Damn that sucks, usually a rejection at any stage at wayne during the cycle is usually because someone found you not compatible/competitive enough. They are pretty rare but did something happen during the interview?
The interviews went fine, as far as I know. I guess it just wasn't meant to be :rolleyes:. Wish the rest of you luck tho!

Disclaimer: First SDN Post, not sure what I'm doing. I was accepted to Wayne State and had a couple of questions as far as housing/second look day etc. Is this the right place to be posting? Thanks for you help, and best of luck to everyone!
I havent personally been accepted yet so I can't answer those questions, but this is indeed the right place to be posting those questions

So I did my interview a couple weeks ago and nothing on my portal has changed. Is that normal? Also, how long does Wayne generally take to get back to you?

Has anyone from 12/20 called the admissions office to ask why they still haven't heard? The fact that theres been silence for that long scares me.

They basically said to keep waiting and checking our portals. No news is good news and we’re still under consideration until we receive a rejection. Admissions meets regularly until classes start to make decisions.

is the portal supposed to change after your interview?
I’m not sure. that’s what it seemed like from my conversation because I was asked what my status was now but mine hasn’t changed.

But it could also just be that the decision might show up on the portal before we get the email.

With April 30 being deadline for people to choose only 1 med school from their multiple acceptances, I'd imagine 90% of the movement is going to be in May.
from what I’ve seen on previous sdn threads as well, a lot of the movement happened late May/early June/late June I’m assuming as they sort through everything that get shuffled around on April 30th, but that’s also just speculation& based off sdn which is a small portion of applicants

If we haven't heard back from 1/06 yet, do we think we are all going to get waitlisted/rejected or are they still reviewing?

I know someone has already called a few weeks ago, but do you guys think calling for an update is a good idea?
it's honestly really confusing because i know sdn is a small sample size but it seems like hardly anyone has heard back in weeks

Interviewed 12/9 and waitlisted sometime in January. Just submitted a LOI. Previously was debating which school to submit an LOI to - and if this school really was my #1. Woke up at 4am Arizona Time and felt it in my heart that it was. Writing the letter came so naturally because of how much I sincerely love this school and how at home I felt during interview day. Wish me luck, y'all!

And good luck to us ALL!

Just FYI, for those who were asking earlier, I received a Second Look Day invitation in the mail today. April 6th beginning at 8 AM.
Yo wayne state pull me off the waitlist so I can go to second look? thanks!

Considering that they interviewed around 1500 applicants last year, and accepted 572, I don't think it's very accurate.

If I remember correctly, those numbers are pretty accurate for whatever year those numbers got released cause they're statistics that are reported to USNEWS from the schools and also takes into account people who withdraw. That acceptance rate is post-waitlist too, not just right after interviews.

A lot of people deny their interview invites (don't go to interviews) and a lot of people withdraw while on the waitlist. Wayne is also a big class that essentially accepts 2x the number of spots. If I were to guess, it's like 50% get accepted after interview and 50% of waitlist people get accepted, so that makes it hover at 70-75%.

What you say makes a lot of sense. I kinda figured it could be something like that. I just don't know and I'm also grabbing at straws trying to figure out if I'm going to be in medical school next fall or reapplying.

With 5 waitlists, I feel like you will be okay :)

They said on 2/14 we should hear back second week of March (next week) so maybe they'll dump a bunch of decisions then
Isn't Spring Break for WSU the second week of March? Since office will be closed, how can they give us the results?
