    I noticed that the interview request list is growing rapidly, but with very few exceptions these schools do not seem to be sending out rejection letters. Is everyone on the SDN brilliant or do the schools forward borderline applications to be reviewed later in the cycle? Let us know which schools have sent rejections too.

    I think that schools often do continue reviewing applications that may not have made the first cut for interviews. That's why it's good to get your app in early--more chances.

    Well, I have already received one rejection (I wonder if that makes me a "reject").

    University of Nebraska sent mine out last week. Just too much of a longshot with no real ties and applying out-of-state, I guess.

    The upside: Now I only have six schools to wait on. :)

    Sorry to hear Jamier, but I will have 10 more opportunities to be a "reject" than you, and at least you applied to U. Nebraska. Before going into this process, I figured I would have received many more rejections by now. Thanks everyone for the clarification about the review process. :p
