    I asked, I'm on on it, but I wanted to know...and they told me they put about 20 people on there and that usually a few people drop out. So don't lose hope!!

    When did you interview? I still havent heard anything back =(

    me too! sucks don't it?

    I thought there would be more people on the list. I was reading the thread about the NYU waitlist, they mentioned around 200 people on that list!! Now thats a list with very little chance of getting off.

    But 20 doesn't seem so bad.

    I interviewed on March 12.

    Y'know, I would accept a spot on next years class if they have that option (that is, class of 2012) :D .

    Not likely though.

    I would accept a spot on next year's class, or the year after that.

    As long as they guarantee it, that would be AWESOME. In my case, actually, WAY better than an acceptance this year would be an acceptance for next minus the application process.

    A break from school would be nice.

    Did you hear by mail? I havent checked my mail since friday, and AADSAS didn't update for me. ....sounds like bad news, ey?

    I absolutely agree about the break from school. It changed on aadsas. Not necessarily bad news; could be an acceptance thats arriving in mail for you :). (God willing).

    So, anyone out there holding a BU offer of admission thats not planning on using it?
    If so, I bet people posting in this thread would be dying to know...(myself included) ;)

    How was everyone notified that they were on the waitlist? Email / aadsas / snail mail? I haven't received anything of any kind...and my aadsas status still says invited for interview even though I interviewed last month.

    anyone hear anything? is it really true that their waitlist is pretty small? seems like a lot of sdn'ers are on there for it to only have 20-30 people on it.

    I called when I found out I was on it, and it seems to be growing. The first time I called, they said it was about 24, and now it's up to 30.

    I dont remember if she said it would keep growing or not

    I was also told about 30 ppl on the waitlist. It shouldn't get any larger than this since they probably stopped interviewing ppl. I wonder when they are going to call turn to the waitlist?

    gl to all my fellow waitlistees!

    so do you think that means that no one has dropped their position....or that there are positions, but have not decided on who to give them too??? :luck:

    well guys I hope we will see some movement soon since some dental schools are requiring additional deposits for their spots and people should be deciding on where they want to go. just keep on praying:thumbup:

    When you say some d-schools are you specifically referring to Boston or just generalizing?

    I was also told no movement from the waitlist. I find that kinda surprising, I would have thought that someone would have given up their spot...
    oh well :)

    just generalizing here. Many people who have been accepted are securing their spot while they are on a waitlist at another dental school of their choice. Once they make the move we could see movement or not.

    Does anyone else think that this entire waitlist thing is complete Bull? I mean they sent us an email mid may and then nothing for two weeks? What is going on at that school? I mean are they gonna let us know mid July and then when we arrive give us a Cardbord Box to sleep under the BU Bridge? There is so much stuff that needs to be organized, they should at least tell us exactly how many people are on the waitlist and they shoudl rank it somehow.
