    Has anyone been wait listed from the January '09 class yet?

    Advertisements



    I had my interview last Friday. I thought it went well.

    I know I should be hearing back from them soon but I'm just curious is the January '09 class is already full...?

    As far as I know, they don't 'wait list' students... I think they'll just offer you admission into another semester. Your best chance of obtaining admission into the semester you desire is to apply early. If you're applying for January '09 admission... you're cutting it close, but I think you should be okay... It takes about 4 weeks to hear back from admissions.

    Good luck!

    Right.

    I was referring to Ross' definition of "wait listed." I was just wondering.

    That's a cruel, cruel game they play. They always state 2-6 weeks after the interview, but I've heard anywhere from a couple of days, 1 week, 2 weeks, to as long as 5 weeks. On top of that, before I left, she specifically said that even though it usually takes 2-6 weeks for a response, in my case since I was applying for the January 09 class, they would speed up the process.

    (I just needed to vent. It's been a long time getting to where I am now. I hate the waiting game.)

    I had my interview on Monday in Denver and specifically asked if the January class was full. I applied for the May class, but she said it was possible, if accepted, that I could bump it up to January because the class was not full.

    hi medic....I was told by email from my West Coast Admissions rep, L I will be deferred to the May class 2009.

    The January 2009 class is FULL. If you applied late like me, then you will be deferred to the May class...which i heard doesn't matter in the long run when prepping for USMLE....another story for another day.
