    "At this time you have been placed in a 'hold' category. This means you have not been invited for an interview. However, your file will be reviewed again throughout the year."


    I got this letter from DMU yesterday. I know what being on hold means, but I don't know what it means at DMU. Do they put most applicants on hold until they fill the class, or are some people's applications rejected at this point? Just wondering if it's worth it to update my appliation file there.

    If one gets on one of these holds, lets say like since september. Is there anything you can do to be brought back into their minds: LOI? A pleasant email?

    First-Year Class Matriculants’
    Self-Reported Race/Ethnicity:
    Percentages are based on self-reported data and
    therefore may not equal 100%.
    American Indian or Alaska Native: <1%
    Asian: 20%
    Black or African American: <1%
    Hispanic/Latino: 2%
    White: 77%
    Pacific Islander: 0%
    Other/No Answer: 0%


    97% white or Asian, <1% black, definitely don't want to be the only black guy in class. I guess Asian counts as diversity.

    To be fair you didn't specify black as the only thing counting as diversity

    I always thought diversity = not white. But i mean it's whatever, if you don't think you would be comfortable there..

    You probably will not encounter many AA in med school no matter where you go unless you go to one of the HBCU schools... I don't remember seeing many med schools (MD/DO) with >7% AA in their student body.

    Plus "diversity" is more than just skin color. LGBT for example.

    True. Older students, and people from different religious backgrounds too.
