    I just wanted to share my latest thought. I used to think that applying early was great because the commitee would review your application many times before deciding. This past week, with no mail and no word from med schools, I thought "good, they're still considering me" since other people have posted rejections from them. THEN I realized, that for me, since most of my apps were not complete till Nov and early Dec, no news is not good news. I want news!!! Schools probably haven't even looked at my application yet (or not that much), so of course I'm not hearing anyhting. :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Sorry, I had to vent, now I'm done

    Here's my list. All were complete mid-Sept. I also was an August '00 MCATer.

    USC- slow ass people
    MCW- "You should hear something shortly" - that was a month ago
    Loma Linda- Whoops, I actually put down that I still drink alcohol and smoke a little marijuana
    Pitt- On the cusp of being a solid school, should get rejection within a few weeks
    Tulane- I need to be at a place like this, it reminds me of home :D
    Finch- I thought this was my safety, but they show no love to me
    SLU- hmm... not sure what to make of this place. Got an out-of-office email message a couple of weeks ago, said they wouldn't be back for 2 weeks. I thought that it was funny that in their secondary they emphasize "good communication" between applicants and admissions office

    question.....if you take the august mcat, can you still submit your amcas in july and submit secondaries before you get your scores? like med schools would have everything except your scores? I didn't know this...maybe if i dont get in i'll take the aug mcat...and since i already took it once, i could still get interviews before the new scores are reported

    There's hope out there!

    Keep your head up guys. In the last 3 days I've heard from Cornell, Northwestern, and Emory. I was an APRIL mcater and I have been complete at the schools for OVER 4 months.

    I think that schools are just wayyyy behind. Hopefully they'll extend some of their deadlines.

    August MCATer. Some of these completion dates are guesses, as schools didn't really notify us when they got around to getting the scores in the file, if they'd previously notified us everything else was complete.

    Boston (10/15)
    George Washington (11/19) - on "hold"
    U. Michigan (10/24)
    U. Va (Oct/Nov)
    Wash U. (Oct/Nov)

    E'01, too bad about NYU. Best of luck with the rest of your list! :)
