haha i've read those all a billion times and they just make me unhappy, like it seems like some of the kids who wrote the most times and wanted it the most were still unable to get in, and my gpa isn't like the hottest gpa ever, so i just feel terrible. and i can't speak spanish. =(
just got off the alternate list!!!!!!!! Dr. Frantz called me today, so psyched.
Hi! I've never posted before, either, but felt compelled to do so now. Like many of you, I've been stalking SDN for the past few weeks hoping for news!
I got the call from Dr. Frantz yesterday (April 30) -- and I'm in off the waitlist! So it appears the movement is starting to happen. It was kinda weird how it happened...I called the Admissions Office that afternoon and was told he was unavailable (at a meeting) and to call back in 15 minutes. The secretary didn't take my name or number. So I went out, ran some errands, but left my phone at home...and returned to a voicemail from Dr. Frantz asking me to call him back! When I called and asked for him, the same secretary answered. I gave her my first name and started to spell my last name (it's a tough one), but she cut me off, pronounced my last name correctly, and got Frantz on the phone. So perhaps they have a list of people by the phone that Dr. Frantz expects/waits to hear from...?
This acceptance came as a total shock -- I had my second interview at the end of March (sent a letter of interest to Frantz and he called within 3 days with a second interview appt time). The interview was 40 minutes long, a bit awkward...definitely not as smooth as many of the interviews I've had. Sent him an email thank you, but didn't get a response. I thought I was done for.
So hopefully this will give you all some hope -- there should be some more good news coming soon!
hey neurostud, i interpreted my letter as:
I don't plan to admit you, but who knows...maybe I'll change my mind.
I think im screwed and im tired of being upset about it. Congrats to everyone who got in, enjoy it for those of us who won't
