This is my second year applying and my second go around with alternate lists. If I don't get in this year my MCATs expire so I can't reapply for a while and it looks like I may have to choose a different life path. I have been working with doctors for 2 years in clinical research and they, along with everyone who knows me, are shocked that I can't get in. I am on 3 wait lists and on hold at one school. This really is the craziest process ever. I have done everything I can at this point, sent letters/ phone calls/ etc. All we can do is wait. It is heartbreakingly frustrating.
If this is only your first round, reapply ASAP, - I got 4x as many interviews this year as last year, my problem was the timing - one of my rec letters got held up and didn't go in until September. The one thing out of my control...GRR.
Good luck everyone, I hope something works out for all of us.
I feel you. Don't worry. I think something will work out for you. And three waitlists are better than one. Trust me. GW is the only thing for me right now and I am 100% reapplying or finding other alternatives. I am hopeful. But I'm also being realistic as there are a hundred of us eager to get into GW.
I know a girl who was offered a GW acceptance a month after her interview in December of last cycle. She got a 25 on her MCAT. How crazy is that?
And my other friend with a 32 hasn't gotten in any where.
Mystery. It's what life is.
