Yeah, I'm starting to get the feeling that no one has gotten a post-interview rejection letter...

For all we really know they could just be sending these further consideration letters out to everyone.

looks like you might be right about that assumption

i asked at my interview and was told they probably interview more than 400 people (they have done over 200 so far), and accept 97 for a class size of 68.

I doubt that anyone who received the rejection letter would want to participate in this poll, so it may not be accurate.

Last year I was in the top group along with many others that never got accepted. I would just take their letter and throw it in the garbage, because that's about what it's worth.

I am bumping up this thread from last year. The original number of votes for this thread are
15 votes for considering
1 vote for no thanks.

I received a letter like that from them. which basically says that they are considering my applications.

Has any 2010 cycle applicant received a letter like that?

I asked, and they told me it's about 10% of those who interviewed which will receive the rejection letter before Dec 1st.

The same thing is still going on this year, though. They will be sending out letters either rejecting you or saying you are still in the applicant pool for the pre-Dec interviewees.

BTW, this year the lady at ASDOH said they are interviewing 350-400 and giving out 105 acceptances for a class of 76.

Also, and if I remember correctly, she also said 45 acceptances will be given out on Dec. 1.

I'd like to also suggest that the estimate of 350 people interviewed is a little low. In previous years it's always been 450+. Their interview pool is very competitive.
