so im accepted but didnt get an email abt the merit scholarship application, it means im out of running right?
Unfortunately, yes. You only get the email if your acceptance/offer letter in your portal says that you've been invited to apply for the scholarship.

Does Case tell you what your place is in the wait list after traffic day? Is it ethical/professional to send a letter of intent but then also withdraw preemptively if if you feel it is too late/close to the start of school without being pulled off?

I don't think its an ethical issue. If you have other acceptances you need for abide by their CTE deadline anyway, which would dictate how close you can realistically get to the start of school. And they must understand that people need to start finalizing plans and moving on at some point.

Is there a secret to getting a hold of the admissions office? Tried calling 2-3 times a week for the last 3 weeks.

The magic of an email. Same day correspondence for me

This is really sad. These second looks felt pretty crucial in my decision making...I’m not really sure how an online experience can replicate it. I mean I definitely get it but this news is trash lol
We didn’t want to cancel. None of us do. We’re really bummed out about this as we know how important it can be in your decision making. Obviously, the online experience isn’t ideal but we want to offer you all something.

No I know and I definitely understand. It’s just a bummer. Thank you for still offering a virtual experience. It won’t be the same, but I’m sure we all are still very thankful!

IMO, the silver lining of virtual second look is that so many more students can participate. Lots of people can't afford plane tickets to return to schools they already couldn't afford to visit for interviews. Hopefully schools can learn what works and what doesn't and then incorporate that into future events for prospective students.

I hope CWRU, and other schools, can share best practices and improve access for medical schools across the country. Thank you to all admissions staff who I imagine are working around the clock to make last minute changes and serve us in making informed decisions! We appreciate you!

I hear ya. We definitely all talk and I’m sure it will be a topic of discussion at future meetings. We already have some ideas but let me know if you guys have something in particular you’d like to see of hear. We’ll see if it’s feasible or not. Either pass it along here or email me.

Why wouldn't you...? I can't really see the purpose or benefit in withholding that information, could you clue me in?
