Hello,

So back on traffic day this year (04/30/2020), I chose to attend a medical school and withdrew from the others. But now I want to attend one of the medical schools that I withdrew from. Is there any way I can do this, or is there no going back?

Does anyone have any experiences with this situation?

Thanks!

Nothing anyone says here is going to matter. Even if you identify the school, what happened in a prior year with a different candidate might or might not apply to you. All you can do is try, and you have nothing to lose, so just give the school a call and see what happens. Worst comes to worst, no, there is no going back, and you are in the exact same place you are now. Best case, they accommodate you. Odds are that your seat is gone and there is no going back, but who knows? Please let us know what happens!

Just ask them. The worst thing they can do is say no, so there's nothing to lose.

I actually did this. I turned down a program, and two weeks later realized I made a big mistake. I contacted them, they were understanding, and a few days later they readmitted me. Of course, that's purely anecdotal, and it will be different in every scenario and at every school, but you're going to always wonder unless you try.
