    wow, that was fast! i got a small envelope and i thought i was already rejected or something. my interview is scheduled for mid-september. i'm really excited, but then i'm kind of worried they just invited a lot of people who had sent in copies of their app to an interview because they wanted to get the process rolling. what do you think?

    Petros are you a early decision applicant? Nonetheless, that was fast. CONGRATS!

    Good job, at least someone has benefited from an early application despite AMCAS. Best of luck to you Petros! :D

    I guess I should have opened my mail before posting. I got an interview notice today too. I mailed in my application on 7/19/01. My numbers are significantly lower than Petros'. Not a URM. Good luck to all.

    Congrats petros and mdhopeful. Tulane seems to really be on the ball. I really thought MCW would be the first school to start offering interviews but it seems they're too busy e-mailing everyone to send in the designated schools list. Hey mdhopeful, you said you mailed in your AMCAS application on 7/19? Do you remember when you sent your secondary application in? Congrats again. I think you'll find Dr. Pisano to be quite a character. I've heard a lot about him. Good luck in your interviews!

    i'm sorry if i sound skeptical, but i have a feeling that more people are going to get interview invitations from tulane than usual. i think they're worried b/c of the AMCAS delays and may be offering interviews to many of those who have already sent in apps. i mean, how many apps could they possibly have right now to choose between those that are competitive and those that are not? flying out to new orleans is really expensive if tulane wouldn't ordinarily be interviewing me. i sure hope that they are genuinely interested in me, though. it really made my day. with all this stuff going on with AMCAS, this alleviated all of my worries and boosted my confidence.

    I really doubt that tulane would lower their standards because of the AMCAS situation, after all it does cost them money and time to setup extra interviews and to review more applications thoroughly. Most likely, they would have to have more interview days and that would be quite costly as well. Don't worry, you have every right to be confident and happy. Hey, enjoy the benefits of your hard work and promptness! Again, congrats, and start preparing!!!

    :D :D :D :D

    mdhopeful, do mind sharing your numbers as well. I sent in my secondary materials around the same time and have heard nothing from tulane. I didn't think much of it considering what petros' numbers were, but if you have siginificantly lower numbers and still got an interview i suppose that should mean something to me. if you don't want to share your numbers could just let me how they compare to mine: MCAT: 33T, GPA: 3.3. Thanks.

    Congrats on the interviews!

    Like a previous poster, I seriously doubt that Tulane would be going to the trouble of interviewing many more students than normal because of AMCAS difficulties. Just appreciate that you have a competitive application at this point, go to New Orleans and have a great time! If you haven't been there before, give yourself an extra day or two to see the city -- it can be a lot of fun.

    a question to you tulane interview guys/gals. have you submitted everything like amcas, recommendations and secondaries? or did they give you the interview before your file was complete? anxious tulane applicant.

    Georgey, my numbers are lower than yours both MCAT and GPA. I'm a non-trad, with a Masters, non-URM, went to a small liberal arts college, been out for 4 years, CA resident, submitted AMCAS June 21, sent in my printed app and secondary to Tulane on 7/19/01. My committee letter should have been there waiting when I sent in my printed AMCAS. That's all the info I have. Good luck.

    Congrats!

    Just a quick question about the secondary. I finished school 2 years ago. do i need to list the classes that meet their requirements on the secondary application? I ask this because on the secondary there is a space saying, "grades received." What have you people done?

    CU in med school: definitely not. i finished these prereqs in my first two years of college. thus, they were listed on my amcas application when it was submitted. some classes were listed as "in progress" on my primary, but since these did not apply to prereqs, all i wrote for #6 was "N/A." The reason it says "grade received" is because some students may have gotten their grades for their prereqs AFTER submitting their primary.
    Hope this helps.

    by the way, why did someone write "that's all you need" in response to me stating i am a white male from a UC school?
     
  31. who knows, who cares, and who understands? referring to the comment "that is all you need"

    Petros, any med-school in the nation can fill it's class with 4.0ers with the first hundred apps it receives! Don't kid yourself, they have PLENTY of apps already (there are a LOT of people chomping at the bit to get there AMCASes in on the VERY first day...all across the nation), so picking you for an interview was not an accident or because "they don't have enough apps yet". Be PROUD you got an interview...and start getting ready for it!!!

    Don't forget you guys, Interview Feedback is a site that has actual interview feedback for every school in the nation. It's an invaluable tool for those of you about to interview!

    Good Luck!
