    Hey choker - one fello SDNer got respnse like overnighted to him/her I believe. I'm still waiting...I had my interview on 10/26. Of the 6 schools I've went to, I was extremely impressed with the facilities at Stony Brook! It's awesome there, and of course you can't beat the tuition.

    that was me...interview 10/23, accepted 10/26 it's based on your priority score, which they give you after your interview. the guy told me it could be a couple weeks or months, and it was a couple days. so chin up, just cause you don't hear right away doesn't mean you're not in.

    le me know if i can answer any specific ?'s

    what's priority score based on? how good a candidate you are? or is it how early you completed your app? do they tell you said priority score?

    your priority score is based on your file review (grades, MCAT, recs, etc) and the rating your interviewer gives you. it has nothing to do with how early you got your application in. of course, they don't tell you the score. it would be immaterial even if they did, because it's impossible to tell how you rate with regards to everyone else. it's all relative depending on what you're up against. do your best, and be yourself...stony brook is looking specifically for people who have good numbers but ALSO have things that distinguish them from all the others out there....so if you have something unique, make sure to emphasize it.
