    I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything from Rosalind. Do they email you to let you know that your file is complete or missing things or do you have to call them and verify everything? Also, if anyone else has gone through this, how long does it usually take them to give a decision once your app is complete ?

    I was told in February that they'll start reviewing in March... was told again two weeks ago that they'll start reviewing in a week. Just called them 5 minutes ago and this time they said they'll be anticipating the first round of review and acceptances in May. Seriously don't understand what they're doing.

    Ya I just talked to them about an hour ago and they will be sending their first round of invites out in early may. I submitted my application last week and it will be included in the first batch.

    I forgot to ask them, but does anyone know how many complete applications they have already or near complete apps ?

    May is here. So first batch of acceptances should be out in "early May." Does this mean that some acceptances have been determined and will be mailed out soon?

    I tried calling them just now but it seems that their line is busy... god I hate this~ I can't book my flight because of them.

    **Update:
    Just got off the phone with the lady and she said the apps were sent for review, but she hasn't got the results yet. :(

    I like the program and the school is pretty decent. I have some cool friends here too now..but Tufts is a much better school.

    The programs says that the top 25% get an interview. Just work your ass off for a year and be in that top 25% and get into a well ranked school in a cool location, with a full university and a cheaper program overall. Its worth it. Plus RFU isnt so guaranteed anymore.

    There are many drawbacks to RFU. The academics are solid and the faculty is really nice...but the location sucks bad. It has the bear minimums of a medical school in its facilities. No undergrad or other depts (besides podiatry). Weather sucks. Probably the most boringest location in the world for a med school. Its on a grade system and the masters program kinda makes the place a little gunnerish.

    I spoke to a woman yesterday and she said that the first round of acceptances will go out by Friday via email. If you dont hear from them, assume you didnt make the first cut. They have a preliminary screening you must pass in order to get to sent to the ad comm. I'm not exactly sure what that entails but I dont think it should be too bad.

    I spoke with the admissions people today. They said they made their first round of acceptances yesterday. My application was not accepted, however, it passed the first screening and will be reviewed again at their next meeting in two weeks. So I guess it's another two weeks of waiting for me.

    Edit: 45 acceptances were handed out and students given 2 weeks to accept.

    Got this in an email from them:

    Your application is currently being screened by the admissions committee. We anticipate the next round of acceptance to take place the last week of May.

    End of May it is then....for BMS and the medical school.

    Anyone (NRAI2001 maybe) can tell us how the BMS class on a whole did in gaining acceptances this year to CMS? The first class to go through this program just finished classes, so they might know where they stand on getting in.

    For those of you who have been accepted into the BMS program, I'm looking for a quality roommate to live with in the dormitories provided by the school. They're really nice, new, and very close to where classes are held. If anyone is in the same position where they want to live on campus, let me know, and we can talk about it. I'm definitely looking for someone clean, respectful, very studious, and most importantly NORMAL to live with.

    PM me if you're interested and we'll talk.

    i can only speak to what i know from when i was in the ap program (what was the bms program before they changed it) and my class was about 113 or so to start the year (for the 2006-2007 school year) we had about 90 people left by time we took the last set of finals and ultimately 68 made it into cms (this was when they had the automatic acceptance as long as you maintained the 2.96 gpa).
    if you would like to know the numbers for this year i would call either dr pullen or his secretary tammy as they are very helpful and will answer any questions you may have.
    and for those of you waiting i got accepted into the program literally 3 days before orientation began. just keep calling and talking to the admin people...let them know you are interested and that you are available.
    i wish you all the best of luck.
