    There's a bunch of schools that I'm waiting to hear from but Tulane was the first application I completed way back in early October. I was wondering how many people heard from them yet (interview, acceptance, rejection). :cool:
     
  2. Thread continues after this sponsor message. SDN Members do not see this ad.

  3. Tulane kindly gave me my first non-interview rejection about a week ago. FYI. I completed the app. in mid October.

    Interview Sept 13 rescheduled to Sept 27. Had an acceptance in my mailbox on Oct 15th. Tulane doesn't mess around. They move quickly.

    Irongirl the 15th is the first day an AMCAS school can "officially" notify you. I knew unofficially two days after my interview :D

    hey,

    don't forget about all of us who have recieved, the "acceptable canidate" letter. they say that we won't probably hear anything else until march or april.

    also, as i am sure many of you have noticed, the time it takes somebody to be accepted, rejected, or put on a waiting list really depends on many factors, in the eyes of the adcoms, not everyone is an equal applicant. :(

    UCLA2000: In response to your above comment, Tulane did accept me before Oct 15th, however, it was an "unofficial acceptance letter". They stated in the letter that before sending me an official acceptance letter I had to send them a transcript and MCAT scores so that they could do the verification that AMCAS neglected to do. Whether they bent any AMCAS rules, I don't know, and given the situation, I doubt Tulane cares.

    Called today and was kindly told that my application is in the "Hold" pile. I have been complete since September. Surprised that they couldn't send me something at least telling me where I stand.
