I guess MCAT is on the lower side of things, so a rewrite will be in order. Not sure what to feel right now

literally everything else is great! and that's not even a poor mcat score...sorry again...

How certain are you about your references?

TIME STAMP: 2:14 EST

Result: Waitlist

Early or Regular Deadline: Regular
AGPA: Around 88%? I don't remember exactly
MCAT: 509
ECs: Extensive and long-term. I'm a non-trad applicant. MSc completed.
Geography: OOP
Interview: Average. I didn't think it went particularly well... I definitely messed up on a couple of stations; however, I think I excelled at the writing station.

For some reason, I KNEW I would get waitlisted. I just knew. Don't get me wrong, I'm very thankful to still have a chance :)

Congrats to those who were accepted!! To those who were rejected, I'm so sorry... I know how hard it can be. Please don't take it personally and know that a med school acceptance/rejection has little/nothing to do with your character and value as a person.

Nice work!  You're super close.  I think you hit the nail on the head - our culture is crazed about this path, and we all have bought into it being an indicator of our value.  It's not, and it won't make you happier day to day than doing another thing you find very meaningful :)

Never assume, because anything is possible! It is less likely than at other schools though it seems. There were only 23 waitlist offers last year.

I thought about what I would do in case of a waitlist and I think I would plan my life as if I wasn't getting in and then in the chance that I did get an offer would figure it out at that point. I know you can't make an assumption that you've received a rejection (it might not move a lot but it does move!) but I tend to be a "plan for the worst, hope for the best" person

Result: Waitlisted
Geography: OOP

Just posting to mention I will most likely remove myself from WL in favor of another school. The movement for OOP is significant and hope this helps a well-deserving candidate.

Does anyone know how the works in terms of if OOP and IP Waitlisters are separate?

my assumption is that by the time they have the first full list of acceptances, the oop invites are maxed out, and the people on the waitlist as an oop likely have higher scores than waitlisted IP applicants for the most part - so if an oop spot becomes available, then the next person with the highest score is likely another oop.. does that make sense?
