Just Curious: One of my State schools has an early start for the regular M.D. program (end of May).... Does anyone know how it works if you are accepted to an early program and waitlisted at other schools? Do you have to accept and go to the early start program before waitlist offers come in?

I don't have experience with early start programs. However, once you matriculate at one school you can no longer be accepted by other schools. So, I'm guessing that once you start school at the end of May, you will not get pulled off the waitlist at any other schools.

My school starts early too, the first week of July. Like silverhorse84 said, once you matriculate at any med school, you can't withdraw and go somewhere else anymore. So if FSU starts on May 29, then as soon as you show up for orientation on May 29, you are now officially an FSU student. I assume you're asking this question because right now FSU is your only acceptance and you're waitlisted at a bunch of other places. If the end of May comes, and FSU is still the only school you're accepted to, you should go to FSU and withdraw from all of your waitlists. Otherwise, you run the risk of not starting med school this year at all. That would totally suck, especially because you said you loved the school. Good luck!
