Today was the big day, and I was waitlisted. I know I'm not alone in this boat, and we are all probably wondering if there is any hope for us at all. I don't know all the answers, but I figured that it's better to die of anxiety together than to die of anxiety alone.
Feel free to discuss any and all things related to the Mac 2019 interview waitlist.
I'll start by linking a few previous year's waitlist threads: http://forums.premed101.com/topic/93767-number-of-students-on-interview-waitlist/ http://forums.premed101.com/topic/98384-interview-waitlist/ http://forums.premed101.com/topic/57878-waitlist-for-interview/
and by summarizing a bit of the info I gleamed from there:
1. The Mac interview waitlist seems to be about 20-30 people (which apparently had been posted previously but the link was removed).
2. The waitlist DOES move, some other schools/programs give out offers before the Mac interview date, and also sometimes people just can't make it. (Some people went as far as to say waitlisters have as high as a 50% chance of getting an interview)
3. We won't likely hear back until after the deadline to accept the interview offer (which I'm not sure about this year, but is likely early Feb), but we also might hear back as late as the day before the interviews, so keep your phone's on!
Good luck all.
A fellow waitlister.
