fact that UW has to be for WWAMI, they just turn down a lot of really qualified people who get accepted OOS.
Any Wyoming II's yet? I was supposed to hear something back 2 weeks ago. I know they schedule interviews a few weeks out, and Wyoming's interviews are scheduled for February, so maybe that's why I haven't heard anything? I've been accepted to two other schools already, so I just find it odd I haven't heard anything from my region's school...
I was complete 9/7
I’d just like to say many people in my class are reapplicants. Also, reapplication doesn’t mean you aren’t up to par compared to those that get in on their first try. There’s a person in my class that is a third time applicant and top of the class. Persistence is key! Hang in there!
Anyone else still hurting from post interview rejection.. was feeling optimistic too
trying to stay positive.
Thanks - like I said, I'm just an observer not an applicant. I've been reading since @BABSstudent was an M1.
I'm interviewing tomorrow! Sorry to hear about the rejections.
anybody from Alaska get a II yet?
Everyone who got the “still under consideration” get the same email?
Mine said they reviewed my application and interview results but a decision hasn’t been made.
I was rejected post interview last year, and yes, I am STILL hurting from that... How can rejection NOT hurt or feel personal? I would try to just keep your head up, and know that this particular set of circumstances in this particular moment in time that led to that decision doesn't define you. You WILL have the opportunity to become a successful physician if you keep working at it. Doesn't matter when. That's what I keep telling myself, anyway..
silence for me.
WA Trust II today. Residency confirmed/complete 10/15
Which begs the question how the long-standing admissions protocols frequently don’t translate into the most qualified individuals gaining an acceptance, not just once but multiple times. As someone who was rejected post interview last cycle despite feeling extremely confident I understand a lot of the confusion with the process. I applied TRUST and few of the applicants on interview day seemed to fit the mission of that program. My feedback session was cryptic and the few notes written by members of the panel stated things I know I never said and were used to justify subjective claims antithetical to who I am. UWs feedback was exactly contradictory to the other Washington program’s (which I fully agreed with and understood) I was waitlisted at. If this is a recurring theme perhaps the program needs to outsource some help. Like the CASPer. . . Oh wait, they are.
