Does anyone have any idea what it means to be in the acceptable pool? When are we going to hear something?

i interviewed in november i think, maybe october. i got put in the acceptable pool about 4 weeks after i interviewed.

when i interviewed, i thought they said that people would be pulled off the acceptable pool and given acceptances throughout the cycle as ucsd had interviewed more of its applicants. however, it doesnt seem like anyone has been taken out of this pool post-interview, so i am clearly wrong about this idea. (i also thought this was the case for OHSU's hold pool, which so far i am wrong about also).

I also interviewed during the last week of Feb... but I didn't get a phone call from them today. Did Yvonne specifically say they are reviewing the application from the last two weeks of Feb.? When I interviewed at UCSD, the interviewers told me they are meeting once every two weeks, and they told me they are supposed to meet last Monday...
Good luck to everyone!

I was under the impression that acceptable pool people would start really seeing action around May 15, and by the end of May, a waitlist would be formed from the top half of the acceptable pool. I haven't heard of anyone getting pulled out of the acceptable pool yet.

I was told that the acceptable pool is dynamic, meaning applicants in this group get reviewed every meeting (every other monday). Thus, someone in the acceptable pool can potentially get accepted anytime before May 15th. BTW, SD is expecting to accept 75-125 more applicants this year. The waitlist is compiled in Mid-June, and the majority of the waitlist movement occur by mid-July.

Really. This would be very good news for those of us in the acceptable pool. Where did you hear this? And have you heard of anyone getting pulled from the pool this year so far?

Dr. Kelly.

I don't know if anyone has been accepted from the pool this year. Although Dr. Kelly said (and I paraphrase) that "very few applicants are offered straight-up acceptances. UCSD sets the bar very very high initially, and as spaces become available, that bar gets lower and lower until the spaces are filled."

It seems like UCSD is very big on numbers. I bet applicants who have been offered acceptances to UCSD this year have unbelievable numbers.

In another ucsd thread, scrappysurfer mentioned there's also a ranked waitlist in addition to the acceptable pool, although that's the first time I have heard of that. Can you tell I'm obsessing over sd? :laugh:

Hey everyone. So I was just as confused as the rest of you about whether or not SD has a waitlist or not. However, after having read several UCSD threads on SDN and from what Yvonne at the admissions office told me I realized that infact UCSD DOES have a ranked waitlist. I think this waitlist will be made sometime between May and June. I plan to call the admissions office tom. in order to get some more information about this list and how it is compiled. I hope this helps and Good luck to everyone.

For those that have heard back either accepted/acceptable pool, does your status on final decisions sent change on their website?

Thanks.

hey everyone, i do hope u all get accepted and we can be classmates yay!!

im actually a deferall from last year, and just so u guys know....this is what happened this year .....ucsd accepts more than enough people than the 121 people, then as we hit may 15thish it was last year, people could only hold one acceptance, hence after that date, all those in the acceptable pool would be offered a spot as space became available as the months went by.....as we reached june i believe it was the list was reexamined i think and some were given a waitlist spot for the summer and others rejected....

as to what happened to me personally.....i was actually an august mcater ....i interviewed in late february 2004, i had such nice interviewees! .....after i believe 2-3 weeks i was said i was placed into the acceptable pool, then on may 17th....i received an email to call the office...and then ms coleman said i was accepted...and then i screamed like a banshee hehe....so i hope this elucidates some stuff......

keep up the optimism, theres still tons of time left...i remember i got a ucdavis interview as well in april, a ucla one in april and pittsburgh in march....so dont lose hope!

much love!

Fellow [Any Field]
there have been straight up acceptances given out this year, there are several on the acceptance thread, i got one, there is a friggin C/O 2009 thread. as for people getting off the acceptable pool i do not know.

i read somewhere here that 1/4 of the total acceptances given out go straight after interview and the rest are reserved for the acceptable pool. most people get the acceptable pool and lots of acceptances go out at once. i dont know how true this is, but i recall someone at the interview saying around 1/2 of the interviewees get accepted, and i know several ucsd kids that got the pool treatment. ucsd kids have the inside track here, a ton get accepted, so i would have to guess that they do a big acceptance swing around april 15, taking off a bunch of people on the waitlist. jsut idle speculation however....
