    Wow, this is kind of sad because I just searched for posts I had posted last year - and on 12/1/07 I ALSO had heard absolutely nothing from the 10 schools I applied to. Since then I retook the DAT and improved my app quite a bit, but still have not heard a word from schools (except a Harvard rejection, which hardly counts, I don't know what I was thinking applying there.) I have received/under review for a few schools on AADSAS, and have been in touch with every school who has confirmed they have everything and I am "under review." No interviews or rejections yet. Am I just totally borderline that I have to wait for rejections in March?? I have a 3.5 / 18 DAT, non-traditional re-applicant from NY.

    Anyone else having similar experiences? I've been in limbo for soo long, it's awful :(

    Congrats to everyone who received good news this week! Hope to see some of you next fall, or, as a patient some day at the rate I'm going! ;)

    I submitted my Application on July 10th to 13 schools and I have only officially heard back from UNLV and unofficially from Arizona both of which rejected me, as i sent the secondary apps in late. But I heard back from them at the end of October and I haven't heard back from anyone else since then. What do you think that means for my application status?

    you have good GPA. mediocre DAT. if the rest of your app is strong I'm sure you'll get some interviews once the schools sort through their Dec 1st crowds.

    hang in there.
