    During my interview, Dr. Haight stated that traditionally everyone off the high waitlist gets in, or has a very good chance of getting in, I think you should be alright:thumbup:

    Chances are they liked you, but liked several others just slightly better. It is getting to the time where they don't have the room to accept everyone in your group of interviews.

    Honestly, I don't have an exact answer for you as a late applicant myself. BUT, to me it seems like you'd have an excellent chance! Is TUCOM your top choice? You might consider sending them a letter letting them know this. However, from what Dr. Haight said during my interview in January, I think you will have your acceptance this year!

    He said sometimes you get off, but it varies, no guarantees on that list.

    There isn't a guarantee on the high priority list either, but you have to wait through the entire high priority list before you even get looked at.

    I was high waitlisted and told I should get pulled and didnt... only 3 people that year did, making it tough to get early accept that year too, which i didnt. it really depends on the class.

    Kinda of interesting how you can be high waitlisted when you didnt get a interview with a mcat score of 20. I thought you had to be interviewed to be considered for admission. apparently you dont know anything. I checked out your history.

    Which Is better TUCOM CA or TUCOM NV? I think Ca has a longer history and therefore more affiliations with hospitals, but I liked the actual NV "campus" better and the whole vibe was better in NV. What would most ppl choose?

    I'm placed as a high alternate at TUCOM-MI and also on the waitlist at TUCOM-NV. I really really really want to get into the one on Mare Island. So if I had to choose, I'd choose TUCOM-MI.
