Hello all.... I just received my letter from GW stating that I am on hold for the 'slim possiblity' of an interview in the summer. So after being put on hold in February I'm on hold again. However, GW did say in the letter that this pool of applicants is really small, so I want to conduct a poll to find out how small it really is....

i loved how they kept saying not to get your hopes up but they were giving hope .... the whole letter made me laugh though... it was worse than being rejected... cuz now theyre going to string you along and then in the summer send you the rejection letter

right now even 20 seems like a lot for this small pool of applicants.... esp because only SDN so far has 20... imagine how many others dont know about this site that have received it

Don't get a big head about this but I don't think SDN is a representative sample of med school applicants, I think most SDNers are ahead of the curve.

quite the contrary ... i was referring to how if SDN has 20 people so far (and some lurkers who havent posted), then the pool of "small" applicants is a lot larger than they make it seem since as you said, the SDN members 'are ahead of the curve'

I might actually call and find the number, or hopefully a 'ballpark' number of people on hold for the 'potential' summer interviews. I mean a 'small' pool of applicants could range anywere from a few people to over 200. I wish they were more precise on the letter they sent and told us how many people they put on hold.

For example if they put 25 people on hold, that might actually give us a good chance to interview, BUT if they have 300 people in this category and hope to interview a few for waitlist spots it may not be worth it!?!?

I am going to call them next week!
