Any predictions so far?
Well, I've only been waitlist at U of M. I'm #16 going in, but I based a lot of calculations off of stuff found on SDN. Breaking it down I have developed the following scenarios for the first wave of movement after the fifteenth.
Best case based on forum acceptances: 25% decline, move up 13 spots (#3)
Last year's statistics: 14% decline, move up 8 spots (#8)
Best worst case scenario: 11% decline, move 6 spots (#10)
Worst case scenario: 5% decline, move up 3 spots (#13)
BEST BESTEST case scenario: 30% decline, move up 16 spots (accepted!)
Again not super accurate, but stats make me feel better.
.... Sorry I went a little bit stalker mode...

Hahahaha don't worry it's absolutely understandable considering the circumstances! #16 is still a great spot so I'm sure it'll be the best of the scenarios!

I'm in the second quartile OOS for mississippi. I applied to 9 schools this year and this was the only one i got an interview at. Last year I only applied to my instate and got rejected so I decide to wise up this year. I hate the feeling that I wasted a lot of money. I have an abndance of experience I asked my interviewers what I could do to improve my application and they literally said only my GPA which i have done everything I can including taking a whole extra year of undergrad science courses. I guess my next step is to try a masters program. Trying not to be too hopeful about the waitlist right now because that will just be a hard hit if I am. Glad to know Im not alone in this struggle! They start making calls tomorrow but I know it could still be a couple weeks until I hear.

hang in there! I'm in a similar situation so I know how ya feel. My GPA is also not the greatest but you got an interview so they definitely saw what makes you unique to the applicant pool!!

Don’t worry too much yet! Obviously any waitlist spot should be viewed as something other than acceptance in terms of preparing to reapply so that there’s no time wasted just in case. However, second quartile at Mississippi State is historically a good spot to be in. It’s not over til it’s over!

Just in case anyone is curious! I’m attending CSU in the fall but I am waitlisted at Oregon state. I just emailed out of sure curiosity) and she said they only rank the top 20 candidates and currently all of the non-resident seats are filled so there will only be movement if people pull out of their acceptance and forfeit their deposit! So likely not much movement is predicted!

Not much! I spoke to my advisor right when I applied and she said there is usually quite a bit of movement on the out of state waitlist! I also had a friend get pulled off the In state waitlist a few days ago so there has been movement (although that was the instate waitlist so may be different)

That’s good to know! It’s killing me, every buzz from my phone and I have a mini heart attack. Haha, congrats on CSU by the way.

Jumped from #65 to #47 on UMN's waitlist, but anxiously awaiting ANY news from Illinois...Their unranked waitlist is driving me bonkers.
Anyone else received any updates?

Hi there! Is anyone waiting on Wisconsin’s waitlist? Does anyone know when they start calling people? I’m pretty far down their list so just wondering if the movement is due to people being called off or people taking themselves off the waitlist. Thank you!

Based on previous years, it seems like next week! I was originally #151 OOS and now from the email am #135, so I’ll be waiting with you too! Good luck! Are you waiting to hear back from any other schools?

It’s hard not to become pessimistic in this process. I told my non vet friends and family that there was no chance again this cycle and I thought they were being too optimistic, especially when they don’t understand how grueling it is. But sometimes they see your best qualities that you forget :) I know this process and I think you’re going to get in too!
Thanks so much!!! :) Here's hoping!

It’s April 15th! How’d you do?
Still at my wits' end, still waiting on Western! :) They said we might not hear until May since it's literally only the one Dean selecting the class (instead of a whole admissions committee). Definitely feelin' frazzled. Anyway, thanks for asking! How are you doing with acceptances, waitlists, and whatnot?

Oooh thank you!! Good luck to you too! I called today and I’ve moved somewhat further down the list so your number must have moved too! :)

I’m also waiting to hear back from Western.

Also do you know if they call and if we don’t pick up, will they move onto the next person or will they email us and give us time?

The schools understand that people have real lives outside of the application cycle and that people won't always be able to answer their phone. If a school calls and you don't pick up, they'll leave a message for you to call back. Most wait list positions are given at least 24 hours to decide.

I was #9 and I got the call about 15 minutes ago and I have a friend further down on the first quartile who hasn't been called. They're giving us until Thursday to answer. Hope that helps!

Honestly, from what I've heard, I don't expect to hear back any time before May, if not June. Maybe this year will be different. I hope.
