    I didn't get a UPenn interview and so I knew i had been rejected outright. Just for fun I still went ahead and called them to ask what my chances of admission are? <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> .

    The lady pulled every word in the dictionary in her attempt to avoid the word "REJECTED". I kept asking her to elaborate. I eventually asked "so does this mean I've been rejected?" and she said "yes". We both laughed about the episode. Nice lady, tough job. :)

    The woman I spoke with had no problem telling me I would not be receiving an interview - that was about a month ago *sigh*

    Isn't it odd though. The whole rejection thing. Like, I just got a U Chicago rejection in the mail (my first MSTP, but sure to not be the last) but I have already been accepted to much better places (reputation wise) and places I'd much rather go. All very strange.

    What's even more stranger is that I was encouraged to apply (URMs can put down on the MCAT form that they're interested in this service and depending on MCAT scores, schools will suposedly "recruit" you). I was not even going to apply but just the fact that I got a letter from me prompted me to add them to my amcas app. Waste of blimmin $!

    I actually did that by accident once! I called up Northeastern instead of Northwestern. The lady was looking around frantically for my application and then I realized my blunder...apologized for my being a dumba$$ (while she was laughing at me) and then I wished her a good day...

    Did anybody get the official letter? I'm curious what it says. A friend of mine got his, and it said s'thing to the effect of your application was reviewed several times - ah gee thanks, multiple people think I'm (he's) not qualified? Lovely.

    So just curious if that's their form letter.

    I haven't gotten the letter yet, but it's on its way. I'm looking forward to it.

    I got the rejection letter today.

    I am really pissed with the way they tried to save money. I am sure they used 'low toner' to print out all rejection letters. Very bad quality of printing.

    I just got the letter. No surprise, as I have been expecting it for months. "Standard BS about applicant quality/quantity and too few spots...hope you get admitted somewhere" LOL thanks for your encouragement Penn Med... <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />
