    Hey guys. I have not been accepted anywhere yet, but I have just had one interview and have two coming up. Here are my stats:
    BA in Biology from University of Virginia
    MCAT's V:13-15 P:14 B:13 Total: 39-41
    GPA: 3.2
    Exceptional EC's
    Exceptional Rec.s

    I applied a little late, and I am starting to stress about how late I am interviewing. Should I be?

    Also, 8 schools are still reviewing my files.

    Dude what the hell are you worrying about. With those stellar MCAT scores and decent GPA, you can get into anywhere. What schools are you getting interviews from?

    I agree. Just give them time. You'll hear good news soon enough! You have excellent MCAT scores. Good luck.

    FullO'Beans - Those are great numbers from a great school. You will likely have many suitors - be patient, they will be all over you in the next few months. I would caution you in roaming the SND boards - it will get you paranoid and will keep stressing you out. Just relax, everyone would love to have those numbers.

    Just as a precautionary reminder, make sure that the MCAT scores and GPA you have are what the schools you are applying to have. You never know, there might be a mix up. The is especially probable considering the screw up from AMCAS this year.

    Are you serious?! Everything but your GPA is exceptional! Hopefully you've applied toa whole range of schools, otherwise many might think you're overqualified.

    Beans,

    Keep those cheeks tight when interviewing. That could be the problem. Beano might also help. :D

    On a serious note, where are you going to be interviewing. I've got an interview in VA coming up soon. Maybe we'll bump into one another. I'll bring a gas mask just in case. ;)
