i called on friday, and the lady in the office told me that those decisions wouldn't even be "entered" (whatever that means) for another week and that we probably wouldn't get letters for another week after that. i'm hoping that's just a safety statement, that it will be two weeks at the very longest. i'm still checking the mail box every day...

They sure take their time. Oh well, I guess they know all we can do is wait.

Ylime, since you're so interested in Wake...Will you choose wake over UTH??

Not sure yet. Depends on the financial aid pkg since Wake is over 3 times more than UTH.

So, I was just reading the interview reviews for Wake, and the 2/11 dated poster had stated that when she arrived for the interview, they told him/her that enough acceptances to fill the spots had already been sent out and that she would be placed on the waiting list if they liked him/her. My interview is tomorrow, so I was wondering if any of you who had interviewed in the past couple of weeks had been told the same thing??? If so....thats a real bummer being its my first choice!!!! :mad:

In the waitlist letter, they stated that they accept 50% of the class off the waitlist. So, all is not lost. :)

Ive been accepted and Im now waiting to hear about financial aid. I LOVED Wake. It is by far my first choice, but it is just so expensive. Ive been offered a big scholarship somewhere else, and it will be hard to turn down if wake doesnt come through for me. Does any one know if Wake is good about grants and scholarships. It looks like there are no full scholarships for out of state students, which is discouraging. When are they sending out their decsions on financial aid?

Wake had their latest adcom meeting on 2/23/05. Can someone give them a call to see if there has been any movement on the waitlist? I've already called them twice over the past couple of weeks and don't want to seem annoying. By the way, their last day for interviews is next Friday (03/04/05) so when you talk to them, can you also find out when their next adcom meeting will be? Does anyone know if they rank the waitlist?

I interviewed the 18th of Feb. and was told that our adcom meeting, which is the last, will be held on the 9th of March. Mrs. Tice also said 10-12 available spots were still open for acceptance. However, they did not tell us anything about the waitlist.

I called the school and they said that waitlist movement starts after they finish interviews. So expect it to move around mid march. Also their waitlist is not ranked. All the applicants on the waitlist are reviewed everytime the committee meets. Good Luck !! :luck:

Anyone know if the waitlist is moving at all yet? My boyfriend and I are both on it right now and it's probably our last chance of attending the same med school. I guess like everyone else here I'm hoping for lots of movement! I need to know how soon to start checking my mail neurotically again! Any news?

That's kinda sweet...romantic even. Good luck to the both of you and everyone else. I'm so happy their interview season is over.

I can't wait to stop waiting. I said I would call once a week starting next week. I must say Wake really knows how to treat their applicants. In spite of the waitlist, the whole process was rather pleasant.

I interviewed at Wake today... Ms. Tise did tell us that they still had 10-12 spots open, but one of the student tour guides told us that the class was already full. I interviewed with someone at Rochester yesterday who told me the same thing and she had interviewed a couple weeks ago.

As for financial aid, there are no merit-based scholarships for out-of-staters (someone asked in an earlier post). The financial aid lady did seem to know her stuff so I wouldn't be too worried if you want to go there and you are stressing about $$$.

Does anybody know if they're still sending out interviews there? I sent an e-mail with an unrelated question to the admissions office this week and they told me that I'd be hearing an update about my status "soon." I can only hope that that doesn't imply a rejection sent in the mail.

Their last interview day is this Friday, so I would say that unless you live in NC and they have a last minute cancellation, your chances of getting an interview at this point are slim :(

I called yesterday and Wednesday, March 9th is the last committee meeting. The admissions woman said there are still spots open in the class until the last committee meeting. After that, Dean Nelson pulls people off the offical waitlist as opening become available. Wake is also my first choice and I'm on the alternate list. We'll see...

I called their office today to ask when we could expect decisions from the meeting to be available by phone, and they told me they should have everything processed by late monday. So, I'm going to call then, unless one of you other peeps feels like calling tomorrow or friday and letting me know what they say :laugh:

I was impressed by the curriculum (community experience, small groups) and everyone I met there. It seems like a really supportive environment. They made the application experience pleasant. They were open and willing to answer questions. When other admissions offices were vague and seemed annoyed...WF always remained polite/understanding. Winston-Salem seems like a wonderful place to be for med school. Kudos to the admissions staff! Did I just say kudos? It's funny...the things you would type and never say.

I called Wake today and was told that the information from the 3-9-05 meeting will be put into the system by Wednesday (the 16th) but that we should not expect any real movement on the waitlist until people start dropping out near the end of the month as they get their acceptances from the non-rolling schools.
