nycmed8 said:this means decisions for the winter interview dates are out! nervous nervous......
DrFlower said:For those we received "delayed decision" notices from the fall cycle, are their applications reviewed again with the winter date interviewees for the March decisions? Or are they periodically reviewed with acceptances that can be handed out at any time, even after this notification date but before May?
AubreyMaturin said:I interviewed back in October or september, and recieved a delayd decision notice. I currently attend Tufts U and the pre-med advisor (who know more about Tufts than anyone) said that the deffered decision letter is a very good sign.
I emailed the med-admit staff at Tufts Med, and they said that they just met last Tuesday to review the second round of applicants, and that they will meet again for the final round in May. So I expect that some letters will go out over the next couple of weeks.
stinkycheese said:In December, everyone got their letters on the same day, so I'm hoping that a bunch of stuff went out yesterday/today.
stinkycheese said:Really, because I had heard that nobody is rejected until May - everyone is accepted or delayed in December and March. Clearly, not all of these people get in, so I always assumed it was just the way that people who are not immediately accepted were handled. One of my friends is a Tufts undergrad alum, and applied to Tufts med twice. He got delayed decisions both times, then rejections. I am hoping that the delayed decision is more positive than what he made it out to be, but I am also trying not to get my hopes up.
AubreyMaturin said:I will ask my pre-med advisor on Tuesday, and let you know about the delayed decision. If I rememberr the interview day correctly, which I don't, I though that Dr Slavin said that; at first everyone got delayed, accepted, or rejected. Then after the last round of admissions, everyone was either waitlisted or accepted.
I am not expecting a second letter saying that I am still delayed or waitlisted anytime soon just because the admit com just convened this week.
I didn't get anything either, though I'm guessing that might be because I live in SoCal. Sadly, because I still live on-campus, the post office doesn't deliver today since it treats the college mail room as a business. That means no letters until at least Monday. Boo!ktsou said:nothing in the mail today. possibly because im on the west coast. hopefully itll be in tomorrow. gl everyone.
ktsou said:just checked my mail and.....STILL NOTHING. hopefully they send out the acceptances yesterday, so ill get it on monday (wishful thinking )
ktsou said:stinkycheese....i hope youre right. id love to live in boston for 4 years. im actually more about the area than the school (kinda strange, huh?). the location of the school is huge in my mind and after living in berkeley for 4 years and on the west coast for the last 21, i need a change in scenery.
I got an acceptance from Tufts today. I'm in Baltimore and the letter is dated the 25th, so it basically took 2 mail days to get here. Best of luck.ktsou said:anyone hear anything today from tufts? and if so, where are you from? just want to get an idea of how long it takes mail to reach different places from the east coast.
ElKapitan said:My question is, does anyone get outright rejected? If anyone, knows of anyone, getting a rejection letter first, please let us know. If they do give rejections outright, that means this "delayed decision" category means something, if there are no outright rejections, we are merely being waitlisted.
wends said:um, are they still giving out interivews
wisteria said:i dunno but they do interview into april.
RaistlinMajere said:I interviewed in the fall, was delayed and was accepted in January. So Tufts doesn't always wait until May for the delayed people. Some others also have posted acceptances after delays. It is possible to get in before May. Good luck everyone.
