Waitlisted today post II.
Does anyone know what waitlist movement is like? I’m nervous about it because they said we won’t hear back till May
Mmmm according to MSAR there are typically around 300 people on the waitlist per cycle, with about 30 of those eventually getting offers. So not terrible odds, but not the best either.

The hold email says that they will review apps again by late January. Are there people still on hold who haven't heard anything since the email?
Me too, I checked their website today because I was also wondering when we'd hopefully hear back and it says that interviews typically go through the end of March, so I'm hopeful still! I'm wondering if we're people who'd potentially fill in for II slots that other people cancel? Or if they haven't scheduled all their interviews through the end of March and we could potentially fill those? Hopefully the latter.

Lol same they hit me with that R. However I can’t say I’m surprised.

I had a good source confirm pre-II hold is a death sentence for most apps at UCSD.

Not all though. I was put on hold and later accepted.

I've heard that pre-II holds are less dire if you're local to San Diego, in which case it can be more of an interview standby list. In other words, they can hold people whom they would most likely want to interview but are holding as a means to fill interview spots on short notice if there are cancellations.

Anyone know when financial aid information will come out? And when the 2020-2021 academic calendar will be published?

For the MSTP applicants in this thread, if any of us get a call this Saturday (looking at previous years' SDN threads, they call on Saturdays), can you ask how/when the rest of us will be notified we're on the waitlist and report back? I'm assuming they don't call you to tell you that you're on the waitlist because that would be...cruel.

Is it for regular MD or MSTP? For regular MD, mine did not have any dinner the night prior. You could have received an email to sign up for a free-clinic tour, if there is one arranged for your day.

MSTP is done interviewing. They only have two sessions in January.

PRIME. In my initial invitation email they mentioned there would be a mixer prior to the interview date. But I haven't received any information about one since so unsure if it's still happening or not

Oh I am sorry I do not know about PRIME. I feel like you can either call the admission office or email them and ask. They are very nice people.

Have any other admitted students attempted to use the AMCAS "plan to enroll" tool? My UCSD acceptance doesn't show up on my list of options. Is this just me or are the UCSD acceptances not reflected on the AMCAS portal?

Any recent interviewees remember when we'd hear back? I thought I remember hearing 2/27 or 2/28?
