    I just got waitlisted at the school of my choice. I am actually kind of shocked because I did everything that I could to put my best foot forward. I visited with the admissions staff on two occasions, I had a few doctors pulling for me, and lastly I had a few students backing me also. What should I do? Should I call and ask what my chances are of being taken off the waitlist and why I was placed there in the first place? And should I put some pressure on the school by telling them that I should be hearing from another school that I just recently interviewd at.
    Please help!!

    Poet,

    The school said two weeks before I would receive any type of reply and wouldn't you know it the letter came two weeks to the day, however, it was the dreaded waitlist letter!!!!

    This was my first medical school interview and my first waitlist. Hopefully, I won't be getting another waitlist letter from my other interview, fingers crossed!!!
