So to keep things in perspective for current waitlisters, when does orientation start? Is it July 9th?

Edit: The website says last year's was July 25th.. shall we assume it's the same this year?
I believe it’s July 15th. There’s plenty of people who have been accepted in the last two weeks. They’ll probably switch to phone calls soon.

It was by email!
These last two weeks crazy movement happens. I think most of us on the waitlist have done our part and been patient. I sent a letter of intent, just gotta wait out and see. I'm hoping being a Detroit native and having strong ties to the community helps with the process.

Does anyone have good laptop recommendations for med school? I have had the same laptop for 4 years and need to upgrade.

Hi guys, waitlistee here. Do we have any estimates on how many more people they are going to accept from the waitlist at this point? Or if there have been any acceptances since the CTE deadline?

no idea. it all depends on those who ain't commit and also waitlist movements at other schools. Things still feel way up in the air. last friday some acceptance went out and some rejected those acceptances.

I purchased a Microsoft Surface Laptop last year and love it. It's basically a Mac with Windows OS. Definitely not a gaming laptop, though.

The tracker is still at 433 but has not been updated with the acceptance offers given in June. I think I've seen somewhere on the Internet that in years past the tracker generally gets to 550ish. So probably not many more :dead:

Remember CTE deadline just passed and finaid just came out. So things are moving right now, and other school's waitlist are moving as well. So we just have to wait and see. if we've interviewed, i'd say we're still in the game.

Took a peek at last years thread and didn't see anyone post acceptances by this time. Granted maybe at this point anyone getting an acceptance is going to be too busy to be posting on here. Are we all still in the dark about what's going on or does anybody have new info?

I really want to call Wayne but I'm also afraid of the answer they might give to me. At this point, a rejection letter would be nice, at least I would know there is no more hope.

With the new rules this year, the game is much trickier. and wayne has always been notorious for notifying folks real late. i'm gonna stay patient, and keep praying for the best. also, keep in mind this is voluntary. we still have many blessings to count. it's a tremendous blessing to have gotten this far in the admissions game. just keep ur head down and move forward.

Which day are people going to the Transition to M1 resource fair, if at all? Are both days the same or is one day more comprehensive than the other?

I was told by the admissions office that they are setting up appointments on a first come first serve for re-applicants from the waitlist to review there application for weaknesses/strengths. Hope this helps anyone looking for an edge this coming cycle!

The admissions website says there has only been 433 acceptances sent out, and the averages over the last five years has been 518 according to their website, so yeah I'd say there may still be massive waitlist movement in the next week.

I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you all, I would be honored to have any and all of you be my classmates on July 15th

That tracker is very out of date so probably modest waitlist movement at best if it's anything like years in the past.

CTE and Finaid backed things up this year. Now that we're past that, there will be some more movement God Willing, I have no doubt. Wayne calls people up the first day of classes lol, and has gone to the second day of classes.

When I ran into one of the admins from the school mid june, they told me about 30 more spots to dish out, but then the game would change after CTE and finaid deadline, etc. Keep the prayings coming for each other. We close!

First time poster and long time lurker. I’ve been praying (and will continue praying) for all of y’all. Hoping good news comes for all of us next week!

I am going to make a parachute plan in case I get accepted on Friday but I almost don't want to do it out of fear of jinxing it, lol

give me some of your confidence and hope, I ran out a long time ago
I'm only saying this cause I'm from the area and know tons of folks who got last minute acceptances. keep in mind Wayne aint a numbers game either. as long as you fall in the range and they love your story, you stand a good shot.

If anyone gets in at this point with one week left it will be by phone call.
Thank you for sharing.

Do you think there are still some acceptances to go out? Compared to years past I would think so, but this year is a bit odd.

If there are any spots left, I’m thinking probably less than 10 total. Just don’t see a school handing out 30 spots with one week to plan, that would be chaos.

I was just thinking about how crazy this cycle was, particularly with them releasing financial aid mere DAYS before the CTE, and it's funny to me if NOW they'd be "You know, let's not do anything that will create chaos". LOL

I was accepted before the CTE deadline at the end of June but did not get my financial aid until just last week o_O

So still expecting some movement to happen. Congrats on your acceptance!
I get that your username is in reference to "Go Green, Go white!: Can't Read, Cant write!" but i'm confused if you are a UofM student who can read can write (because you didn't go to MSU) or if you're an MSU student who can read can write (despite going to MSU). Sorry that this is kinda off topic from the whole waitlist thing, but I've seen you on this thread a couple times and reading your name always makes me wonder.

It's a running joke from my family. nothing to do with schools. When my cousin was applying to colleges recommended him to go to a local school in Ohio, Kent State. In his high school, people would say Can't read can't write Kent State, to which his mom responded Why in her native tongue, Can Read Can Write lol

I actually heard that today was the last day to receive an acceptance. Admissions doesn't want to push it any closer to orientation. Maybe 1-2 spots might become available if people don't show to orientation but its highly unlikely.
