Yup, currently on the waitlist. I'm in the masters program here at MWU and by my count there are about 5 of us on the waitlist for dental. Also, one other girl just gave up her spot cause she got into d-school in her home state. Good luck to all of us!

Hey Oracle,
I'm going to Western.
It was just closer to home for me. Midwestern is really cool and I know it will be a great school in the future. Thanks for all your advice! Good luck in school!:thumbup:

Yes, I am in the one yr program and no I haven't been accepted yet.

It's really pointless to compare stats at this point in the game. Just try to relax as we're all pretty much in the same boat here.

I don't know the other students stats off the top of my head. And actually, I miscounted... there's 6 of us on the waitlist by my count to just give you a general idea (not sure about others who are in the program or even the two yr program).

I talked to admissions earlier and they said there are about 50 people on the waitlist this year and last year they took about 15 people from it. Since it's a new school, there's not much of a trend to follow.... small sample size and all that. Whether this adds to or relieves your anxiety, I don't know but those are the facts at this point. Just chill.
