Buttons pressed x opening day. A few program correspondences have trickled in. However, as alluded to by scopemonkey, I am becoming a little loopy, due to impatience/nervousness. My calm cool demeanor is developing patchy holes! (okay this is NOT the time for SCOPE to tell you about the blind panicky lunch we had today!)
Realistically the giver of treats and the voice of reason of GP speaks wise truths... I honestly think we'll all do fine...We are all clearly way to neurotic to have let pieces of our apps slide!
i did press that button too . wandering how long one have to wait for invitations, or refusals..those who already got their interviews - plz tell me and others..and 1 more. how do u know that program decided not to invite u - do they send u an e-mail or just leave u wandering and nail-biting? thanks
If it was recently, I'll bet you won't wait too long.
If it was a long time ago, did you apply to too few programs?
In any case, don't get too edgy yet, but if it was a long time ago that you applied (i.e. in beginning of October or so) maybe you should write a letter to the P.D. Maybe other SDN'ers could comment on this?
Also, I have not had rejections yet. The programs that I haven't heard from have not contacted me. I have been assuming that they are waiting for Dean's Letters.
thanks for reply,I sent my applications recently - on oct 25 aproximately. I suppose they won't send me invitations next day - but just currious how long did U have 2 wait for your first? btw, guys, what do u think about mle scores........??????? does step1 more important than step2 (i personally assume that it is), and what scores program directors expect from us. what would they think if one :
1. just passed (<80)
2. got competetive scores (80-90)
4. got 99
