    i'm not quite sure what this date is for. i have heard back from all of the schools i've interviewed at. I even got off the wake waitlist.

    but good luck anyway!

    I've never heard of a March 29th date in regard to medical school.

    I just looked it up on the AAMC website. Here is what they said.

    By March 15 of the year of matriculation, each school of medicine should have issued a number of acceptances at least equal to the size of its first-year entering class. [Note: For the 2002 entering class this date has been extended to March 29, 2002.]

    My big question being which schools are not full and will they be doing some massive accepting tommorow? I sure hope so. :)

    From the aamc.org site:

    "By March 15 of the year of matriculation, each school of medicine should have issued a number of acceptances at least equal to the size of its first-year entering class. [Note: For the 2002 entering class this date has been extended to March 29, 2002.]"

    Remember that March 15 date? Well, a few weeks ago another poster on SDN updated us all that March 15 deadline has been extended to March 29...I assumed that you all knew that! I guess I was wrong. :p Anyways, yeah, tomorrow is the day that all schools must have sent out enough acceptances to fill their incoming class, which is why many schools are sending out "stuff" tomorrow (like Harvard, I think Yale, others...)

    SO back to my original reason for posting: Good Luck!! :D

    I believe it is supposedly the AAMC deadline to give initial offers of acceptances....

    I heard it was moved to April 15th this year though....

    NEVERMIND, I POSTED AT SAME TIME AND STAND CORRECTED.

    Although unlikely, I hope med schools are as advanced procrastinaters as I am and will send out many acceptances.

    bbl: gone to check mail box

    Some med schools hold off to the last possible minute to meet the deadlines...what are they waiting for? Harvard probably knew the day they received my application that they would reject me and yet the waited to today to let me know!
