Hey JuicyDay,

I'm anxiously waiting to hear from UIC too after my 1/19 interview.

Did you end up calling and finding out if the committee met today?

I hope we both get in so we can just breath a sigh of relief at this point.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed:)

hey!
yeah, i did call, but the lady said that she was not authorized to even tell me when they were meeting. the only thing that i could get out of her was that they did not meet before today. and that's it.

well, if anyone has ANY change in their status page tomorrow morning, please let us know! (b/c that means they have met).

good luck to you too, UIChopeful! :thumbup: :luck: :scared:

When I called yesterday, I was told my file was going to the Feb meeting. Which sounds like they have not met yet. But it seems like they meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month, so who knows.

Any change to status pages?

Mine did the same!!!!!!!!!!! :D
I think we're in, dude! And i'm really glad your status changed, UIChopeful. I am sure we must have seen each other our interview day (since it was at the same spot!), and with a name like yours, it's like a beautiful storybook ending, don't you agree? :p

If this is true, it's my first acceptance!! yay!!!!

weee! Mine says the same thing :D
Do they have a special placement card or do we have to write it out?

Also, does anyone know if they have any Chicago spots left?

I don't think there are any Chicago spots left. I was accepted last month to UIC and got placed in Peoria even though I ranked Chicago as my preferred location. But then again, I'm from Peoria.

I can say some good things about Peoria--they tell me they produce very high board scores there. They also produce a very high number of surgeons so if that's your thing then it's good. The cost of living is lots cheaper than chicago and I think the teaching is really good. I did research there one summer that required me to shadow all the general surgery services so that's where I'm getting this info from. And I have to say that working with the patients was wonderful. I didn't sense any tension between patients and physicians. Also, the general surgery group in Peoria has a Da Vinci robot which is a very rare resource.

Hey everybody,

For those of you waiting and wondering, I live in Chicago and I received my acceptance package in the mail today, so those of you in the suburbs should be getting it in the next day or two.

I can tell you this, I had never had such an urge to hug a mailman in all my life :laugh:

Good luck to the rest of you!

P.S. JuicyDay, thanks for all the kind words... and yes, it is a
storybook ending for me :)

if this comes through, what a weekend this will be.... :D

No. GRRRR. Is it possible to call the post office and ask them to dig around for it? I live in Skokie!! That's 30 minutes from UIC. Not to mention I work literally 2 blocks away from the admissions office. I could've walked over to pick the damn thing up.

I live in Skokie and I got it yesterday.. USPS is weird. No use calling the post office now. You should get it on Monday.

hang in there, redruby. i'm sure you'll get it VERY soon; a lot of things could have delayed it with USPS. :thumbup:
