    I still can't believe it. I got my big envelope from UMass today and I'm psyched! I guess the third time is a charm!!!!!!!! AHHH! I'm beside myself. (To anyone that cares or is also waiting for UMass, I interviewed on Feb. 26, had a cumulative GPA of 3.70, science GPA 3.57. I took the MCAT 4 times and had a 29Q composite--that's the way UMass uses MCAT scores). Best of luck, everyone!

    Oh My Gosh!!!! That is so awesome. I was tired of being the only UMass acceptee here. I felt bad posting anything more about it when so many were waiting to hear.

    This isn't the end of your UMass mail, btw. I've received something about every week since I've been accepted, fin aids stuff, etc.. It was funny at first I thought every letter I got was going to say "Sorry we made a mistake-- you aren't accepted" but it never happened! When I paid my deposit I even asked the secretaries to confirm that I really got in. I think they thought I was nuts, but they looked it up anyway.

    Anyway congrats. I know how you feel. It's awesome that you got in after so much hard work. I will be your classmate next year! Yay! (Unless I get into Penn which is very doubtful.)

    You better celebrate tonight!

    Didn't you also get into BU and Tufts in the last month? Wow, you are taking down Massachusetts school one by one!!! Congratulations!!! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> Next up is Harvard! :D

    Which one are you going to attend?

    Otter,

    Nah, I didn't get into BU. Actually, I didn't even apply. I did get into Tufts though, so yeah, this has been an AWESOME few weeks. And Harvard...well, I'd probably spontaneously combust if I even stepped on Longwood Ave. soil. LOL.

    I'm almost definitely going to attend UMass! And I'm extrememly excited about it if you couldn't tell...

    I can't wait to get tanked tonight (and don't worry, "already Doctors," I won't put a hole in my liver.

  12. woo hoo! CONGRATULATIONS! that is awesome; i remember when we were both anxiously waiting to hear from schools last application cycle. i'm sorry i won't be seeing you at Tufts, but taking Tom Slavin's advice and going for the in-state tuition at UMass is the best thing anyone can do. good job, you earned it! :)

    ME TOO!!! ME TOO!!! ME TOO!!!
    I just went to the post office and got my envelope. I can't stop crying and I am shaking like a leaf! I can't quite believe it. I guess the third time is a charm!
    Now I have to drive to Connecticut for my Uconn interview. This interview might actually be fun since I no longer think my future is resting on every word that I say.

    Congratulations to all who've been accepted--that rocks!! Hopefully my 9x12 envelope is just hung-up in the mail, heh heh.

    Just a comment...I'm totally impressed, gmendese, that you had such a quick turnaround time since your interview. Maybe they realized you've waited long enough, when clearly you're an excellent candidate. In any case, great news!! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    Gmendese and Bee.

    I am so happy for both of you!!!!!! Bee, you almost brought tears to my eyes when I read your post. So glad to hear that you both will be entering medical school. You have broken the AMA seal at last!

    I'm still waiting - and starting to freak out even more. I interviewed in lat Nov. Do you think the long wait is good or bad? I don't know what to think......

    jrazz,

    I don't think your long wait means anything. I've heard that most people get in in March and April and up to half of the class comes off the wait list in May and the beginning of June. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    Thanks Gary for the well-wishes. You must be so psyched!!! It must be a weird feeling to not have to obsess over the mail anymore. I think my mailman is afraid of me....For his sake I hope I hear soon.

    Thanks everyone! You all are the best! I have almost stopped crying. I still keep pinching myself though because I am afraid that I might be dreaming!

    I am so excited that so many of my future classmates are on here!

    Good luck to all of you who are still waiting. Chin up! It will happen for all of you too!

    Bee :)

    Hey Gary,

    Congrats on your acceptances this year! I knew you could do it! It's so great to hear that at least one of us NYMC waitlister's last year got into his first choice school. You really deserve it!
