    This is one day where keeping my phone on during class MIGHT be acceptable... I'll just sit in the far far back... near an exit.

    Already let my friends and family know that if they call me today I will hire an assassin to take them out. If only I could block all numbers from calling today besides from dental schools. :luck:
     
  5. all thats going through my head right now is "under pressure" by queen...

    :laugh: I WISH! Waiting like this is awful! I swear my heart stops at every little noise my phone or anyone else's phones around me makes. Us Chicago people will have to meet on Taylor for drinks after acceptances :cool:

    So under pressure...
    pressure :)

    ahh.....i have a biochem test at 12pm... so stressful..haha

    good luck guys..
     
  9. s1refrosty, did you talk to someone today that they'll call?

    they said at the interview that they'd call dec1, but I called them today (just to be obnoxious) and they said they weren't calling, but they we're gonna send letters...

    anyone else wanna give a call and see if they say the same?
    maybe then we can all catch our breath and stop staring at our phones

    Oh geeze, I was just there for work and left. I knew I should have checked these forums before leaving. I'll call after class and let you know what I find out.

    I remember them saying that they were going to call as well :oops:

    just got the call. remember that in the event that you don't get in today, this is not the end of acceptances. the more you let it get to you, the longer the call will seem to take.

    Goodluck all

    YESSSSSSSSSSSS , I got a long expected call from UIC too :).

    So happy and excited for you guys too.

    For the rest, just wait and keep up your hope. Let's hope that's only a first day to give out acceptances out of many more to still come.

    Now we can forget about competition and BE CLASSMATES, YAY.
    HARD WORK PAID OFF.

    Thank you for all the advice you all guys gave me while we were in the application process this year.

    Thank you God for everything you have made in my life. Praise Him.

    Oh Gosh, I was sooooooooo hoping for my phone call yesterday! I hope maybe they'll continue today. My interview went so well and they really seemed to like me but maybe they have a really good poker face. I have to remain positive and optimistic about all this waiting haha.
