I agree! I definitely think (incoming) M1s get the long end of the stick, especially as most lectures can be streamed (but I'm not sure about orientation, CPR certs, etc.; maybe those could be postponed?). I really feel for M3s especially who've had their clerkships cut short or those on rotations.
i would be heart broken if we couldn't do orientation or the white coat ceremony -- we will see how this all pans out

as of right now, the dean of the medical school has insisted that the old M1 class will be starting M2 on April 13th and the old M2 class will be starting M3 april 1st. If we're starting on time, I'm pretty sure the new M1s will too :)

I on the other hand am waiting for one acceptance and I'm on the waitlist. Gonna hit them up with a letter of intent by the end of the month cuz this is where I want to be.
Same! They were my only interview. Plus Wayne is my dream school - perfect values alignment - and Detroit has everything my family needs. Being on the waitlist means I’m a half step closer to making this reality.

No I havent. I was wondering when they tend to send these out
They sent out an email earlier in the month before everything shifted online that most financial aid packages would be out by the end of March. However, this was probably affected by shifting everything online. So things are kind of up in the air rn

Makes sense. Just gotta keep waiting haha one more week isnt going to kill me.

Was also wondering if anyone can comment on clinical opportunities beginning from M1. Are we able to be apart of the healthcare team at DMC during M1 or is that just limited to when we start rotations?

From what I’ve heard/seen, I don’t think any M1 students at any medical school in the US are part of a healthcare team yet. That would be M3 for most, and M2 at the earliest for some.

Current M1 here:

Soooooooooo many clinical opportunities. There are like 20 student-run free clinics that WSU sponsors and even as an M1 you can volunteer your time there and act as the primary care physician for the homeless and underserved populations in Detroit. I've done it a bunch and tbh it is great practice and application of the skills you learn in the clinical skills course during your first year. You also get basic life support certified during orientation. With this certification, you can volunteer at any of the hospitals on WSU campus in the ER and do CPR on a coding patient. I was only 2 weeks into my medical school career when I volunteered with the receiving hospital and in the 4 hours I was there I performed CPR on several patients. This isn't your mommy's medical school, Detroit is a major city with all kinds of health issues going on and WSUSOM is not afraid to send out its M1s into the fray.

M1s run/volunteer in a lot of the student run clinics (we have around 15 student run clinics). We are directly involved with patient care and do/learn many things you would be doing in rotations (note writing, presenting to attending, medication reconciliation).

Also, many interest groups do morning rounds shadowing, and while they aren't going to be treating you as the m3 on the team, you will learn and see A LOT at the DMC. Many students shadow doctors as well. I have a few friends who shadow surgeons and will scrub in to watch.

I just checked the EDP page and apparently they’re changing the GPA/MCAT requirement from 3.65/65th Percentile MCAT to 3.7/70th Percentile for this coming year.

Which is really upsetting to me, because I’m literally one point below the required score now, and I really wanted to apply Early Decision. I am not even sure now how I can retake the MCAT before the application opens up either given so many of the testing sites near me are closed because of the pandemic.

This stinks...

Damn dude, must be loaded. I don't remember the last time I had toliet paper.

This is why med school admissions is unfair, some people just start their lives with more toliet paper and sanitizer than the rest of us.

Same! And just to clarify to others reading this; the email does contain content, it's just the actual part where the access ID and temporary password are that appears blank.
Can I ask what the content of those emails related to? I am not asking the particulars, I just want to figure out if I should have received a similar correspondence because I have not received any communication other than Admin is trying to keep up and will be contactable from remote working places.

Subject line: Wayne State University School of Medicine Student ID and Access
Content: I'm pretty sure the email is for anyone who has been accepted. Basically they are sending our access ID and temporary password in order to be able to login to the WSU Academica portal. Here we will be able to view communications and complete additional financial aid requirements.

I also received the email that my package is uploaded to the portal. I can't find the actual package though when I log in
It's not in the portal, it's in Academica! You have to log in using your AccessID I think it's called (letter,letter,####, for example, ab1234) that they email out to you. I got a message today saying that if you have not received that, they will send it out next week.
