    There might be word after Aug 1st--we have a deadline for immunizations/criminal background check/cpr cert. So, I'm guessing that's when U-M will get a look at the real numbers they have for their incoming class.

    Just found out the 2013 class is only 54 students; the SON decided to go with a more manageable class size since they're implementing the new curriculum this year. Not sure how many total applicants there were.

    Thanks for the update.

    That really makes me mad. They told us 72 would be accepted and then they just take 54! As a waitlist person I feel like if they just would have accepted 72 people (like they said they would) then maybe I would have got in. I understand why they took a smaller class but I think they should have warned us that they might take less then 72 people this year. I just kinda feel like I got screwed

    A friend just declined admission today so who ever is #1 on the list will be getting in before orientation.

    The SON website hasn't been updated in a while, but they definitely told me on various occasions that the new class would be around 50 people. It was especially emphasized at the informational sessions I attended (and was a source of additional anxiety during my application process). I agree with you, it's disappointing, but I don't think they were intentionally keeping that information from anyone.

    I also attended serveral SON Second Career roll out sessions and I heard the number of 72 students....I know that is what their website states as 2010 fast facts, but I did hear in person the 72 headcount. I am happy for those students who got accepted into the 50 headcount for the new 16 month program, but as a waitlisted candidate I am truely dissapointed that they have decided to decrease the amount of accepted students the year that I applied. It is already August so I am assuming that I will not get picked up for Fall 2012...There is always next year!!! Good Luck to all that got accepted!

    The informational session I was at also said they were going to take 72 people. Definitely sucks being a waitlist person this year. I'm super bummed I didn't get in but I have a back up plan so I guess I'm going to move forward on that. Congrats to those who got in.
