i am in the same situation w/ similar stats.

i hope we both have some kind of shot.

from what i understand, if you submitted your app to aacomas in Nov, it would take 6-8weeks so they should'ved reviewed our app end of Jan or... now. I think if we dont hear back from them by Feb 28th, our chances are slim to none.

Wow, I'm already into UNECOM, but I wonder if I'll ever hear anything from my mid-July submission. Not that it matters, just curious. of course, it would be nice to get even rejections from the other 12 MD schools I applied to. I think if you give someone $75, they should have to reject you within 6 months.

I just emailed the admissions office and they let me know that they started reviewing OOS applicants the third week of January and will be sending invitations in the mail. *Crosses fingers*

Not that I'd agree with that statement, but either way, it's not in the city, it's on Lon' GIsland!


Yes, but then the city is less than "an hour drive" away.
