KEH said:I got an email today for a closer look weekend from UVM. It stated that it is inviting "all accepted applicants". I have not heard back from UVM yet, but does this mean I have been accepted...what do you think? Did anyone else get this email?
Congratulations! Who did you interview? Anybody else get a similar email? I am still waiting anxiously to hear from UVM!KEH said:I hope that means I was accepted. I'm trying not to get too excited yet though. I am in-state (which is a great advantage) and interviewed January 27th. My GPAs ok (3.61) but my MCAT wasn't the best. However, I had a lot of ECs and good leadership/work experience.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed. If I don't hear by this weekend, I am not sure I can make it! Anyone think they'd tell me if I was accepted if I called and asked?
Did you apply through the Maine Access Program? I would imagine that those 10 people also would not get waitlisted.Blackbear said:I recieved the email as well (Maine applicant).
It sounds good, but without an acceptance letter it's hard to tell.
I applied through the Maine Access Program and was interviewed in the fall. However, these adcom decisions are not made until the Feb review so those of us that interviewed early were automatically waitlisted in Dec. I imagine that the top ten candidates have been admitted with several others waitlisted until final commitments have been made in May.Originally Posted by Bigpinesman

Hey, congrats! I just pm'd you, but you answered some of my questions here. Looks like only those who got the email were accepted outright, and seems as though all of those are in-staters. So do you think you'll go? And when you called did you happen to find out if they've filled their class with 100 acceptances already? Congrats again!Blackbear said:I
The official word I got regarding the closer look email message was that "We have learned that our email has reached applicants prior to the regular mail. Your acceptance letter is in the mail." Mine came today and I am ecstatic that this application process is finally over.
Best of luck to everyone.
My guess is that the email was sent to admitted Vermonters, Mainers, and a handful of other out-of-staters.nona1 said:Hey, congrats! I just pm'd you, but you answered some of my questions here.

Yep, I'll be there in August. I don't know what the status of the class is but my suspician is that most of the in-state/Maine applicants have been admitted as well as a small number of other out-of-staters. The word on the street is that virtually everybody else gets waitlisted, so it's rumored that there will be quite a lot of movement in May. I'm really glad to have gotten my first choice and to be finished with the application process.So do you think you'll go?

Yes -- you can attend an undergrad school somewhere else and still be considered a Maine resident. But, once you're finished, you need to be living in Maine in order to apply under the auspices of the program (unless med school directly follows undergrad).bigpinesman said:I was wondering about the Maine access program, can you be in it if you went to high school in Maine, but went out of state for college?
If you are not from Maine or have already finished undergrad, then you need to have lived in Maine for one continuous year prior to application. In the past, Mainers working in Boston during their gap year have actually had to move back to Kittery/York in order to reside in Maine but still be close enough to continue working. However, given that we have no public med school and no MD program here, I am very thankful for the program's assistance.Do you have to reside in Maine for one year immediately prior to applying to the program, or will having lived there for one or more years in the past be sufficient?
that's strange that you got interviews at yale and cornell, and not at UVM. I'm interested in that school for 2006, and my stats aren't as good as yours. is it really hard for out-of-staters to get in?DianaLynne said:Heck, they told me about five weeks ago that I might still hear about an interview! Though honestly, I doubt it's gonna happen. It's sad, when I started this whole process UVM was my first choice. Guess I'm not Vermont material.
bigpinesman said:I'm really interested to hear what your hand-written note said. I don't think that is typical. At this point in the admissions cycle, they have to hold open spots for future Vermont and Maine Access applicants, as these students cannot be placed on the waitlist.
Do you have any idea how many slots they keep open, and if they are required to fill them all w/those applicants?
I can speak only for the Maine Access side of things. There are up to 10 slots available and there is no requirement that they be filled. In fact, the 2004 entering class had only 9 of these slots filled out of about 80 applicants. My understanding is that if only two people are fully qualified in a given year, then only two spots will be filled in this manner.nona1 said:Do you have any idea how many slots they keep open, and if they are required to fill them all w/those applicants?
Is there a difference between the waitlist and the "acceptable/alternate" list? I am now waitlisted (?) for both MD and MD/PhD. This being my #2 choice...if I get waitlisted/rejected for my #1 this week too I will be very sad.
Is UVM still interviewing? They seem to actually like Cali applicants. I'm from Cali but would give up my Cali MSTP spot in a heartbeat for UVM. Pleaseeee. I don't ever want to sit in traffic on the 405 again. I don't want an $800,000 townhouse. Pleaseee.
