Will Texas wait-list movement be significantly reduced this week onwards?

There have been a lot fewer people sharing their news this year than in the past couple of years.
Texas WL offers generally come to a halt around the end of June

Does sending a secondary as reapplicant to a school where you've been waitlisted invalidate your wait-list?

No, it doesn’t.
It’s uncommon because of the 3-4 week processing time, but I suppose it could happen if your app was verified the first day and already sent

Let's hear it, y'all, what's going on?
If you're only on WLs, are you preparing your re-application, or have you figured out what's missing from your application and need a year to add to your activities?

Have you added to and improved your application since last year?
Make a plan to do that while you are waiting.

This thread looks pretty lit. Good luck Texas folks. Wishing the CA system was the same.

This thread was genuinely one of the best things during the app cycle. Definitely was lucky to have it!

Yeah, I agree with @purkinjekitty that this thread was genuinely so helpful and so great to connect with others!

So wysdoc do you think this year has been a slower waitlist movement bc the match did its job or less ppl on sdn taking about their results

I think the schools probably did a pretty good job at filling their classes this year and didn't need to go to the WLs as much.
We had a lot of good participation on this thread this year, thanks to you guys who are fun and supportive to each other!

There are a few places where it's clear people didn't share news here though - on May 17 I shared that 2 people had turned down offers from the McGovern WL. Nobody has spoken up to say they were offered those spots. I figure they went to non-SDN members or shy SDN members :shy:

Waitlist movement seems to be in the gutter compared to previous years. Either that, or people aren't posting their WL As. In our class discord, there have been ~15-20 additions in the past couple of months, which is on par with what the MSAR claims, but who knows?

Do you think those are people who just joined the discord late, or were they really accepted from the WL in these last 2 months?

There's certainly no definitive proof. Though some students gave an introduction, none mentioned if they were accepted off the waitlist, so I'm only assuming. The only reason I think these are waitlisters is because about half of them joined on the same day within several hours of each other.

@wysdoc has this year's republic thread already started?
No I don’t usually start it up until July or so since most of the early questions go more on the TMDSAS questions side or the school specific threads.
When I feel like all the WL activity is over for 2023-2024 I will close down the current Republic of Texas thread & open a new one :)

Always been curious as a long time lurker, what does the XLII mean? Has this forum been an annual thing for 42 years???

Happy to have been part of this cycle with y’all, hopefully future cycles’ students will be able to gain as much from this thread as I did this year.

Anxious and excited to see what the future holds in store!
