majik, I'm still hoping against hope for an in-state interview from CU! They've been one big black hole of non-communication about most EVERYTHING.

One of my professors once told me I was swimming in a cesspool of mediocrity. I too took it in the best possible way.

It gets better - I guess on one of my LORs, someone wrote I am "a woman of unusual candor". Hmmm... could be good or bad, I s'pose! But the schools I've interviewed at all said I shouldn't lose that particular trait.

A select few find out soon after their interview. The vast majority, however, wait in limbo until March.

The way I understood it from my interview is that they let a few know at the end of every month, the rest in march.

So...... Not to toot my own horn, but I guess I'm one of those "select few", cause I just got an email inviting me to be part of Colorado's class of 2010! I'm still kind of in shock, it's my first acceptance. Anyway, emails went out at 12:01 mountain time today (12/1). Hope some of you will be in the class with me. Still can't believe I'm going to med school.

Now Shy, we have to be very happy for these acceptances. We have to look at it as that now they will finally be able to get around to asking us for interviews.

Really, great job you guys. You must have been the creme de la creme!

I'm the guy from UCLA. My parents said they would co-sign on a loan with me. So I guess thats what I'll be doing if I end up at UC. Which one were you?

I was just looking at the financial aid handout, and I think we can get all $85,000. It says we can't get more than the cost of tuition and a set annual living expense, whether that tuition is in or out-of state.

gd, you're right. My first reaction was to wave in the direction of CU... but with only one finger.

Congrats to all accepted! I would :love: :love: to go to my state school CU. gd, here's hoping they get to us "average in-state" folks soon.

If you go over the federal Stafford loan limit (about $39,000), you must get private loans to cover the balance. All the out of staters have massive loans, massive parental help, or massive online gambling habits.

Look for him. He's short, dirty blonde hair parted to the side and kind of spikes up at the part. He has rimless glasses. Same stats as me. I guess he must just have the "it" factor while I apparently have the "sh-t" factor. You probably saw that coming.

gdbaby: Sometimes there is a fine line between being the sh-t and being a sh-t. Perhaps someone mistyped this in one of your LORs, which is why you haven’t heard yet from UCHSC. ;)

Well that would be a great birthday present. Gdbaby would not be very happy. That's right, this whole process has gotten so overwhelming thatI am referring to myself in the third person! Me and Bob Dole!

I asked Dr. Sondheimer about this when I interviewed, and he said he doesn't send out any rejections until March.

On a plus note for you, he also says that he reads each and every application from Colorado state residents, so hopefully he'll get you an invite soon. ;)

I just received an acceptance from CU! I feel blessed beyond measure! After three post-baccalaureate years of going to school and working 2 jobs with 3 small children, it has finally paid off. Thank you God! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Still waiting for my interview invite. Still. Sean, call me. I can drive over the divide and be there in 3.5 hours. 3 hours if there aren't many cops around and the roads are clear. I would GLADLY drive over there at 4am for an 8am interview... and then drive back that night. I'd even bring coffee. PLEASE send me an interview invite for this waiting in-stater!!!!!!!!
