Larsitron said:Well, if I get an envelope such as yours I'll be there. When did you interview? I'm trying to gauge their turnaround time.
gbiz said:What did the letter say? I just interviewed there, and I liked it. Right now its my 2nd choice, if I get accepted My 1st waitlisted me.
Damn! I haven't received the invite, but I'll be there if I get one.TMag said:The letter is an invitation for a Second Look Weekend. It comes with a program of the activities they have planned for the three days (Fri-Sun). They pay for your hotel room for both nights and they will reimburse you for travel expenses (up to $300). So essentially everything is covered. Sweet!
leiface said:Do they invite everyone for second look or just specific people?
Sweet!!!!! Hopefully I'll get it in the next day or two... Thanks for the heads up, TMag.TMag said:I'm pretty sure they invite everyone who received an acceptance. If you were accepted and haven't gotten the invite yet, you'll probably get it early this week. I got mine on Friday, so I'm sure these will pop up in people's mailboxes within the next few days.

You guys also get to go to our "Doc Opera" student theatrical show which is a fundraiser for the cleveland free clinic. It's usually pretty entertaining. Welcome
leiface said:I got my invitation today too! yay! Though I think they forgot to send the itinerary with mine because I can't find anything that says doc opera. Can someone give a run down on what's going on this weekend? Thanks!
exmike said:Some more good new for the Class of '09
The school has been evaulating Tablet PCs for your class (as you know, every case med student gets a laptop). They've given us a few of them to play with and they are awesome. For you guys that dont know, Tablet PC's have a swivel and tilt screen that folds over the keyboard so you can write on it like a notebook. The reason for this is because our Syllabi are online as well as in print. With the tablet PC, you can directly annotate your syllabus while in class direcly into the computer! Should be cool. Some of us joke about flunking year one so we can get our hands on a tablet PC.
word here at SDN seems to be that only selected people get to apply, and that they let you know if you are one of them in your acceptance letter. I have absolutely no idea if there is any truth to this, though.mmarine said:Has anyone heard about merit scholarship applications yet?
hehe, don't worry, i called. the lady said if you didn't get any info with your acceptance, your ass is grass.Larsitron said:Yeah, I dropped the ball on the merit scholarship info...I'm going to call tomorrow. I also haven't received a second look invite. I was accepted and all, but shouldn't I have gotten something closer than less than a month in advance?
nah, just paraphrasing. i'm still pretty pissed about it, though. i kind of wanted to argue with her and resort to childish name-calling when i learned that i wasn't qualified for a case scholarship, but i figured that would not bode well for my financial aid package.Larsitron said:Were those her exact words?
damn, SD, if you aren't qualified for a merit-based scholarship I wonder who in the hell is.superdevil said:nah, just paraphrasing. i'm still pretty pissed about it, though. i kind of wanted to argue with her and resort to childish name-calling when i learned that i wasn't qualified for a case scholarship, but i figured that would not bode well for my financial aid package.
hey, thanks a million, seeds. seriously, though, it does make me wonder. a 95th percentile mcat and a 99th percentile gpa with 3 years of research doesn't cut it to apply? hell, i even live just a hop, skip, and jump away from case! i would have attended in a heartbeat with a scholarship, but now things are back to being clear as mud.Mr. Seeds said:damn, SD, if you aren't qualified for a merit-based scholarship I wonder who in the hell is.
