    You couldve fooled me. I've seen him around at school, hes got Rush on Tuesday, I don't know what's up with his internet connection though. I should ask him.

    you've seen him??? why has he stopped posting? even if his internet connection crapped out, i'm sure there's plenty of options at UIC to get logged on. if you see him, smack him silly...how dare he make us worry.

    AHHHHHHHHH!!! My identity has been STOLEN!!!

    Seriously....who stole my name?

    I finally got my DSL connection going yesterday - mindspring took a total of 7 weeks from the day my line actually started carrying the DSL signal to get me my modem and line filters. So now I'll be on 24/7 once again.

    My Rush interview was GREAT! I don't know exactly how it ended up happening, but all sorts of things just fell into place at just the right time. I interviewed with Jan Schmidt (director of admissions) who is one of the nicest people I have met throughout this whole process. Of the many things we had in common:

    - We both love the symphony and the Beatles
    - Neither of us understand abstract art
    - She was intimately familiar with the Sun Times article I was in
    - We both enjoy (but have trouble with) 17th century prose

    So while I was expecting a 30 minute interview consisting of the usual interview business, we talked for 90 minutes (!!) about everything but medicine. A few minutes before the end, she asked if there was anything I wanted address in my file and I obviously brought up my 7 in verbal. To my surprise (and delight), we both agreed that the 7 was a fluke and that I'm capable of much better than that.

    The second interview was just as good - a biochemist from Russia (I believe) who also loves the symphony and Dostoevski (my fav. author). Although 30 minutes was dedicated to medical conversation, we spent the next 20 talking about Chopin, Rachmaninov, and Dostoevski.

    Seriously guys, I feel good about this one. They make decisions on Wednesdays and I should hear from them (according to Ms. Schmidt) by sometime around Feb. 24.

    Crossing my fingers...

    Hey Foxy - wow...247 posts, eh? Good to see that everyone's been busy.

    It's so strange to come back and see all of these new people with large post numbers. It's sort of like leaving home and coming back to a bunch of siblings you didn't have when you left. It's even stranger to see the "Acceptances, waitlisted, or rejected" thread at 527 (I remember when it was at 2).

    Going to be gone for another two days after today, though - I have an SIU interview on Friday and I leave tomorrow.

    Yay Rxfudd!

    Glad to have you back. As far as your connection goes, lets just say you're more patient than I. I got dsl a few months ago. They couldn't get it to work after three days (and 7 hours on the phone with "tech people"), so I threw everything in a box and sent it back with a note demanding money.

    Sounds like your interviews went great! I've got my fingers crossed so hard they're almost breakin'...keep us informed!

    Hey, welcome back!! :D We were all getting a little worried. Nice to hear there was a relatively benign reason for your absence. Good luck on the interview!!! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    rxfudd- awesome to hear about such eclectic connections being made with such an important person. hope that bodes real well for you. You were worried early on, but glad that now things are 'falling in place' :)

    there's nothing more self-lessly heart warming than hearing about good things happening to good people.
    may you be adding number to the first column of that oh-so-long thread :D
