    I don't expect to hear from one of the schools I interviews at that releases results on Oct. 15th, but I'm counting down until Nov. 15th! (Prematch in Texas)

    I'll be hoping to hear from a couple schools! Even though I'm still waiting on more IIs (hopefully), the peace of mind from an acceptance will be the best gift in the world!

    To all the applicants waiting, congratulations! Just the fact that you have attended a single interview and are waiting at this point is a major accomplishment. Keep that in mind when worry and anticipation gnaws at your brain.

    I applied early and broadly to a lot of schools. Not a single II so far but several rejections.

    Congrats everyone! It seems unreal sometimes that this long premed chapter of our lives may (hopefully) be coming to an end while another chapter begins.

    I thought October would feel like it is crawling, but time actually feels like it's going pretty quickly!

    People have been asking me if I have gotten into med school yet since June, 2013. It would be really nice to be able to say "YES!" instead of having my self esteem balloon deflated a little every time I see someone.

    I know this probably depends on the school, but how often do schools review files post interview? For instance, I have an II Oct 17 to my state school, do they hold interviews, then review files the following week? Month? If this is a dumb question, my bad.

    Most schools say the committee meets to vote on candidates within two weeks. I think most committees meet once a week?

    All my top choices I've already interviewed at......

    Should I plan for affine interviews the week of the 22nd or do I feel ballsy? That is the question

    So if you guys get an acceptance from a school but let's say your top choice offered you an interview in January or something, do you have to accept the acceptance or are you allowed to wait until you get a decision from your top choice?

    You can accept many acceptances until the deadline in April.

    I read somewhere on some school's site (can't recall) that you must respond to an acceptance within 6 weeks. Is that a school specific thing or is there a more general rule that overrules that?

    So then let's say a school has a 2 week rule. If you were to get an acceptance from them way in advance, you have no choice but to attend and not find out whether you could get into other schools?

    No problem! This is a long and confusing process! I hope you have the 'problem' of multiple acceptances! ;)

    Don't worry about it, It's a very confusing process. You pretty much pay a deposit (usually $100) for the school to hold your seat (acceptance), until April, when you have to let go of multiple acceptances and make a choice.

    Just interviewed today at my top choice! I was nervous leading up to the interview. It ended up going great and I felt relieved and relaxed for about 5 min after. Then I realized, **** I might find out in 12 days!!.... Back to being nervous.
