Congrats to you all with offers. I am really really glad for you all. Would you please accept so the schools know how many they have from the 1st batch (you guys) and can offer interviews to those of us with none?!!! :)Thanks and enjoy the day. You deserve it!!!

Nah. its actually better for us with no interviews, if they all said thanks but no thanks and decided to go to med school or join the peace corps

The schools would then have to go through and find another set. If I'm not in that set if interview and offer, I'd like it all of those people to say the same thing.

Repeat until I get an offer. :D

Don't rush people to make decisions. I'm pretty sure most people are being considerate, but need some time to mull over one of the biggest decisions they've ever made. Just like people who are accepted need to be respectful of you, you have to realize that the decision isn't just going to be made at the drop of a hat.

lol i dont think a thread will rush anyone... people are gonna take their time.

People can/and will put multiple deposits. If i have to guess no more than 2. But after 30 days, if people dont accept their acceptances, they will be put back into the pool again. :)

I did not imply anyone should hurry. Of course its an important decision but if you already know you want the school so bad like many were swearing before they got their offers, then go ahead and just accept. You applied, interviewed at and visited the school:);it only shows maturity that you can make up your mind.
Maygyver,I did not disreespect anyone and I am not rushing anyone.
Peanutb123, no thread is pointlesss.

LOOOL, "Just in Case" of What ??

Your top schools closes down in the next 8 month !!

Your request is a very logical and ethical one but maybe 20% of people will hear do it. I think 80% will put deposits in more than 1 school ( Hence I think this is why the Dental offices should raise their deposits significantly to avoid that).

So Don't worry about wht others are doing and just hope you get a call from your Fav school.

Best of Luck

Every year there are threads like these. "Please hurry up with your decisions so other people have a chance." Be considerate and don't add unecessary pressures to rush other people with one of the biggest decisions they have to make. They earned their rights to take some of their times. Of course, same goes to the people who got in. If you have no interest in attending some schools, it is probably better to decline your offers ASAP. What really ticked me off is some people I knew didn't bother to call the schools they still have interviews at to cancel their interviews. Now those are spots that really gone down the drain to waste.

People are already being interviewed for the Post Dec interviews regardless of when they put down their deposits. No one is going to put down deposits to ALL the schools they got in. Maybe 2 schools by the time the deadline has approached. However, I highly doubt anyone would waste their money doing so unless it's really a significant life changing decisions they have to make.
I am probably going to be attacked by a few of you by making that statement, still.............. just be patient and good luck with your applications.

Just in case for what??? Once you got in, unless the school found out some of the dirty little secrets the applicants wasn't being honest about, or if the applicants start getting Ds or even Cs. They will take you no matter what.
