just wanted to start a thread so we could see when people are interviewing etc...

i got a UPitt/Carnegie Mellon mstp invite - they will be sending out early invites in a couple of days (the first short list i think). i have to check about dates, but i will post it soon.

someone mentioned they are interviewing for md/phd at jefferson - feel free to post dates. thanks -

Jefferson MD/PhD Interview for 12/11 (they gave me an earlier date, but I couldn't make it)

I'm hoping I get an invite from Pitt as well. My recs still aren't in, so they probably haven't even looked at my app yet.

Congrats, Jot!

Can I ask you something guys?

Those of you that got your invites before you sent in the secondaries (so they're primarily based on the numbers and the essay).... How good are your 'numbers'?

The reason I ask is because I retook the MCAT in August and I'm wondering if the schools are going to wait for my scores, or just go with the ones I already have....

surge,
from what i understand, they only give out md interviews pre-app (if you get it) -- but mstp interviews require a completed or near completed file. i think sluox is referrign to md - but you'll have to clear that up. i pm'd you about the #'s thing. but in general mine are the slightest bit above ave for md/phd - but nothing spectacular.

Today I got the UPitt invite too, but I cannot do it September 16. Oh well. I dunno when I'm going to schedule it, as soon as I can probably. The problem is that I need to buy suits and pay travel expenses for my interviews. I've worn a suit maybe twice in my life before, and then it was grandpa's suit that barely fit. Thanks to secondaries, I'm now about $1000 in the hole, and it will take me another month to dig myself back out of the hole.

How are you guys getting there? Plane, train, automobile? My car is all @#[email protected] up, and I can't afford to fix it, so I can't drive it... Looking for ideas (Greyhound?).

score - 4 sdn'ers have gotten it so far? thats pretty cool - i'm driving there neuronix, its about 4.5 hours from me, i might as well save the airfare/busfare. i'm psyched.

Unfortunately, I also cannot make it September 16. I am meeting with Eric Kandel here at my school on the 17th. Sorry guys. Hopefully, we can interview together at another school though.

I scheduled for Oct. 17th (MD/PhD) and 18th (MD). I will be driving from Eastern PA - about a 5-6 hour drive or so. I think I might ask to stay with an MD/PhD student host - told them I'd get back to them.

Neuronix, how is Oct 17th for you? Where are you coming from? And if you are worried about travel prices, are you going to stay with a student host? Or if you go the same day as me, PM me and we'll talk about possibly doubling up.

He has his moments. Just don't challenge him. He can't be wrong.

Yep. That's probably why my professor doesn't like him very much. He has some alternate theory on long term potentiation or facilitation (I can't remember which). I can just imagine Dr. Kandel just boiling up inside just thinking that people have the gall to have alternate theories to his. :laugh:

I am now confirmed for October 17th-18th at UPitt. Sorry Jot. I'll probably run into CaNEM, but it's unlikely we can carpool cause he's 2 1/2 hours north of me. Greyhound is $70 round-trip, 7 1/2 hour bus ride (yuck). If anyone else wants to come October 17th, you better hurry because there's only one more slot on that day.

hm i've heard kandel is one of the most over-published investigators of the modern era. his work is monumental, though.

I scheduled an MD interview at Temple. I asked if I should wait to hear from the MD/PhD program, but they said you have to get into the MD program first to be considered anyway. I wonder if that means they make MD/PhD applicants come back a second time...

Got an invitation today to interview at Georgetown, MD and MD/PhD programs.

So far, out of the 12 schools I applied to, that's 5 interviews. Haven't heard anything from the other 7 yet.

Congratulations guys on your interviews!! I think it would be funny to send CaNEM and Jot some fake rejection letters in the mail;)

BTW CaNEM I hear your from Scranton, do you know the Baretts by any chance?

Congrats guys! That's great. :cool:

I just made it cross-country and thought I'd check to see what's happened on this site over the past couple weeks--obviously quite a bit.
I'll be in Pittsburgh on the 16 and 17th, so I should get to meet some of you. I just got the invite (they call) from Hopkins last night, so I'm trying to rearrange my flights so I can go on Sept. 18th and 19th. Hope to see some of you there and good luck!

You'll be seeing sloux and Jot at Pittsburgh. You were able to schedule the Hopkins interview for the 18th and 19th? They told me the first free date was in October. Good luck!
