OMG!!! i still can't believe it, but apparently UF went through its ENTIRE waitlist this year and now they're going back through rejected applications and i got in!!! :eek: i can't believe it! this is leila, by the way, but i haven't been able to log on since they revamped the forums, so i just created a new account. so now a spot at USF will be opening up, and leila's gonna be a leilagator! i'm too excited to go update the waitlist and accepted threads now, but if nobody else gets to it i'll do them later. haha! i'm so happy! my parents are going nuts (they live in gainesville). just wanted to share my happy news and let everyone know that this year is very unusal for applicants and that there's still hope! i was actually in tampa looking for housing when i got the call on my cell. keep hoping and good luck! :D

oh, and i take back every mean thing i said about uf after they rejected me!

Leila,
I'm so happy for you!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
:clap: :clap: You deserve this. And don't worry about taking bad things you said back. I did the same thing when I got into UM. I had talked so much garbage about the school when I was waitlisted, and now I love everything about the darn school.I'm super happy about going there.:D Who knew?;)

*Editing: I updated all of the lists I could find for you, leila.*

First of all, congrats!!!! What did they say when they called? Did they apologize for rejecting you?? I would've made them sweat if I were you. :p

Second of all, where the hell is Caveman????? I told him this was gonna happen to UF a long time ago. I think I'm gonna pull up my post from March where I said UF's yield would drop this year. :p I didn't anticipate that it'd fall off a cliff though. :p :oops:

first of all, congrats! that's fantastic. 2nd- and this is really interesting- check it out. without looking at their names, judge the gender of the author based on his/her responses to leila's fortune. I was 100% accurate- and wishy-washy with my decision only with Pocwana.

thanks everyone (especially canes for updating the lists)! i don't think it's sunk in yet... i've been picturing myself in tampa for so long, and now i feel like i have to revise my whole idea of what med school will be like, especially since my family lives there. it sure feels good though!!!

congratulations!!:clap: :clap: :clap: actually, the situation UF is in may not be at all uncommon among med schools this year. I was taken off the University of Arizona waitlist in early July as #38 of 39 waitlisted applicants, and when I went to the admissions office and found out I was accepted I found out that the person below me on the waitlist had been accepted as well. When I asked the lady at the desk what they were going to do if more spaces opened up and she wouldn't tell me anything except that they had had a meeting to discuss it. So, UA may also be accepting previously rejected applicants (rooting for some of you on this board!) or adding a few spaces to the class of 2007 and expanding their waitlist next year. This is just conjecture though, based on what happened with UF this year. good luck at UF and congrats to Leila!:)

wow, thanks everyone! i still can't believe my good luck. i'm not sure how they arrange the photos on the acceptance board there, but i was the second to last one, so it looks like they might have had to do the same thing to at least one other person! i wonder how many rejected applicants they'll accept in all... what a crazy year! all right, i'm off to join the UF Gators thread! :D
