    i called and they said they were mailing out the invites now. it's going to be in the first week in may. it's weird, everytime i call, i get the same woman, and she always recognizes me from when i called before i got in and after and she always makes fun of me for always calling. she even sent me a personalized email for a question she thought i might ask later on (and made fun of me in the email!). far and away the nicest administration i've ever contacted.

    see you in may!

    Thank you so much for the info! I am a big chicken when it comes to harassing the admin staff over the phone. I look forward to meeting you in May!

    go pitt. They really do have the nicest administration of any school I interviewed with...so down to earth. I am from Pittsburgh, so if anyone has any questions about the city, please direct them this way, and I will answer them!

    I am planing to go to the second look weekend too, but looking at my finance right now, I am not sure if I can afford it! :( This is really sad! I want to pay off my CC balance before school starts and as it looks right now, I will barely make it. But I am pretty sure I will wash cars somehow and see you guys there! LOL :D

    sorry guys, i'm not going. Unless I get off of a wait list, I know that I will be at Pitt next year, so no need to go.

    Yes choker...I'm waiting on my financial aid package before I make a final decision. Has anyone else received their package yet, or know when they'll start going out?

    Hi All,

    I have just received my acceptance to Pitt. I am kinda worried about the May 15th deadline since I need financial aid details to decide between Pitt and Mt. Sinai. I do know that Pitt was not listed as a need access school so they must have their own procedures.

    Hopefully, we will recieve our second look info soon. And feel free to PM me or post on your thoughts about Pitt and Sinai.

    Congrats to all on your acceptance! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    Hey all. I got an email from Linda today saying that everyone should have received invites for second look weekend via email yesterday. I did not get such an email. Should I worry? Are the May 4-6 dates definite? Thanks all.

    I didn't receive that e-mail from Linda, nor an e-mail about the 2nd look weekend. However, I did receive an invitation in the mail today, and yes, it is May 3-5. I wouldn't worry, I'm sure yours is lurking in the USPS void, soon to make its appearance. If you have any specific ?'s about the weekend, PM me, and I'll be happy to share what's in the letter.

    On another note, does anybody have details about pursuing a cnocurrent MPH, while at Pitt?
