Nope, I interviewed Sept. 30th and i'm still waiting. I keep thinking, any day now, any day...but no, apparently it's not any day. I'm so anxious! I remember them saying 6 weeks, which gives them till the end of this coming week (if it really is 6 weeks). Anyone else...?

Hey Coco,

What's up? I interviewed at GW on Sept. 30 as well. Where were you from? From your location I can tell you are from Cali. I only remember a girl who was interviewing on that day from Cali. Anyways, send me a message or put a post if you feel like it. Good luck!

I interviewd about a little earlier than you. I still didnt get anything, i guess its not a formula just random.


Also, someone please clarify. At GWU, are there 2 SEPERATE categories, "hold " and "alternate"???

i spoke too soon. I just got the mail about half an hour ago...and i'm on the alternate list :(:( I am soooooooooooooo upset. I got this immediate migraine. i just wanna cry or smthg.
Why are there so many of us on the alternate list? Do they just not want to fill up their class so soon or what's the deal? Do you guys know if it's ranked or when the next time we'll hear is?
I can't take this roller coaster anymore! I don't appreciate my emotions being played with. I get so excited over interviews...and then this comes and im so down :(
aww im so disappointed! ski2doc, u'll probably hear back soon. good luck, wishing you guys all the best!! :) Keep us all updated!

They said on the interview, i think, that we wont hear anything till march 15th.

Dont you love the b*llsh*t letter

"...is PLEASED to inform you...", be "BUOYED by the realization...".


Thay should have said, "we are sorry" or "unfortunately".

I hate the optimism. I think only a handgul of people get put or even maybe none she said during the interview, i think.
