I hate Mondays!!!!! I took a half day on friday and apparently that's when UIC sent an email saying that they've thoroughly reviewed my application and have not made a final decision! So when I come into work today...that's what I see in my mailbox. UGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!:mad:

Gosh, If I can't get in there, then I can't get in anywhere since it's my state school and they accept 90% residents and I interviewed very early. WTF!

THIS BUH-LOWS!

I don't know what you are trying to say at all. maybe you need to improve your writing.

what do you mean by "I took a half day on friday?"

and what does that have anything to with "apparently.....?"

What did you see in your mailbox on Monday?

he is saying he left work early on Friday and couldn't check his email where he receives responses from med school till this morning. when he opened his mailbox with expectation this morning, he got an email from his safe school saying that had decided not to accept him yet. not a great way to start a monday.

:confused: How did you not understand that?

Anyway, dpark, don't loose hope yet! The email says they haven't made a final decision - one way or the other. Which means since you haven't been rejected, you still can be accepted! :) I think alot of other people received this same email, so I think you still have a really good chance of getting in! (Hey, at least you've already interviewed there :( )

Don't give up - hang in there! :)

Hey...Thanks Woots for the encouragement!:) I kinda needed that. I guess now I am going to just return to normalcy since I have no idea when they may get back to me about a 'final decision.'

I see, if that is the way how you write your personal statement, I am not surprised why your safe school doesn't want to interview you.

It should be " I took a half day OFF on friday."

And it is not making sense to put and after "aprrently...?"

is that how you talk in your hood? hahaha.

how are you going to deal with patients later on if you ever become a doctor? Are you going to call them aholes like yourself if you ever get sued?

dpark- no worries man!

did you screw up on your interview at all? did you say something you wish you could regret? this is what i've heard about uic interviews...

they aren't there to get you in, just a screen to make sure you aren't 'psycho'. My friend is a fourth year there and she's done interviews before and she said as long as they don't check any of the 'extreme negative right side' values for the interview you should be ok...

remember also , even if you were to be on the waitlist... it moves soooooo much. They have 4 quartiles on the waitlist, and traditionally the first 2 quartiles or half of the waitlist get in.
remember their selection factors are only a 'b average' and 'an mcat over the national mean' and if you interviewed early and they're on rolling admissions, you should be fine!

what the f*ck are you talking about? we always say "i'm taking a half day". its a shame dpark didn't get into his "safe school", but there's no need to rile him about grammar here, troll. :laugh:

kiddos, "your & you are" and "its & it is" are different. They sound the same, but that doesn't mean that they are interusable.

I am not inside your brain, if you don't type the way it should be typed, I can't understand. No need to call me names.

You failed to say that you can't check your emails during the weekend. Do you expect everyone to speculate?

I think it was pretty easy to infer...you know, being able to read between the lines is a very helpful skill both in medicine and life.

dpark, hang in there, it's still just October...I'm sure you'll have some great news to share with us before you know it! Good luck! :)

It's (It is) pointless to argue with an ignoramous! You have (you've) proven that you don't know much about grammar or comprehension and YET YOU DECIDE TO BELIEVE YOU ARE AN EXPERT!

BTW your first sentence about it's and it is...proves my point. (You mean it's and its...you GRAMMAR GOD!)

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

actually it's and "it is" ARE the same. "its" is the possesive pronoun, "it's" is a contraction of either "it is" or "it has"

My understanding is that you're and it's are the contractions for you are and it is, respectively.

And to dpark: UIC will come to its senses.

Dude, I would not be so worried just yet because UIC accepts such a large class every year. UIC also has a lot of spots that open up later in the application cycle because they might prefer going to another school they may have gotten into.

From USNEWS, UIC interviews 649 people from in state, accepting 422, with 262 enrolling from in state. That means that for in state applicants there who get interviewed, about 65% are offered a spot at UIC, with 160 withdrawing their acceptances. So you have a great shot in my opinion, based on these numbers.

Whatever! Troll, at least I've had an interview at an allopathic school.

About the interviewers...they're not trolls, so there was no opportunity for me to show any psychotic tendencies.:p

My suggestion: go and read Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham so that you can familiarize yourself with the English language.

Wait...is this the toolbelt (i.e. more than a tool ;)) who thought that SDN moderators were communist b/c they moved his post? That might have been the dumbest argument about why someone is a communist that I have seen. :)

It's like the Jordache vs. Lardache case...

I say we give trolls "yellow cards" and "red cards" like this other forum does...

Yellow Card Example

I hope the link works if you aren't a member. But ya...these trolls should get some sort of scarlet letter under their info and have it stay there for some set amount of time everytime they post.

And yes...I wish I had a 350z.

Ok, granted I'm still relatively new to SDN, but... Who the f*ck is this guy?!?

Answer - The anal-retentive, pessimistic, mean-spirited TROLL who gives premeds everywhere a bad name. I bet his c*ckring doesn't even match his hunter-green suit... :rolleyes:

It's highly unlikely, but if any broke-a$$ premed out there is looking, or know someone who is looking for a "vintage" car, my dad is trying to sell his '78 Datsun 280z. Gold metallic w/ black leather interior, still in pretty good condition...

Now that the car ad is done, can we go back to troll-bashing? :laugh:

no takers on the "yellow card"/"red card" stuff? or some variation of it?

well...either way...youngjock is an idiot....i'm sure he will bash this post and say something about how i'm not starting my sentences with capital letters or something.

Wow... my first SND flame! I'm kinda flattered! :laugh:

And no, dpark and I are not in the same "hood". I don't even think Urbana, IL has all that many hoods to speak of... :p I was just trying to provide some reassurance to a felow SDNer who got some crappy news this morning, who most definately did NOT need a troll to be harping on his grammar to feel superior. :rolleyes:

As for the "perverted language", go check out the AA thread. A troll like you could have a field day! :laugh:

for your info, that pervert used the word cockring in his message, that is something that you use during sex, but not during discussion about medical school.

it could be "use sex (omited and) perverted language."

and i wasn't really talk about that guy's grammar problem, his post is illogical.

ok guys,
this is strike two. I want to keep the initial spirit of this thread alive so I don't want to close this thread. Remember, third strike and you're out. So either,

1. Get to the original point of discussion, or....
2. Flame some more.

Needless to say, the second choice will guarantee that I will take some serious action. So please don't push it and NO MORE FLAMING!!!

With much love,
