    hey all so last year i interviewed at NW and this year i got rejected before the secondary??? i dont get it? i just had to vent ... anyways when i went there they were suuuper snooteey... i come from a school where a little dirt and ghetto factor is all part of the charm.. and a bum on the street is your friend.. I dont care for the capitolistic bourgeoisie environment of northwestern . At this point its time to keep it real.. go bears.. we stuffed michigan state.. this year we take the AXXXXX to stanfurd!!!!!

    My $0.02 on why Northwestern stinks:
    They did not even wait to see my August MCAT scores (I retook) before rejecting me! :mad:
    At least I was saved $90 or however much their secondary costs....

    I have to admit to *still* being very confused by this whole screening deal - I mean I don't even have an MCAT score yet, so why do places like NW and Pitt, who spsedly screen send me 2ndaries?? I realize the MCAT score is not the whole story, but really I would have preferred them to wait on it if they might dump me based on it anyway....

    maybe you should call them to see why you didn't get a secondary? i interviewed there last year as well and i just got one. did you strengthen your application for this year? i just find it strange that you weren't even considered for an interview this year.

    Hmm, thanks :) I'm certainly glad someone thinks so - apparently Baylor disagrees tho' as they rejected me today. C'est la vie!

    When Northwestern beats Duke in basketball, then we'll care about their athletic teams. :) :) :)

    I cheer for Anyone But Carolina, but am a Duke fan at heart. :)

    Nonetheless, it's sad to see the state of Tarheel basketball these days. I feel for them...but not too much... :)

    see when i got rejected last year i called and called and called to set up an appointment with the dean and never got called back... the jerks... so then i finally got hold of the secretary who i had left like 10 messages with.. she was like oh the dean wont talk to you.. she is getting ready for next year!!!! so i have no idea what went wrong!!!! honestly i dont think THEY are worth MY time... this year its time to take this medical school bull by the horns ... last year my mentality was like a little puppy licking the feet of the medical scholls... bad mentality... why?? cause it lowers your self esteem.... this year .... its time to get a little jiggy and work adcoms like a MACHINE!!!!!! screw NW!!!

    calipaww,
    why don't you email the dean directly? if you know the name, you can easily do a directory search on the school's website. they usually give email addresses if not more...

    worth a shot!

    Yeah, and it's not like beating Duke in football is such an amazing feat.

    Go Blue Devils! I'm getting excited about basketball season already. Too bad I cant go to the games anymore... :(

    (Off the subject, sorry.)
