    How long after the interview do people start getting letters?

    I am wondering the same thing. I just interviewed on April 3rd. Also, does anyone know if you get the info through a letter or a phone call?

    Hi everyone,
    Buffalo sent me an acceptance about a week after I interviewed there (late Feb.). I don't know if they are presently contacting people as quickly as they were then. The acceptance comes in a letter (so don't freak out if you get a thin envelope). Good luck, and I would be happy to answer any questions that you may still have.

    Thanks daisygirl! Another interviewee told me that the class was already full; but who knows? From what the Dean said, they decide who they will waitlist, reject, or accept the day of the interviews. The good thing about that is that we are still fresh in their minds. I guess only time will tell. So daisygirl, do you think that you will go to Buffalo? You can't beat the 4 hours of class time a day!

    I am not sure the other interviewee knew what they were talking about...when I interviewed in jan they told us 25% accepted, 50% waitlisted and 25% rejected....and they also told us many people get waitlisted and movement off the waitlist can happen at any time (rolling) so I would assume they are still accepting students....

    >Hi Community,
    Like Trout said, take what the other interviwee said with a grain of salt. When I interviewed at Buffalo, it so happened that about 6 of us were taking the same jet blue flight home into NYC. One of the other interviewees said: "My interviewer told me that the class is full and that they are only waitlisting". I told him that my student host told me that the school was somewhere around the middle of the interview cycle (thanks to scAMCAS), he then told me that my student host has no clue what they are talking about b/c he got his info from an interviewer :rolleyes: . Also, the breakdown of the acceptance procedure, which Trout mentioned, is true to the best of my knowledge. My student host told me the same thing and she also told me that the adcom meets at the end of the day and they decide then who is placed where(like the dean told you and my group when I interviewed there).

    I don't know if I am going to go to Buffalo. I really liked the school a lot (I also did not mind Buffalo itself). However, the problem for me is that I am married and if I go to Buffalo, I will be going alone :( (jet blue will make a good deal of money off of me if this is the case!). I interviewed at Stony Brook and Downstate (and have an interview coming up at NYMC). If I were to get into one of these schools then that is where I will likely go (especially Stony Brook, I LOVED that school <img border="0" alt="[Lovey]" title="" src="graemlins/lovey.gif" /> ). If you get into Buffalo do you think that you will go there? I wish you much luck :D .

    daisygirl,
    I am in the same situation. If I DID go to Buffalo if I was to get in, it would be pretty tough for me to see my husband. He will be a first year at Harvard Business School in August. I really did like Buffalo the most out of the six schools where I've interviewed. I haven't interviewed at any schools in Boston but am hoping to go to medical school in a city where the commute to Boston isn't too bad and vice versa. I guess only time will tell. This whole process definitely tests patience.
