Ok, so i get home from a boring day of class only to find a nice thin envelope in my mailbox from Cornell (rejection without interview). As this was my first rejection, and I had no acceptances, I was pissed and worried. So I get into my apartment to check my email, and next thing I know I got into NYU! For those interested, I interviewed 12/15. Needless to say, it took away the pain of the rejection. What a feeling! <img src="graemlins/clappy.gif" border="0" alt="[Clappy]" /> I need some advice though. I am scheduled for interviews at UMaryland and Georgetown for this coming Monday and Tuesday. Now, NYU is definitely preferable to these schools as far as I'm concerned. I can find no reason to go to the interviews and deal with all the trouble of flying and everything. Do you all think it would be too rude to call these schools and cancel my appointments? I know its not much notice, but I really don't want to make this trip. I know some of you have been in similiar situations - any advice? I have a Pitt interview scheduled for next Friday that I am gonna keep - as I've heard lots of great things about the school (don't know about Pittsburgh though). Thanks and good luck all! Hang in there August MCATers, those acceptances are coming!!!
