Based on the last two weeks, I guess they don't like sending out acceptances on Fridays lol

To next week we go everybody I wanted to hear peoples thoughts/opinions on WL movement this year. Do we think because of FAFSA delays, the whole campus assignment blunder and MCG accepting 40 more students this year will change WL movement compared to previous years and how so?

Probably a mixture of FAFSA delays and it depends on school start dates. Those with earlier dates are gonna move earlier/now

I was just thinking about that.. Based on what people have been reporting here, with only Savannah acceptances since last Friday (and considering that Savannah only has 40 seats compared to the 300 from Athens and Augusta combined) statistically we are bound to see more movement right?!

I would say theres still going to be a bit of waitlist movement (my best guess would be at least a dozen more As before the orientation in July). Just wanted to offer some clarity based on the numbers provided during my interview: 206 seats in Augusta, 60 seats in Athens, 40 seats in Savannah, and Im pretty sure theres 306 seats total.

Do we know how many people are currently assigned to each campus?

So I just looked through the GroupMes and ran some quick counts:

MCG total: 300 (284 new students, 16 upper class students)
MCG Athens: 77 (62 new students, 15 upper class students)
MCG Savannah: 34 (25 new students, 9 upper class students)

***MCG Augusta does not have a dedicated GroupMe and a lot of people are in multiple groups so its hard to say how many students are in the Augusta group without double-counting.
But through the difference it looks like there are 197 new students in the Augusta group.

It is also to be noted that not everyone who is an upper class student has identified themselves (via an M1/M2 next to their name) so its difficult to say with certainty how accurate these numbers are.

Thanks for info medhealthy!! Honestly at this point its all speculation. We dont know how many of the groupme exactly are current students. We dont know how many are going elsewhere and are still in the chat. We dont know how many got accepted but arent in the groupme. Lots of variables.

All we can do is wait.

Yes forreal lol
 
Does anyone know what's going to happen for those in the future that pick the Athens campus? Would we be attending school along with uga med students? Using their new building?

has anyone checked with the admissions office regarding the waitlist movement? In the past, the first two weeks seemed to have a lot more movement but I don't know if it is the same for this year due to the FAFSA delay and PTE extension unless there is WL movement that is not being reported on SDN.

I called them on Monday and they said that they are still in the process of accepting people off the waitlist, but said it was uncertain when/how often as only the admission committee itself knows. It is weird that we haven't heard anything yet this week tho

Got the A today at 1:17pm, EST via e-mail. No campus assignment yet. Completely unreal, but thankful. I will be pulling for all of you on the WL still. I know how painful it is, so if you guys need any sort of updates I'll still be checking SDN on the reg.

Also are you URM or ORM?
 
For those accepted, did MCG extend their PTE deadline? I know a lot of schools did
No, they never gave an extension. No financial aid letters yet either. I met with the financial aid counselor yesterday and they still don't know when that might be coming 簪\_()_/簪

Has anyone been accepted with a less than stellar Casper score or know how much it matters? I wonder if it has been holding me back.
 
Has everyone whos gotten in from the WL so far been assigned the Savannah campus?
 
Did anyone who got the email about the early assurance program MS-MD offer while being on the waitlist accept the offer? or is planning to accept it?

I spoke to them the other day just to let people know. They said they are still pulling off the waitlist on a rolling basis. Dont know how many or when exactly people will hear back.
