    what a depressing post guys.

    do we really want to keep caught up with the obvious errors that these adcoms have made? :D

    Oh, and if a school rejects you for being an out of stater, don't bother putting it down.

    I know stats questions suck, but would anyone who got rejected from Pritzker (as I'm sure I will be today or tomorrow) mind posting their vitals? I am just trying to figure out what they even want. Thanks in advance.

    Aight ,I got rejected from U of Chi and here's my stats: 3.93 GPA, 13B, 14P, 8V M in MCAT. I got research and clinical experience, and I seriously don't know what they want. Either my essay sucked or the 8 bothered the hell out of them. I didn't even get an inteview.

    Some important info about Pritzker. They look at the 4 essays first and then the recommendations and give interviews or rejections off of that. I'm not saying they don't look at MCATS or GPA, but the essays are a HUGE deal.

    Hey Barton, and Teapot, I got a Pritzker rejection today too :(

    I hate posting my stats so let's just say my GPA and MCATs are above their averages of people they accept. I guess my essays probably suck too much.

    rebelins - thanks for the info... how did you find out? I'm scared to look in my mailbox - Pritzker sent me an email saying they'd review my app within the next four weeks (that was about 3 weeks ago).

    Well, at least I'm not alone, got the boot from Pritzker yesterday, and from U of MN--Duluth the day before that. My stats are wacko: GPA 3.15 (returning student, 3.96 over the last three years), MCAT 13-15V, 11P, 13B writing Q. Even with the upward trend, that crappy overall GPA is killin' me!

    Got rejected from U Chicago yesterday as well. 3.7 GPA, 13-15V, 12P, 12B, R. No interview. How do you guys cut and paste the list from the previous post to add your info? I can't seem to figure it out.

    What were the essay questions that Pritzker sent in their secondary about? Its shocking to see so many people with great stats [even though its not all based on stats] rejected. I hope the essay questions are easier next cycle. :D

    I actually found out from my interview at Pritzker. The Dean told me that essays were crucial; they made the first cuts off the essays and recs.

    When you got the rejection letter from Pritzker, did you first have an interview? Or was the letter given without the interview...

    Hi there,

    It looks like I am not the only one who got rejected by Case...

    My premed adivsor told me that they love non-traditional applicants, but I guess they don't afterall!

    I too am joining the list of Pritzker rejections...here's to my first of the year
    :p

    BTW... GPA: 3.86/34T. I don't know what they're looking for but at least they saved me the $$ of going all the way to Chicago from Boston. Whatever. F**k Pritzker and their pretentious and condescending letter!

    I think it would make a lot of sense to track this same data on the ongoing list of schools offering interviews.

    Example:

    College (Inter 8) (4 Accep.) (1 Rej)
    State U. (Int 15) (2 Accep.) (1 Rej)

    or maybe this is just my own special way of "making the weaker arguement the stronger"
