I think it is pretty much confirmed that the decisions will be sent out this Friday. However, there are claims on SDN floating around that the status page will also indicate a decision that day. Does anyone have a source for this info. That'd be dandy! Thanks.

(I, and I'm sure others, don't want to compulsively check the status page that day all for naught.)

there seemed to be a consensus from people like "Prowler" that last year the "mail date" was the same as the "status page change" date...and then people got their letters a few days later.

I called in earlier this week and they said they probably won't be sending it this Friday. Pamela said they will be made "late February" so we'll get them early March. This probably means they'll send them NEXT Friday and not this Friday.:(

hmm ... well, their last interview day was yesterday, i believe. i guess it makes sense they need more time to get everything together.

oddly enough, though, their applicant status check web page is down this morning.

what a burn. and for awhile, it really seemed like feb. 23 was christened as the official decision day. so the waiting continues...

Yeah, I guess they had to schedule an extra interview day on this past Wed because a lot of people couldn't make it to their scheduled day last week becuase of the big storm in the Northeast. So that put them behind a bit with getting the decisions out.

:luck: guys!

Oh, living in California, I completely forgot about how that stinky storm would affect interviews.
Hope everyone got to their interviews safely and didn't have to sleep too long in random airports.

Yeah, that would be horrible. Our 'storm' out here in southern California consisted of some rain. Makes you forget about what is going on everywhere else. I can't wait to hear from NW!

Hope everyone had a blast at NW. Talked to Pamela today, she said that they'd be mailing out acceptances within 48 hours of our conversation. (That means by 5 Eastern on Wednesday for those of you playing along at home.) Wish you all the best, and I hope we're all feeling :cool: come Thursday (or whenever your mail arrives, chumps.)

just checked mine. no change as of yet. i heard about previous years' applicants using status page changes as a gauge of their impending decisions, but i don't want to create a fervor over some hearsay. at this point, who's to say that a change in the page doesn't signify a good thing, junqu?

yipes.

uummm...because any other conclusion wouldn't be automatically jumping to the worst case, most negative scenario-Duh

haha, you're absolutely right. i'm sure i'd think the same if i were in your shoes. we wouldn't be premeds if we didn't assume the worst, i guess. well, here's hoping your message is a precursor to good news, bro.

and good luck to all that are waiting.

couldn't stand it anymore...I called in. They said all the decisions are made. Letters sent out today hopefully. Maybe tomorrow or the next day though.

wouldn't budge on what the status page change meant.

the worst part is knowing it is mailed and then frequently checking your mailbox a couple of days later until the letter is received.


EXACTLY. My hand is tired of turning that key in my mailbox only to open it up and see nothing. I just can't deal... I have a midterm tomorrow that I'm trying to study for... cept I keep checking my status page, as if 2 minutes will make a difference. Knowing that all decisions are already made makes me kind of queasy, I'm not gonna lie. I just want to know already... it's my #1. I mean, I already blocked out April 23-25 on my calendar for second look weekend. How sad would it be if I don't get accepted =(
