    To help those of us still waiting on interviews We should start a new post for people who have been recieving RECENT (After Jan 10)interviews.
    The post should include:

    1. Date interview recieved
    2. Date interview scheduled
    3. School
    4. MCAT/GPA

    great post....how about a list with the following format

    LINE 1 - TYPE "Name of school"
    LINE 2 - TYPE "Date Invite Received" for "Date of Interview"
    LINE 3 - GPA/MCAT
    LINE 4 - "Y" or "N" for instate

    example would be U of MD

    University of Maryland
    1/21 for 3/16
    3.5/30
    Y

    this way multiple people could add their stats for each school..

    of course, only include your personal stats if you're comfortable doing so...some people may find it helpful....the most important things though are the 2 dates and the state residency

    alright here we go. if you want my stats/school, PM me and i'll give em to you. i just dont think stats make much of a difference anymore_ you know the schools' average scores and people above and below those numbers get interviews and get rejected. there are much more revealing and important parts of an application.

    PM me if you want stats.

    Choker, you lucky dawg you! Have I mentioned before (ahem, about a billion times) that I'd love to hear from Emory. It's good to know that they are still contacting people for interviews. Good luck, man!

    Also, there is a similar thread floating around. I don't think it's that great an idea to juggle both. Perhaps a consolidation?

    I had a good week last week:

    MCP-Hahenmann
    1/15 for 4/2

    Jefferson
    1/15 for 4/3

    Mayo (on-site)
    1/16 for 1/24

    By the way I think this post will interfere with Jalkbrekt's newest list of schools CURRENTLY interviewing...

    Hey, I have an idea. Let's copy someone elses post so that we have very redundant message lines. And maybe bring up another post that was on page 5 and that was forgotten.

    i've been dying to here from MCP and/or Jefferson...It's sure good to hear that they're still sending out invites (even if they are for April!!)

    good luck!

    choker,

    I have a three on one interview coming up (three interviewers and myself), so maybe I can use it for practice...in case Emory gives me a ring. How were you contacted, BTW? A major concern of mine is that Emory will wait until after they stop interviewing to send a rejection. I'm dead set on appealing a rejection if I get one, so I hope they come to a decision soon.

    Well, good luck on the 28th. I have an interview that day also (not the three on one interview, though). We'll both be sweating bullets that day, I guess. ;)

    Thanks aldo16...I'm looking forward to those interviews. Both MCP and Jefferson had all of April available for interview dates when I spoke with them last week. They had some March dates available as well but I chose the April dates so that I could coordinate both in the same week. Jefferson would only interview on Wednesdays and they have spring break and hence no interviews on March 27. Just for the record, the MCP invite came by regular mail and the Jefferson by email.

    This is also a good time for lots of interview dates as people start cancelling scheduled interviews as they get accepted at other places. That is how I got a Mayo interview so close to the invitation date.

    Good luck...

    OK...LISTEN UP!!!!

    Do I have everyone's attention? Good.

    What is the point of this post? It's ONLY JANUARY! Most schools have rolling admissions and interview up until May in some cases (although most are in April). And, because of the scAMCAS fiasco, they'll be interviewing even later in the year.

    Now, I know this is a taxing process, but everyone just needs to relax. Interviews will be coming, so don't worry. Crack open a beer, drink some shiraz, sip on a snifter, toke on a pipe, inhale some vapors, or whatever else makes you relaxed. Good luck to everyone.

    swampman .... are you talking about EVMS (3 on 1 interview).....

    if so, then relax....it's not bad at all (other than the initial 2 second "****, there's 3 dudes lookin at me" feeling)

    :D Yes, aldo. Please don't misinterpret my "practice" comment. EVMS is #3 on my list of schools now. Emory is #1, so... It's only "practice" in comparison. I think the feeling you described may last more than 2 seconds! ;)

    smamp....

    hey man, i totally understand what you meant by 'practice'...don't sweat it.....we all have some schools we'd prefer over others (Jefferson!!)

    but my guess is you'll really like EVMS (unless you're hardcore into research). of all the med schools i've ever visited or know friends at, EVMS has the most incredibly friendly student body...i couldn't walk 2 feet looking lost without some student walking up to me and helping me with directions, advice, etc.

    and oh yeah....then there's the little matter of the beach being 15 mins away...

    heh, heh

    SwampMan, out of curiousity, why, specifically, is Emory your #1 choice? i know it's a great school and it's one of my top choices, but i was just wondering why you like it so much and what makes it special?

    I've been rooting for you and am so glad to see that you're receiving those interviews...we have similar stats and are going to have somewhat similar life experiences (when I head of to PC-Russia). Your interviews give me hope! Good luck.

    Thanks CoffeeCat. I'll let you know how the Peace Corps discussion goes at these interviews. There is no way that I could discuss medicine without discussing my experiences in the Peace Corps.

    By the way, there is a coffee shop in Anchorage (out on Abbott near Lake Otis for all those from Anchortown) called Coffee Cats.

    Choker,

    My reasons for wanting to attend Emory are somewhat superficial (not all, but some), so don't rip out my throat for being honest. Here goes:

    1) I know a couple people at the school who love it.

    2) The campus is awesome.

    3) When I visited the school, I met some wonderful people.

    If you check out the campus the day after your interview, you will probably get the same treatment I did. People were more than happy to show me around their campus. If you tell them you are visiting from another university, they roll out the red carpet and really try to impress you.

    4) It's within driving distance from my home.

    5) The school has a traditional curriculum (my preference).

    6) I've never lived in a city, and Emory is very close to Atlanta (it's on the outskirts).

    7) Reputation

    I can't leave this out and remain honest, now can I?! Sorry, I know some of you cringed when you read it.

    8) Here's a REAL superficial one. I'm almost ashamed to admit it. Yes, it is retarded! Sorry folks. Ok, here goes...

    I resent having had to turn down, for financial reasons, an acceptance from Emory as a high school student. I think Emory is a great school. Yes, it's even better than my alma mater...not to insinuate that UF isn't great, it is. I guess that many of the above reasons were reasons I wanted to attend Emory out of high school and they still appeal to me. I just couldn't justify paying as much as I would have for an undergrad degree. I think a med degree at Emory is a worthwhile investment, however.


    There is one thing that I don't particularly like about Emory. They have two hospitals: one for the rich and one for all others.

    I started this post for the purpose of giving the people still waiting for an interview a better idea of the interviewing time frame and respective stats for the school they are interested. I think that this post definitly serves a purpose but we should stick to the format proposed in the begining. There are two main differences between this post and the other similar ones. One i set a specific date as only interviews after january 10th thus keeping up to date on very recent invites. Secondly, the MCAT/GPA component helps students to interpret if schools are now requesting interviews for applicants in thier competitiveness range. Thus, the significance of this post.

    I don't mind posting my stats, but think it's not very useful without the undergraduate institution. Plus this format denies the undeniable importance of essays, EC's, volunteering, research, and clinical experience. Anyway, hope this helps someone. :)

    SLU 1/16 for 1/29 (regional, in Seattle)
    Vermont 1/16 for 2/26

    Well, SMW, I think the association between a major and GPA is more significant than the association between an institution and a GPA. Why aren't people on this thread posting their majors?

    And you stole the words right out of my mouth about the flattery stuff (well, kinda). ;) Guess I should be flattered? :)

    Just learned I have an OHSU interview when I called them. I'm pretty excited. Lots of relatives there, including an older sister who's expecting a baby this summer!! :D


    OHSU 1/23 for 2/19 (possibly, subject to change to later date if they can't squeeze me in to accommodate my other west coast interviews))
    3.5/30M

    I just got an invite from Loma Linda yesterday via snail mail, but when I called this morning to schedule, I literally had no choice as to the day. They are only interviewing through the 26th of February, and all days except that one are full. So, there must not be too many more invites going out. Good luck to anyone still waiting--I know I had pretty much given up on Loma Linda. BTW, I'm not SDA.
