well for the most part the lists are set in stone....i asked my cuz who is on the board of her school and she said letters really dont help...it just makes people feel better about their chances..and that they did something. vs nothing.

I can't tell you what will help, but I can tell you that calling and talking to the hired secretary will do absolutely nothing for you.

Try a letter of update/interest.

its good to know her advice speaks for ALL MED SCHOOLS and not just the med school she happens to work at.

I'm somewhat surprised that someone hasn't suggested "Withdraw" as a way to get off the waitlist...

write them update/letters of intent to attend their school if admitted (at least to your favorite one), like tell them what neat things you've been doing since filling out ur amcas and close with something like "gaining admission to and attending _______ in the fall is my highest priority"
