    I completed my secondary on 9/26. Changed to 'under review' on 12/18. No changes since then. Anybody else in a similar situation?

    Thanks. Have they sent out an email/mail with details about this yet? I must have missed it.

    No email from what I know - the admissions office had just mentioned it to me when I got the acceptance call.

    Does anyone have the "pending further review status" listed below?

    "Your file is complete and pending further review by our Committee on Admissions."

    What should I make of this and did anyone have this before getting a II?

    Most schools seems to have an entire weekend planned.
    Does anyone know if Loyola is just a second look day?

    I know last year our class (M1's) got in contact with a local bar to hold a social after the second look day. I don't know what the school has planned but this was a really cool event and gave the people a chance to meet each other outside school.

    on the subject of second look day - got a message that you can bring three guests along. Is that something most people do?

    I'm sure my dad will want to come along, but that's likely it for me. I can imagine students who are already married will probably bring their spouse and/or children. Should be a fun time :D

    yes.. like the first day of undergrad when you are moving in to a dorm, parents in tow, trying to look cool and like you belong. You try hard to pretend that the people who are asking which drawer you'd like your underwear in are actually not people you've ever met... even though you secretly are terrified they might abandon you...

    Rest assured - lots of people brought significant others and/or parents. But you wouldn't look like a pariah if you go it alone, either, as I'd say at least a third were flyin' solo.

    I got excited when I got a call today from an area code in Chicago. I answered and heard, "Hello. Do you want to be involved in a recent medical lawsuit?" Tricky bastards!

    haha okay I deserved that. I meant post-interview decisions. I'm literally panicking over here. Is the general time range from like 6-8 cst to receive a call (if you've been accepted)?

    I'm waiting, too. Interviewed 1/7, was told next Adcom meeting was today (I think they usually end around 6:00pm). I'm a little nervous since it's past 8:00 Chicago time.

    well i've completely taken over this thread (haha) but this will be my last post. For those reading who maybe have been reviewed last night, who maybe don't post, I emailed the admissions committee and they did indeed meet last night. So apparently I'm just waiting for my waitlist or rejection letter.... thoroughly depressed...

    I feel your pain! I don't even have an interview here yet, but not rejected (yet). It's getting harder and harder to stay positive. I'm sure we will become doctors, and that's all that really matters anyway. Keep your chin up.
