Did you call to see if they'd tell you where you are on the waitlists? Without more infomation than an MCAT score, we can't judge where you ought to be.

Once you know that, you can look at the school-specific threads from last year and get a realistic idea of the amount of waitlist movement that is typical of each school.

None of my top three are ranked- at least if they are they don't give it out. I have definitely looked at the old threads and all three have significant movement compared to other schools...I guess I'm just looking to see if anyone has any thoughts about the situation :oops: Thanks!

J DUB, a frequent SDN poster, tends to say "Waitlist times three, an acceptance you'll see" (or something like that). Personally, I think hard data has a better chance of being reassuring along those lines.

Yeah I find that hard data about wait lists is kinda hard to come by. Either way, I find that adage reassuring - even if it has no factual basis what so ever. :p Maybe I'll make my own :rolleyes:...a wait list times four, acceptance for sure!

Hey catalystik - did you see I made it off the WL at my #1 ?? WL x 4 = acceptance 4 sure!
Congratulations on your acceptance. Awesome! Come back and tell us about it.
