Trying to figure out whether this a good thing or a bad thing. Good because it probably gives me a better chance. Bad because it will take them LONGER to decide?
My guess would be it's still separated demographically. If they they're looking to replace a spot for a candidate with X experiences and Y background they may have it piled that way. However, this is just my stab in the dark guess.

*sigh* (mini rant): Man, I'm really getting tired of this waiting. I'm a clinical research coordinator and while we're currently training a back-up (the back-up doesn't know that I may actually leave), I really just want this set in stone. Like yes, I'm leaving so here's ALL the training you need to do. Instead of a little bit here and there. It's already gonna be embarrassing for me to not get in and have my manager & co-coordinator know. Not to mention, that I need to figure out whether I'm gonna have to cut my hours for my post-bacc classes (do I start in summer or wait until fall?).

Anyway, I'm sure many of you are having similar feelings of frustration so I'll just say thank you for the space and bow out for today.
We all hear you and share in your frustrations. I only wish this was more like the college application process where you could apply early action and they would get back to you sooner.

I just started my job as a medical scribe, and I am still in the training phase until the end of the month. I feel bad because if it is june or july before I get my acceptance they will have to start all over again and train someone new, and in the meantime be short one scribe. On the other hand, if I do not get in then all these Beaumont-affiliated doctors (beaumont owns a really nice medical school that I interviewed at this past cycle but was rejected from) know I am a failure and need to reapply...that doesn't look good for asking for letters of recommendation

Don’t sweat it. It will only not look good if you weren’t doing anything to improve on your application, so scribing is certainly a good thing. Reapplying also shows your commitment and perseverance.

In my experience, doctors like to root for and see their scribes succeed. I'm sure after working with them for a while (if it even comes down to that) they'll write you a likely bomb letter.

January 28th interview here. I haven't heard a single person from our interview date get in. Do you think it's possible that our lack of a third interview has not been properly accounted for?
I was accepted off the waitlist on 05/07 after interviewing on 01/28. Best of luck! There's still a couple months left!

So it looks like the acceptances will just start trickling in as opposed to one large batch once a week?
TBH i think I like that better, I'd get super depressed when a whole bunch of people posted on here they got in and I didn't. At least now I know I could get an email any time now

Would the email go to the address registered through AMCAS or the wayne state email address?

Does anyone know where it is good to live? It seems like it's impossible to find a place to live under $1300/month. Maybe I am looking at the wrong places. Any insight would be much appreciated.

Technically the wayne email was not suppose to be set up until after acceptance so most likely your registered email. Also check your spam folder as I seem to remember earlier in this thread II emails were found there (could be mistaken though).

You guys just need to sit back and relax a bit. I went through the same process with Wayne in other cycles and forgot to just enjoy my life and the people around me. Worried constantly about having a respectable career, making money for my future, and how other people would perceive these transition years. It got me nowhere, and nobody really cared either way because they were happy with who I already was.

Now I have multiple acceptances this round to schools far better than Wayne, but am still waitlisted here. They don’t care, honestly, and there is no rhyme or reason to schools accepting you unfortunately. So stop worrying about what your employers think and how your life will look to others. And don’t place your self worth on the identity of being accepted to med school and being a doctor. It’s not all fun and games when you get accepted, so having a healthy mindset will get you the farthest.

You have to say that because you work for HR.

Got an email this morning titled Financial Aid Letter!! But when I opened it, it guaranteed M1s their letters by June 20th wayne statedddd
That’s only 51 days later than the goal date they set for themselves on second look day. But I’m sure they’re working really hard on it.

o_O Does anyone else feel as though this is related to the fact that they have a large proportion of their incoming class that they have yet to accept? And therefore cannot even make decisions about financial aid? / and conversely can we expect them to make a DECISION about WL by 6/20? :dead:

How do you know that a large portion has yet to be accepted? Wayne makes a lot of silent moves then will update the tracker randomly with 100 more people accepted.

Based on some patterns and previous years' numbers, I would guess they have some offers to hand out still. I also would have guessed they'd have released financial aid info by now though so tells you how much I know.

Same. I mentioned this a bit of a ways back, but I was able to talk to one of the admissions coordinators at the med-school expo at Umich back in march. She said they are in a bit of a rut this year because of the new AMCAS rules and they don't know how many acceptances they will have to send out this year b/c of what they can and cannot see about their applicants. Also, they are trying to shift their school to be on a semester schedule, and this has caused problems getting financial aid out to their current students let alone accepted students as the entire calendar has changed now. They're basically trying to duct tape a sinking boat at the moment. But TBH I feel bad for the current M1 students who are riding this wave b/c they're already pretty invested in this whole process, at least we haven't started it yet :_

Have any of you checked out the 2018-2019 Waitlist Support Thread? It's very active so I scroll by but they are really making it sounds like waitlist movement is pretty much over. Or is Wayne a little more forgiving as far as waitlists go? And man, I thought we were all freaking out in this thread...this one is way more positive. I get it though

I've been following it and it seems the consensus is that no one knows. Though, some adcom members think the bulk of the movement will be in June or closer to CTE deadlines in July. They are basically completely blind as to how many they have in their class right now.

Remind me, are there are any mandatory deadlines? Or is it basically still just recommendations? Cuz at least I can try to start freaking out later during mandatory dates.

More schools have CTEs in July than I had expected, which isn't in our favor since Wayne starts 7/15. But I see Wayne's CTE is 6/24 so maybe after that date, we'll really see how it's gonna be? Thanks for the info :thumbup:

Anyone know what the out of state tuition is? I couldn't find a definitive number on their website
They don’t use one standard number, but according to the financial aid website it was about $1325 per unit for OOS in 2017. Normal full time unit load is about 50, but varies. That number doesn’t include other fees so I would add another $5,000 to that. It will likely be slightly more this year. ~$70,000.

So this is probably just a result of me slipping into madness due to waiting so long, but I noticed that of the ~15 acceptances off the waitlist that have been posted here 2 have been from people who interviewed in 2018. I know that the people who interviewed really late where placed on the waitlist automatically before a decision was made but it still seems like an un-proportional amount of movement from 2019 interviewees. You think Wayne was more conservative with acceptances later in the cycle so now the most qualified people on the waitlist are those who interviewed after the new year?

I met two really cool dudes at my interview in Feb and we had striking similarities to each other (First wanted to do PT then switched over, from same city in southern ca, etc.). If you are on this thread please send me a message because I lost your contact info, thanks and hope all is well!

Don’t psych yourself out too much. There’s still a whole ‘nother month to go. On the other hand, also don’t wait around either. Hope for the best, but always always prepare for the worst

So, anyone else having difficulties with immunizations? I have everything set except for Hep B. My titer showed no immunity (I recieved the full series many years back) . I got a booster and will get another titer in a few weeks. I’m hoping this issue is resolved before classes start on July 15. What happens if this issue is not resolved by then? Will i be able to enroll?
