my post was regarding "calling them" not about the anxiousness of the wait. Of course all of us have the same feeling about the wait. My acceptance has nothing to do with this matter. I actually got place on hold the first time around. I had to wait for months just like all of you for my status. I however, did not ONCE call them about anything regarding where I stand in the hold/alternate or whatever place they placed me in.
So don't take my comment that just because i got in that i think you should all not be anxious. I myself have been in your shoes and i totally understand how much this means to you bc it probably means the same thing to me.
I'm just saying to all of those awaiting their seats...jsut wait. Don't bombard them with calls about this matter of waiting or where you stand or questions of that matter.
You all have to agree that some of the people on here are bombarding them with calls over the same issue and even though i don't work there, i can probably feel their pain when they get the same call over and over and over and over.
when i heard that i was placed on HOLD you know what i did? i actually just planned out what i was going to do the following year to improve my application because stressing over the wait and if i was goign to get in or not was not worth it for me since I'm still in scholl.
Seriously though, good luck to all of those who are waiting, and remember patience is a virtue.
Nicely said. Congrats Derrick. Looks like i'll be heading to Touro, already have room mates and looking for houses. Being an alternate at Western sucks especially considering there are more than 100 potential pharmacy students on the list.
