    I applied in October and I am waiting to hear back from them. Really nervous actually, that I might not even get an interview.
    So has anyone that applied to Rush receive an email about an interview or has gotten accepted?

    Thanks!

    I submitted by application on October 15. I received an invitation to interview on November 17. I just had my interview but they said all the admissions decisions will be released at the same time in late january/early february.

    For financial reasons I will probably choose UIC instead, but if Rush offers me scholarship $$ to make the cost more similar then I might still go there.

    They must have accepted you both early because you have high stats! I heard the same, that they would be accepting people first week of February. I haven't heard anything yet but hopefully that doesn't mean I got rejected :/

    I just found out I was wait-listed at Rush. A little bummed since I haven't heard back from any other schools yet. Hopefully, it'll be better news! Anyone else wait-listed for Rush?

    -3.62 overall gpa (can't remember my pre-req gpa)
    -about 80th percentile on GRE (new format)
    -240 observation hours with OT and Speech-Path
    -have worked as an instructor and group home manager for folks with autism for 3.5 years.

    I was also waitlisted at Rush but I didn't accept because I was admitted to Ohio State and will be attending there. They told me in my interview that they typically go 10 deep on the waitlist, so don't give up hope! Good luck!

    Thanks for the info, hlt0407. It put my mind at ease a little. 10 on the waitlist isn't too bad!

    I actually applied to Rush with the thoughts that they wouldn't even send more than a rejection e-mail because I applied on the 15 of December- their absolute cut off date. However, I received an invitation to interview in the last week of December and actually interviewed with their very last group. A week later (about the third week of January) I received an acceptance e-mail, to my total surprise. It just goes to show that you should always try and apply somewhere even if it is nearing or after the cut off date. I actually think it can even work in your favor sometimes because if I had applied early they might have not accepted me because they thought there might be better coming. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear, it is truly a nerve-wracking experience.

    Did you know what number you were on the waitlist before you were accepted?

    I had asked them what number I was, and they told me it wasn't numbered.

    They called and sent an e-mail to notify me that I was accepted.

    I spoke to someone who is currently attending the program and they said that 29 people accepted and that it was announced the program might pull 5 more people off the waitlist. From what I recall at the interview they told us that they are only going to accept 30 people this year. So with the one person who confirmed on this form that they were accepted off the waitlist, it sounds like they are full. :( I guess we can only continue to wait and stay optimistic.
