Let's keep each other updated on information or any movement on the waitlist. I'm on the HP list and badly want to get into Jefferson.

Also on the HPWL and Jefferson is my #1. I haven't heard anything, but am hoping for news soon... Anyone know how many people get put on the HPWL as opposed to the regular WL?

someone in another thread mentioned he/she heard 60% off the HPWL gain acceptance, which would lead me to believe no one does off the regular waitlist.

I have no verification of this statement though so take it with a grain of salt.

I heard (from Dr. Callahan) that they take people off of both lists.

I'm in the same boat: HPWL. Jefferson is also by far my number one choice, and I'm dying to get that phone call. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
Wut up PokerDoc.

I've been skimming the wait-list threads from the last couple years and it looks like very few people get phone calls around the 15th. Most of the acceptances were from the following week all the way into July/August. I guess is depends on the status of withdrawals. Anybody talk to Dr. Callahan yet?

best of luck to you blackbird.. thanks for letting us know.


as for the rest of you waiting with me on the greatest phone call ever.. just be patient.. obviously as you can see, there are several of us highly qualified applicants who have jefferson as our first choice.. so clearly the deans have their work cut out for them in choosing off the waitlist.

i noticed the last person to post about getting a call (numedhead) was still on a wednesday.. i wonder if none of us will hear a word until at least next wednesday if they are sticking with that pattern, despite the fact of the 15th just having passed.

I'd be interested in knowing if she said anything else about this. Was there more to your conversation? Is it because they usually go through the whole high priority list?

I hope we start hearing something soon...

I'm afraid that I don't have any other info. I was disappointed to end up on the LP WL so I send an email basically asking if the LP list is a polite rejection... I was told not to give up because they "do" take people from both lists (sadly I don't know if they exhaust the HP list before going to the LP list). Good luck everyone! I hope to join you at JMC!

That is the same information that I have received. I don't know if Dr. Brooks is super nice and making me feel ok, but she seems pretty positive about my chances even being on the normal wait list.

Eh. Not to be a pessimist, but I'm on the normal waitlist and she gave me the same impression. "I'm sure you'll be fine," she said. I think they're just super nice and don't won't us to give up hope because there's still a *slight* chance we might get in. :rolleyes:

Do they meet every Wednesday for sure? Or are we all just crossing our fingers?

they did during the interview season.. we are presuming this to hold true through the entire process but we are unsure.. so far the only person who has posted on here as being accepted did so on a wednesday.

Yea, however, I PMed Numedhead, and he was actually part of the DIMER program. So i don't think I've started taking regular HP waitlisters. But i don't know for sure.

thanks for clearing that up!

for those of you who also didn't know, here's what DIMERS is:



Delaware Institute for Medical Education and Research (DIMER)



Through DIMER, Delaware has a relationship with Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, resulting in Jefferson Medical College functioning as Delaware's medical school. Through the program, the state of Delaware provides payment to Jefferson Medical College to reserve at least 20 admissions each year for Delaware residents.

I asked Dr. Callahan a few days ago about WL movement for my friend, and she said she's still "in a holding pattern" because of multi-acceptance people that haven't withdrawn and other linkages. So, you guys probably won't see significant movement until June.

Just curious what "other linkages" might mean? Is it the Post-Bacc students or DIMER.

Anyone hear anything new?

Anyone else think it is ridiculous that people are still holding multiple acceptances (not counting those that just got in off a waitlist)

theres not much they can do if those schools failed to give them financial aid letters in a certain amount of time.. id venture to guess that would be most people's reason
