    Hey, I received an e-mail from Rosalind Franklin stating my application is complete and to expect a decision in the mail. I thought people were hearing from RF by e-mail. Is this a potential rejection? Thanks

      I did not. I got an e-mail saying my application was complete and to expect a letter in the mail after the committee decides. I have not received anything about an interview pool. I thought I was getting a rejection letter sent to me because everyone seems to say that RF sends an e-mail about interviewing, but apparition (see above) mentioned that interview invites come by snail mail (i.e. Postal Service). So, it looks like I am going to get an rejection or interview. GOod luck

        Frank, were you an August MCATer by chance? I am trying to see how many times a week I should be stalking RFU for a status check.

          I believe they make decisions for jan interviews today and beg of next week. However, if your not in the possible pool yet, then you won't be in the pile of choices for deciding who gets interviewed either. atleast until you make it to the possible pool or get a straight interview....
          best of luck

            i was an august mcater also, but i got put in the pool in mid-october.......

            also, i dont believe rosalind has rejected anybody yet. so i would not worry.
            I am in no pool: not a kiddie pool, not a whirlpool, not a cesspool and certainly not in the CMS interview pool. too bad too, I would have loved to study with you guys by day and gone to outdoor concerts at Ravinia by night.

            I did get an email stating that final decisions would be made by next week, but given my lack of placement in a pool I will assume the inevitable for now.

                    I think that's what mine basically said. They can't all be like Iowa, can they?

                      i called them to check on the status of my application, and the woman on the other line put me on hold for a minute, then said ok, go check your email inbox. i did, and there was the 'possible interview' e-mail. so i guess i was in that group all along and they just never sent me the email? not really sure what to make of it. my application was submitted more than two months ago.

                          edit: maybe i accidentally deleted the invite email in spam folder???

                              so does that mean the committee already decided on the invites for january and february? crazy crazy people, why are they lying so differently to everyone?

                                      I thought the committee meets once a month. We have to wait until the end of this month to find out if we've got an interview or not? Omigosh I dont think I can take anymore of this torture! :scared:

                                      i can confirm this.

                                      the lady i talked to, who is the director of admissions and records, says that january invites will be given out in LATE november and possibly early DECEMBER.

                                      she said december invites just went out and the adcom only meets once a month. there are only two interview dates for december, so A LOT OF january invites will go out.

                                      january invites that were made either today or next week is a myth.

                                        Madonna, do you ever have one of thosse "Madonna" moments: when everything is going really crappyin your life and the only thing that can help is that perfect song by Madonna that just makes it better. "Express yourself" and "Like a Prayer" are some of my favs right now, but hopefully when I get into a school "Celebrate" or "Ray of Light" will be more appropriate. There really is a Madonna song for any occassion.

                                          yes, madonna is the queen. mb i should have sent a pic of her instead my own, the schools would react better :)

                                              so, you enjoyed your time there so far? i interviewed there today...i could easily see myself there for four years ;)
                                               
                                              I called Rosalind today (been in the pool for a few weeks now) and the lady in the admissions office put me on hold and then said that I had been given an interview! :thumbup:

                                              So, apparently I'll get a snail-mail letter from them within the next couple of weeks and then i'll have to call back to schedule an interview (dang, wish she would have offered to schedule it over the phone today...).

                                              So, anyone who wants to know their status- I recommend calling them. The person I talked to was really nice and it's great to know I have an interview!

                                                uhh...underdog-this poster really makes your claim kinda questionable...maybe the jan invites have been offered and they're lying to us.

                                                    I have totally enjoyed it. I wont lie and tell you that there arent problems but the new admin seems to be doing good things with the place. If you have Qs PM me. As many on the post-bac board will tell you I simply tell it how it is. I give honest answers.. Good luck!

                                                    Thanks- I'll try to rock it. :cool: :p
