What is the high priority waitlist? In your experience, does it move?
On a more personal note, I was told that I will not be informed of my situation until after May 15th. The problem is that my second choice requires a decision by April 15th. What should I do? Will a letter of Intent help at all?

Thanks all for your input....very much appreciated.

What do you mean by your second choice requires a decision by April 15th? Does this program require you to withdraw from the UCSF waitlist or just withdraw acceptances? In that case, withdraw your other acceptances and wait for UCSF in the meantime.

I don't know if letters of intent help at UCSF, call the dean and ask.

According to AAMC guidelines, April 15th should be the date to be holding only one acceptance to that medical school, but you can remain on as many waitlists as you want. You can stay on waitlists up until classes actually start at the school you're accepted at, although you may forfeit the deposit you were holding at that school.
