    AMG/US citizen, west coast community residency program with ties to a good university. 96/99/and step 3 in mid-90s (forgot to write down my score). research is my CV weakness. submitted application on 12/15.

    2 interviews so far
    1 rejection
    still waiting for 20+

    hope that helps :)

    good luck everyone.

    New to the forum, and I'm a california applicant. Waiting for UC Davis, SF, LA and the rest. Looks like it started mid Jan last year, probably earlier in 09. AMG, scores in 90s, few pubs, some research during residency.
    Cheers!

    Don't worry, you are not alone. I have no IV mails so far and the rejections seem to pile up. Is there light at the end of this tunnel?

    There are many programs that have sent out IVs or Rejs to others in the forum. I have heard neither? what does the " on hold status" exactly mean?

    I imagine it can mean one of two things:

    1.They havent got a chance to review your application yet
    2.They like you but prefer others before you and would only consider you as others cancel

    This is pure speculation but what the heck..we're all obessing over this anyway

    @three coins: I am one of those you mentioned w/o IVs nor R

    The wait is killing me....want to hear from a program/any program, but also hoping its not a rejection. I do anticipate many rejections...wish I applied to more programs.

    It seems slow, or is it just me?

    Does seem slow, but if invites/advice from the past are to be believed, mid Jan to mid Feb is the time to hear from the programs. Kinda seems scary that the whole thing boils down to the next 5 months. Exciting though!

    For ppl with interviews- please keep us updated on your credentials and on your reviews of programs on your interview trail.

    Laters, good nite!

    I have noticed others received a rejection from UTSW. Does anyone know what kind of program this is? Specifically, is it ranked in the next tier behind MSK, MD Anderson, etc or is it even lower? Anyone know of its reputation?

    I was told it is a really good program, but not sure what that means.

    Among the rej letters theirs is the most polished. They let you down very smoothly, didn't just push you off the cliff!

    Received an email from MD Anderson about Missing LoR

    Please be advised that our program requires three (3) letters of
    recommendation, as well as a letter from your Residency Program Director. Our ERAS post office box will remain open until January 31, 2011 which allows you ample time for submission. Understand that your application will not be reviewed by the Fellowship Program Director until it is complete. Thank you for your attention to this matter and for your interest in our program.

    Anyone else get this email?
