    Well, we are close to the halfway point thru the 2001-2002 application cycle (at least temporally, I think we all agree that med school admissions are a little delayed because of the AMCAS fiasco). Anyways, I thought it would be helpful for anybody interested to post a summary of the following information:

    How many schools did you apply to?

    List of schools you got rejections, interviews at, and acceptances at so far. I dont intend this to be a running tally of all programs, since we already have threads for that. Dont add on to the previous posters' schools, just post your own experiences. For the list format, use the following protocol:

    [School name] I/R1/D A/R2/U/W

    I = interview, A = acceptance, R = rejection, U = unknown, D = declined by applicant, W = withdrew application. The reason two R's are used is to delineate between rejections before interviews and rejections after interviews. For rejections before interviews, you would just leave the third field blank. Use a D if you decline an interview (even though you were offered one). Use a W in the third field if you withdrew your app after interviewing at that school. Dont post a school if you withdrew your app before you were offered an interview.

    Also, post the following data:

    your (interview+decline)/application percentage
    your acceptance/application percentage
    your acceptance/interview percentage
    your decline/interview percentage
    your withdraw/interview percentage
    your reject/application percentage
    your reject/interview percentage

    For example,

    Baylor College of Medicine I U

    or, for reject without interview,

    Baylor College of Medicine R1


    Dont put any dates or anything, thats too cluttered. I will start first.

    Total schools applied = 23

    Baylor I U
    Yale I U
    Stanford R1
    Pitt I U
    Tulane I A
    Duke R1
    Georgetown R1
    SLU D
    GWU I W


    (I+D)/AP = 6/23 = 26%
    AC/AP = 1/23 = 6%
    AC/I = 1/5 = 20%
    D/I = 1/5 = 20%
    W/I = 1/5 = 20%
    R1/AP = 3/23 = 13%
    R2/I = 0/5 = 0%

    If enough people post this data, we can see how SDNers stack up against national norms at the halfway point, since AMCAS has a pretty good idea of the total number of application spots (16,300) and applicants (35,500) this year. I know this isnt a true statistical model, and there are several problems with this experiment, but lets try it anyways just to see how things turn out.

    Why do premeds always have to make everything so complicated? Talk about anal retentive.

    I actually like this thread. I love having excess information. You fogot Waitlist/hold. I'll designate that with a H. And if you havn't been on the interview yet, I'll make it an IR.

    Total schools: 26

    Baylor I U
    Univ of Mich I U
    Tulane I H
    SLU I H
    GWU IR
    Georgetown D
    Jefferson IR
    MCW IR
    Case Western I H

    Duke R1
    Pitt R1
    UCSF R1
    U of Chicago R1

    (I+D)/AP = 9/26 = 35%
    AC/AP = 0/26 = 0%
    AC/I = 0/5 = 0%
    D/I = 0/5 = 0%
    W/I = 0/5 = 0%
    R1/AP = 4/26 = 11%
    R2/I = 0/5 = 0%

    That sucks that the software wont preserve the right number of spaces between fields. Oh well, I'll play.

    Total schools = 31

    UT Houston D
    Texas Tech D
    UT Galveston I
    UT San Antonio I
    Tulane I A
    Vanderbilt I A
    SLU I A
    Dartmouth I U
    GWU D
    Georgetown D
    Ohio State D
    Rochester D
    WashU I A
    Pitt I U
    Hopkins I U
    Michigan IR
    UVA I U
    Yale I U
    UIUC D
    Case Western R1

    (I+D)/AP = 19/31 = 61%
    AC/AP = 4/31 = 13%
    AC/I = 4/11 = 36%
    D/(D+I) = 7/19 = 37%
    W/I = 0/11 = 0%
    (R1+R2)/AP = 1/31 = 3%
    (R2)/I = 0/11 = 0%

    Note that I changed the 4th, 6th and 7th equations just to have clarity. I think these ratios make a little more sense than the original formulas.

    What? Are you trying to say what MacGyver posted wasn't straightforward?

    LOL!!!!! We love complexity.

    :D

    I'm not applying this year, but so far, the responses have really cracked me up. :p

    What's thermo like, anyway? will it help at all for premed. (okay... i'm way off topic... )

    Anyway, keep up the stats or the riduculing. anyone want to the a statistical ANOVA comparision of SDN to the norm? ;)

    whew, I figure if I can understand this thread I can tackle anything in med school, so here's my attempt:

    15 schools originally, but just got and decided not to complete stanford 2ndary, we'll call it 14 complete applications:

    Pritzker I A
    Maryland I A W
    Case Western I A W
    Vanderbilt I A (will 'W' soon)
    Pitt I W
    Hopkins I U
    Duke I U
    UCLA I (invited but haven't gone yet)
    Northwestern D

    (I+D)/AP = 9/14 = 64%
    AC/AP = 4/14 = 29%
    AC/I = 4/8 = 50%
    D/(I+D) = 1/9 = 11%
    W/I = 4/8 = 50%
    (R1+R2)/AP = 0/14 = 0%
    R2/I = 0/8 = 0%

    I'm going to give this a shot.

    I applied to three schools only. Haven't heard from any of them since interviews, but two are UT's (don't admit anyone until Jan/Feb).

    Baylor I/U
    UTMB I/U
    UT Houston I/U

    your (interview+decline)/application percentage: 100% :)
    your acceptance/application percentage: ?%
    your acceptance/interview percentage: ?%
    your decline/interview percentage: 0%
    your withdraw/interview percentage: 0%
    your reject/application percentage: ?%
    your reject/interview percentage: ?%
