i just got the e-mail from mt.sinai -- and it lists the e-mail of everyone that is getting the secondary (up to this point) in the to field, one by one. i'm holding myself back from replying all with something like "lay off my turf" or "help, i lost my sock" to every person applying there. if anyone has anything really funny suggestions, i'll give it a shot -- i may not apply there anyway:laugh:

i was going to post them and let you count them - but i figure someone is bound to get pissed - rough calculation was about ~900.

Isn't this a gross violation of our privacy?


I just got that Sinai email... again. Same thing. And both requested a return recept. I pitty the fool (as Mr. T would say) who has to wade through all of the return recepts.

Also, the link given for the secondary brings me to a single page document (the instructions for the secondary). Has anybody managed to get the whole secondary?

umm yeah - dunno whats up with the link to the secondary - wierdos - they sent this link, but to my knowledge it only has the instructions, and no other secondary. i don't think that you just send in a check, because the instructions strongly allude to more being there .... :

The Supplemental Application can
be downloaded from <http://www.mssm.edu/medschool/admissions/admissions.shtml>.
Completed applications must be returned by December 15, 2002. Students interested in applying to
our MST (MD/PhD) Program can obtain information about the program at
<http://www.mssm.edu/gradschool/mst_home.shtml> and details about the application process at <http://www.mssm.edu/medschool/admissions/admissions.shtml>.

Haha, "help I lost my sock", that's hilarious. Try offering money to write people's essays for them..

Last year, UMich made the same mistake when they sent out an email with the secondary. Problem is, they also listed AMCAS ID's next to every person's name, which was all that was required to access the app. They had to send out a second email threatening legal action if anyone used someone else's ID. . .

You'd think they could be a little more careful with these things :rolleyes:

Wouldn't it be easier to ask for a SSN or last name when you login.

i think what you should start doing is hitting on the girls applying to the school...
be like, 'ladies... i just wanted to let you know... i love all y'all.'

p

'i lost my sock' would be funny too..
what if you just responded to everyone pretending to only be responding to the school...

like:

'hi, i just have a few concerns about the school. i have constant diarrhea and was curious how evenly spaced the restrooms are on campus.'

oh man - i think i might not apply to the school just so i can abuse that list --- right now "help, i lost my sock" is good, and i also don't mind the hitting on the ladies one.;) after taking another look at the e-mail list its pretty wierd, besides a ton of hotmail and yahoo accounts its full of ivy league schools and a few strays like me. a friend from school is on the list, but hes waiting to take the august mcat. whatever - if only they would actually post their secondary now.

Oookayyy.....

#1. I didn't get the e-mail yet either.

#2. What do they mean "no snapshots"? I've been using a copy of my graduation pics. Does that count as a no-no?

:confused:

snapshots refer to purely casual pics that you take on vacations or something - basically if you can tell that at the time you took it you weren't thinking about using it for med school, then its a snapshot. i took my own pic with a digital camera ... and if they don't take it then oh well. anybody else get the e-mail?

Jot, you're applying for MSTP right? Maybe only MSTP people got the email. Because that's the only application on the website so far.
 
J

jot

nah - i hope not - 900 people applying mstp is pretty damn scary for 8 spots. my friend that is on the list is definately not mstp - seems to be a med only list.

I'm not applying to the MD/PHD and I still got the e-mail. Both the MSTP and regular applications are up on their site. Is Sinai screening or not? I figured since I won't take the MCAT til August that they must not be screening and just sent it to everyone in the first batch of AMCAS apps or something.

I didn't get the email, and I was one of the earliest submitted and verified. My stats aren't too shabby, either.
Anyway, the supp. is the exact same one as last year's!

i got the email too. so many people!!

you could configure an email account so that you appear to be the mssm dean of admissions, then send email a rejection letter to everyone on the list!! :p Better to try this from a public computer though.

Oh of course, wait a few months until everyone's submitted their secondaries.... :p

i like the idea of the journal you've put together... i'd like to check it out if possible. i will give you some advice though--- you shouldn't make your personal statement available for all to view... its not a good idea. i enjoyed reading it- but, if it falls in the wrong hands, you could find yourself dealing with a lot of shi.t anyway, i'm out

same question as for pitt, except this is about secondaries and not interviews:

are all of you who have gotten the secondary e-mail from mssm MD/PhD? i don't understand why i haven't gotten the e-mail since i definitely fall in their stats range and my personal statement and EC's are strong. oh, well.... will wait a few more days before i start to really worry. i have enough secondaries to worry about right now, anyway :p

the e-mail was for reg md people as well. i'm not sure what their deal is. whatever, i'm sending their sh*te out today.

i just got a 3rd e=mail from them with the same message - this time there was only me in the to field - i guess they fixed it.
