    Nothing yet NUgirl but your right the meeting about Hold people was yesterday, so I guess that we should hear about it today maybe as late as tomorrow. Do you know how many people are getting off of the Hold list.

    I just called and she said that they are still meeting for about the next week about people on the HOLD list. Wed was NOT the last day. There is still hope, however small it is.

    Hi, I just called the office too, and of course....the usual "youre still on hold." And then I said that wasnt the last meeting for hold people Wed. And she said no it's not. So there is still hope!!!!! I dont think next week is necessarily the last week either.

    Youre welcome. :)

    The secratary didn't make it clear whether this coming up week would be the last week either. the last time I called, she said that last week was the last week for hold people. And on Fri she said that it wasn't. She also didn't say that this week is the last week either. So I don't know what's the deal anymore.

    When does Rush stop interviewing? Cause if it's in Mid May, I assume next week would be the last week for holds, but Im just guessing on that one. I hope that we hear soon though!!! The wait is so frustrating! I just want to hear from them, with ANY kind of news.

    Hello guys, I was on the hold list uptil February, I got off the hold list and interviewed in March, and now I've recently been waitlisted. I love Rush and I hope it works out. For any of you fellow Holds/waitlist, the committee plans to interview uptil the 2nd week of May. Also, my friend who was on Hold received a phone call to interview and went the next day (last week). The wait list for post interviewers will be ranked May 15. Hopefully I'm in the top quartile. Anyways, good luck to you all

    Well, since May 8th is the last day of interviews, and its May 1st today, then this week would have to be the last day to be considered for an interview. But I'm not optimistic anymore about being pulled off hold. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    Hey NU Girl,
    You never know, especially this year. I've heard of many school having tenative deadlines and as the deadline get closer, it sometimes gets extended or pushed back. Like I said in my earlier post. They were hoping to be done by May 8, but it's not definite that they will be.

    calcium boy. I'm glad to see that you have hope. Rush is great but I've given up hope.

    I'll be going to another great school though - UIC.
    my stats are 3.31 and 30 - 12/9/9 mcat

    Hey does anyone have any new info on Rush? I'm on the pre-interview hold list also and just sent out two more letters of rec and a letter of interest yesterday. Don't know if it's too late. Hope that it isn't... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    thx :D

    theres only one school left that im waiting for pre-interview. MCPHU. i interviewed at UIC and meharry and am waitlisted at meharry. UIC has me on hold or something for re-review in mid-may. i also interviewed MD/PhD at UIC so i was expecting to get a rush interview. just goes to show nothing is concrete in MD admissions. i just feel like this is an indicator that i will be rejected at UIC too. :( from what ive heard its easier to get in rush MD than UIC MD. if rush rejected me, what does that say about UIC? its not very good at all :( oh well. i might have to apply for 2003, for a 3rd time. good luck to everyone else :)

    Ughh, where is my letter? Everyone seems to have heard except for me, and I know that I am rejected. I just want to hear SOMETHING, anything at this point. I want to know that I am rejected without having to wait anymore and I want to be able to move on with the other schools and forget about Rush. Now I really wish that I had called on Fri. Sorry, had to vent a little. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    keep your chin up...
