So I still have not heard from several of the applications I have out there....so basically I am wondering if there is any hope left for those schools. Have any of you guys gotten any recent interview invites? I'm sure I'm not the only one out there still wondering/hoping!

Hey I am still waiting on three schools... who knows. I am very tired at this point. I stare at the sdn screen so much all day that my eyes hurt. I never thought I would say this but I give up.
Have you been accepted anywhere. I have been accepted, not at my first choice but nonetheless... I'm can't torture myself like this anymore.

Don't give up hope guys. I'm still waiting for 7 schools. There have been and will continue to be interview invites for many schools throughout march and probably into april. For God's sake, back off the screen for a bit (I'm stuck focusing on the screen for work, oh well). Go have a drink. Go to the gym. Get some sex. There's plenty of better things out there.

No worries :D

There are many stories out there of late interviewers getting in. Remember it is not over until it is over. Keep ur head up and remember u can always reapply......this whole process will only make u stronger.

I also haven't heard from 3 schools (Columbia, Yale, Penn) but I know that they are done sending out invites so I'm just waiting for the letters to start pouring in.

ok... You are right... But you being in worse condition does not make me feel better. It does make me realize I should be happy with what I do have. I really hope you hear some good news soon.
btw - I actually did not apply to med school about two years ago because I was so afraid of the rejection... so I went and got an MS to increase the odds I would be accepted somewhere... I think that if you don't get in somewhere you could reapply after getting your MS (if that is what you decide to do...) But here's hoping you won't even have to think about doing that! -LORIN

Let's not lose total hope yet... I think a few of us may be able to squeeze out an invite or two... we'll see I guess

Hey... when did this thread hit the downward spiral? The absolute worst thing to do right now is say it's all lost. Noone's out yet, it's way to early for that. So just strap on that ****-eating grin, and buck up, you little troopers!

Haha! Thanks! I started this thread to make me feel better, but so far it's done the opposite! Where are these interview invites??? I know they have to be out there somewhere!

I wish I could give you some concrete evidence. All I have are speculations. I am still waiting to hear back from 7 schools, most of which have sent me a letter saying I'm still under review. I've completed most of these sec apps back in October, so I'm lead to believe I keep getting pushed back for interview openings. That's the only hope I have, but I'm keepin' it alive.

By the way, the school's I'm waiting for are (Loyola, Jefferson, Drexel, NYMC, Penn State, Temple, VCU)

I received an interview invitation from Drexel for May 3rd!
That seems a bit too late, but I haven't received a single acceptance letter yet so I guess it's better than nothing...

I got an invite to NYMC on March 1st - email - I got a date for April 11th.

Also got an invite to Penn State on March 3rd - phone and email - interview date is March 11th.

Don't lose hope guys. I had practically written off these schools, but it's still possible to get interviews.

BTW, I sent Penn an update letter outlining which of their programs I liked and why I was a good candidate and then I was given an interview within the week following my letter. I was also on the "continue to review" pool.

Good Luck.

Maybe starting this thread did me some good. I just found out today that I got an interview with SLU. It was by snail mail and dated 3/2/05. One less school I am waiting to hear from!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed, too. I'm on ONE waitlist.
I just appealed one school for an interview- read the fine print and found I could, so since I have nothing to lose, I'm going big.
I am NOT taking the MCAT again. I'd rather eat poisonous live insects and be forced to watch Maury Povich on repeat for 72 hours straight.

Still waiting on three, and they're top 10 - how do you think *I* feel about my chances
But, as I've learned, *anything* is possible, and Stanford said they'd interview through the end of April. Same with Davis. Both said "no news is good news, have some faith" when I called.

Stop obsessing everyone, go have a beer. Or whatever.
Back to strapping snowboarders onto backboards and splinting fractured wrists... :eek:

I called up Tufts and Jefferson yesterday and both gave me specific dates that they're last interview invites will go out by and they were both in mid-April with the actual last day of interviews being in the end of April. I'm not sure how much hope I have of getting one at either school, but nonetheless, for those of you also waiting for them, hope this helps. :)

Penn State is still giving out interviews. I just got a call today, with slots available on 3/14 and 3/21. Took the 14th but they said they're interviewing until the end of March. To think I had given up hope for another invite. :cool:

Ooh, I want one too! By snail mail you say? I had about written off my mailbox as only a source of bad news. Heck, I'd be happy if I could just move all my schools into a definite category, I tire of waiting.

just got a call from Loyola on Friday - they said the last Saturday intv. date was 3/19, and I'm tentatively scheduled for 3/22 - not sure how far out they'll let me go but I can post it here when I talk to them on Monday and try for a first week of April date

I also just received an interview invite from Stanford last week for late March. I know there were quite a few others in the same boat w/Stanford. We had all given up hope. One of my friends who's a first year there said that many of her current classmates had interviews this late. So....don't give up hope! :)

Sorry for the lateness of my reply...I received the interview invite by snail mail after emailing James Rathmell (Interim Associate Dean for Admissions) and Tiffany Delaney (Interim Director of Admissions) about my "significant interest" in their school. I sent the emails around the middle of February. I suggest you do the same, and explain how interested you really are (i.e. if it's one of the--if not THE--top choice for you).

You seem really interested in UVM, and your previous posts about UVM still giving out interviews gave me the inspiration to write those emails last month. So best of luck, I can tell you truly deserve an interview there.

Alright, the Loyola interview will be on 4/5 - they at least go that late for anyone who's curious!

Came home to be greeted with a Davis invite via email. Offered Monday
March 21, Thursday March 24, Monday March 28 as Thursday March 31 possible interview dates. Email said these are the REMAINING interview dates.

Anyone know how UC Davis' class is shaping up? Just wondering if they've already given enough offers to fill their class (probably have).

I just got mail from RFUMS... open interview dates in MAY!!! I had given up on them, and I'm shocked to get this now.

I have yet to be accepted anywhere, so I'm def. planning on going... not sure if an interview so late in the season is a lost cause?? Am i interviewing for a wait list seat, or an open seat?

Anyone know anything? It was discouraging to see RFUMS so prominently featured on the "Schools i would not apply to again" thread :(

I'd be happy to hear from anyone about this?
