    AFTER BEING REJECTED BY 15 SCHOOLS LAST YEAR. I GOT INTO THE FIRST SCHOOL I INTERVIEWED.

    Thanks you for helping me though this horrible process. I love you guys, and wish you the best of luck.

    Congrats PelicanMan!!!

    I just barely missed getting an immediate acceptance, got the maximum amount of votes without being offered a spot right away. I'm a little bummed out but Larkin said since I'm at the top of the waitlist, I should hear some good news once interviewing ends.

    Congrats again to another reapplicant! :clap: :clap:

    you can finally be at peace (shalom)!! You KNOW you will be an M.D. now. Wow, man it has been a long journey for you, but I knew this was gonna come, and REAL quick.

    All those long nights of IM'ing back and forth, wondering if we were gonna get in off UF or UChicago's waitlist, and advising each other about what to do to try and get off those lists- Man, I will never forget your resilience to get in and how inspiring that was. B, you KNOW there are more interviews and acceptances awaiting you. Now it's a matter of getting in the best place for you!

    :clap: you gonna be a doc!! :clap:

    Pelican,

    gave me the goosebumps!!! i was on sdn throughout last year and was pulling for you then. it makes me really happy to hear about your success! I'm sure you'll be getting more of those acceptances before the cycle is over.

    Congrats!
     
  31. CONGRATULATIONS!! After what Pritzker pulled on you, no doubt you deserve this. USF is lucky to have you.

    Thank you everyone for the support.

    I got rejected from Pritzker already. It is my first rejection this year. Last year it was my last rejection. Oh well, regardless I know that I am going to medical school this august which is just an amazing feeling.

    Good luck to all of you, and hopefully my story will give hope to all of you out there who don't get in the first time around.

    have you gotten in yet? they just filled up,and ppl I know say that they got above the min votes to get an immediate acceptance, so they are on the waitlist ahead of you now. Sorry!

    This I know, but I got in contact with Mr. Larkin and he still told me that my position on the waitlist is still very strong and that I should get an acceptance before everything is said and done...so I assume that I'm still up there on the list but not at the top anymore. Plus, I expect my spot to get even lower, but Larkin knows this and still projects offering me a spot. Hopefully he's right.

    Thanks guys. I didn't expect to see this thread pop up again. But since it has I have an update.

    I have interviewed so far at USF, BU, Georgetown, Mount Sinai, and Einstein. But I have only heard back from USF so far. I hate the long wait after interviews.

    My interviews this year have been so much better because I am so much more relaxed because of my USF acceptance.

    Good luck to all of you. SolidGold I may give my spot up. Not sure yet.

    PelicanMan, those other interviews are at some awesome places and with your stats, I'm sure that many more acceptances will be coming your way. Keep us posted.

    The person who interviewed me emailed me and I got the offical stuff the next day.

    I had a really wonderful interview at BU. My best one so far. I talked to him for 90 minutes.

    Anyway, UF decided to interview me this year. It is kinda a surprise because I assumed I was blacklisted there or something. Last year I was in their first interview group. Oh well. Like I have repeated over and over again, I am glad that I didn't get accepted last year.

    For Brutus, try just searching under my name.

    Here is alittle bit.

    I graduated from University of Florida.
    4.0 Cum gpa
    31 mcat
    research

    got rejected from 15 schools last year.

    This year have gotten 2 acceptances, so happy.
