    It seems like lots of people have stagnant applications at some schools, so post the schools you have stagnant apps at and hopefully other people will report whether these schools have sent out any post-secondary rejections yet. This will give us a better idea of whether we are still under consideration or not.

    I know that at least Jefferson has sent out rejections (at least I think so, I'm pretty sure my friend got one).

    That's good to know. Nice of them to take the time to send me a prompt rejection letter after I applied 6 months ago....and after they cashed that fat check I sent them.

    Figured as much...
     
  15. Seriously. I also paid to type and print on the PDF form so it would look extra perfect. This was like 30 bucks at Kinko's!

    So, they took 100 for the app, 6 for the pretty picture, and I paid 30 to make the app pretty and no comment since August. Evil!

    I don't know if they've done post-secondary rejections, but they sure sent my pre-secondary rejection pretty damn quick.

    that's because the screen for a secondary is pure numbers crunching by a computer. it's more complex than just grades and mcats. i got a secondary with a pretty subpar undergrad gpa. you get points for things like an advanced degree, age, etc. in any case, that's why the pre secondary decisions are so quick. there's no human factor.

    UC Davis
    MSSM
    Wake Forest

    Although I know that MSSM finishes interviewing tomorrow, and I'm pretty sure Wake is done too. If you're still waiting on Davis, the app is probably on hold for an interview. Terri said they would get back to us around the beginning of April, or at least she said that when I asked at the beginning of March.

    Einstein finishes interviewing April 30th. I got an interview a week ago, and the earliest they had was April 20th, so they are probably done as well.

    UCI was done March 15th, according to a post by a student on another thread.

    UCSD is also almost done, I had an interview on 3/18 (invited mid-Feb). It wasn't a very good day for me, and I called to see when I might be able to reschedule it, but Yvonne said that it was near the end of the interviewing cycle.

    When I contacted SLU for my interview they said any Monday or Tuesday in April was open, so I can only assume they're interviewing throughout the month. I have my interview on April 5 so wish me luck!! :laugh:

    Oh, and does anyone know how full the SLU class is by now? I would guess they're only interviewing for the waitlist at this late stage...?

    Just got a Wake Forest rejection today; said something about me being in an interview group but they can't interview that many people. I don't know if that means I was in the interview group labeled "No" rather than the group labeled "Yes", or if they just have a bunch of piles and pick the ones they invite at random.

    Oh well, I heard it was a b*tch to get there anyway.

    I had my interview at Temple last week and they said they're almost done interviewing and that they're finishing earlier this year compared to last year. I think they're finishing up this week of next week.
    As for NYMC, I believe they interview til end of April.

    I interviewed at Temple on Tuesday, and they told us we were the last group.
