2023-2024 Waitlist Support Thread

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.
Im not even really worried that there won’t be movement (I’m only WLd at DO schools), I know there will be but I don’t wanna wait till mid to end of June for major movement. I would love vacation this summer before I become a slave to medicine lol but I can’t bc I may have to get up and move across the country with a weeks notice

Omg same. I was planning to travel but I have no idea what’s going to happen and if I don’t get in I’ll need to be working on applications and finding a new job

These next 3 weeks are going to drive me crazy... and if I get accepted I will have to move ASAP :/ hoping for the best. Doesn't help that I keep looking at accepted groupchats... I hope the number stops growing >.<

how has WL movement been at UTMB?

i know of at least 6-7 offers just on sdn these past 10 days : / the rest of the movement has been quite slow for tmdsas tbh so it’s even more disheartening. and what a coincidence! thanks again dude and same from me to you

Does anyone else feel like their heart is getting stabbed each time someone gets off the waitlist at the school they’re waiting to hear from?

yep. my top choice school also sent a survey asking WL folks to indicate whether the school was their top choice, and it’s confusing to me to see people get in and say they did NOT indicate it was their top choice. not saying they don’t deserve an A, but it just feels weird when the school KNOWS there are people who would commit in a heartbeat and they’re getting passed over

Sometimes the actions of these admissions committees make no sense

I know WL movement has been somewhat slow due to FAFSA delays/ PTE extension but this process has been so frustrating. I just want to know if I get off the WL or not 😫

I'd err on the side of caution unless you truly have substantial updates, otherwise you might risk annoying them with fluff. Hope one (or more) of the schools works out for you!

don’t!! You’ve already expressed your interest!

- this is from someone that has sent multiple emails about updates/intent!

it's so hard waiting for the results of my only MD interview, which happened late match. I don't even know if there are going to be spots left in the class by the time they get to my interview week. and I won't be hearing back for another month. :(

Yes. And I think the part that folks don’t talk about is that sometimes there are folks that you’ve been chatting and commiserating with in a school specific thread, and then in DMs, and then suddenly they’re in, and you’re happy for them, but you’re also a bit lonelier. One less person who understands what you are going through.

This has happened to me a couple of times over the past few weeks. I’m just trying to take it a day at a time now.

I’ve already accepted that I’ll need a miracle to get in this cycle. I really hope for one but each day just feels more excruciatingly painful as I drudge onwards with reapp prep.

Is the May 15th date relevant to DO schools?
I think it’s for TMDSAS medical schools. After this date, they can’t make acceptance offers to Texas resident applicants who already have an acceptance at another TMDSAS school.
