    I am waitlisted too. Did Dr. Healy contact any of you to see what you have been doing since your interview at VCU?

    I'm not in at another school - so needless to say, i'd really really like to get in off this waitlist.

    FYI, they have sent out acceptances to the waitlist people. Have any of yall heard yet?

    I'm still waiting....

    If i remember correctly Dr. Healy said that they wouldn't just send out acceptances to the waitlist but rather he'd call first and ask if the person was still waiting and would accept the offer...because there are so few people waitlisted he prefers to do it this way rather than through snail mail b/c that can take quite a while. did you call the school about them sending out the acceptances? i could be totally wrong about what i heard Dr. Healy say.

    That is correct. Dr. Healy called me about a week or so ago to see how things were going since my interview at VCU. I am supposed to be taking biochem over the summer but there is a time conflict with the course because VCU begins class in early July.

    Anyone on the waitlist at VCU heard anything about the D5 program? Does anyone know if you are on the waitlist and not accepted do you qualify for the D5 program?

    All the dentists I know that have come out of VCU are excellent clinicians and super nice people. This combined with how nice Dr. Healy has been makes VCU my 1st choice. I'm sure the schools has some negatives, but I haven't heard about any.

    The D5 program is for anyone - you don't have to be a VA resident. They consider only the people they interview for the program. And I think its just a Dr. Healy decision... hope that helps.

    You guys mean D.5 right? It is for out of state as well as instate if that is the program you are talking about. My interview day there were 5 people there, all out of state (maybe with the exception of 1) and we were told about this program. I don't know when they choose people for it though.

    Any more news on movement of the wait list at VCU? Trying to keep my hopes up but it is getting really close to the wire now and I am getting nervous! :luck:

    how many people generally get off the waitlist and into the class?

    When were you added to the waitlist? I am just trying to figure out how fast it started to move.
