    i just checked my status and it still says "invited for interview" even though my interview was on the 3rd. hopefully, that means i got in? it probably means that they haven't made a decision, but :xf: we'll see. wish me luck! :luck:

    that probably is a good sign! im crossing my fingers for you! ill spill the beans and tell u that i interviewed there a week ago and they just updated my aadsas (which was pretty fast). if u read another thread, some people interviewed early december and their status changed from interview to rejection.

    if u don't see /hear anything, i'd say give them a call. =)

    I am sorry about my random questions, but how do you find that know you have been waitlisted? Also, when did you interview?

    I have an interview at Dec 12, and my AADSAS is blank (it has been blank from the beginning).

    Is this assumed to be a good sign?

    that's weird it's been blank since the beginning?...i would give nova another week to go over ur interview/application before finding out ur status. they never pick up their phone, so call them 8am eastern time.

    According to predents they accepted at least one person that inteviewed post dec 1st. Guess the rest of us will just have to wait till jan 15 when they know how many more acceptances they can give out.

    No rejection yet. :xf::xf:

    Mine still says "invited for interview." I am hoping that this is good because this is most likely my last chance this cycle and next cycle.

    Interviewed early December and AADSAS still reports

    "Invited for interview"

    I believe I suggested that I would shower in gasoline with a cigarette just to get an interview at Nova.

    That was before I interviewed. When it comes to an acceptance, I would get a job as a logger, just to cut down the tree that will ultimately become the paper that a Nova acceptance letter is printed on.

    I interviewed on Dec 3rd and was told during my interview that I would be notified by between Jan 1st-Jan15th. I recieved a phone call from Dean Lippman personally on Dec 18th after an adcomm meeting to let me know that I was accepted, and I recieved the letter two days later!

    I interviewed in early December as well and was told by Dr. Lippman I would hear in "mid-January".

    No contact as of yet but I am hoping for a similar phone call.

    When did you interview?!?!

    Who were you?? I was the fat guy with dark hair and I sat over against the wall on the left side of the room as you enter.

    Oh, and good luck to you as well. I don't know about you, but I don't think I have ever wanted anything so bad in my life. I am trying not to get my hopes to high because if I do and I don't get in then I will feel about as terrible as anyone can feel.

    I wish you the best of luck!!!!

    Hey everyone,
    I had my interview on Nov 14th and was told that the second round of acceptances would be going out today. I called a little while ago and they said that they're are not having the meeting for admissions until next week.

    As bad as it may sound, another week of waiting is better than knowing today. At least I can hold out hope for one more week.:luck::luck:

    did anyone find out what day next week they will be meeting? I was told that we should be hearing the 15th when I called in early december. I've been calling to find out when we can really expect to hear but no one has answered the phone the last few days. This is driving me nuts!

    No clue. I think your best bet is to call tomorrow or just wait the week out to see what happens.
