    I know there are several people here who are on waitlists and some of us who are in but waitlisted at a school we like better. This thread is to try to sort out who is making positions available by passing on an acceptance. So if you are turning something down please speak up. Thanks

    hey ousooner
    heard anything from UHS yet? i think i interviewed with you in May. It sounds like you are on quite a few waitlists...good luck! I know how bad it sucks to hold your breath and pray before looking at the mail everyday!

    Anyone out there know how many applicants are on the "high alternative" wait list? I received the same call last Wednesday night with the "high alternate" info. How many of us are out there?

    CJT,
    i'm on their alternate list, but they will not draw from that list this year. the real alternates for this year are those who were excepted for "next" year's class (fall 2k3). my top choice (kirksville) seems promising. just keeping my fingers crossed.

    Good luck OUsooner. Wish to see you at K'ville in Fall. :) I will give up my seat at DMU...probably not much of help for you, but it will be for someone else.....

    OUsooner, That's awesome that Kirksville sounds promising. While this might not matter much anymore, I think there might be a chance that UHS will go to the alternate list cause they've already gone through 11 of the 25 or so people in the waitlist/accept category. Anyhow... Best of luck again!

    If anyone wants it, my seat is now open at CCOM. Could I start the bid on E-Bay?

    Thanks Treybird. I'm willing to bid, but I'd prefer to swap you straight up for a spot at TUCOM. Did you give up your spot on the alternate list or an actual seat? Were you fully deposited?

    I was an alternate at AZCOM, I just got an acceptance phone call yesterday, which I declined, so AZCOM has an open position. Treybird, why not CCOM?

    CJT- Fellow CU grad/Boulder! Good to see some others in Boulder heading the DO route. Are there any DO's youve shadowed in Boulder? At People's Clinic maybe? Good luck, congrats on UHS. Im headed to CCOM.

    CJT, I still haven't gotten the call yet. However when I called them last week they told me to get my matricuation stuff ready. Hopefully I'm not reading into it, but it sounded like I should expect to get off the waitlist soon. I just wish it could be this week cause I'm going to be heading off to Spain this Saturday for a month. So it would have been nice to have this stuff taken care off before I leave, but whatever. I'm currently on three waitlists and am holding an acceptance at LECOM. So, as you could probably gather already, I'd choose UHS over Erie.

    OUSOONER, congratulations! im glad you can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

    jasjaz..i would definately count on uhs if you havent heard from them yet. when i wrote them an email asking about the waitlist before i got accepted they said they are expecting to take almost everyone off the list of those who were accepted for the following year/waitlisted for this year. ill keep my fingers crossed for you and have a great time in spain!

    conmantlc- congrats on ccom. <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> it is great to hear that the DO route is gaining some popularity around here..especially since MD is pretty much shoved down our throats out here b/c of CU health sciences. i havent shadowed anyone out here (i did all my shadowing in florida) but i work with a few of them at BCH. did you do some work at the peoples clinic?

    CJT- I work at Community Medical Center in Lafayette. I work with 4 DO's, two of which went to CCOM. I worked at BCH ER this summer, but didn't really work with many DO's. When I tell people im going to med school, they say, " Oh are you going to CU health sciences?", and then "why not?". What do you think of general public knowledge of DO's in Boulder? I think its not very well known. Very few people I've talked to know what a DO is. But most of the doctors I work with agree that the DO's are great.

    I just sent a letter today to LECOM releasing my seat. Earlier in the week, I was accepted at OSUCOM. I hope everyone else will hear something positive soon regarding waitlists.

    I gave my seat up at TUCOM not because it's a bad school but I rather stay near home at WesternU/COMP. <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />
