What does it mean if I get waitlisted? What are my chances of getting in if I am #48 on the waitlist?

Hi Anjali, #48 on the waitlist this early in the application cycle means that you probably have a pretty good chance of admission before August of 2021. Students will continue to move off of the waitlist up until the first day of school. Spaces become available at DeBakey when admitted students decide not to attend or or disqualified. For example, they might fail to meet the application criteria, decide they want to go somewhere besides DeBakey including a private school, or maybe their family moves out of Houston. A lot can happen over the next 8 months; keep your fingers crossed!
