Ok, I interviewed at Stony Brook in mid-October, it has now been over 7 weeks from interviewing with them and I still haven't heard anything. Has it taken this long for anyone else to hear from them or should I just give up all hope?
snapshot said:hey, i called yesterday b/c i interviewed on oct 21st and she said it will still be a "few months" before decisions are made. she checked my status and it still said 'under review' --- i was under the impression that they made decisions in 4-8 weeks!
snapshot said:thank you, that's reassuring i just hope it doesn't turn out to be a few MONTHS!
do you think u're going to go? what did you think of the school??
i really like everything about it ... except location. but, that's something i'm willing to lay to rest if it means i don't have to pay an extra $30,000 to live in nyc

here's hoping i get in to stony and you don't get in anywhere else. kidding kidding.
but, those are good points. i've just been aching to be in a city for a while. i don't know how feasible it will be to commute over there too often. but, i am easily the most distractable person on the planet, so some distance might be nice. thanks for the insight.
snapshot said:hm..that's really interesting. i didn't get that when i visited, but i had a pretty odd day. i showed up in the morning, had my interview immediately, then went right to lunch/tour with one student. she's really the only person i met there - and though she was 22, she said she didn't go out, got up every morning at 4:30am (no joke) to play racquetball and lived in the garage apt of her sister's house... so i don't know how much that says about the youngn's in the group. i'm straight out of college, too and i def. am not settling down next year. (however, i wasn't digging their selling point of 'the undergrad campus is so close!'). i'm sure wherever we go, we'll find a chill group who will commute to the city on weekends
and earlier, when i said i was concerned about location, it was less the proximity to the city than the lack of absolutely anything in the immediate surrounding area. i'm in ithaca now, and though it's a small isolated town, i LOVE IT. there's so much culture and something to do a few blocks away. stony brook seemed to be a campus in the middle of a forest, surrounded by endless suburbs. it'd be nice to have somewhere to go on a weekday to take a break or on a weekend w/o driving an hr.

WE MET THE SAME GIRL!!!!!!!!! and although she was very very sweet. she frightened me!!! a) who lives with their sister? i love my sister but no way. b) who wakes up at 4:30???? for any reason that is not absolutely...punishable by death... required and c) honestly now, who doesn't go out? why? what is she doing?? (other than sleeping so she can wake up at 4:30 am..).
i know. i was living in princeton before and it was a small town but a really great one...but mostly because of Prospect Ave and entertainment provided by the school. I think port jefferson is suppossed to be okay and sorta cute and i hear a lot of med school kids live there. as long as there are liek 2 dive bars that we can go to and take random weekends into the city then we will survive. you have made me feel a lot better so now hurry up and get in i'll be sending major good luck vibes your way.
