Have y'all considered the start of first year (August versus September) in choosing your medical school? For instance, could you potentially start school in August and be accepted off the waitlist once medical school starts? Had you attended another school that started in September, you would still be eligible to go to the school where you were accepted in August. From what I have heard, you cannot accept a place off the waitlist once you have started at another school. I know chances are slim that you get in somewhere in August, but has start date crossed anyone's mind for this or any other reason? And if so, has it impacted your decision in choosing a medical school?
