So sad about second look :(

I am still planning on coming to town as I was going to see a friend anyways. If anyone else is going to be in town Friday and wants to grab a meal or something, please DM me! Looking forward to meeting you all via Facebook and on campus in July.
DM me? I can't DM you

From the Rs this week, it looks like they were all pre-Il Rs. I have yet to hear anyone receiving anything post-II for the Feb interviews. Keeping my fingers crossed for next Wednesday...
There are non-SDN users/ people who only use Reddit. I know of a person from reddit

oh I see! thanks for pointing that out. I'm not certain whether they are keeping to that, just because that same timeline says their interview season would end in feb which didn't end up happening. Hopefully somebody else has some insight on that.
Plus with the Coronavirus issue things certainly aren't going to plan

I was part of the first interview group on August 15th. Still waiting to hear back. No news is good news right?

It's hard because the class size is so small! If it were any other school, I would feel safe that at least one person accepted from each batch would be posting on here. Trying to stay optimistic that there are still slots for those later interviews available (2/26 without a word)! But also pessimistic enough to think people might have gotten in that just don't post on SDN.

If you'd like my honest opinion here is where I think things are at. As of March 15th, the school was required to give out 48 acceptances at minimum (the size of their first-year class). This means if every single one of these people accepts the seat, then they have no more seats. This is unlikely to happen, although it is questionable exactly how many people will drop their acceptance. If admitted students do plan to drop their acceptance, they will likely do it close to April 15th or April 30th (important days bc AMCAS traffic rules). It is unlikely that Kaiser would be willing to have more than 48 accepted students at a given time bc they have no analytics from previous years about what their retention could be like and its a huge mess when more accepted students want to attend then you can fit in your class. So what this means is that we are likely going to be placed on a formal waitlist at some point, rejected, or the pool of post II applicants are being seen as a sort of informal waitlist and will be pulled from as spots open.

I'm curious how many will be accepted in total! Bored while quarantining so I speculated below, read on if interested (but I might be completely off-base).
Most schools seem to accept approximately twice the number of students and assume yield of 50% (+/- 5%). KP seems like a wildcard: on one hand, it's new and not yet established/prestigious, but on the other hand the location, free tuition, and KP network are big positives. They certainly can't over-enroll while still seeking full accreditation so I can't imagine them accepting over 48 students at any given time, more likely to create a large alternate list and pull from there. However, it seems every single one of the accepted students have received either need or merit based scholarships which bring total cost of attendance to $0 all four years - I'd imagine students pulled from the alternate list would receive these as well.
Taken together, this is my best estimate:
Maybe they have accepted ~10 students who have already withdrew and an additional 48 for a full class to meet the 3/15 AMCAS requirement. Of these 48, perhaps 20 more will eventually withdraw and matriculate elsewhere as financial aid info is released from other schools and waitlist movement begins.
That would mean a total 78 acceptances for 48 spots (yield of ~60%, slightly higher than most schools) and an additional ~20 students from this point on will be taken from the alternate list.
But who knows!

tried to call the office to ask whether the 3/20 decision deadline has been extended, nobody picked up, which is 100% expected since they probably can't work in the office anymore. If anybody wants to reach out to ask something, email is probably your best shot.

Congrats!!! Did you get a call or email first?
Did anyone get a response through email about the decision deadline extending or not?
Email, no call as of yet.

Edit: Dean just called.
I'm curious if they've sent all their last acceptance emails out then, just running down the call list.

At this point I'll gratefully take a WL. Still the days not over yet and the prospect of not having to worry about all that debt while I try to focus on training is a golden one. Not to mention the case based team learning, which I personally love.

Haha I definitely asked a lot of questions about the open kitchen on interview day. I love the idea of getting the students together for potlucks. Love sharing a good meal and conversation
