Congratulations!

I have heard that the first 25 to 30 have a very good chance of getting in. I am sure you will be coming to our class. Do you know if all the applicants have been notified of their status? The reason I ask is a friend of mine, got a scholarship application and has not heard from them. I also know that some people got letters of no-acceptance. I got accepted through early decision.

Good Luck!

PM me if you need any more information!

Hey Panda,

I have also heard the same about the first 25 having a good chance of getting in.

The numbers from last year are as follows

Total KU applications: 1293
KS residents: 413
Nonres w/KS "ties" : 68
Noresidents: 812

Applicants interviewed: 398
KS residents 297
Nonres w/KS "ties": 43
Nonres: 58

Total Admission Offers: 240
Early Decision: 35
Regular Decision: 185
Special programs: 20

Matriculants: 175
Early Decision: 35
Regular Decision: 118
Previous deferrals: 7
Post-Bac program: 9
Scholars in Prim Care: 4
MD/PhD: 2
Reapplicants: 54
KS Residents: 153
KS Percent: 87%
Nonres w/KS "tie": 6
Nonres: 16
Male: 101
Female: 74
African-American: 13
Mexican-American: 4
Native-American: 7
Puerto-Rican Mainland: 0
Other Hispanic: 4

So, as you can see, ~65 people last year declined their acceptance offer!!!! I was accepted to KU Med in december but I'm still waiting to hear back from some other schools. Also, financial aid was just due yesterday, and from what I heard, everyone that wasn't accepted in December should have gotten news of their position yesterday. Hope this helps!!!

Fountain, I got my scholarship application by email last week (several days before I heard from KU), but from what I understand, everyone should now know their status (or should know it shortly).

Felipe, where else are you looking at attending?

peace

felipe,
Both great schools. I went to Wash U for undergrad and worked in Barnes Hospital and at the med. school for a couple years. St. Louis is a great town and everyone I know who went to WU really loves it. It's top-notch in nearly every area.

Good luck and cheers

hey man,

my mom is a college counselor in KC, and she has the pre-med-counselor hook up!!! As far as other schools, I don't think so seeing as my mom's pre-med counselor coworker corresponds to KU quite frequently, and thus got those #'s
