    I know at least one person who got in but withdrew. Don’t worry guys. Remember how many people from last years class were off the waitlist

    During my interview, we were told that 30-40% of the class (class of 2022) came from the waitlist

    Earlier on this thread (the day decisions came out) someone mentioned they got rejected. Perhaps those that got rejected aren’t on SDN

    I wonder if they only accepted 106 people last year too or if that’s a new policy

    Does most of the class go to second look? I have a vacation coming up with my family around that weekend and I'm wondering if it's worth trying to make it

    Update regarding the class of 2023 facebook page; The class council decided not to make one till final decisions are out in April(?). The idea is to limit the random's that join the fb, matriculate elsewhere but continue to stay in the fb page. There are a few in ours from last year. If you have any specific questions you can always ask any of the admission ambassadors in the interview packet.

    I don't know about most of the class but a lot of people attended second look last year. If you're still deciding between schools I always recommend attending the second look for those schools. I would have matriculated elsewhere had I not gone. If you're intent on matriculating then you should honestly just go on vacation with your family. Most of the first year bonding happens during the camping trip in orientation anyway.

    Any way for us to check online to see if all our financial aid documentation has been received, including CSS profile and FAFSA?

    I just called and the financial aid office told me that if you've uploaded your documents via their file system, they've definitely been received. She said they will email us with confirmation only once a human has physically downloaded the documents.

    but sometimes, you can find yourself part of the unlucky class that gets wholly ****ed over by the new grading system, with a certain clerkship director telling his residents to grade harsher.....

    but they'll probably change it back once they get to the end of the year and find out that my class bombed everything

    Are you an upperclassman? Are you referring to this? Because that's wildly different from what you are posting...I haven't heard an m2/3/4/5 make the claims you are. Screen Shot 2019-03-18 at 8.32.59 PM.png
