I wonder if there will still be trickle down movement at this point. Seems like people who are already accepted to a school are committed, and the ones who are accepting waitlists don't have acceptances yet.

Some are, some aren't.

@gyngyn are you made aware of acceptances offered by schools before the acceptees themselves are?
Only if the accepting school notifies AMCAS before notifying the applicant (and we have previously interviewed the applicant and made a decision).
I guess the other situation is if the acceptance is at my own school!

Out of nowhere, a boatload of movement at UCLA.
Without sacrificing your privacy and anonymity can you give us a range of what you mean by a boatload. It's really hard to tell at this point what that means? Is a boatload like 5, 10, 15, 20, 25? Obviously you don't know every single acceptance but only the ones you overlap with.

Not with the precision you request.

Only made it on 1 waitlist this year (Loyola Stritch) and it's my top choice The waiting is torture! I wish there was a way to know if there's still hope for me and if my updates are helping.

In Stritch's email letting us know about our placement on the waitlist, they mentioned that they can let us know up until July 30th (the first day of classes) if we are accepted. Is it common to have acceptances coming out that close to the start date from a WL?

One of my friends got off the waitlist the day before orientation at a MD school. She also told me a couple of people were also accepted during orientation, before classes started. So anything can happen!

UCLA is still moving, so is GW.
Thank you so much for this update! Do you have any information on GW and how much movement still exists? I have heard sometimes people hear back as late as the end of July.

All I can say is that new acceptances went out yesterday.

I am confused by your feelings. Which part strikes you as unethical?
I guess I feel like if his/her co-workers don't know about this or wouldn't approve of his information to students because it's unfair to other applicants then it could be unethical for me to even be here reading these posts.
