Seriously, will they just end my misery already? Do they enjoy this sick game that they are playing on me. Zero interview invites left yet my status page is still "on hold". Either reject me or offer me an interview!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I seriously hate this process!

This may be a stupid question, but everyone calls UMiami, UMich, and UMN the U of M, so which school are you talking about?

Dr. Hinkley at UM (the UM that is the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine) told us at the UF forum this weekend that he will start sending out rejection letters this week. :(

Does that include the Boca Raton campus as well? Also, do you know if they will still be offering interviews at all? I've only been complete there since 1/8 (I chose "no preference" with regard to which campus) and I was hoping that I'm not too late...

I'm not sure if it's the Miami campus or both. I asked him when they started rejecting when we were talking about how they rank students during the review of secondary applications. They apparantly don't reject anybody at first (if you pass some simple cutoffs and get a secondary), and just put them in the ranked list. They will start rejecting sometime this week. I don't know if this means that they'll just chop off the bottom half of the list, keep giving interviews, etc. I'm in the same boat, clueless about my own particular position or situation.

I haven't actually been rejected yet (though I know they're done with interview invites) and was wondering about it too.

My hypothesis would be that they don't reject until they HAVE interviewed everyone, that way they still have a pool from which to pull if someone cancels their interview. But given that we're talking about the University of Michigan, that seems quite unlikely.

How do you know they are done with interview invites? They didn't send me a secondary until 12/12/06, my app was completed on 1/8/07, and when I talked to them over the phone on 1/17 they said my app had gone under review the day before and I should hear something back in "a couple of weeks." If they are done inviting for interviews, I wonder why they didn't reject me already?

Yea, that may be true, but at least I know the difference between "your" and "you're." Let me demonstrate: Your remarks confirm that you're an @$$hole.

And the rejection comesssssssssssss!!!! Damn you Granholm.... Maybe if you pumped more money into education UMich would accept more in state. Who am I kidding, UMich would just accept more undergrads from UMich and screw over the kids from over in state schools.
