    Ok, so every other school pretty much has a countdown thread. I thought I'd create one for all those waiting on UMiami. Post any relevant info about UMiami here. The latest info I have is that there's an adcom meeting at the end of this month, and that all interviews are going to be finished by April 19th.

    All I can tell you is that Miami is shafting me.

    I have already talked about it but this is the appropriate place.

    I talked to the secretary and she is like I don't know what to tell you. Just wait

    I talk to these kids that have interviewed there and they are like "What the hell, Miami hasn't interviewed you?

    Maybe I spelled my name wrong or something, I don't know.

    I would love any medical school at the moment it could even be FSU, damn I didn't apply there.
     
  4. i got a letter in my hand from miami saying" the next meeting is now scheduled to take place in the middle of march".

    initially they told me it was going to be in the second week of march.

    Ahem, I though countdown threads start when interviews are over? How can you start counting down when I haven't even interviewed there yet? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    Can somebody post what phone number you used to speak to a person there?

    Have any out-of-state resident been invited for an interview?

    They said they were accepting more out of staters this year, but I haven't heard squat since September.

    IBIS , I didn't know you were definitely going to UM! Is it true? I saw your post on the "Future Classmates of 2006" thread.

    I'm leaning towards UF for # 1 and BU as my second choice of the schools I have interviews at.

    Did you interview at UF? :confused:

    Miami was always my top choice (and if offered an interview it may still be).

    Good luck w/ UF!! I have a friend who is now a senior there and she tells me that her overall experience could not have been better....

    What's the word? Is today really the day? CANES2006 did you make the signs? I am currently camped out in front of the Rosenthal Building. Feel free to stop by and bring food.

    Dank,
    Not only did I make the signs, but I am currently camped out in front of Hinkley's office. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> The man won't know what hit him. I will refuse to allow anyone into the office until they accept me and everyone on SDN. Come on up and join me. :D

    Haha, first off, it's the RosenTEIL Medical Sciences Building. Take another look. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> I'm on my way! Should be there b4 lunch!

    Seriously though, anyone know if we got a shot or not? When they said the class was temporarily full, could that have meant they anticipate sending out acceptances which would make it full this week? Or just wishful thinking on my behalf? <img border="0" alt="[Pity]" title="" src="graemlins/pity.gif" />

    Papi,
    I think (hope) that they meant they are anticipating sending out acceptances this week or very soon. This would then make the class full. But, who knows? Maybe I'm being delusional. Tell me if you hear anything.

    Love ya,
    Cane
