Same boat as you. wait listed by Marquette and Nova, and silent wait list from MWU-Az and Ohio State. Anyone know a ballpark number of how many wait listers get offers typically? I know it varies, but if anyone who's been around these forums longer than I have and has seen a trend over the past few years I'd love to hear what you know.

Waitlisted by OSU (silent) and Marquette (no interview), and I guess a silent waitlist from Case since they never sent me a rejection email before or today (Dr. Chuck said they sent rejection emails ~ 1 month ago and I didn't get one)? Only pre-dec was OSU. Haven't heard anything from some others.

How can you assume that no response from a school is considered a waitlist?? They haven't said anything yet!

How do the waitlists work? Are schools gonna pick from the waitlist in january once people have accepted/declined offer OR do they accept from new interviewees and then pick from waitlist towards the end, like around end of spring/beginning summer?

How do you know you got wait-list from NOVA. Nothing appears? or is there an explicit "wait list"

I got 2 "invited to interview" staring at me since October and no updates today, so I guess that's 2 waitlists.

We'll get through this together guys. Let's have faith in 2014 :)

I interviewed with them a while ago and NOVA doesn't even show up in my portal. Anyone know what that means?

4 interviews...2 prior to December 2nd, 1 in January and the latest in Feb. I'm sitting on 3 waitlists...Waiting to hear back from the recent school. Trying to decide when I need to stop hoping and be realistic. It's funny, because prior to my first interview (at my dream school at that!) I would have killed to be hopeful and on a waitlist at any dental school in the country. But, after getting a taste of what could be; I want more lol. This waiting game is emotionally draining.

Whoever is waitlisted at Nova, Lecom, and ESPECIALLY NYU. Do not worry so much. Realistically each of these schools have massive movement in late Spring due to several reasons..
Nova is quite expensive and not many people's first choice, Lecom for obvious reasons, it is new and no reputation, plus it is in a random location. Finally, NYU has a massive class size and very expensive.
Don't worry so much, be hopeful that you are waitlisted at schools which historically show incredible movement from the wait-list.
Don't forget to keep calling and showing interest though!
Goodluck

Currently wait listed at 3 schools (UF, GRU, LECOM). Waiting to hear back from VCU and have an interview lined up at Indiana soon. Everywhere I have interviewed I have been wait listed, but not accepted. And.......it is driving me NUTS! I absolutely agree with the above poster whom stated that it is emotionally draining, because it is. The best thing that I believe anyone in our shoes can do, is control the variables that you can control and leave the rest up to chance. It is what it is, just control what you can. In my case, its my last semester of my masters program. I wont give up hope yet I am realistic to the chance that I have to reapply again next cycle. Very disheartening, however, control hat you can, and don't stress about the stuff you cant control.

I was put on the alternate at LECOM for the pharmacy program. Nervous I might not get into my first choice school. I have had 3 interviews so far and 1 more in a couple weeks. Heard back from 2 of them, one is the Hold list and the other is the alternate list :/.

Anyone have any info on LECOM about their alternate list and how it works?

Joining this thread. Waitlisted at Columbia and Harvard. Was rejected post-interview from my state school, michigan. Still waiting on UCSF and UPenn, but it's not looking good. People have been telling me to be grateful for my temple acceptance, but it's very draining nonetheless to feel insignificant before these other top schools.

Waitlisted at nova and LECOM. I agree with everyone else. There is no point in worrying. If all you have is waitlist there is no need to stress about getting off, this late in the game you should have very little to no expectation of it happening. Instead, realize and accept your pitiful failure; channel that energy into improving next cycle.

Now are you a sad little failure of a human being who quits because you face some resistance, or are you a strong empowered woman who don't need no man!? I thought so, nothing beats a strong empowered woman especially when they go beast-mode once a month (full moon). I'll see all you fellow failures of this cycle in the front lines next cycle. Persistence pays off and a 1 year delay, while extremely horrible, is nothing compared to working some other shjtty job for the rest of your life.
