    Since I'm a roll here, I don't know how many of you regularly check, but the fabled "Gower" has been providing specific information on how various wait lists work. He knows whether and what kind of additional data to send, when most movement occurs, how much movement occurs, and whether the lists are ranked.
    He only responds to questions, so ask if you want to know about a list that you are sitting on.

    Sometimes gower posts on SDN. He has about 800 something posts, and they are ALWAYS helpful ones. I'm pretty sure he's the same guy as the one on medicalgold. Is he a premed advisor?

    oh, and thanks for the site! :)

    Yea gower is the bomb. Gower doesn't post on here that often anymore, but his/her advice is absolutely sound and he/she is extremely helpful.

    Gower recently revealed that he is, indeed, he. I think he said he's a retired premed advisor, but maybe not cause he seems to still be working someplace. I agree that he is helpful and often a voice of wisdom, but he tends to get testy with anyone who indicates that he/she is even looking at the rankings. I guess his many years of experience have convinced him that they shouldn't be a part of anyone's decision-making process. It all has to do with where you'll be happy and will be most likely to succeed--and the latter is not necessarily at one of the top ten. Some of his former students have apparently found that out the hard way. Anyway, he's worth reading if you have the time.
