So I've submitted pretty much all of my secondaries, and most were complete in August. Is it normal that I haven't really heard back from schools yet for interviews?

I'm just worried because I've seen other people on SDN get IIs for schools that I had an even earlier secondary complete date... does this mean that I've gotten a silent rejection already? :(

Can you be patient and let the schools wade through the 7000-14000 apps before they get to yours?

Do they take volunteers? I promise not to be biased and slip mine on top ;) I would be happy to help them go through the applications! "4.0 GPA 35 MCAT? *Trash!" *dusts hands off*

It has barely been two and a half weeks, patience is a virtue. In all honesty the DO admissions process was far less intense and harrowing than the MD one. I went through both and I know how both types of schools work when it comes to admissions.
