Oh, and for those who are wondering. My status page just says "Welcome Back"... it doesn't say a decision has been made or anything.

wow.. MDT, congrats! that's a great news! You definitely deserve it~ I think a lot of people here, if they knew you enough, would definitely envy you. You worked for a great company for few years and got a plenty of good research experience as well as cash to pay for med school expenses... and now you are going to be a doctor! :) i hope i soon follow in your footsteps... congrats again to you and all others who got accepted~ ^^

Ok, so what does NU do if home phone line is busy all night due to step-sister on the Internet! +pissed+


Guess I will have to wait for a letter. :)

I got the call around 8ish. Sorry, don't want to share my last name, but it's in the first half of the alphabet.

I'm most definitely not a rock star (as all the schools who rejected me would be happy to tell you I'm sure...) but I'm non-traditional.

I wish everyone the best of luck. May the Force be with you.

If you weren't around, would they leave a message? I had an "unknown" number show up on my phone around 6:50 tonight, but there was no message. I wonder if they made all the calls today. Oh well.

I don't think they are. I think we have to wait for the letters...

No, they wouldn't leave a messege. Sounds like it was around the right time though...

nope,although I have complete faith in my powers of portend, ultimately you'll have a choice of great schools (including the one i predicted hopefully) because of your own accomplishments and b/c you deserve it.

does anyone know if they are making more calls today (2/25)? i never understood why they would only call certain accepted applicants and leave the rest to wait for the mail....

im assuming they havent called all accepted people yet...so there's still hope....anyone know if they mail letters out today?

Usually I just assume that the hang up calls are telemarker calls, so I don't bother to find out who they are. I guess I'll have to wait for the letter to come.:eek:

did northwestern call everyone in one day last year? Should we be expecting more calls going out today? After being waitlisted 5 times over now, my patience is wearing very thin...

bro, I'm at work and we can't make any long distance calls, including out of state.

Can someone else call and tell us if they are mailing out letters?

"letters go out sometime this week"
me- "oh so they haven't gone out yet"
"I don't know. I only know they go out sometime this week. Expect to hear something from us sometime early next week. [when the letter arrives i guess]."


damn...

yup, all final decisions have been made--all letters are going out this week. The lady I spoke to at the feinberg office wasn't sure if the Ad Com folks were still calling accepted applicants. (i called just a few minutes ago)

gotta keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best. i really hope we all get some good news. :)
