2019-2020 application cycle

Recommended Posts

Called today and confirmed there aren't any other interviews. They also said that they aren't sure if they will have any more....so I guess it's up in the air. Applied in May and this was my top choice so disappointed to say the least.

Thanks @hopefulpa its exactly my situation. It was my top choice too. i just finished my college algebra class for them. They should send denial now. Waiting game should be over now.

Not I. But I was checking last year's forum and people were getting accepted off the waitlist around this time last year. Maybe this upcoming week we'll see more movement.

That’s what I’ve been hoping for as well. The wait is killing me

So happy I got accepted to Midwestern after my interview on 10/4 after being on the alternative list! They called me today and then emailed me as well 🙂 good luck to everyone still waiting! It is a nerve wrecking process and remember candidates get chosen as late as a couple days before orientation! Best of luck!

If we are placed on the alternate list are we supposed to notify them that we are accepting this placement for now? Or do we only have to notify them if we would like to be removed

You only need to notify them if you want to be removed.

For everyone who was placed on the alternative list, did you email them with updates to your application? Or did you hear your acceptances without providing an update?

I just got a call that I have been accepted off the waitlist! I interviewed 10/21 I believe? 
I did recently reach out to Amy and update her with my patient care hours and volunteer hours, but I really don’t know how much of a difference this made. 
The waiting game is so difficult, but don’t lose hope! Good luck to the rest of you on this crazy process, and I’m excited to meet the incoming class in the future!

Has anybody called the admissions office to get an update as to how full the class is/how many people are on the waitlist?

I called Friday and was told all 86 acceptances have been sent out but it’s possible people haven’t responded to them yet. Basically at this point I think the only chance of getting accepted is if someone withdraws or declines

I was accepted off the waitlist last week too! Interviewed 10/21, and if there’s a fb page would someone be able to add me too?
