    I'm hoping you guys have heard good news!

    Out of curiosity, what is the best way to get from the airport to campus? rent a car? taxi? is there a bus/shuttle?

    Also, there was the option to get housing through the admissions office, do we know when we would hear about this? At what point should we make alternative plans for housing?

    If we are renting cars/hotel rooms...anyone interested in splitting? I'm going to be getting in Sunday late afternoon and leaving Tuesday morning

    I'm from winston-salem and I don't think there is a shuttle from Gso so it is probably best to rent a car... if I were coming from Md I would drive...it's about a 5-6 hr drive but it should be cheaper than flying and renting a car.

    I was put on the alternate list :confused:

    Does anyone know if you are on the alternate list for interview if the chances are slim or not?

    Thanks everyone, and Congrats to those with invites!:)

    I'm on the alternate list too, got the letter yesterday. :(

    Not sure of the exact chances either, but there is still hope for an interview. :) - Never know, someone might withdraw their interview spot.

    yea this process has been weird for me. I have called to ask about my status last thursday and the lady said that i would hear on friday and i didnt. I called again this thursday and she said i hear would back on this friday and i didnt. Does this mean that they are unorganized? I think I should be able to know my status either way.

    very excited! I think it's great how welcoming the current post bac students are. Did you get the email about the dinner? And my host has been so nice in their emails! I am feeling some seriously good mojo about this :D

    As for any current/past post bacs lurking around here....any advice for interview day?

    More than a little in love. The opportunity to talk with the current/past post bacs was such a blessing. They answered all of our questions, plus some, and are quite possibly some of the coolest people I have met in a long time.

    North Carolina is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the area around the school is nice. Winston-Salem is definitely a small town, and it has all the positives and negatives associated with it. I love that the hospital is attached to the med school, and that you actually get to go into the anatomy lab as a post bac. You don't get to actually cut anything, but you are definitely there with a real body to learn.

    I also liked how friendly all the admissions staff were, how they really seemed to know a lot about you as an applicant.

    I was also impressed with all of my fellow candidates - you guys are pretty awesome, and I have no idea how they are only going to pick 10 out of the 25 of us.

    Obviously the only solution is for 15 of us to be accepted into med school before mid may and withdraw our applications :smuggrin:

    :luck::xf::luck: until we hear!

    You said it UruKai! The selection committee will definitely have their hands full.

    Wake was awesome and the past and present post bac'ers even awesomer. I was most impressed by how close the post bac'ers were. You got the sense that they were family and that it wasn't every man for themselves. I liked the community feel of Wake. Everyone was friendly, said hi to you, willing to answer questions, and give directions and walk with you to your destination (especially when you are wandering lost in the hospital trying to find the interview room --> that would be me lol).

    Judging by the past and present post bac'ers they selected I think they know exactly what they are looking for cause each one of them were great. So the best of luck to all those who interviewed it was a pleasure meeting you and I hope we hear some good news come mid May.

    lol and for those who made fun of my cheesecake... I never got the chance to eat it smh.

    How do you feel about, SilentSoldier?

    On another note, I can't believe it's only been a little bit more than a week since we interviewed and that we still have to wait at least a month before hearing anything....This is going to be agonizing.:bang:

    Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go to Wake Forest for my interview (plane tickets got crazy expensive) so I had a skype interview back home. It was very nice of them to do that for me and it goes to show at just how supportive the program really is. Kinda bummed I wasn't able to tour, meet other postbacers and the other interviewees but that's just how it went down.

    That's great! Unfortunate that you couldn't come down it would have been cool to meet another sdn'er but you still got the chance to shine so that's great. Good luck and I hope you receive good news!


    Urukai how are you doing??

    Hey guys,

    Former post-bacc and incoming M1 here. Congrats to everyone who was accepted! Don't be too discouraged if you are on the wait-list, my class and the class before had people off the wait-list. So think good thoughts and make sure the admissions staff know how much you want to be in the program. See you guys soon :)!

    Did you just find out yesterday because I was wondering if anyone had heard anything yet and I see that people have, yet I haven't received anything. I wonder if they are letting only a few people know each day..which would suck

    I got my acceptance email yesterday so I'm guessing they're sending them out in a staggered fashion.
