wild0ne said:Congrats Sdnstud on your acceptance! How did they let you know about your acceptance (e.g., snail mail with a big ol' envelope, phone call, etc.)?
Hopefully, a recent post on Rush hinting they're done with this season isn't true.
Good luck guys.
JuicyDay said:so i just called them, and they said that they were getting ready to send out A LOT of interview invitations over the next few weeks (by email, as we all know by now). they're just really behind, i guess. she almost made it seem like nothing much had been going on in the last 2 months, and that NOW they were going to send a surge of invitations.
yep, I did just that and got the dreaded, "Your file has not been reviewed yet; it'll be reviewed next week/Monday". To me, this translates to, "Thanks for applying, your rejection letter or waitlist spot awaits ..."sdnstud said:Hey wildOne, why don't you call the admissions office and ask them if your file has been presented to the committee?
Sorry to hear that redruby. Hopefully, another school sees (or already has seen) you in a different light.redruby said:I was rejected approximately 2.5 weeks post interview. Apparently, the files go to commitee on Mondays, which is when they vote.
Hope this helps!

I was hesitant to call, since I didn't want to seem too anxious (which I was). Then, I figured the admissions offices have to be used to the pre-med types by now.
Thanks Sdnstud. The anxiety of not knowing was just getting to me. When I called, the conversation was pretty similar to how you advised above. Looks like I won't be bumping threads anymore (well, at least not for another week).sdnstud said:If they say your file will be reviewed next week, then be patient. Don't jump to the conclusion that you are a pending reject.
You shouldn't hesitate to call. You can start the phone call by saying, "I called last week regarding my application and was told to check back with you this week. Can I get an update on your application status." And end the phone call by saying, "oh, so my application will not be reviewed until next week? Would it be ok for me to call back by the end of next week to get an update?"
Hey jennben, do you think you will be attending next year? If you are, maybe I will see you at the Second Look day, anyways I am gonna go bump the Rush thread.jennben4 said:Hey all. First of all, congrats to those that are in @ Rush and to those still waiting... hang in there. I work at Rush and I interviewed on 2/8. I got my news on 3/4, which is about 3.5 weeks for those of you counting days. Things are definitely slow in coming. By my interview, they said said they were only about half way through and that I could expect info in about 2-4 weeks. However, the office is completely closed this week due to match. I have no idea how that affects things going on behind closed doors, but they are virtually shut down (at least to the outside world). So, keep that in mind. Also, if anybody has questions (as I have gotten in and I work here), fire away.

Valium? I've been sniffing on my highlighter for the last few weeks to pass the time. I interviewed about a week before you, and have yet to hear a word as well (told us 2-4 weeks as well). My gut feeling is that something should be coming this week; although, I have the same worries as you - seems like acceptances come quicker.teenyM24 said:I interviewed at Rush on 2/22 and was told I would hear from them within 2-4 weeks. It is now 3/22; is this something I should be concerned about... would they have accepted me already if that was what was going to happen, or is the school just slow? I am practically in need of Valium my nerves are shot to come home every day to an empty mailbox!!! (although not too keen on coming home to a mailbox with a rejection letter in it)

They were sending it out yesterday when I called.teenyM24 said:I called the admissions office with the carefully prepared script given to me by other kind message board users and I also found out that I had been accepted.
Still, I haven't received the letter after interviewing 2/22; I'm starting to wonder if they sent it out by carrier pigeon!
