I am waitlisted as well. Interviewed 10/7. Does anyone know when we'll know if there's a slot open? I have multiple offers and don't want to have to pay multiple deposits for a "just in case".

From looking at last years posts it seems like you won't find out until after everyone has interviewed, which should be around february

Yeah, they say it is different from a waitlist, but I figured, in all reality, it's just the same as every other program out there.

Hey all! I'm interviewing 10/21 and flying into Charlotte tomorrow morning/renting a car to get to Winston-Salem. Driving back to Charlotte to catch a flight Monday night after the interview. If anyone needs a ride from/to Charlotte, feel free to DM me with your number! Also if anyone will be in Winston-Salem on Sunday before the interview and wants to explore, let me know!

Hi! I went to WF undergrad and will be in the PA class so I am very familiar with Winston. Greensboro (GSO) is closest but often pricier than CLT and RDU. Charlotte and Raleigh Durham airports are around the same distance to campus. There is a the Winston salem Marriott nearby as well as a Fairfield Marriott on Main street. Winston isn’t too big so nothing will be that far. If you feel like spoiling yourself the Kimpton is beautiful and has a bowling alley, basketball courts and lots of other games! As far as an uber I know they usually are somewhere near $100 from CLT and $40-50 ish from Greensboro. Renting a car may be cheaper but I’m not really sure. Make sure to go to the school of medicine on Vine St and not the undergraduate university on Wake Forest Rd! Good luck and if you have questions feel free to message me! 🙂

Hey! I just interviewed.
Flights: I flew into CLT (about 1hr 20 min from Winston-Salem) because it was much cheaper than raleigh-durham and a half hour closer. I didnt look into Greensboro because I figured it'd be more expensive. 

I rented a car from Alamo which was ~ $150, but I rented for two days - maybe post in here and try to coordinate with someone and share a car if they're flying into same airport? 

Hotel: Try calling the Hawthorne Inn & Conference Center - they gave me a student rate of $75 and it was pretty nice and free breakfast! Only a 7 min drive from the interview area. 

Hope this helps!

@emoorefi  @mredwine Thank you both so much! This helped a lot, you have no idea. If either of you have any advice for this "panel interview" and the group activity and have some insight you can give just to help me feel more prepared, I'll take all bits of wisdom! Thanks!

Being waitlisted, I figured it would be a typical waitlist like other programs, but it is as they say. I just received my acceptance call today. But I called in asking how far I was up the list, and they said I was on the top half. Apparently, I was closer to the top than they said.

I was accepted off of the waitlist yesterday.  I am still in shock as this is my dream school!  This is my third time applying so never give up 🙂 I cannot wait to meet all my fellow classmates!

To those who have already been accepted:

I received my acceptance call on Thursday and my formal letter of acceptance on Friday, but I haven’t received any other information or what to do for the next steps. I haven’t put down my deposit yet, but I assumed that they would still send me any necessary forms. Do I need to put down my deposit before I receive any other documents or information on what to expect next? 

Thanks in advance!

You need to put your deposit down. Nothing says accepted like $$$$

I got a call and email today inviting me to the 11/4 interview. Someone must have backed out at the last minute. I submitted my application at the opening of the application season.

I'm going to assume yes, but that is only because they have about 13 interview dates. In all honest, I don't really know. Interview dates reach through February.
