I am not getting any love from any of these schools. I guess it is safe to say I should expect rejection or, if I am lucky, a chance to interview post-Dec.

hey ober, whats up with all the rejections on your predents profile?

Wish I could tell you. Haven't gotten a straight answer out of any of the schools other than the generic "applicant pool is very strong this year."

I think tufts is still a very likely Pssibility because most of their interviews are after December anyway. BU, though, we can only hope!! Lol. I am dying to hear back from Tufts, though, it is one of my top choices!! :xf:

UCSF: Am I too conservative for living near Castro?
UoP: I guess knowing the spawn of the founder of UoP equates to nada
UNC: Does the fact that my cabin is on the Tennessee border offend you?
Pitt: Willing to exile myself to 4 years of miserable weather for you, yet nothing
Oklahoma: whatever
Kentucky: Apparently having your entire family from the Lexington area doesn't matter
NYU: Manhattan...for 4 years...plz:oops:
Maryland: Think about it...Me + crabcakes + orioles + ravens= yes please
MUSC: applied late for combined PhD/DMD so no surprises with limboness here
And finally, VCU: I guess turning down that all men's school really has come back to bite me in the arse...lame

I consider limbo to be when you haven't heard from the school yet, even though it's obvious they've been sending out interviews and rejections.

My brother isn't getting any love from:

Tufts
NYU
Columbia
Harvard
UPenn
Colorado
Creighton
UFlorida
Temple

He had a later mailing date but his gpa is a 3.9 and his DAT was a 22AA. What do yall make of that? Is that normal?

Honestly I don't get it and it scares me to apply because I'm in my senior year and my gpa is a 3.19. >.< I'm scared. Also this semester isn't looking as hot as I thought it would.

End rant.

What should I do? Considering DAT retake and reapply next year :(

you dont need to retake the dat your scores are amazing. maybe take some upper level sciences and get all a's. volunteer and shadow. be ready on the first day aadsas is next june. having that early early app is crucial. you may still have a chance, but be proactive. i believe in fate. good luck op

Ouch... your scores are good. You may have submitted a little on the late side, and be swinging for the stands a little too hard. It may be a good idea to pad your application with a wider array of schools. It still may not be too late to deepen the number of schools you are applying at. Some schools, USN, for example has just started reviewing applications. Additionally, a lot of the newer - less established - schools will accept applicants who will chose to go elsewhere. It may not be too late to apply to some of these as well. Best Wishes, hope this helps.

Thanks snaggletoof. Unfortunately, I graduated last semester so taking more upper level science courses would be quite pricey and hard to get in.
Taking your advice, I'll definitely look for more volunteer and shadowing opportunities and be ready to apply early next cycle. :oops:

Willawa, thanks. I'm currently applying for jobs and thinking about reapplying next year with more choices of schools.
