    I've also gotten 5 interviews, 1 rejection and nothing from 10 schools. By now, I've almost written the others off, only because my application has been complete for two, almost three months. I know you can still get late winter/spring interviews, but I'll probably weigh my chances carefully if I'm offered one later. I doubt I'd be willing to shell out the dough for a flight if I'm competing to be on someone's waitlist.

    I think some schools interview very late into the Spring. One of my friends at RWJ said that last year their school was still interviewing in late June!

    That late June interview was an abberation, most likely due to the AMCAS fiasco from last year. With AMCAS running much more smoothly this year, I can't imagine any school still interviewing that late this year.

    later,

    My best guess is that all the schools I'm still waiting on looked at my application back in August when my file was complete, and then put it in the pile of folks to look at again later after they'd checked out all the August MCATers coming through the pipe in October. When they return to that stack early in the new year, then I'll get my rejection or my late season interview.

    Unfortunately, those late season interviews are almost certainly more likely to be a waste of money....

    Hey guys,
    I have only gotten 2 interviews (MSTP) so far. I haven't heard from Columbia (MSTP), Penn (MSTP), George Washington, Yale(MSTP), Stanford (MSTP), Jefferson, Tufts, UCI (for a secondary!), UCLA (for a secondary!), Mount Sinai (MSTP), NYU (MSTP). All app's have been complete for at least 3 months! Not a good sign, I know. I hate this waiting game, if I'm rejected I would like to know ASAP so I can move on from checking my email, voice mail, and mailbox like a freak everyday.
