UT-Houston has sent out acceptances

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by Warren P. Cheswick, Jan 28, 2002.

  1. Just received an e-mail confirmation from my pre-med advisor that if you were matched to UT-Houston that the acceptance letters are in the mail.

    Hey Warren,

    When were the letters sent out, has anyone received them yet? I thought the schools would mail them out on feb 1st.

    Aren't they breaking the rules of the match by sending them out before february 1st?

    Controversy!
     
  6. let me get the e-mail sent from my pre-med advisor at Texas A&M University-College Station...be back in a sec.
     
  7. I did check with UT-Houston Medical School and this is true. Somehow, the letters got mailed a bit too early. They are valid letters from UT-Houston and it is my understanding that everyone that was accepted to UT-Houston will receive a letter. They are all in the mail.

    Good Luck and Cheers!

    Hope you guys get them soon.
     
  9. I think you'll have to wait until Friday to find out about TAMU, unless all the Texas schools get giddy and decide well since Houston sent them out early we should too.

    Why are some of you counting Houston out already, if the letters are in the mail, you may still hear from them soon.

    I think that TMDSAS should go ahead and post the results of the match if one of the schools has already released the info. If they don't I hope all the other schools in the match head to the mailbox with thick envelopes today.

    I had a note from the post office on my apartment door at lunch. Apparently, I have a certified letter at the post office to be picked up hopefully before they close today. Would Houston mail out certified letters telling you that you did not match with them OR only acceptance/congrats letters??

    i seriously doubt they'd send out certified mail if you didn't get in. Congrats my man! I loved Houston when i was out there (along with the TMC, the cool town and a bunch of other stuff). Take care! --Trek
     
  25. just out of curiosity...they're sending them out to you school addresses not your permanent address right?

    I assume they are sending them out to the same address where they sent interview invites. My permanent is the only address I listed anyway, so this wasn't really an issue for me.

    Are you guys sure the UT Houston letters are not acceptances for special programs like md/phd or md/mba. Because this is pretty blatant violation of match rules. I know some people got acceptances to Tech's md/mba program recently. How do you know the Houston acceptances are for the md program?

    Warren, did you get anything in the mail today from UT Houston? Is it safe to assume that if you didn't get a letter yesterday, you're not on the list?

    Makaveiii-

    I know that they are legit MD program acceptance letters b/c I got one! I am in no special programs.

    A&M's premed advisor sent out an email saying that Houston messed up and shipped out their letters way too early. No other school would be following suit, the Texas match would still not be officially revealed till Feb 1, and to not call the TMDSAS folks b/c they won't tell you and were annoyed with the volume of phone calls they were receiving about all this.

    I know that the good folks at UT Houston are only human, and humans make mistakes, but how can someone ACCIDENTLY send out like 1,000 letters? Does this strike anyone else as odd? :rolleyes:

    I guess a "mistake" could possibly happen. If you think about it, it takes time to get the letters prepared, signed, and stuffed into envelopes. Perhaps someone had set some of the completed letters aside to be mailed out on Friday and someone else came along and decided to do someone a "favor" by mailing them? I know that this seems highly unlikely, but such mistakes do occur.
     
  37. I'm assuming I'm not on the list, but I'll receive the confirmation when I check the match status on Friday.

    See I told y'all that UT-Houston sent them out, and you didn't believe me....some people.

    As for sending out 1,000 letters it's more like 200-225. This is Houston's class size and they haven't sent rejections out yet, sicne they need to make sure that everyone who receives an acceptance wants to go to that school and not to some far off land. When I interviewed a frist year student didn't hear about his acceptance until late July. He had a couple of weeks to cancel what he was doing and make it to Houston for the first day. So we might have all summer to wait, unless you are already admitted to a Texas school.

    I was counting on their site being up and on time because I'm certain there will be a major delay at the TMDSAS site.

    Well, now I'm able to access the site again. No early release of match results, though.
