for some reason i think if we just wait a few weeks more spots will be available...i am still pretty sure there are more spots available...there is no way 15 people from the pool make the class full......maybe they are just taking their time to review apps

From what I heard from an MSII, there might not be much movement off the list this year and it might move more slowly.

i heard the same thing.

i don't want to stress anybody out cuz i'm already stressed out.

but ( i will anyway cuz we still like to know stuff that stresses us out) when i turned in a update letter to zeglen (2 weeks ago) he said that this year people are not dropping their acceptances as much as past years around this time of year, which he said is fortunate for them but not so much for us waitlisters. but yea, hopefully things will still move. please.

hey guys as far as waitlist movement is concerned


1) is their first week of calls to fill up the class after the may 15th withdrawals, in which case we would expect a lot of movement normally and that would be when most of the people from the pool actually get called to go to ucsd.......i.e. did we get really royally shafted with only 15. calls............OR

2) are the majority of calls from the acc. pool well after may 15th...that is to say, are most people called from the pool not products of May 15th withdrawals, but POST MAY 15th withdrawals..

Scenario 1 is bad for us since only 15 calls up were made....but if we look at threads years past there weren't that many calls made immediately aftermay 15th anyways, so it looks like scenario 2 still holds strong (that is to say there will still be a lot of withdrawals post may 15th) any comments

btw guys...almost every year there is speculation of slow waitlist...i mean last year...actually exactly 1 year from today someone posted on the board...

"i think there's been much less movement this year than previous years. only a few from SDN have been accepted which is somewhat surprising to me (if there has indeed been good movement). i know of two people that were accepted last week. patience, patience, patience! (and plans to move in the meantime!)"

and we know that year they accepted 90! people off the waitilst.......even at that point the adcom had said there was slow movement after may 15th.....be patient guys...things pick up!

I think you've posted some really insightful comments. I'm going to sit back and let other people with more knowledge speculate before I throw myself out there! I do think you have made some good points though about scenario two.

with no disrespect to UCLA, its because, in my mind, UCSD is a better school, and San Diego is a better city...

Friends,

I recently withdrew from the UCSD acceptable pool. I know that's not saying much, but it's one more potential spot!

Best of luck! :luck:

Well God Bless You too Dubrovnik, I encourage all people in the UCSD acceptable pool who have no desire to attend UCSD to withdraw as well...

congrats beepbeep! I would give anything I have to get that call from Dean Kelly, but as each day passes and as she passes over my application I lose a little hope.

Rounds 2-7 are on:thumbup:...

I'm in! Also got the call from Dean Kelly around 2pm. Still speechless.

I sincerely hope all of you get in. Unfortunately I couldn't get much more info other than they had a few spots to offer out today. :luck:

congrats coral! I dont think we can complain about SDN'ers not getting in off the pool anymore. On a more somber note, I am now considering myself a re-applicant :confused:

No, no, don't give up hope! It's still early--schools are still processing withdrawals and going through waitlists. I think previous posters are correct in that the bulk of movement will happen in a bit as others get off waitlists and withdraw.

by the way beep beep, thank you for posting! i wasn't trying to be snide, and i was just thinking how ironic it would be if they were ready to offer me acceptance in august, and i couldn't go :(...

congrats though! enjoy your summer :)

This thread has been quiet for a while, so I thought I would attempt to bring it back to life. Any more good news out there for my fellow acceptable pool swimmers? Nothing for me, not so much as a peep, but I am hoping June brings with it some more good luck and good news!

hey guys...sorry i've been mia...just helping my parents move to a new house in so cal...I have a very strong inclination that the adcom has not met for a week....and since wednesday no one has gotten in...the saturday post of the allopathic thread got in on wednesday....and I don't think anyone got in on 5/21, because frankly i would expect at least one sdner...which leads me to believe they have only called people on 5/23 and i challenge anyone to prove otherwise :) anyways..good luck to everyone....haven't not gotten a single acceptance and 27 rejections and two holds....i am really pulling for those of you who are as desperate as me...and tmonkeys..cuz I know where he/she lives and he/she needs to get out of there......no offense!

Here's to hoping we all get out of here bump. It's so frustrating that there's been so little movement so far. :(

Have you guys been sending updates to Dean Kelly? I sent one a while back, but she never wrote back so I'm worried that she never got it in the first place...

maybe you could resend it with a note saying something was wrong with your email account and you believe that maybe your email wasn't sent! hey, it could be true! it's happened to me before!

wow...well then Im pretty much screwed if I am to be realistic, and I should probably send in my application for next cycle early. How is it that you are on speaking terms with Dr. Kelly and you havent been accepted? This sucks!
