Members don't see this ad.
I recently received an email from Mt. Sinai saying that they have cancelled their 2nd look for waitlisters this year--- the strange part was they sent it in a mass email stating all the recipients!! From what i gather, all WLers now know not only how many people are on the list (180), but their names and schools!! Perhaps MSSM should be a little more careful in their correspondence, as they could not have meant to do this! :laugh:

i have a quick question for you sinai ex-interviewees:
how long did it take you post-interview to be notified? waitlist or acceptance?
were you notified via snail mail or email first??
just curious - since i'm waiting

thanks!

The post-interview time was very different for different people. I was fortunate enough to hear back about a week after my interview but there are many people who are on here who didn't hear back for a month or more. Some of those people still got accepted straight off so the time you wait doesn't correlate with your chances.

As for acceptences, they are given via e-mail with follow up snail-mail. I'm not 100% sure on the waitlists, but I believe it's only snail-mail.

Interviewed in early Nov. and didn't hear anything until the email last week about the waitlist. I called up and found out that they supposedly notified me 6 weeks (mid Dec) about my status. Either the letter was lost in the mail or they are not on top of things there. If you haven't heard in awhile, I would seriously call up and find out what's up.

I sort of expected this from MSSM. I mean, on the date of my interview, they scheduled conflicting interview times, their presentation powerpoint was shown twice because some faculties walked in late, students showed up late for lunch (we were kept entertained by Kelli Bailey), tour was cut short because the guide had plans to be elsewhere, and despite all that I'm still hoping for good news from the waitlist :cool:

I received my waitlist notification (the email one) about three weeks after my interview.

Also, I only find 154 students in the waitlist email, does that mean there are more than one batches of MSSM waitlist emails? If someone is as anxious as I am about the answer, the first email on my list is @bowdoin.edu and the last is @urmc.Rochester.edu.

[Edit: should be 180, counting error]

In the post on this forum about the second look/waitlist e-mail, someone posted that their list is 180 people long. Perhaps there are 2 or more lists then, but you'd have to find that post and ask the person who wrote that.

uh oh, there are at least two lists. mine starts with yale.edu, is populated with mostly hotmail and yahoo, and ends with wesleyan.

so we can guess the total list is about 300+. doesnt look good.

counted 109. So, what? There's like 3,468 people on the waitlist out of the 3,469 that interviewed and didn't get accepted? I thought we were in a "good position of high acceptableness," with a good chance of being pulled off in May or June... ha ha.

this is my first post so bear with me but i'm waiting on sinai too and it's driving me nuts. maybe the list sent out differently to different people? because mine started with @bowdoin.edu and ended with [email protected] but it had 180 people in total. it also had tons of hotmail and yahoo on it. how many people were on the list that started with yale.edu and ended with wesleyan?
