    This was brought up in one of the Yale threads. The concensus on there, and a current Yale med student confirmed, was that it doesn't really mean anything. The student that posted said that he got an interview in mid January, interviewed and was accepted right off. So until you get that, "We regret to inform you..." letter, there's no way to tell.

    I finished all of my apps by the end of August (except for Dartmouth, that was mid-sept, didn't decide to apply until late). I got an interview invite yesterday from Dartmouth, and one today from Columbia. So, don't give up hope on those schools. I figured I was done getting invites, but fortunately that hasn't been the case.

    Anyone else going to be at Columbia on the 4th of Jan or at Dartmouth on the 26th?

    Any suggestions on places to stay near Dartmouth or Columbia?

    I don't believe so. Crickets from Cornell here, too. Didn't they say something about communicating rejections beginning in December?

    I don't know what you mean. They’ve been conducting interviews for months now, they just don't give people who interviewed the decision until March.

    Just got an invite from Dartmouth after being complete for 4+ months. Is admissions at DMS currently a "still-a-lotta-vacancies-rolling" or a "fight-for-the-waitlist-rolling?"

    I interviewed 11/29 and got accepted last week. I'm not sure what that means about how many they've accepted at this point, but it is certainly progressing.
