    So i've really been stressing out because i really haven't heard back from any of the school that i applied to. No rejection or interviews. Should i be worried? And do i still have a chance?

    I would guess that it really depends on what your stats are. I think once the first round of acceptances make their decision and cancel their remaining interviews or turn down the other offers of admission that they have received, more doors are going to open up for other applicants.

    I applied at the end of august. By the time my LOE's were in it was the beginning of October. I have fairly decent stats.

    3.3 science, 3.4 overall. and a 20 AA an 18 on perceptual.

    Most schools will send out their second round of acceptances in mid January. That is right when the 45 day window to put down a deposit closes for all those accepted on Dec 1st, and then these schools know how many more spots they need to fill.

    It is unlikely you will hear anything before then. Think of that day as your new "Dec 1st." That's when I got my good news last year! Its no fun playing the waiting game, but at this point just understand that there is a lot of time still left in this cycle.

    Whoops... I should read the these threads more carefully. :oops:

    I take back what I said above, because step 1 is getting an interview, and step 2 is getting aa acceptance. I didn't realize you were still on step 1.

    You can do what klutzy mentioned. Give them a ring and see what they have to say.
