i don't know about waitlists, but...

schools *definitely* know if you're holding >1 acceptance. i got an email last week from one of my schools. they said they had notification from amcas that i'd been accepted at more than one school, and they asked me to let them know if i needed more information from them in making a decision.

i don't know if they know *where* else i was accepted, but they know for sure that i was...

i was surprised!

I just interviewed at Jeff and my interviewed said that when the adcom reviewed me, they'd know where I've been accepted. Apparently AMCAS sends them an update whenever a school accepts you.

He said they wouldn't take it into account, except that if you were holding a bunch of spots, they'd tell you to make up your mind. So they definitely know if/where we've been accepted.

Do you think this affects scholarship decisions? Like if they know you have withdrawn your other acceptances, they won't bother trying so hard to lure you to their school?

Call me naive but I doubt medical schools are going to take away scholarships due to the lack of acceptances elsewhere. I think that if they know you are going to go to their school they might offer you more prestigious scholarships because they wouldn't want someone to refuse to accept a prestigious scholarship because it would make them look bad. Ultimately it is not worth worrying about when there are tons of people waiting on waitlists who just want one acceptance.
