Hey guys, I'm a little confused about the whole waitlist process, so I was hoping that one or two of you could provide me with some insight. First of all, in general are waitlists formulated for applicants based on their acceptance status? I.e., since all med schools can see where you were accepted in March, do they usually rank those who haven't been accepted anywhere near the top of the list? That would make more sense since these folks would likely to attend the school. Of course, I know that it's based on important factors such as your application, interview, etc., but I have never thought about this particular aspect before. I have one acceptance and a few other schools that I am still waiting to hear from (rejected, accepted, or waitlisted). But let's say May 15 arrives, and I get waitlisted at all of these schools, and have been on no other interviews. And suppose my top choice school is one where I'm waitlisted. Since we are allowed to hold only one acceptance after May 15, would I need to withdraw from all of these schools in May and just plan on attending the one institution to which I have been accepted? Or can I hold on to the waitlists as well? Therefore, if accepted to my top choice in the summer, then I would withdraw from the other acceptance. I'm assuming that this means I'll lose my deposit, but oh well.
