      First time poster, but I've been lurking around on the board...

      I'm excited to know that I matched at UTSW too!

      But...I was wondering if anyone is still waiting to hear from other schools (Baylor, perhaps?) before accepting the offer from UTSW?

        will UTSW pay for second look weekend in late Feb.?

        Congratulations on getting into UTSW! It's a great place to be and y'all will love it. Sadly, UTSW doesn't pay for second look weekend (unless they completely hosed me last year). Again, congrats and enjoy the feeling of getting in.

          but seriously. congratulations to all of you for matching. UTSW is a great school and you'll have a great time. I remember how excited I was when I matched last year...don't let that feeling die. umm...that's all I have to say.

                      BenYossarian, you are asking for it. They only pay us like 10 or 15 dollars. Not much, and that is just suppose to cover expenses, etc. Quit making them feel like people pocket a lot of money.

                        I was waitlisted at UTSW and it was my first choice. Is it possible to find out where I rank on the waitlist? Would they tell me if I called? Do they waitlist everyone who interviewed but wasn't accepted?

                        Any information is much appeciated!

                          Hopefully, someone else has more info for you. I only know that they will tell you which quarter your name is on the rank list. I'm not sure if this happens immediately or if they need time to organize the list. I don't think everyone gets waitlisted. I heard last year that you really need to be in the 1st quarter, but I don't know how many or anything. Good Luck!

                            Hi everyone - and CONGRATULATIONS!

                            I am thrilled to have matched here. I actually think it is going to take some time for it all to sink in. The wait for match day seemed to take forever - but what an ending! I look forward to meeting & getting to know you all.

                            Have you checked out the MS0 link on your UTSW status page? From the menu on the status page, click "Register for ms0 day", then you have to tell it yes you are attending and click submit. That opens a form for you to fill out regarding bringing guests, what events you are attending, etc. There is a small link at the bottom "PROGRAM DETAIL" - right above the options for Clinical Opportunities, Curriculum Structure, etc. Click that link and a full itinerary of MS0 day will open in a word document.

                            It looks like two full days of events. Topics include: what to do until school starts, financial aid, research opportunities, about the school, spouse information, where to live, bus tour of Dallas and places to live, party in the student center....and more. Friday & Sat, Feb. 25/26th.

                            I'm sure this will all be in the packet they send as well. I'm definitely attending - are you all?

Also, did any of you recieve the Scholarship? I can;t believe that on top of an acceptance they are offering a scholarship too! (It said in the email it is for 10% students, not need based)

                                WOW! It's kind of fun cancelling my other interviews. This way I get to reject the schools!!!!

                                  I got it, definitely comes as a shocker. Also does anyone go to undergrad out of state? I do and I can't make the MSO :(

                                      I hear you on that one. I have been planning an ~8K a year, I will be might upset if that doesn't come to be.

                                        I don't know about the out of state thing, but this particular scholarship (according to the email) is "based upon your significant accomplishments and upon the recommendation of the Southwestern Medical School Scholarship Committee."

                                            i've always heard the non-residents well pay the instate rate, so don't worry; I'm sure that will still work out.

                                            The 10% sounds like something different. Is it a full scholarship, partial or what? Quite a nice deal either way. UTSW really seems to be a class act -I'm impressed again by the scholarships, the organized hosting, and the MS0 day planning!

                                            btw - i like the new avatar JDAD, i need to get around to finding a new one myself.

                                              Congrats MEADS, so what's your story/stats/accomplishments? Why do you think they chose you?

                                              thanks jdad. truth be told, I have no earthly idea how/why I got it. when i found out i matched at utsw, i figured that i must have been barely acceptable...at the very bottom of that acceptance list. if anything, i give all due credit to my awesome recommenders whose letters rocked. that, or the fact that i know someone on the board. ;) i'm j/k. :p

                                              i'm sure pink and dcham have better stories. :)

                                                NO, I pretty much was like you. And I agree with mwhou, UTSW has really won my heart. They are clearly a class act school that has it all together. They had the best structure interview day I attended, and really made you feel like they wanted you. The scholarship was an enormous shocker for me, and made me so happy. I am just in awe right now :D

                                                  Are you technically out-of-state? I know that the out-of-state scholarships (just enough to get out-of-state tuition waived) go out with acceptances. I got mine in the official packet that comes a couple of days after the match. The phraseology sounds like what I got. I'm pretty sure that most of the other scholarships don't get announced until April/May when financial aid offers come through. I could be wrong, though. Either way, congrats.

                                                  By the way, what are the listing as the Saturday activities for M0 day?

                                                      No, it has nothing to do with being out of state. The scholarships are worth 7K a year, so it pretty much covers tuition!

                                                      I wish I had one.

                                                      Secondly, I am an out-of-stater and I am anxiously awaiting the packet to make sure that I will get the waiver to pay in-state tuition.

Anyone know how much it has paid in the past?

                                                            I think they will cover that at MS0 day (it's in the itinerary) and if you don't go they will send you all the information they hand out!

                                                              Does anyone know anything about the summer research starting June 1st that is offered to incoming students. I believe that there are guarunteed opportunities for all incoming students. I am interested, but don't know how it is set up and how much it pays. Anyone know how much it has paid in the past?


                                                              Okay, nevermind I found it. In case anyone else is interested you get paid $3000 for 10 weeks (-1 week for vacation). There is more information below:

It is actually turning out to be a much harder choice than I htought it would be, UTSW really does just rock!

I also heard the Baylor matches any scholarship money, so the UTSW scholarship would also transfer to Baylor if you get in there.

I would choose UTSW over Haaaaarvard/hopkins/upenn/baylor any day.
