How exactly do I procure the services of Texas to beat up California. I would like that very much considering they have provided nothing but heartbreak for me.


WOOT Texas!:thumbup:

I just called up Gov. Rick Perry. He said he'd get right on it :p.

I hope everyone has a merry Christmas; and for those still waiting on offers, hopefully Santa gets his butt in gear sometime before December 31st.

The email was sent today at 6:00 PM but I hadn't checked my email until tonight around 9. The interview is for Jan. 9th so it won't impact the prematch period. However, I feel much better because, although I feel that I am truly blessed with my TCOM acceptance, I thought that I would get more than one interview this year. Anyway, I will be even more excited tomorrow when I watch my son rip open his presents!!!:)

Is Texas Tech high on your list? I see that you have some acceptances already. How did you like the interview there?

yep, its my top choice... (as much as it pains my little aggie heart to admit it! haha!)

i didn't know much about the school until i went to their pre-med conference last year, which was essentially like an interview day for juniors--without the interview part... we had a tour, presentations about the curriculum, etc.

Before then, i hadn't given much thought to tech, but at the conference i was COMPLETELY blow away by the school. I had only been to visit one other school at the time (another premed conference), and tech made that school look like a poor county orphanage high-school with donated equipment... i mean EVERYTHING about tech was amazing and pristine and top-notch and the curriculum was solid and producing really serious results.

so, then going into interview season this year, i knew it would be near the top of my list, but there were many schools that i still hadn't seen...

well 6 interviews later, it was (and still is) my number one choice.

true, i have other acceptances to really great schools. but it's tech that i was (and still am) hoping to hear from.

I wish you much luck on the interview day!!!! and don't stress too much about it in the upcoming weekds: it's a really, really enjoyable day!!!!!!! :luck::luck::luck:

Thank you. I hope that you get in there. I just wish that there was a better way for both med schools and aspiring students to be on the same wavelength so that schools would "match" with students who are truly in love with their school. That is my Christmas wish!!! And...Merry Christmas everyone! (officially)

Call the Admissions office, tell them that you wish to give up your interview spot and withdraw your application. Thank them for their consideration and bid them a good day.

that is fantastic!!!

I just got back from southeast asia and although I didn't think much about malaria before i went, it's a really real problem that they face about as often as we get owned by the gas pump... only difference is that when we have a run in with exxon, we don't geto to go to starbucks as often that week. when they have a run-in with the big M you end up with widowers and orphans and lost children.

not to mention that, from a selfish standpoint, those of us who are wealthy enough to take them, long-term use of oral antimalarial drugs have horrible side-affects (speaking from experience).

I went to Africa when I was younger and didn't take my anti-malaria meds because I was a brat. Woops, Guess I'm ok! :p

I enjoyed waitressing. It's a LOT of work but there's usually some really fun people that you work with. And considering restaurants are ALWAYS busy here you'll make some really good money! My friend works at Cheddar's here and he really loves it. Plus, you're already in, it's not like you need the heath care job for EC's! :)

Hoping for that first one you named. And go you for getting those acceptances in the first place! Looks like you cleaned up.

The one I have used for travel to both Africa and Central America wasn't that expensive (my insurance covered it but even without it was only $20/month) and I didn't have a single side-affect... but I used a non-traditional one recommended by the people I was traveling with and verified by my physician.

I received an interview invite for Texas Tech Lubbock today at 3:35pm Dec 26. For January 9, 2009.

I am most likely declining it, not because I don't want to but because I will be out of the country. I was not expecting interview invites this late.

My MCAT is low so still hope for those waiting for more interviews...
