Wait List / Re: Southwestern

Question for you guys...are you using that status check thing on the SW website that we checked prior to receiving the waitlisted decision for updates?

Hey Everyone,

Some positive things to think about. I checked this other website (though i'm not sure how accurate this information is -lsn), and there's 28 people on that forum who were actually accepted and withdrew their applications. And there's an additional 28 who were wait listed and withdrew their wait list application as well. And based on the rumor of a couple of hundred on the WL and this info, i think our odds have increased considerably. I'm sure this does little to ease the anxiety, but any crutch we can find at this point is helpful.

Congrats to you Happy2bhere! I haven't heard anything myself.  >:( I'm going crazy over here trying not to think about it. I did indicate on the wait list letter that I was willing to be deferred to the PT program if the FT was full. Maybe you can have an excuse to pester them by calling and letting them know that you'd take a PT program as well if FT would not be available to you. Of course, that is IF you're willing to take that.

I also spoke to some buddies I have out there, and they said that you can transfer to the full time program once if you take the PT program. Good luck to everyone!

BTW, is SW better than TJ in San Diego? They are both T4, but I think the statistic for SW is better...

Yeah, SW is better than TJ to the best of my knowledge. SW was in the 3rd tier according to U.S. News in 2008, but for some reason they've moved down to tier 4. Thomas Jefferson is where I'll be attending this fall unless I hear some good news from SW.

I also saw that statistic where 20 or so got called back out of 300 on the waitlist. I wouldn't read into that as a reliable indicator because it doesn't take into account the number of people who withdraw their names from the waitlist. It could be possible, though highly unlikely, that 275 people took their names off the list.

I'm trying to stay positive here and I'm definitely willing to wait it out and see if I get lucky.

Does anyone know, from previous years, how many people usually get off the waitlist?

Are you really going to wait until August for a response? I think I am...
