    my friend just got his first acceptance yesterday morning via a phone call from Nova..it was funny because he had no idea he still had a shot there and told them that he thought he had been rejected already:)

      CONGRATS! I hope to see you both this fall!

      i think its early for waitlist but for VCU, you have like 2 more months before classes start right at VCU? the rest of us on waitlist could potentially have to wait till mid august.

      accepted 1 out of 3 waitlists

      hey were you accepted at howard? i might be mistaking you with someone else though.

            Schools also save spots for people they expect to repeat a year if Spring grades are poor and need to repeat. Depending on finals week, spots may open up for the wait lists.


            Is this true? I just finished a semester and have a spring term to finish with classes that are required to matriculate. If there is any truth to this it definitely gives me hope.

              LURCH, what up buddy?! I've been layin low on SDN, it helps to keep me from getting depressed. I've been just focusing on school, graduate after a couple summer classes. Still on a couple of alt lists. Hope I get in before I have to reapply in a month.... geez.... I'm hoping for some movement now that it's May and the schools will hopefully kick all of the squatters off their lists.
              haisha, no worries bro! I didn't go to college & check ME out!!!!

              hah.

                  MWU and Buffalo. It's coming down to the wire here. I'm okay with it though. After I graduate I'll just reapply and study for the DAT again to bring up a couple sections. Ultimately if dentistry doesn't work out for me I could always be a writer, although I'm not oppressed nor am I gay.....

                      shouldn't us waitlist people start hearing more now....isn't there something significant about may 5th? is that the day schools can see if people are double deposited?

                      honestly tho, how many ppl actually hold more than 1 deposit?

                          i cant believe you havn't gotten in yet. your dat scores are like 98th percentile! cant do much better than that..

                          Haha, yeah I hear that often. Maybe I just need to brush up on my interviewing skills. I guess high-fiving during my interviews wasn't a good idea.

                          "...you like dentistry too?! Awesome, up high, dawg!"
