    It's the strangest thing....

    I got a few interview invites a few weeks ago....and no rejections yet. I started to feel more competetive than I thought I was. But now, it's been 2 weeks and I have heard nothing else...and this includes schools that are definitely interviewing by now. Now, I am starting to feel less competetive. Anyone else experiencing this??

    Maybe I should just chalk it up to the fact that my last name starts with "W." hehe

    On the plus side, my Rochester interview is Thursday!! Yikes!! :eek:

    thanks guys...

    :D :D :D

    I am in the same boat. First three interviews came very quickly (August) since then I have heard nothing. Don't worry about it. The positive side is that we have no rejections.... :D . We are probably in the "Hold to Interview Pile" which is not a bad thing. But it definately is frustrating- I am so anxious to check my email and mailbox.

    Same boat here..I got interviews at Michigan State, Indiana and CCOM really quickly....now...nothing. What's the deal?
    I applied to NW and Loyola, they are interviewing...sometimes I think everyone but me. MCW is interviewing too...everyone but me..... :(

    Anyway, I'll survive.

    I totally agree. I keep checking the mail, only to leave disappointed. Guess no news is good news.

    5 and 6 interviews, wow, that is pretty cool!

    i have had one at tulane and haven't heard a peep from anyone else, and seeing how this is my second time applying, well, i am getting a little nervous, but who ever said this process was easy?

    i was kind of hoping that i would get into tulane right away and then i wouldn't have to deal with any other flights, waiting, etc, but that just seems a little unlikely, or too good to be true.

    besides, a lot of schools aren't even starting to interview until november, and i am not processed yet (about 11 weeks out and no changes), and i can't help but think that that has something to do with not hearing back from anybody else . . . my last name starts with a "w" too, hmm . . .

    anyhow, best of luck to ya' all. i am off to buy studded tires for my new toyota echo.

    I have 2 interviews, haven't heard from the rest. If you're not processed (like me), this might be part of the problem. I know some schools are willing to interview on unverified info, while others won't.

    SZ you'll get em! :) I'm just feeling really really impatient because I'm waiting to hear from a specific school which has recently began interviewing.

    Hey, jdub, there you are. I thought you'd disappeared. I noticed there's someone from Squarebanks posting lately. ;) You really think it's going to be a snow-in-October kind of winter, or are you just a boyscout "always prepared" type? It's on my to-do list, but I kind of hate to mess up all the smooth new roads. Also kind of hate to admit winter's already here. Best of luck this go-round. Maybe you'll hear from Tulane next week. :) I'm also at about 11 weeks and still waiting for red X's and verification :( as well as my first set of MCAT scores. I did finally get the PFD folks to say I was eligible -- so that should ensure my state residency verification. :cool:

    I am getting antsy too. I have 4 interviews so far. i didn't relly expect to get any, what with my stats and all, so I am excited to have these, but I am concerned about a few schools that are interviewing (particularly IA and UVM) that haven't contacted me. Also, one of my state schools hasn't gotten to my app yet, so that's kind of frustrating, too. I interviewed at my top choice, but my other interviews are at schools closer to the bottom of my list, so that could be my problem too. Anyhoo, I sympathize with all y'all in interview limbo. Stay cool.
