Members don't see this ad.
There seems to be some varying info on this.....
When is the last possible day to accept a spot from a wait list and decline your 'accepted' med school ? Orientation? first day of classes? White Coat? Not that I have anything new to accept:confused:

I asked the same question to UCSD admissions office since I'm waitlisted at their school. The lady told me that once I matriculate at another school, I will be automatically taken off their waitlist. So I'm assuming that once I register to be a student at another school, I will be forfeiting my waitlist position.

Ditto on what Foxy said. I've always heard it was the first day of orientation.

From the horse's mouth (AAMC website):

"After an applicant has enrolled in a U.S. school of medicine or begun a brief orientation program contiguous to enrollment, no further acceptances should be offered to that individual. ...blablablablabla... Enrollment is defined as being officially registered as a member of the first-year entering class at a school. "
