LOL

it used to be one of the best medical schools in the country. but has fallen in recent years to rank 62.

when i was there this summer doing my internship, dr. terregino said they are really trying to get a jump in the rankings ladder.

i was just wondering how rwj contacts you after the interview, i know that Dr. Terregino calls you if you get accepted, but what about waitlists and rejections?
From what I know, they should reach a decision within 4-6 weeks post interview. However, I do know people who waited more than 6 weeks and didn't receive anything. They called the admissions office and were told that a decision on their application has been deferred until a later time, so it does happen. But I didn't know that it used to be one of the best med schools in the nation! Was that when it was called Rutgers Medical School, before joining UMDNJ?
