    I was accepted this friday 'on-the-spot' by my interviewer. I still can't believe it, and don't know how to take it. choker--please don't yell at me for not mentioning the name of the school. I am still gonna wait for the official letter, but, man, you should have seen me...I was wondering poor guy would think I am crazy and take his words back...
    My interview was weird: the guy was just sitting there and yawning at me the whole 20 minutes. I mumbled my answers, really incoherently, I was really discouraged by the way he reacted. It was not a conversation, it was like an interrogation session. I forgot my answer to why I wanna be a doc, and just mumbled, "well, because I've always wanted to be a doc". He did not even smile or nod or anything!! Just stared at me and did not say a FREAKING WORD FOR THE WHOLE FREAKING 20 minutes!! Then, he got up and announced it to me! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> Now I finally join the ranks of acceptees! Well, it would feel much better to have a letter in hand though... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    the mild frustration i may be feeling is completely outweighed by the exuberant joy i feel by hearing that you were finally accepted. we all saw you apply to 50-some-odd schools, and express frustration and disappointment through the past months as the several rejections came in. we all felt bad when you lost your job, husband, and was rejected from a handful of schools in that one day in winter. and we were all excited when you got your first interview at ucsf. and now, finally, we're all very proud that you're in.

    congratulations! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> :D <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> :D <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> :D :D :D

    Congratulations. I'm guessing UCLA/Drew. Small enough program that they could probably do that easily.

    It's funny that just last night I was wondering if Lady in Red got an acceptance. Seriously. Didn't you apply to a rather large number of schools?

    You bring excitement to our possibilites (applying next year). When you get the official letter, let us know where you were accepted.

    no, its not Drew--i am going there though, its a cool program. Choker--I did not know you love me THAT much to forgive me for being Cookie-like. :p
    when i get the official letter, you will be the first to know which school ( i will PM you), and I will post it here, on this thread, too. I don't mind sharing, I am just supersticious... thats all. (and paranoid).
    I love you guys and girls!!!!!!!!!!

    Awesome! Now you have some great news, so you can go out and celebrate! :D

    Maybe tomorrow morning that UCSF JMP acceptance will be in your mailbox! :D

    And anybody that wants to turn this into another Cookie incident will have to deal with us.... :p

    I hope the link works, but everyone is talking about this: <a href="http://www.studentdoctor.net/cgi-bin/ubbcgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=006623" target="_blank">http://www.studentdoctor.net/cgi-bin/ubbcgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=006623</a>

    If it does not come through, just do a search for "cookie acceptance", thats how I found it!

    CONGRATS Lady in Red!
    I know you've really been working for this. Can't wait to hear what school you ended up at.

    As for Cookie, well she might have been the victim of (duh duh) Foul Play.

    Or maybe we all scared the sh!t our of her with our relentless questions. Either way, she is gone but not forgotten.
     
  27. well, i've read that whole cookie saga. Damn, that cookie [email protected]#% never spoke a word after starting all that trouble. what a shady character she is. the fact that we may never hear from her again makes her seem like "verbal" from "the usual suspects." I AM KEISER SOZE! hey cookie..if you're listening: freak!!!!

    ok enough of that. Lady, you are sooooo a cookie i can't even begin to explain it. the differences are that we "know" and trust you, and you won't be leaving forever. you're not the type that will go into hiding, secretly reading every day, hiding behind a wig and sunglasses, never again contributing a post...lurking in the shadows like a rodent scurrying across a dark kitchen....

    but don't be scurred. why you scurred? it's aight. tell us the school, or we'll begin a massive school-hunt the likes of which would give cookie anxiety attacks and chest pain. now fork it over, sister!! :cool:

    That Cookie was the funniest thread I've read in a long time! That must have been during one of my inactive periods... that's too bad!

    Lady in Red: AWESOME!!! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> Me? I'd probably faint, pee in my pants and break a chair with my fall if I were told that! <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    What school did you end up choosing? We here at SDN with no lives must know!

  39. Off topic here:
    I just went through the cookie thread, I must have missed it or ignored it the first time around. But I only saw two posts by Cookie and something like 40 from other people. I actually thought her posts were polite. If some small miracle happened to me, I'd probably run here with it too. Not to brag, but because this thread is like a support group for many of us during this season of neurosis. (Further smarmyness on my part deleted ;-)
    Anyways. My $.02
    Now slowly reaching for my asbestos suit . . .

    And BTW

    WOOWOO Lady! Awesome, and Congratulations!!

    since cookie showed up again, I have to say that we still will not believe you until you tell us which school, I have my money on MCO.
     
  44. oh boy. here we go again. all of us are posting and lady in red is GONE forever. maybe she'll wait until months pass and someone else is taken "on-the-spot" before she pops back up like the infamous cookie has just done. only time will tell....

    but congrats lady. i'm green with envy..and blue from c*** block :D

    I am NOT COokie!!!!!!! Daddy and Caveman--what are you guys smoking over there? I told you I am busy drinking!! (alone by the way). If anybody wants to join--I'll be more than happy to have some company. The school is on the east coast, so it will take awhile to get that letter. I promise I WILL tell you as soon as I get it, its just my paranoid nature.
    Cookie: poor thing, those bastards have chased you away! well, you are back at least! thanks for posting!
    You people are all so great!! I feel like family here, don't harass me and chase me away PLEASE!
    CU in MD school and praying4MD--i was wondering what happened to you! Off to drinking!!!!! Where is Scooby?

    Cookie, please don't taunt us. You come and go like the wind. Please tell us what school you decided on. The people of SDN will not rest until this mystery is resolved!

    It does not happen often, that is why no one believed Cookie the first time.

    Plus, we are all jealous and wish something like that would happen to us so that we would not have to go home and wait by the mail box day in and day out.
