    Well, I heard from them, but I'm considerably behind you in this whole process. All they wanted was my LOR's and a pic. Which made me happy enough. :)

    To take your mind off your troubles (and waitlists aren't that bad, are they? Could have been a rejection like Case Western recently sent me :( ), could you let me know how your New York trip went transportation-wise? I'm a little worried about getting around, being the country bumpkin from Alaska that I am. ;) And how did you convince schools to let you coordinate your interviews? I've got an interview at Columbia coming up and Mount Sinai and Albany are being rather blase about getting back to me about coordinating. Did you speak to someone besides whoever happened to answer the phones? :)

    New York was great...easy to get around...just buses and subways....buy a week long pass or something. I only had to change one interview date to fit into my schedule that week. Basically they all kind of just happened to fit in perfectly and a couple let me choose the dates. Since i did most of it about 2 months ago all the dates were open so I had my choice of dates. Don't worry...new york isn't that bad. The people were really helpful in the subway station at Penn station even though I had no clue where I was going and ended up in madison square garden rather than the subway station...I didn't meet one crabby new yorker...guess they aren't as crabby as they used to be...

    I interviewed Oct. 12 (same day I believe as you, Scoob) and got an email notification of acceptance this afternoon. Hope you too get the good news soon.

    Hey Scoob -- I got your private message. I tried to reply, but your mailbox is full. Email me at [email protected] if you'd like.

    I think Scooby meant that he is already "****faced" ;) Not accepted - at least not yet...

    Hey scooby,

    Did you look at the online status check? i thought that it changes once a notification changes.

    How long did the admissions office say it would take for notification? I interviewed the week after you, and I too have not heard a thing.

    Has anybody who interviewed on the 19th heard anything. thanks.

    Scoob-
    I got waitlisted at UMich and was informed via snail-mail. However, you can also check on the online status check...I actually found out there first and then got the letter in the mail.
    I hope you get in!
    If not, I guess we'll hang out on the waitlist together. When I interviewed, the students couldn't stop talking about how many people get in off the waitlist and how good the chances are, so I'm still hopeful!

    scooby:

    one of the first times we are in the same position. I too got the waitlist at UMich, I just found out today (interviewed 10/19). They make it sound like such an honor to be on the waitlist. That is kind of annoying. And much like you were, I am ****faced trying to swallow this one. yeah, I know, people get pulled off the waitlist and yeah the waitlist isn't bad. My biggest worry is that maybe adcoms or interviewers are getting a bad impression of me and this could be the start of many waitlists to come. I think I did well and was even told by one of my interviewers that he was giving me high marks and recommending me for admission. I wonder if I should start to change my interview strategy or just stick to it and see what happens. Well, just had to vent. This sucks.
