    I GOT IN!!!!

    Holy crap I am so psyched! I just got home and got the letter. It came Priority Mail (big white envelope with a manilla envelope inside). It came with some Financial Aid stuff, ID card stuff, etc.

    I am in Suffolk County on Long Island (about an hour away from NYC), so the mail from the city comes pretty quickly.

    I hope everyone else hears good news too! Now I'm gonna go get drunk!

      Heyooooo first acceptance, congratulations! Now you're going to need to give us as many details as possible (your stats, how your interview went, etc. etc. etc. etc.) NOW! Do this before you're drunk if possible.

            Even more importantly....are you in the "I received handwritten communication in the mail before acceptance" category???

                haha ok, before I hit the bottle:

                Here are my stats:

                GPA 3.62
                Sci GPA 3.74
                Chemistry major, graduated Holy Cross in '03
                37N mcat


                I interviewed with Frantz in November. It went really well. We talked about Holy Cross (my undergrad), teaching high school (my current job), rugby, multiple sclerosis (a family member has it). It was a great interview. My tour guide was kind of weird, but I still loved the place. Hope this helps.

                  No, no handwritten communiques. haha. Just a typed letter from Dr. Frantz thanking me for my thank you note (if you can follow that). Got the "keeping you strongly in mind" stuff.

                              well, i disagree. but if our performace on the pitch lacked it was only because we spent more time practicing with the keg (and the reason we were disbanded, might i add).
