Has anyone else had terrible experiences on the phone with JMC? I always get the same lady and she's rude and completely unhelpful.
The news I heard last week, as I am sure FFF will confirm, wasnt very promising as Dr. Brooks explained the list is not moving like it has in past years and they have taken far fewer so far than they typically do by this time. She hopes a ripple effect opens some spots in a few weeks but beyond that isnt sure what is going to happen.
In other words, the day to day worrying is useless, so do yourselves a favor instead of asking every day if there is news, its easier not to worry about it so much and keep improving yourself to make yourself a stronger applicant. We probably wont be hearing much until at least the middle of the month
Thanks Luigi! Where are you planning on going instead of JEFF?
Hey guys, I've never posted before, but I'm HP at jeff as well with no acceptances elsewhere. I wanted to know if anyone knew why some people talk with Dr. Brooks and others talk with Dr. Callahan. I didn't even know who Dr. Brooks was until everyone on this thread started talking about her. Anybody have any clarifications?
Thanks, good luck to all. Hopefully we'll get some movement shortly.
i dont think there has been really any movement since a few people got off in May. Luckily I got off the WL at another school I wanted to go to, but im interested to see if Jeff will take anyone off. I guess they put on such a good show that everyone who got accepted wants to go there.
...any one get the call after some of these people have withdrawn recently???
nope. none at all. I wrote Dr. Brooks on monday and she said that they havent had any movement at all recently. She still hinks its possible that a few might come off but even her email was much less positive than before. I think that while we can hold onto some hope, there really isnt much of a chance anymore. Anyone else agree?
Has everyone pretty much given up hope at this point?? Orientation starts in a couple weeks. Have people started to submit their applications for next cycle already or are you planing on waiting it out a little longer??
