That’s what I mean. He said 100 “acceptances” were sent yesterday and the rest of the “updates” will be sent out today.
Oh, maybe they’re waiting to see who all accepts and then fill spots accordingly for those that decide to reject the offer. That would make sense. We already know a few people decided not to do the program so there’s still hope for yall!

Are you in the groupme?
I'm not in the GroupMe. I'll send you a message.

Also, I just spoke with an admissions counselor at Meharry and she said the program is 100 students in size. Completion of the program guarantees an expedited review of one's medical school application, which could lead to an interview. She also said the requirements for the program won't be released until right before the school year starts because they look at the averages of the incoming class to determine the numbers.

It actually makes sense to me for them to send 100 acceptances and still have more to send because just like med school and just like what we saw on this forum lots of us have already gotten into our top choices, other programs, etc.. and turn down the offer so what I know med schools do is send acceptances 2x the class size.. so it looks like that maybe 1/2 of our MHS class is now filled (give or take) if they go by the same system as med schools.. hopefully this makes sense! Still waiting, and praying!

It isn’t killing a “chance” I never had. Again, I spoke directly to someone about me.
You do have a chance because you’re waitlisted, not rejected which means there’s still a chance. No chance would be being rejected. You trippin. People are obviously gona move off the waitlist since people are rejecting the program. You don’t know where you stand on that list. You’re killing your own chance.

Hey do what's best for you. I'm not going to stay on the waitlist either. I already have a masters of interdisciplinary health science and a master's of biomedical science. I don't want another master that isn't going to lead to a career if one requirement is not met. The other two since they both required me to do a real research project with thesis/paper I know I can a research position somewhere. This degree is a little useless if it doesn't go as planned. Granted, I'm getting another master's but in public health which will lead to a viable career that I will enjoy.

Wow. Congratulations to everyone accepted, I can’t wait to work with you all in August.

All my Waitlisted people, don’t be discouraged. Working in admissions we know that on average about 30-40% of people reject offers so that means about 30 of you all in here will be receiving a late acceptance and unfortunately that means you may not be accepted until the week of the program, but if you want to be a doctor bad enough you go with it and make it happen!

Congrats to the accepted and congrats to the future acceptances.
