That's e
Ok cool. My friend also got the phone call and an email but she already committed to a med school. I’m sure they really want you (and everyone else they invited to apply) but if they were really offering an acceptance, you shouldn’t have even applied/had to pay. I hope they’re not trying to just get a lot of ppl to apply because of the application fee. I’ll pray for us all.

None of us are guaranteed a spot at any institution. I don't know of many programs that will let you bypass a process that everyone else has to go through simply because they're interested in you as an applicant, and even if they do allow it that's up to them at their discretion. They don't owe us anything. I'm just thankful for the opportunity to even apply to the program honestly. We could all easily be back at square one and not have any options. The vibe on this thread is kind of annoying.

Typically it's all good vibes. I think around this time many of us are just stressed/worried.

Well I could be wrong, but I don’t think that anyone here has that mindset. I think that with most linkages, an interview is required, although at some places, it’s more of a formality. I think that that’s what other posters are referring to, especially since people who have done the program in the past alluded that that’s what happens with this program

Lol people are rightfully stressed and frustrated due to lack of communication and inconsistent information. The process has changed probably 4 times since the rest of us received invitations on March 25th. We didn't receive a personal call urging us to apply. Based on previous program years, the qualifying MHS students didn't have to interview for the med school and also knew of acceptance into the MHS program in late April. It's a life and career changing decision so people are on edge. Moreover, I'm not sure if you peeped in the 22 pages of this thread but we've been cracking hella jokes.

But anyways, I'm about to make some bbq chicken anyone wants some?

Maybe it’s just cause I needed a laugh, or a distraction, but that “moreover” just sent me! :rofl:

I get the stress part. I’m in the same process as the rest of y’all, but the disparaging remarks are annoying as hell. We’re trying to get into their school, they’re not the ones coming to us begging us to apply. If things change from previous years it is what it is. Why complain about things you can’t change? They extended us an opportunity to still get into their school at the end of the day and that’s a blessing. If someone isn’t satisfied then just re-enter the application cycle and apply to a different school. I’m just saying all this complaining about how they’re doing things is useless and just promotes stress.

How about that last GOT episode y’all?! I’m still shook

Don't get me started on game of thrones. I'm about disappointed on the execution of the different characters story lines. They were way too rushed for 7 seasons of buildup!!

Great cinematography though. I have to give that to them. But as far as character story line endings they dropped the ball. (IMO)

If you understand the stress, then you understand the need for people wanting to express how they feel amongst individuals who are going through the same, somewhat like group therapy. I understand complaining does not help and encourages stress, but adding your additional complaints about their complaints is even more useless.

Either promote positive thoughts like people like Kojo have been doing throughout this thread or unfollow, man.

Did you know the showrunners had the opportunity to make seasons 7 and 8 longer? HBO was going to throw so much money at them but they turned it down :1cry:

Your statement literally makes no sense. How are you telling me to unfollow because I’m complaining about negative and useless comments but don’t have that same energy for the original comments themselves. You just be talkin huh? o_O

Yeah beacuse they rushed to finish it to work on the star wars movie. So lame. Because storyline execution wise any cinematography fan can see that they are rushing the ending. Although the cinematography itself is still dope.

Okay let's just chill out with the tit for tat stuff y'all and get back to uplifting each other please. I wanted this thread to be on some positive vibes. As future professionals of compassion and medicine we can keep it on a positive tip.

Lol your right , a lot of people really worry themselves on here. However , I am able to understand their behavior/attitude because to most this is their “best shot” at sneaking into a med school especially if you’ve been denied at all other schools without going the miserable Caribbean route.

But more importantly that’s why we are all here to throw information that may decrease this tension/stress and joke over how whack their communication skills are.

This is a kinda switch up but what other programs are y'all applying for (besides re applying to med school) as in other programs similar to this one that may have linkage etc? Any good ones?

I applied to Wayne state, and cal med cause they invited me to apply. I’m really only interested in Meharry though. I was going to use another acceptance as leverage for Meharry if I ended up getting one from the other two.
