    Has anyone heard from SUNY Downstate yet? How long does it generally take for them to call for an interview?

    I completed my application at the end of September, but haven't heard a peep from them. It's excruciating.....

    Hi Veilside and brownman24:

    How did they contact you, by e-mail, telephone or regular mail?

    Big congrats to you, brownman24 (or shall we say Dr. brownman24?) !!!

    Veilside, I know you're on your way too! Great news about that interview.

    As for me, I will try to sit tight.... Oh,oh, I'm squirming already!!

    Thanks.

    They actually called me up and offered me the interview over the phone. So now it is a much more relaxed waiting game to hear from any other schools.

    oh boy....
    Still waiting for Downstate!! IT's been 3.5 wks since my interview (oct 8).... and I looked at my AMCAS transmissions dates, and interestingly enough, my transmission date changed from aug. to now oct. 22.... very interesting, yet no word.
    My interview said, and i quote "I wouldnt be surprised if you get accepted everywhere you apply".....
    well, I want to be accepted by Downstate!
    ...acceptance, please come.....
     
  12. acceptance letters were dated 10/21, so its possible that if you are accepted, you may be in the next batch to get sent out.

    good luck,
    wexy
