it means you are under review ;) , hey Dr, just be patient. I've read alot of your posts and I must say that I think you worry too much....not getting accepted to med school is NOT the end of the world...take it from a guy who has been rejected two years in a row and now I'm on my way to med school somewhere (haven't made up my mind yet) :clap: I would advise you study your ass off the April MCAT, get your results in June, submitted to the schools that you are waitlist it at ( I think you said Einstein waitlisted you right?) including some of the schools that you are still waiting to hear from now...because let's be real man, if you interview this late in the game....most likely it'll be for a waitlist, but I'M SURE that come MAY 15th...those waitlists will move! So there's your chance. Good luck to you and relax.......:cool:
