    Thanks for the info.

    I have heard silch from UNMC. I talked to them on thursday and they said "all decisions have been made and we will send them out promptly" This guy in my studygroup got his today and he was put on the alternate list. What does it mean that I have not gotten anything yet???? Post Office!!!!!

    I guess it will depend on where you live. Since I'm some 1,200 miles away in a tiny town away from Omaha...I guess I'll be expecting something later this week then.

    Good luck. As for the alternate list goes at UNMC I do not know (I honestly didn't know UNMC even had a waitlist).

    I am on the west coast, so it will take time too, but it should not take more than 2-3 days w/in U.S. I guess Monday, Anyway hopefully they send out the acceptances later. Good luck Man?

    I heard from both schools a while back but I do have a couple friends who heard from both schools last week. I would guess most people would hear by the end of the week--just a guess. So, if you got into Creighton and UNMC where would you go? Why?

    Got in at both UNMC and Creighton. I gave up my spot at Creighton already though. Not to spoil your day, but I heard that UNMC usually goes to second tier for waitlist. That doesn't mean this year might be different. Do you have any other options?

    I got my letter from UNMC on 3/13: I'm 1st tier on the good ole waitlist. I know two M1s this year who were actually straight up rejected and were called days before school started telling them that they had to fill the last couple of spots. Odd. Anyway, the letter I got said that most of the people in the 1st and 2nd tiers have gotten in years past. It also said that if I don't get in this year, I'm guaranteed admission next year.

    FWIW: I have YET to hear a word from Creighton. My secondary has been done forever...and I haven't even interviewed. Oh well-UNMC was my first choice anyway.
