...well it's actually my sixth, but my first this year, and my second at Tufts.

I wonder if anyone gets rejected twice post-interview from medical schools.... we'll see.

congrats sham!!! I know it probably doesnt mean much, but for me, a first (and hopefully only time) applicant, you provide valuable insight into the whole process. I am sure you will be great! Best of luck.

Thanks again, fellows! Tufts does not screen. I suggest you call and make sure everything's okay logistically.

Shamalama-mama: we too have been following your saga since last summer...
Pa says, "tell him not to worry, there is an ass to cover every seat" (good advice when you stop to think about it)
and Ma says "embrace humility, eschew arrogance during your interviews"
Go get 'em! , and well, good luck sweetie!

Thanks Ma! and everyone else. Ma! If you've been following my saga since last summer (starting with alias 'Olympicgold'), you probably can imagine the sort of strain this process has on one's mentality. I need some not-my-motherly advice: how do I cope with more waiting? That I received an interview doesn't guarantee anything. Just look at what happened last year! I swear, being a reapplicant made me a little screwy and it's gonna be tough to go through it again. Plus, being a post-interview reject five times over does a number on a man's security and pride. During interviews, how should I answer the imminent question: why do you think you're not in medical school? I have some ideas, but I feel like I'm gonna twitch and stutter, "EEK! err, b-b-ba-bad l-l-lu-luck?"

There was a four hour period of elation after I received an invitation to interview at a medical school I really care about. Then reality set in...there aint no guarantees in life. Still there's lots o' work ahead.

Where on the USNEWS web site did you find that info. I can't find it. I too have interviews again at schools that rejected me the first time ( one was a waitlist). Hope we have better luck this time.

great school (a bit biased here:D ), congratulations! I can tell you from talking to my classmates who were reapplicants (a sizeable #, including self) that Tufts looks very favorably on reapplicants who are able to get up and go for it again. let me know if you need anything; I am very happy to have finished a 4-exam block on Friday and to have gotten a LOT of refreshing sleep this weekend! good luck, though you won't need it..

Tufts is currently on EDT, which is 3 hours ahead of Arizona Standard Time at present and will be 2 hours ahead of AST when EST begins sometime in October. just thought I would point that out..
