I don't think they're really violating:Originally posted by relatively prime
Because... if they are sending out these letters/e-mails only to people who are going to be accepted... they are violating AMCAS's Oct. 15 rule. If they are sending these things out to everyone... then those of us who haven't gotten anything should probably wonder if there's something wrong with our contact information.
Nowhere does it say that these people are accepted. In fact, there's a specific disclaimer (however messed up by the voice recognition) that specifically says that the email is not an offer of admission.Each school of medicine should agree not to notify its applicants (except for those applying via Early Decision Program [EDP]) of acceptance prior to October 15 of each admission cycle.
You're reading into this too much. It has nothing to do with the thank you notes like Columbia, as I noted before.Originally posted by kreno
This person sent thankyou notes TO THE DEAN... so perhaps the email was a response to the thank you note to him.
I, on the other hand, am an IN STATE person who didnt receive anything - I did not send thank you notes.
yep. instater here. i just smiled at the email, took it as a positive thing (couldn't be negative, still could be rejected, but the overall tone was positive) and am just keeping my panties out of a bunch. oct 15th is coming soon.Originally posted by MGoBlue13
Some notes also went to instaters. One of my classmates here at UM got the letter, and so did I (though I am out of state). So no trend there.
Sept. 20 Email received on Sept. 26. [not me]Originally posted by SunnyS81
Just a quick observation, but everyone who listed an interview date was Sept. 13. They may have just done it for one day......anyone get the letter and not interview on Sept. 13? (or earlier)
I'd be careful about what sort of identifying information I'm posting about myself if I'm criticizing someone. It's always possible that UMich can look at the post. There are a limited number of people who interviewed with that doctor on the 13th and are in-state.Originally posted by kreno
I *TOTALLY* agree with Woots! I interviewed on the 13th, and I thought things went fine until my third idiot interviewer (anyone have Dr. Supiano... a geriatric doc?) that guy blew, and I'm *POSITIVE* if I don't get in it's 'cuz of him.
No no... people who didn't get e-mails can certainly still get in. It's just that, like you said... the people who got them are the "SWEET people who the DEAN really wants." I don't know if they will go to other schools... I mean after all UMich is a TOP TEN SCHOOL!!Originally posted by kreno
Um, does that mean those of us whom didn't receive the email DID NOT get accepted?!?! Like for sure? Or were those emails just sent to th SWEET people who the DEAN really wants but are probably gonna go to better schools (hence the email to lure them to uofM)?
Well, you were still high enough in the applicant pool that you were chosen to get an interview in the first few rounds. I'd imagine you still have a chance to get in.Originally posted by kreno
Hey relatively prime... can you expand a bit about your conversation? didy you SPECIFICALLY ask if its possible to get in even after you DON'T get an email?
Also, did you get an email? are you in stater?
