Students I know who have participated in these programs say they are very helpful. I graduated in '06, so it's nice to get back into the mode of classes and whatnot. And I'm bored with my job. It's either work or school, so... Anyway, I have a question I'm hoping someone can answer. By participating in a pre-matriculation program that only invites accepted students, am I binded to the school? Or could I still accept a wait-list invite, if it is granted? I am happy to be on my way to medical school and I definitely don't want to burn any bridges. If I were granted an acceptance from the wait-list, I'm not even sure that I would take it, but I would like to have the option if it presents itself. My first guess would be pre-matriculation = non-binding, simply by the term pre-matriculation. I've looked over my program paperwork thoroughly and it doesn't mention any implied contract or commitment. Of course it would be ideal if I could just ask the program director. But I feel that this is a sensitive subject that could be taken the wrong way if approached improperly. Thoughts? Thank you.
