I just got a notice that I am waitlisted in Meherry.. do you guys know if there is a good chance of getting past it? I guess that all depends on how many people they have waitlisted...

Anyways just thought I'd post it in case someone went thru it last year or what not..

Thanks..

I honestly can't tell you how good your chances are. But I was waitlisted before being accepted earlier this month.

I got the same email. :( And I really really like that school. I interviewed on Jan. 29th. I guess the positivity in this is that there is still a fighting chance.
Now begins the praying and fasting...............

From what i can tell Meharrys waitlist moves alot. Keep in mind their school starts in JUNE! Which is why i withdrew my acceptance, and i think theres gonna be a lot of poeple like me!

Good luck, Talk to them alot, im pretty sure their waitlist isn't ranked. I got my interview by telling them i wanted to interview and they said ok, so there pretty loose on their SOP's.

I interviewed Nov 10, waitlisted Dec 1 and accepted Feb 2.

And guys, please disregard the May 15th mentioned in the email. That was written in the waitlist email I received too. As of now, their class is probably filled, however, as more and more accepted applicants withdraw, the truth of the matter is that you can be accepted anytime before May.

If you're waitlisted, it'll be a good idea to send Mr. Mosley an email letting him know of your interest in attending. And it'll be a great idea to send in your fall or spring transcripts as soon as it is ready (if your school is on a quarter system). Unfortunately, in the waitlist game, sometimes, the wheel that squeaks the loudest gets the grease...um...gets the acceptance, I guess I should say. :D

Good luck to those of you waiting! :luck:

no shame in osteopathic schools. you can still get to the same place as allopathic in the end. i know plenty of osteopathic surgeons, radiologists and dermatologists. most are in the midwest. you go out to the midwest you'd have trouble finding an MD. it's just more prevelant than on the east coast.

Really? Newfoundland... what are your stats if you don't mind? I never thought of applying out of province because for some reason I thought they don't take many....

my stats are not very sexy but here they are. i got a 26 on the mcats, have a 3.6 cum gpa, but i have a lot of experience. i've been published, i worked as a nurse aid for 3 years, and i'm currently doing research at the national institutes of health.

when i went for my interview, there was only one other american and a lot of out of province people. some were applying for their 3rd time... 3 years of waiting! that's gotta be tough

i bought a book that highlighted all of the stats for med schools. you know the ones that give average mcat scores, ranges, percentage of matriculation breakdowns on race, gender etc....

for newfoundland the avg. mcat score was a 27, so i'm not sure where you got 32 from. i got an interview with a 26 and i thought all went well, so we'll see what happens. i won't know until the end of march because that's when they tell everyone.

I was waitlisted there 2 years ago...lets just say I didn't get my rejection letter until the middle of Oct or Nov of that year. Maybe I was the lucky one who slipped through the gaping holes in their admissions office. But it all works out in the long run if u really work hard. I like Louisville much better :D
