    I dunno... I do have an acceptance but its to a place that I REALLY can not go to. I would not be able to go through med school b/c of family reasons going there... and then I have 3 waitlists also.

      You have two acceptances according to your MDapplicant's profile.

      Anyways I'm in the same boat as the rest of you.

        Well, this is the MD forum, I have one MD acceptance.

        The other one is a DO.


        I consider them separate fields; which they are, even though both are full physicians. They are separate apps, separate schools, etc. I have one MD acceptance.

          Im in the waitlist category :thumbdown:

          3 waitlists
          0 acceptances

          2 more interviews to come.

          Now I am worried b/c out of two of the schools I got waitlisted at least one of them I expected to get into.

            3 schools from which i have no word post-secondary... one school says it's "actively evaluating" my app, whatever that means.

            no, we are definitely not alone. is it may 15th yet?

              It's comforting to see other people in the same boat, though I can't say it's good to see you guys here.

              Good luck to all. It's definitely frustraing, but we got's to keep the faith.

                  Here is my situation:

                  7 interviews
                  4 interviews to go
                  1 waitlist
                  0 acceptances
                  1 pre-interview hold
                  waiting to hear from 8 more schools about interviews

                  Do you guys still stalk the mail carrier? I hope I am not alone.

                    2 interviews--
                    1 interview upcoming,
                    1 waiting to hear
                    2 "pre-interview holds"
                    5 no word post-secodary
                    6 rejections
                    0 acceptances

                    ...and a partridge in a pear tree :)

                    I'm supposed to hear back from OHSU next week or so, really hoping for an acceptance but more realistically looking at a waitlist (just praying it won't be a rejection). It's not over yet, but it's really hard to stay optimistic--the stress has been really getting to me the past couple of weeks, knowing that invites are pretty much done being sent out at many schools. It's nice to know we're not alone, it seems the avg SDN applicant had 2 or more acceptances by Dec, making the rest of us feel all the more stressed and pathetic. Good luck guys.

                      Can anybody clarify the difference between a waitlist and a post-interview hold??

                      I guess I should change what i wrote before and say I have:

                      1 waitlist
                      1 post-interview hold
                      1 adcom has yet to make a final decision??

                        Keep your heads up. I applied twice. The first time was to 24 schools and didn't get an interview. The second time I applied to 21, got 7 interviews and 1 accceptance. Interestingly, I was the very last person interviewed on the very last day of interviewing for the year, at the school that accepted me, and I was accepted the Weds. before orientation. Its really drives you crazy. The reason I'm telling you guys this is so you realize you are still in the game. :thumbup:

                          oh man thank you for starting this thread. i was feeling really really really depressed about this whole process. it's comforting to know that others are in the same boat... although i wish we were all doing better.

                          So here's what i have:

                          - applied to 12, got secondaries from 11.
                          - missed the deadline for 4 of the schools (didn't know UC's had 30 day deadline... got secondaries over the summer when i was working full time in lab and had 2 other jobs on campus, so exhausted :sleep: ). yeah i know, excuses excuses. :scared: called UCLA and got extension to 12/30. :eek:

                          1 interview, awaiting decision
                          3 interviews upcoming in the next couple of weeks
                          no word from other schools, assuming they're just rejections, or at best interviews for waitlist spots.

                          WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!?!?! :eek:

                            keep the faith everyone

                            well with those schools you must have good stats; so you shouldn't worry, unless you only applied to reach schools :luck:

                              Someone on a post-interview hold can still be admitted into the class before an official waitlist is declared.

                              Once you're put on the waitlist, you will be waiting for a decision at that school until the admissions committee finalizes the waitlist and decides to begin re-reviewing applications. Someone on a hold list can still be admitted into the class before an official waitlist is declared. Schools claim to review apps from those put on hold each time the committee meets, but I'm not sure if there's much truth to this.
