    Has anyone here applied to this program? Do you know what are the significant factors that they take into consideration for acceptance? Any info would be appreciated.

    The brochure says the recipients will be notified in march, does anyone from past years know if its early mid or late march?

    I'm wondering the same thing. I sent them an email, but never heard back. Anybody try calling?

    How about the method of notification, email or snail mail?

    I tried calling them, but it goes straight to their voicemail - Let us know if they responded to your email - Thanks

    I think I was notified by the end of the first week in March or maybe early second week. The notification is by snail mail and some people said they also received a call. I did not receive a call though. Hope that helps.

    As I recall I emailed to ask as I was going out of town and was emailed back around March 15th or so. I received an overnight FedEx package 2 days later with the official letter and everything.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Did you hear via snail mail, overnight mail, email? Nothing in my email inbox yet today... time to wait for the mail/FedEx/etc.

    Good luck.

    When somebody knows if it is US Postal Mail or FedEx mail, will you please post, so I will know if I should be checking with the post office or FedEx (my mail is kind of crazy). thanks!

    Has anyone heard from the research training fellowship for med students?

    This does not include Cloister. It is a separate program.

    I believe they do send out by fedex, but do not know. Anyone heard for sure?

    Got a rejection letter today via regular US mail. Postmarked 3/15. I'm in the Western U.S. Oh well. Good luck if you haven't heard anything yet.

    Curious if anyone got into multiple programs and is turning Cloister down for one reason or another?

    Yup, fedex overnight, received today (supposedly a delivery attempt made on Friday, but I didn't see the doortag). Good luck!
