    they were totally unaccomodating with me when i called to see if i could find out about a decision sooner since i'm gonna be interviewing in the area.

    "you have to wait till the committee emails you."

    hmph!

    I got an interview request from them around mid-October, for an interview in early December. I submitted their secondary around the first week of Sept.

    I hear ya I have actually called them a few times and since my app was complteted during the first week of September I feel like I have the right to ask bc they hav not emialed or snail mailed even anything to let me know the app was complete. Forever, I thought i was missing something. I dunno, maybe the other schools are just too accomodating so the ones that dont do anything seem like bastards.

    For the money I paid them (what was Jefferson, $75?), their admissions office owes me a little courtesy. Jefferson is on my list of "unfriendly on the phone" schools.

    Let's see...a few rude schools:

    Harvard makes you listen to a horribly long recorded message before you can talk to a human...

    Pritzker makes it hard to find their admissions office number.

    Someone at Einstein told me to "hang on pal" when I checked on the status of my application

    Jefferson told me that my application was complete about a month ago (secondary and LORs), and then when I called recently to check on my application they told me that my app was not complete - they said that I was missing a number of LORs. I asked which LORs, and the guy told me that he'd have to check and get back to me later that day. He didn't. Two days later I called, he was out of the office, and I explained the situation. A lady asked to call me back in 30 minutes....she called back an hour later, and told me which LOR they had. When I explained that I was told that my application was "complete" over a month ago, they just told me to resent my LORs. NEVER did they even appologize for loosing my LORs. And NEVER did they appologize for the miscommunication.



    On the bright side...I've had good experiences with the follwoing schools:
    U of MN (polite)
    Wake Forest (very polite)
    Mount Sinai (the lady was nice enough to officially complete my application over the phone)

    So far Jeff has only interviewed 100 of about 5000 applicants, so I don't think it's time to worry yet. The admissions staff isn't great, but the rest of the staff is, and once you are in you never have to deal with them again.

    I interviewed in January, was waitlisted within about 2 weeks, and was accepted from the wait list April 19th. It's a long process. Hang in there.

    I sent in my secondary in August and heard back from them in early September. My interview was on Sept. 30 and I was accepted on Nov. 6th (by a phone call.) So, while it takes awhile for them to read your application and schedule an interview with people, they are pretty on the ball after the interview. Hope this helps......

    Sure....


    I got an 11,11,13 on the MCAT and I have about a 3.93 GPA(but it is at a state school. Not the easiest school around, but far from the most demanding.)
