Anyone know which schools are known to have silent rejections (i.e. - no communication for multiple months means you were rejected)?
Particularly, any re-applicants want to suggest some schools that never got back to them one way or another? Thanks!

-right now, the only school that I've noticed others point out multiple times is

1) Jefferson

Rush won't even give you a phone number to call their admissions office.
That's as silent as they come.

Pretty sure I saw on the secondary that they won't tell you anything if they don't want you (at least, for non-MSTP).

Oh I don't know...I haven't heard a peep from them since I was complete. I guess this just could be a "we don't reject people until may" in which case, feel free to take it off if you wantt

Emory does let us know that either we hear positive news or nothing until march...
My fault then. I know a couple people who didnt hear anything from them at all last year. You can take it off.

Maybe its a common theme with the UCs? UCLA hasnt even given me a secondary yet, and it says nothing on my status page (its completely blank). I can only assume that its a rejection (they had my app in July). When i stayed with a student host in Chicago, he mentioned that he applied to UCSD and didnt get his rejection letter til a few months AFTER he started medical school in chicago.

I applied to UC Davis that year also, and they got back to me. I thought the UCI thing was just a fluke, but it could be a UC-wide thing... They certainly do take their sweet ol' time...I'm still waiting to see a status-change at UCI this time around too, but it's getting late, so I'm thinking I'm going to be in Ohio 4 more years before I can get back to Cali. :cool:

Technically you can think of it as 2.5 months cuz all medical schools take 2 weeks off at least during the winterbreak. But that's interesting. Is brown rolling or nonrolling?
I'm pretty sure it's rolling.

Brown describes itself as "slow rolling" because their class size is so small. So yes, it's rolling, but many many people are deferred or wait-listed. At least that was my impression from the Dean.

Tufts is not silent, they just don't give out their rejection letters for another couple of months They had interviews up until late april last year, and I knew of people getting interview invites as late as march/early april.

I'm thinking that UCLA might be one because I've been complete for a very long time, and I haven't heard of any rejections going out yet. Thoughts?

i think we should change it to schools that actually never send you rejection letter ever like Jeff. I don't know how many schools will cut out. I understand that some schools don't communicate what our status is, but there aren't really silent reject schools. upenn for example tells us that we are on hold and stuff

Add University of Vermont. I ended up finding out from the status page with no email or letter. I am glad anyway though because Vermont is FREEZING:eek:

I just checked my status because of this post - rejection. Oh well. :sleep:
Also, speaking of freezing, I'm in Chicago and its been at 0 degrees F or lower for the past week with snow falling every day.

Checked my status - rejected. Its good to know I guess. Best skiing location of any med school, so I am kind of disappointed.

Rush and Northwestern both send rejection emails. I know because I was rejected by both 2 years ago. Rush sent mine on March 26 and Northwestern sent mine on January 8.

Also, SUNY Buffalo rejected me about a month ago, via status and letter.

How depressing it was to write all that. lol

Isnt it too early to be anticipating a silent rejection? Most schools still have interviews to give.
