Waitlisted at PNWU. Interviewed 3/21. Anyone know if they take LOIs?

The email said this:

"PNWU-COM encourages you to continue working on strengthening your application. Please use the AACOMAS update periods for academic updates. PNWU will accept activity updates and additional letters of recommendation through the month of April.

If you would like information regarding feedback regarding this decision or to discuss options to strengthen your application, please email or call our Admissions Office."
 
Does anyone know when PCOM starts accepting off the waitlist? I was waitlisted in December and I can't find information anywhere

One of the DO schools wants me to commit with a contract saying that they will contact all schools including MD schools where I’m on waitlists, and of course they want me to signed it before May 1. What I don’t understand is how does this DO school know which MD schools I’m on the waitlist for
Is this OCOM? Sounds like OCOM.

Is this liberty? I heard some people sign it and get an acceptance soon after… but I still think it’s wild that schools are making students do this yet they don’t even give a full acceptance or give commitment in return.

Whoops I didn’t know there was a waitlist support thread for just DO so I ended up posting this in the general waitlist thread. Any thoughts? Also how is the WL movement for BCOM and Kansas COM? :

I am currently on the WL for 6 different programs. This has been such a long cycle, I really hope to hear back something soon. :(
 
Any one know waitlist movement for KansasCOM, Vcom Carolina?
 
Do yall think after May 1, waitlist movement will favor those with 0 acceptances?

If AACOMAS let's school know with acceptances, school will know students with acceptance who will less likely matriculate.

Because, at the end of the day, they want to fulfill the seat.

More than anything from matriculants from previous years posting the letter of intent or updates to the school can move students up to the top of the list (its speculated) I have seen "unranked waitlists" go out of order due to some sort of intent or large update.

Agree with kamikaze. Yes after may 1 there is likely a ton of WL movement because of people withdrawing, but you should definitely keep in touch with your WL schools send updates and interest letters, and definitely a letter of intent to your top choice if they accept them!

I’ve sent updates, a letter of intent, and called the offices of the schools I’m waitlisted at a few times over the last five months so I think I’ve exhausted all of my options and have no other updates. The schools have been very nice and keep telling me to be patient but I am so stressed and tired and I really hope to hear something in the next week or so!

Any advice on what to say or do to get off the WL? No recent updates, already sent LOI. I do have 1 A but I really want to get off the WL for my top choice!
 
sent an LOI to my top school on May 1 on the to and I'm literally dying while waiting. I hate how they can just leave us in limbo-like I don't know what to do with my job, whether I'll need to leave the state or not...so demoralizing.

SAME. Also, your username - same. I just want to know already! I’m waitlisted at 3 schools.

I feel this, and I feel even more solidarity due to our usernames

Is it worth it to call the admissions office of the school you’re waitlisted at? Does it make a difference? Just wondering bc one school I called back in March for an update, the next day I got an II lol so I’m wondering

I feel for you, LOL I really thought I’d hear back today on the dot. It depends on the school but I think it’s mainly after the May 15 deadline for most DOs.
 
Is it just me or does it seem like WLs are moving so slow this year? Usually by this time, there’s tons of waitlist movement. :(

one of my friends said that it’s due to slow FAFSA processing this year?? but i feel the same way my waitlist school has had NO MOVEMENT at all for a month :/
