    Has anyone who took the August MCAT, this being the second, third, etc time you've taken it, had any interviews or been recently invited for interviews? If yes, what schools and what are your stats (gpa and MCAT) and URM status. Thanks :clap:

    A friend of mine took the August MCAT and has received 3 interviews so far:eek: He has interviewed at GWU and USUHS. He found out this week about another interview at MCW. He had taken the MCAT before. I won't post his stats, since they are not mine, but he isn't a URM. There is hope for us August MCATers. I find myself checking the mail obsessively but realistically I don't expect any interview invites for atleast a couple of weeks since schools are just beginning to receive my new scores. Good luck to all August MCATers and the interviews will come soon.

    I hadn't ever taken the MCAT before August, so I'm waiting by the telephone, waiting for an interview invite. Waiting! It can drive one insane. Good thing SDN is around, or I'd be forced to take up knitting.

    I have had interviews at Vandy, UCHSC, Pitt, and an invite from NYMC. I took the August 2001 and August 2002 MCATs and am reapplying this year. While some schools chose to process my app with my first score, others held my apps until the new score came in. Unfortunately, I didn't
    improve, so it all turned out to be a futile effort.

    Stats:
    3.65 GPA (3.62 BCPM) from a good school
    34 S August 2001
    34 Q August 2002

    BTW: I checked today on N'western's app status page, and the "HOLD FOR AUGUST MCAT SCORE" box changed from a yes to no today. So schools may have alrady received August MCAT scores, or I will soon be getting a rejection from them. Oh well.

    I checked my AMCAS application yesterday and all the schools I applied to re-downloaded my application earlier this week to get my new August scores.

    How often does Northwestern get updates? It's the only school that hasn't received a transmission since my AMCAS was verified on September 30. All of the other schools have updated at least twice since then. The only transmission date I have for NU is September 3, way before my application was verified. Do you guys think there is something wrong? Or does NU just not receive updates of the application as often as other schools?

    Hey august people,
    I've got Rush, Vanderbilt (on Valentine's day..), and SLU.
    I've also developed an unhealthy obsession with waiting for the mail. Seriously, I just want every school to send me something, anything!!! even a rejection. then i wouldn't have to harass the mailman.

    I took the Aug MCAT and recieved an interview from a Texas school just the other day. MCAT 29. GPA 3.86. Hope that eases your mind. My stats aren't that great and they wanted to talk to me. Good luck.

    I am an August MCATer...33P MCAT 3.61 GPA. I just got an interview with U of Nebraska. I am a resident though, and I believe they send out interview invites to all NE residents...oh well, that's where I wanna go (so I can move back home and mooch of my parents :) so, I'm excited!!! Other than that I haven't had any interviews...but that may be at least partly due to the fact that one of my professors has not sent out my LORs yet :(

    Lola, hang in there! I'm feeling a good vibe about your future soon...seriously. I was out of town for three days and couldn't check my mail. I knew, when I came back, it would have a fat envelope. Same vibe. You'll get one soon, too!

    lola, gracias! Have faith, this is the month when we aug mcaters are starting to hear back . . . Finally! Btw, noticed your absence this weekend--hope you had a great birthday getaway! :)

    Pinki, I know what you mean @ that vibe. Today, on the way home from work, I bought a lottery ticket (only won $1), but then found out @ the interview when I got home & went thru my ritual of status-checking online.
