Some schools let you know what number you are on their waitlist...but if you don't know what number than it's so hard to tell because if you are near top then you are for sure in but near bottom than probably not..hope this helps..maybe call the school to ask?
I spooke to both of the schools taht I am alternate/wailisted at and this is what I was told.
MWU: there is no numbering system. An alternate/waitlist is comprised after each acceptance notification goes out (there are 3 total and now there are 2 left). Once the list of alternate/waitlisted is made then they review each applicant again to select spots for openings that may become available. But again NO number is assigned.
ASDOH: there is noofficial alternate/waitlist. All applicants that did not get rejected are still being considered until the first day of school. That is all I was told.
Good luck to all and may a butt load of people bail on dental school this year.
So ASDOH told you, you were waitlisted/alternate?
