at an interview, a staff member mentioned that in amcas md/phd programs can find out the schools in which we've reserved spaces . . . is this info available before may, and if it is, could it hinder our chances at schools that still havent decided on us?

on that note, some schools are asking us to already reserve spaces in their classes. i know that applicants can hold multiple spaces (preferably no more than 2) before may, but it seems like holding these spaces would hurt our chances at schools that are still deciding on our applications. and yet, we'll lose the space if we dont reserve and its hard to pass it up offers if we dont have decisions from the other schools . . . if it's true that schools know where we've reserved, it seems tricky for us, as applicants, especially since schools send acceptances at diff times . . .

any thoughts . . . and thanks!

Beginning in March, the schools which you have accepted MD offers from will have the ability to see any other MD offers you have ACCEPTED. A school that you have not accepted an offer from will not be able to see any information pertaining to your status at other schools. AAMC provides this information through the Multiple Acceptance Report to enable medical schools to more efficiently manage their waiting lists. This report does not reflect MD-PhD offers, so there is no way for one school's admissions committee to know whether the other offers you accepted are for MD or MD-PhD.
