Hmmm...what was the original question again?? I thought this thread was about the waitlist at PCOM...In reponse to the original question, there is no real true general opinion on which schools you should and shouldnt apply to. Each school has their faults and their prizes. I currently attend NSUCOM. If I had to make the choice again, I would be hesitant. HOWEVER, almost everyone at their medical school feels this way at some point. Go with what you feel will give you the best medical education.
Previous years they have called people up until the third day of orientation to pull them off of the waitlist so you still have a full month window for waitlist movement. I would also switch your contact to Tammi Wrice instead of Deb since Deb resigned and will be leaving shortly.DOCTORSAIB said:This waiting is killing me. I keep hearing that 100% of the people on the WL have received acceptances. Im wondering how that can happen this year if there are around 100 people on the WL and its almost mid-July...
To make matters worse, Ive been trying to contact Deborah Erdner, but shes not returning my phone calls..
Oh well, good luck to everyone on the WL. Never give up!
PCOM starts, I believe, August 16th. Orientation is the week before, so if I were you, I wouldnt go too far and make sure you take your cell phone with you. From what I understand, if they call you for an acceptance at the last minute and you dont return their call within 24 hours, someone else gets the spot. Hope that helps. Take care!
