    Have all the waitlist appointments been sent out, or should we expect more throughout the week?

    All appointment decisions from yesterday's wait list board have been released via email (some may have also received phone calls) and decision letters have been updated. These appointees have until Monday to accept or decline, so another board could be held next week, but probably not until after May 15th since that's the deadline for all remaining conditional appointees to be medically qualified or receive medical waivers.

    Just to clarify, you're saying that the class is now full unless people are medically disqualified?

    I'm saying we believe that we've tendered enough appointments to fill the class, not that the class is full. We'd also believed that we had tendered enough appointments to fill the class on April 1st, but vacancies occurred so we tendered some appointments to applicants on the wait list on Monday. If additional vacancies occur in the class due to unexpected declines, medical disqualifications that cannot receive waivers, or other reasons then we'll convene another board to tender additional appointments to applicants on the wait list.

    Objee, can you shed any light as to timing of calls/emails to those on the waitlist for the Scholars Program?

    Our Director of Admissions and CGAS Program Manager are currently at MMI for their graduation, so the earliest a board could be convened would be Friday. It's more likely the board will meet early next week with notifications to follow.

    Any news regarding CGAS waitlisters? When should they be hearing any news?

    Based upon the response from Objee last Wednesday, I would think that calls would be made at some point this week.

    Objee,

    Now that the May 15th deadline for medical waivers has passed, do you anticipate another board being convened for additional wait list appointments?

    Thanks!

    @Objee - Curious about the same question above- do you anticipate any additional wait list appointments?
