    Anyone else feeling the pressure of time running out on them regarding opportunities to receive interviews? I am still waiting on a few schools that I really pray I will get interviews at including Tufts, BU, USC, UCI, and Temple. Just wanted to know if anyone else is in this boat?

    Yea, I've been waiting on Yale but figure it's a bit late for an interview. Same with Harvard.

    The only one I'm really hoping for that I still haven't heard from is Stanford. I've given up on the others. Does anybody know where Stanford is at in the interview process?

On another thread someone recently got an invite and their application had been complete mid-november. So they seem to be going slow through the applications.

    Harvard is definitely done interviewing. Sorry...

    Yale told me they were interviewing until March 8th. As of last week, my application was still 'in review' there, but I'm not holding out any hope. I think I've officially counted out Yale.

    Stanford is interviewing until April. I've been told they're just getting through a whole glut of applications. I'd say they'll send out interview invites for another month or so... Good luck!

    Great! So I can expect yet another pre-interview rejection. Thanks BU! To think, I had a dream that I recieved a letter of acceptance from them not too long ago. This process is really starting to affect every aspect of my life. Even in sleep I can't escape!

    Those bastards at BU told me that my file was still being reviewed, absolutely nothing about these supposed letters going out. Whats up with that? Sheesh I guess I should be expecting my rejections soon as well. Damn!

    Harvard is definitely not done interviewing. My best friend has an interview there on Friday. However, perhaps they are done inviting people ... I dunno. I don't think anyone really knows. Too many conflicting reports!

    nray, nray, nray! Why always so pessimistic? if you have learned anything from my recent experience as well as your own, it's that there is still hope! Some schools are still offering invites, and will be interviewing well into April. So no te preocupes! :D

    p.s. I hope you scheduled Finch...when is yours? Mine's 4/3.

    I thought I had a excellent shot at MCW, but still haven't heard anything from them. At least they interview into May. Also waiting on Loyola (which is supposedly full), MCO, Wayne, and my alma mater, who put me on 'hold before interview'.

    I'm nervous because the schools that have interviewed me are pretty much out of my range.

    I should also mention that I am still waiting on U Miami, USF, Tufts, Sinai, NYMC, Jefferson, and Hahnemann since application completion.....but still optimistic as you all should be! :)

    Hey Foxy,

    I know, I can't help it, been opening up the mailbox and getting rejections left and right. In addition to that I have been calling schools and essentially been getting the brush off. Then on top of that GW told me a week ago that they would be interviewing until next week. I called them again to get my status yesterday and they told me I should receive a letter in the next 6-8 weeks. So thats another rejection right there. Just getting frustrated, plus I have gotten no love from any CA schools.

    i feel you nray. i'm in that exact situation. i've been recieving more rejections than anything else lately. i'm new to this site, so forgive me all if i seem a little negative. i'm hoping by participating and talking to all you positive people, I can change my current attitude.
