    thanks, Doctor Foxy. I sure hope you're right. I'm trying not to lose hope and not to get upset, but...

    On the other hand, it seems like your apps were in about a month or more later than mine, so a lot of schools probably haven't gotten to your file. I'm sure you have more interviews coming your way!!!

    I think that I was complete around September or October. I have a 4.0 and though my MCAT stinks at 25R, I have excellent recommendations and clinical experience (as told to me by an admissions advisor). My clinical experience includes working as a nurse in a leadership role. I applied to 10 schools and have 3 rejections so far(the third one came yesterday). No interviews as of yet. I guess that my MCAT is killing me.
