I've been accepted at School B, and have been waitlisted at School A which is my first choice medical school. I am currently writing a letter of intent to School A, and I am planning on mentioning that I have been accepted to another MD program, however after scrolling through tons of content and opinions both on SDN and elsewhere, I can't find consensus as to whether to explicitly name School B in the letter of intent or not. I've found several people who are of the opinion that it is in poor taste to name School B in the letter, but I know for instance, that @Goro always says "Yale wants to know if I've been accepted at Harvard." Unfortunately I'm not dealing with any Harvards or Yales, but School A & B are ranked very similarly. I also don't know if the implementation of the Choose Your Medical School tool affects the majority opinion on this matter, as a lot of opinions I've read are from pre-2019.
