Partly it's getting to the time of year when people are getting panicked with the process as the clock winds down to the buzzer, partly there seems to have been a big influx of new member instigators with suspect motives.

I think the consensus is emotional eating. :) I'm making vanilla cupcakes, myself.

The arguments that tend to spur up around this time are inevitable, so long as they are within reason, they'll be bound to exist. Think of this place as a dysfunction (or functional?) family with its ups and downs. Around this time, would be the equivalence of the holiday months when everyone is up in arms against fellow shoppers lol.

Mike, I don't know how to tell you this... you might be pregnant.

You want to drown in strawberry ice cream.

I'm sorry.

Nah, I think he's safe. Now, if he wanted to be smothered in strawberry ice cream and pickles...

Ugh gross mix. Once when I was pregnant, I was sitting at a stoplight when I noticed a restaurant advertisement, "Chicken wings and Doughnuts". I actually had to open the car door and vomit on the road.

Y'know...Strawberry ice cream used to be my favorite. I haven't had it in YEARS. (Became a bigger fan of coffee ice cream.) I think I may have to enjoy some, soon!

Agree. How can you NOT be in at least Arizona? Don't they limit their apps to residents exclusively?

So uh... where is this place.

Cause I love chicken wings and I love doughnuts.

Think about it. Chicken doughnuts. F-ing brilliant

My Hockey team played tournaments in Upland, Ca and just down the street from that rink there is a great subway shop called route 66 subs... but that is not the point, right next to it there is a chinese food and doughnuts place... enough said

man. why, oh why does U of A not take OOSers

I think that Florida and Mississippi have the same sort of policy. Correct me if I'm wrong. Of course there are many others that might as well take only in-staters because oos matriculants are so rare.

I feel I've done extremely well at all my interviews.

However, my UA Phoenix interview was with a PhD, and he just wanted me to talk about my research, and that was all he cared about, so I wasn't really too happy with that one, since I'm doing MD and not MD/PhD, so I don't know how useful me describing the intracacies of my research will be to the Adcom.

SUNY, it really wasn't an interview, my interviewers just talked about the school with me for an hour each, and we talked primarily about skiing and the weather for whatever reason, probably because I missed the scheduled intervew date due to a weather-based flight cancellation.

Mayo was the only school where I really discussed my ECs, and I really feel as if those were my best interviews.

So to answer your question, yes I did, however, unless I get an interview at the school, I won't be given the opportunity to "shine" in that sense :(

And the UofA doesn't really take out of staters, with the exception of Montana and a few other states, due to the state legislature's desire to increase AZ's physician retention rates, since the idea is that students that come from AZ will become doctors that stay in AZ.
