Just wanted to share my story/news. . . I applied to 18 schools with a 29S and 28Q MCAT as well as a 3.73gpa. I received a notice from Albany Med back in October or November that informed me of my status at the time- "hold for interview". Well, I had pretty much written that off as a rejection until they sent me a letter in January offering me an invitation to interview on Feb 8th. Just today, I received word that I have been accepted. Now mind you, not only did I not think that I had a chance at Albany; but also, I was beginning to think that I would not get into medical school at all this year. I've had 6 other interviews. Of those, I've been waitlisted at 2 and heard nothing from the rest. I even interviewed at Chicago Med in October and, to this date, have not heard a thing. So, moral of the story. . . It's not over 'till it's over. Good Luck all.
