The deadline was moved up to October 2nd this year as opposed to early November. Considering the deadline was moved up a month, do you suppose MUSC will send out notifications earlier than last cycle?

Our OT/PT club is hosting a panel with them this week so I am going to ask! I'm really hoping so!

"Although we are not able to offer you a definite position in the Class of 2021 at this time, your qualifications are very good, and we have placed your name on a list of potential alternates."
Is this what everyone's alternate email said? "very good?"

Sadly declining the offer from MUSC. Just can't justify the cost vs. other offers. Good luck all!

For those accepted from the waitlist in past years or anyone in the program currently, do you know the odds of being pulled off MUSC’s waitlist? Or know anything about it at all? The email says we can’t inquire about our position etc and I’m so curious. Any info will help, thanks!
