    Hi I just wanted to know how many of you have Pritzker as your number one choice.

    All you have to do is respond to the thread and say "YES".

    Thanks
    :cool:

    Pelican, you did not pay attention to my previous post. Allow me to qualify: Last year, I had three friends get in off of the waitlist at Pritzker. It wasn't until around June. From what I understand, quite a few in the class got in via this route. Fear not, Pelican Man !

I thought that they only waitlisted 100 people and took roughly one third of them. I don't see how they could put 300 people on an alternate list when they do not even have to accept 250 people to fill their class (based on admissions info from <a href="http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/grad/dir-med/admis_04033.htm" target="_blank">USNews</a>).

    Pelicanman,

    I'm curious about why Pritzker is your first choice. I'm considering the school, but I'm MSTP, and so I don't think that my decision will affect the MD admissions process.

    its the perfect school for me.

    I didn't think I would find a school perfect for me but Pritzker is it.

    Just because its perfect for me doesn't mean it will be perfect for you.

    Some of the reasons are

    1. Pass Fail
    2. Chicago
    3. my sister going to live there
    4. lecture all the time
    5. research easy
    6. part of undergrad campus
    7. curriculum
    8. good ass reputation
    9. everything i am looking for

    YES

    and to add one to your list PelicanMan, a place where pritzker really shines is the support the administration and faculty give to their students and the priortiy that studetns concerns and student life is given. good luck pelicanman I hope I see you this fall
