I got back from doing HW and checked my email. I noticed an email from Duke and thought it was a rejection email.

Instead, 1 day after my B-day I got an invite. YAY!!!!!

I just can't contain myself so I had to start a new thread.

thanks. This was completely unexpected. I had institutional action in my early undergrad so I figured it had basically killed my chances at the top schools. I also have no research. It's a long story but i wasn't initally planning on going to medical school because I didn't think I could hack it.

congratulations fiddler, i hope you get an acceptance. is it your top choice school?
i don't know why you thought you would get rejected straght off, you have great stats. they should be so lucky to have you come to their school.

Thanks guys. I am still reeling from this.

the profile is missing my total cumulative avg. With my first undergrad the GPA is more like 3.7 - 3.8. and schools apparently don't like insitutional action.

I was suspended with immediate reinstatement then kicked out with immediate reinstatement. I really had problems during my first undergrad experience.

I never got a complete notice! lol.

I sent in the secondary and that was all I heard from them. Then the invite. I had called them but couldn't get through.

I hadn't gotten around to asking them about it. I checked their website and it said I was complete so i have no idea when it happened.

Hi Damota,

I keep getting you and Dakota confused because of your similar names!

Everytime I see you guys' avatar, I keep wondering why the big change in avatars. lol.

I think I got you guys sorted out now. You are DaMota and he's Dakota, right?

Thanks guys

I felt the pressure lift from my shoulders after the interview at Drexel. With some of the stories here, it sounded like it could have been bad but it was a really good experience.

Good luck to everyone. it looks like just about everyone is getting interviews.
