    I'll be coming as well. Still havent got my plane tix yet so I'm going to do that now.

    I havent received anythhing in the mail yet either, so I guess I'm just going to have to wing it while I'm down there or ask if they have another schedule they can give me.

    Are any of you opting out of the baseball game/aquarium visit?

    I'd like to come back on that Saturday, but I dont want to rustle any feathers either. Would they care if I left before those activities start up? I think they are last on the schedule of things.

    Hi Guys

    I just got back from my personalized revisit at Hopkins... I had a blast! It strengthened my favor towards the school. I was surprised to see that so many grad students actually owned houses in the area. I got to talk to so many cool faculty members, hung out with a lot of med students, got the full tour of baltimore and of hopkins, and went to about 4-5 lectures with med students (I was there for about 4 days). It was amazing! I'm sure you'll all love it.

    The one thing that I am wondering about is whether we need sleeping bags or anything else for sleeping arrangements...I think we will just figure out most of it when we get there. And about leaving early- this weekend is about us and I don't think they care when you leave, as long a you feel you got a good second look at the school.
    See you there!

    I'll be there, but as of yet I haven't even received ANYTHING in the mail...got my acceptance and financial aid and in that note it told me about the weekend. I bought a plane ticket and so far I'll just be showing up unannounced at their doorstep on Friday morning :D

    Hope there's someplace for me to sleep...

    Dr. Doolittle-

    Interviewed on 2/15 and got a phone call on 3/18. As I said before they still haven't officially sent me stuff on the second look weekend, but I'm crashing the party anyway <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    I wouldn't be too nervous yet, they take at least a month to make a decision post-interview- GOOD LUCK!

    So I just called and was told that 1st years would be calling us today and tomorrow to finalize housing stuff (so I guess those phone calls will answer questions about sleeping bags, etc) So, if you sent in the form, you should be getting a phone call.

    nine-sixteen. this is very strange. I interviewed on 2/14 and the receptionist told me last Friday that they just met on the 2/14 applications. Please, don't get me wrong I'm not trying to repeat the numbers guy/Original mortal combat. But do u think the receptionist was pulling a fast one on me?

Bringing up memories of past SDN spats...don't worry, I won't jump all over you and accuse you of calling me a liar or anything like that, you have a legitimate concern. So, I definately interviewed on Friday, Feb 15 and there was a message on my answering maching from Dean White on Monday, March 18. :confused:

    I would believe the receptionist, there could be a million reasons why the 15th applicants went to committee before the 14th...an interviewer was late submitting the report, member of the ad com was sick with West Nile virus, you name it. I've stopped trying to make sense of this entire process and just go with the flow. If she told you that you just went to committee, it's probably true and you should be getting a phone call soon. I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya!

    You guys are so nice.
    Okay, any 2/14's in here. Have you guys heard anything. I just called and asked the receptionist about 2/14. She claims they are still making calls. This is stranger than anything I have ever put my mind to. Oh well, its all good. Cheers everybody.

    99.9 % sure, just waiting on one last school to reject me so that it will be final and official :) But, I'm pretty stoked about Hopkins and can't wait for this weekend!

    i just got an email from hopkins confirming my housing arrangements... they said to dress casual, and to bring a sleeping bag...

    of course, all of y'all will receive that same email, but just in case y'all check sdn first...

    take care
