    I have read so many posts about not taking the August MCAT, turn everything while you're still in the womb, etc., and just wanted to say that sometimes procrastination isn't the worst thing in the world. I just got accepted to Pitt!

    Good luck to you, too, imtiaz! This year is probably the best one ever for late submitters. All the best!

    allright! :)

    i think the apply early suggestion is simply a rule of thumb.

    it's nice to see the exceptions to the rule.

    Good for you, <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> but I still wouldn't recommend it! :) And I always tell people that the August MCAT is not the kiss of death. Now you can tell them applying late is not either. Care to tell us your stats? Excuse my nosiness, but somehow I suspect you must be a super-star applicant.

    That's very nice of you, but I am definitely not a *superstar* (although I play one on TV....j/k). Numbers are pretty meaningless to me; everyone on SDN seems to have great "stats" and be a terrific candidate. I did get one of those letters from Pitt asking me for an interviewing before getting my secondary, which from what I've read on SDN is based on numbers, so I guess mine are pretty okay. I am neither a URM nor a disadvantaged applicant.

    I have three interviews coming up in April. If there's hope for me, there's hope for everyone!

    Good night, all. :)

    Thanks, everybody. No, I'm not an actress (though I think it would be fun to try). I just did your standard AmeriCorps, medical mission abroad type stuff. So it can be done without being an astronaut or Olympic gymnast or something. :)

    "Never seen so many asking
    u if u wanted to dance,
    looking for a little romance,
    give a man a chance. I have never
    seen that dress you're wearing,
    or the highlights in your hair,
    that catches your eye.
    I have been blind,
    LADY IN RED, IS DANCING WITH ME.
    There's no body here, just you and
    me."

    You know, I love that song and got reminded of it after seeing lady in red's post. <img border="0" alt="[Lovey]" title="" src="graemlins/lovey.gif" />

    Wow, thanks, I love this place. You're all great. And it's wonderful to know that somebody wants me!

    Lady in red, they'll probably review my file at UCSF by the end of the week...so I'll know one way or another after that.

    It's great to get some closure on these things....
