    Have you gone through the waitlist activation process yet? I know a predental friend that was placed on the inactive waitlist last year until he was sent to the active list in the final days before his acceptance. The key is getting onto the active list before the final cut because your odds of being accepted go way up.

    Check with the admissions office to find out if you've been activated or not. If you don't ask in that manner, they will simply tell you that you are still under consideration because they get plenty of inquiries every day and don't have time to explain everything outright. If your status remains inactive after the final meeting, then that's Creighton's way of saying they will send you a rejection letter after admissions is closed out. But if you have been sent to the list of activated predents within the next committee meeting, then you can bet your stars that you still have a fighting chance of being accepted this cycle. The list of activated waitlisters isn't nearly as long as the one of the inactive reserves. They received well over the typical 2,500 applications for only 85 seats this cycle.

    Hi all, just called today and asked Diane for the low-down. She said she doesn't know when they decide on the active waitlist and hasn't heard anything about when the committee will meet again. I was hoping for some more info, but that's all I got. :)

    2quik, are you referring to the 30 people active waitlist? I know that they send a letter offering waitlist status, but then of those who accept the waitlist offer, only 30 are selected for their so-called "active waitlist". Were you talking about this 30 people active waitlist?

    I talked to the director of admissions and he said that they will probably have the active wait list out sometime in April.

    Does anyone know if the people who get spots on the active alternate will be told of their position or place on the list? I remembered reading other SDN posts in the past that said students are not told of their position on the list or that Creighton does not give rankings at all. It seems crazy that they wouldn't give rankings at all because then they would have to re-evaluate every applicant on the list every time a spot opened up. Anyone know how creighton does this?

    I've been waiting for a couple of MONTHS. A bit odd, isn't it?

    I am in the same boat as you guys. I hope them come out with that list soon. They are cutting it down to thirty people from I don't know how many. Hope we all make it and end up as classmates.
