It's interesting how all of my applications submitted after october have given me no interview where as most of my application submitted before october has yielded an interview. Odd.
All my apps were submitted after October and I was lucky enough to get 4 interviews. As far as the cost goes....it's costing me my sanityChankovsky said:It's interesting how all of my applications submitted after october have given me no interview where as most of my application submitted before october has yielded an interview.

Despite submitting my AMCAS on Sept. 28 and completing secondaries at of very near their deadlines, I've somehow been "blessed" with several interview at some really good school (Mayo, JHU, D'Mouth, etc.) However, the interviews are so late in the game, that I suspect for many of these schools we are essentially interviewing for a waitlist position, or we are serving as a sort of "foil" for some other previous interviewee that is sort of "on the fence" as far as the Adcam is concerned. As such, unless we late interviewees dazzle the Adcaom particularly brilliantly, the default position will probably be that the previous interviewee gets the prize.
Just my take, feel free to flame away!
Even though I invited the flames, I can't help but respond...getunconcsious said:So you automatically assume that you had better reasons than anyone else for filling out amcas late? How very pretentious of you. And what are these "adcams" of which you speak?

It's not presumptuousness that brings me to the conclusions I've drawn, but empirical evidence, health dose of realism, and a willingness to accept what becomes ever-more obvious.
Speaking of obvious: Adcams=Adcoms= Admissions Committees
It was a obviously typo, which should be obvious. Obviously, perhaps if you laid off some of the self-prescribed medicinals, you would not be so oblivious to the obvious. Did I say obvious??
