Have any accepted students received financial aid? I know delays in FAFSA processing have resulted in no WL movement but looking at the other school’s threads, a lot of accepted applicants have received FA already.

Have accepted students heard back any news from the school about next steps? Just wanted to make sure it wasn't just me who hasn't received any emails

I received my aid on April 29th after emailing the FA office.

Regular MD, didn't apply to LEAD or Purch. I was interviewed January 23 and waitlisted March 8.

And yes, I already committed. This is my first acceptance :)

Has anyone recently spoken with UMass admissions about waitlist movement? I've been seeing movement start at other schools.

I emailed them and all I got was “we will announce all WL positions by the start of classes in August. Majority will come out by mid-July” super vague

Mid-July is so late - wow. I was really hoping for a large wave of movement this week

Mid July??? I need to commit to my only A by July 1st. That is soooo late, some schools start at the end of July:cryi:
 
Soo I'm not sure whether I'm missing something here, but they said "majority will come out by mid-July". This means that anytime between now and mid-July, most of the WL-->A decisions will be sent out, not that majority will come out during mid-July. Taking into consideration the delays caused by FAFSA, the big WL-->A wave may end up happening during end of May/even sometime in June. Basically, the statement they provided is the same one they would give for any app cycle - it's a typical "non-answer".

Just trying to keep some positivity here ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Good point. It’s just like how for post-II decisions, they said everyone will hear BY end of April. And some people found out in March and early April, so hopefully people will hear before mid-July.

I interviewed in late January and was waitlisted in late March for the regular MD track
Congrats on the A!! Will you be accepting? Also a bit confused -- are you in-state for MA or VA? Just curious based on your comment history :)
 
Withdrew from WL for another school. Good luck to you all!

Does anyone have any updates? Has anyone reached out to the adcom about the status of waitlist movement? Thanks so much

I emailed them because I have to commit to enroll to another program by July 1st and they just said good luck in the “coming weeks” as movement happens on the waitlist.

Wait...so were they passive-aggressively saying "good for you on that A, that doesn't change anything" or are they saying that WL movement is most likely picking up this month? Lol these cryptic responses from the admissions teams are sending me

Every person I’ve managed to contact has just said movement will happen in the future, genuinely baffled lmao

I'm trying to work out a complicated commute-- Do any current students or just better-informed applicants have any idea what attendance is like? How many days/classes are required in person?
 
Do you think the lack of WL movement is indicative of the class already being full ? I know for one of my NY state schools they sent email out telling everyone that the class was overfilled so WL movement was extremely unlikely. So I’m just generalizing but who knows :(

which school is this?
 
There has probably been some unreported waitlist movement at least. Facebook group has moved from 344 to 357 in the last 2-3 weeks. It's hard to believe that a program that typically has 70 waitlist spots accepted would have such a decrease this year so I'm still keeping my hopes up
 
Has anyone recently emailed Admissions to get an idea what's going on? If so, what was their response?
 
Welp another week of silence. I only have one more week left until I have to commit elsewhere halfway across the country :(
