I recently had an interview at my top choice school. During the interview, my interviewer told me that I had "an outstanding application" and "some of the strongest letters of rec [this person] had seen." This person went on to say "what can we do to get you to come to our school" and "I would not be surprised if your acceptance is sent out in the first batch." Based on what this interviewer said, my friends have been trying to drag me out to celebrate my "acceptance" but I don't see it that way. For all that I know, the interviewer could have just been being nice to me, or trying to see how I would react or something (some warped kind of interview technique??) I am not comfortable with acting like I am "in" until I have an actual letter of acceptance from X school. What do you guys think? Am I right to insist on waiting for a letter of acceptance before I can assume that I am in, or should I be out celebrating? I guess you can call it pre-med paranoia... and I hope what I have said does not come across as boastful or arrogant, I really would just like someone's opinion.
