Does anybody remember whether or not Creighton ranks their waitlist? I know there is movement on it and I am just wondering just how they treat their alternate list.

At my interview, they said that they do not rank the waitlist. Consequently, how in the hell they decide between applicants on the alternate list is probably something that you're not going to ultimately find out.

Anybody heard anything new from the waitlist at Creighton? When do you think we will hear something?

I've heard nothing yet. I bet we won't hear much until we get closer to May 15th though.

I was wondering if anybody filled out the Alternate Response Form as fast as I did. I got it at 4:01 PM and sent in with my intent to keep my status at 4:41 PM. Hopefully, we all get good news. Good luck to the rest of you guys!!!

Did you email it back to them, or did you mail off a letter via snail mail?

Oops. I guess I should read instructions a wee bit more carefully.:rolleyes: I just e-mailed mine back to them.

Anyways, so Creighton's "May 15th" is actually early June eh? Well, let's not lose hope here. This is one of three schools I am still on the waitlist for. I can't believe that someone on the official 2008 waitlist movement thread has gotten four acceptances from being on the waitlist...wow.

If you are on the waitlist, make sure you update Creighton with new activities and accomplishments. Since the list is "unranked", things are in a state of constant flux.

I was wondering if anyone on the waitlist has done anything in terms of housing. This question goes to current med students there who were originally waitlisted and then got accepted and how you guys handled this issue. Quite frankly, I have looked around but have not been able to commit or do anything because I have not gotten acceptance yet. Any thoughts or guidance on this matter?

holy crap dude, i checked out your mdapps profile. no wonder you haven't gotten in anywhere! you've applied to the top, top schools and only had a 29 mcat! are you crazy?? your gpa was good but even your ECs are filled with bs honors. you should have applied to lower tiers and you'd have multiple acceptances by now. man, seriously, what were you thinking! and you're asian! that definitely hurts you! hehe i hope you get in!

Come to think of it, what would you consider "lower tier" schools? Are there such schools in terms of the competition at all medical schools if you look at this year and years past?

yes, they will be sending out the first wave of waitlist acceptances in the first or second week of june.

don't even bother looking for housing until you hear of an acceptance. there are far better ways to spend the precious limited time you have in life. do something fun. housing will always be around, and why would you look if you can't commit to anything?? even if you dont find your dream rental, go month to month until you do if you have to... relax, take a deep breath, and just keep waiting, there's not much you can do.

lower tier schools are a term used on this forum by people who are qualified to get into big name schools. makes them feel better about themselves. every medical school gets you an MD, some way or another. some are less competitive than others, and for that reason, the snobby elite school matriculants like to see it as a flaw. this trend will continue throughout life, be ready for it in residency, job hunting, and just about everything else.

i havent looked at your profile, but if you have to reapply, apply only to schools you would ACTUALLY go to if accepted, and step back and evaluate where YOU are competitive.

Wow, there's been no movement at all? Did this happen last year as well?? Honestly, I'm a bit shocked considering the tuition costs; I figured more people would've given up their Creighton acceptance and gone elsewhere. Anyway, best of luck to those still waiting..hopefully things pick up soon.
