    Yeah, they seem to really be into making us wait despite their claims to be rolling--I interviewed in Oct. and am still waiting. :)

    I remember trying to schedule an interview with Rachel at MSSM office and asking her for an earlier date. She said "why do you want an earlier date, we are NOT rolling, so it is not going to matter."

    I don't know if this helps any of you but I believe they may decide on one's file but will send out acceptances in a bunch at a later date.

Same with one other guy from this board I believe. From what I understand they are rolling. Sinai is a GREAT school but most likely I will be withdrawing depending on Financial Aid matters. Hopefully this will help some of you out :)

    I feel like I should be hearing from Sinai these days since I interviewed on Feb. 5. The waiting is killing me. I have already heard two people saying that they have recieved an acceptance these couple of days. Wait Wait Wait... I hope there is good new for me soon.

I think there were only two sheets of paper in it. One of congratulations and then one to send back if you want to hold your spot in the class. (I BELIEVE only 2 sheets..might have been three) :)

    Choker I guess we are on the same boat but I interviewed a bit later. I am really hoping some letter will pop up any day now. I haven't checked today but I think it will just be another day of junk mail.

    Tomorrow will be four weeks post interveiw for me so tell what the deal is too. I personally think it will take six weeks but anything earlier would be nice.

    Thanks Caliboy and Choker! Yours is gonna come soon A :) I"m actually at work - my mum called me to say that a letter arrived. I was like whatever - I thought it was something work-related (I work at Sinai and they are doing some big time lay-offs etc), plus the envelope didn't say Office of Admissions - just Mount Sinai Hospital/Medical Center. So then my mum read the letter to me and said that it was a big envelope. I need to let them know by Monday!

    I have my fingers crossed for you Ardavan!!

    alright, while im happy for e'01 (even though i know she will prob. take the scholarship at einstein_ at least i would), i am now officially nervous. i dont know the process sinai uses, but i know it sucks. very few people have gotten in, and they've heard anywhere from 2 weeks to a few months after interveiw, and they appear to be notified in no particular order. they also have no clue as to a schdule of when decisions are going out. this is pretty unexcusable and i am pretty pissed off.

    -really really disorganized.

    -sorry, im ranting, but im nervous because i live in nyc and i interviewed with e'01.

    For whatever it's worth, I interviewed Jan 11 and haven't heard yet. I guess I'd be nervous if I was still considering going there <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> :D .

    I notice their unorganized pattern also!! They seem to have a very weird system of accepting people. But I believe that if it is an acceptance letter it should arrive within six weeks. Has anyone been waitlisted or rejected post inteview at Sinai???? I haven't heard any yet.

    would have to visit both. while i feel pitt is a much stronger school, better clinical and preclinical training and more opportunities, (also w/o sinai's monster debt), i am leaning towards sinai simply because of location. i have been a new yorker all my life and have gone to school in the NYC for the past 10 years. i cant imagine leaving. besides, i really want to stay close to my family. so i would have to say sinai, but would visit both again.

    has anyone been wating as long as me (post-interview)? I've been waiting about 11 weeks. I called them after 4 weeks. They said my file has not been reviewed yet.

    Thanks for the congrats vinsanity :) This whole process is random. I mean I had a friend who interviewed late december and hear in Jan from Sinai. I wasn't expecting to get in at all - I had my secondary in back from July and even in October they were claiming they had none of my AMCAS application. I just think the whole thing is a bit disorganized and that there is no discernable pattern. Just hang in there Choker!

    Dr. Kermit - the Einstein scholarhship is a big factor in wanting to go to there but that might be all the aid I receive from them - who knows. I figure I'd get my financial aid packages from the two and then make my final choice

    Does anyone know how Sinai comes to make a decision on a applicant?? They seem to be so random that you can't even predict when a letter will arrive.
