I’m honestly surprised they haven’t sent anything out yet. I thought they would since there’s another tour day on Monday.

Have other ppls WL schools also been a bit sluggish?
Do you think the later fin aid this year is affecting things?

I got off the WL at my IS school yesterday (my first acceptance so I’m incredibly happy), but it seems like that school hasn’t had much activity either compared to previous years.

yeah idk if anyone else noticed when we got the AMCAS outreach email about the April 30th commit to enroll date but at the bottom it says:

Note: We shared the following with medical schools regarding the FAFSA delay. You are encouraged to communicate directly with the schools about your specific situation.

The medical school admissions community faces a unique challenge caused by the delay in the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opening and information being available to schools and applicants. As a result, many applicants are likely lacking comprehensive information to make a final decision on where they would like to matriculate. Clear communication between applicants and medical schools will be critical and, as always, we encourage you to use information from the Choose Your Medical School (CYMS) tool to engage with applicants throughout the process. We appreciate your ongoing cooperation within the ethical framework of the Application and Acceptance Protocols for Admissions Officers and CYMS.

Thanks!! I’m not sure. Depends on if I hear from Wayne and some other factors like COL. Wayne is my top choice but Detroit is lower COL than the location I was assigned for my IS school. Also depends on when I hear from Wayne, if it takes too long to hear from them I’ll already have everything lined up at my IS school. So we’ll see.

Maybe they're putting their resources into organizing the tour and once they've celebrated with the accepted students then they'll pay a visit to our poor applications on the waiting list pile

I think some schools have moved PTE dates and waitlist movement by a couple of weeks because of the FAFSA issue this year.

no although I'm telling myself its unlikely on a Monday and if anything we'll hear tomorrow
If you look at previous years, they usually do release decisions earlier in the week so hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday. Who knows though lol

wondering if taking this long to start their waitlist movement might mean the number of committed students are high enough that they do not need to pull out from the waitlist at this time?

For what it’s worth on MSAR it says they usually pull 300 out of 600 people off the waitlist. Would be kinda crazy if this was the case because 300 is a lot.

A lot of people who are now admitted were on the waitlist shortly before they got the A. These people are technically part of that 600 waitlist group. I do not think they will admit 300 people from now till July 1st. They usually admit ~600 and the tracker has been at 544 for several weeks now.

Tracker has been like that since at least March. There haven't been many acceptances since then so there hopefully are spaces available for us waitlisted people. They usually accept 700 people throughout the cycle based on previous years.

Hey guys- I was looking at the academic calendar and was slightly confused about the start of classes.

Is it July 1st...which is coming up pretty quickly... Or, I see another term start date of September 30th which seems extremely late.

Please let me know what I am missing here ( or that i am simply dumb and can't read a calendar)

Thank you for the link! Will be withdrawing my alternate list slot, hopefully it will help with movement somewhere down the line :)

Withdrew my A this morning (I needed extra time to evaluate aid offers). I got a stern email on Friday saying I had to pte or withdraw by May 8th at 12 PM ET or they would withdraw my offer of admission. So maybe there will be more movement towards the end of this week for you guys. Best of luck!!

Hi everyone, since Wayne State’s first day seems to be July 1, for applicants that are currently PTE at another school, have you given yourself a hard deadline on when you will move on if you don’t hear from Wayne?

Ooof the thought of this is stressing me out. I am accepted elsewhere and I think I'll have to withdraw from all my WL towards mid June ish. The thought of letting go of Wayne is making me sad 🥺

I’m in the same boat! I don’t want to let go, but am concerned about moving and finding housing in a timely manner :(
