    What are my chances

    Advertisements



    . . . of hearing back from the admissions committee before I lose my damn mind??

    I'm still within the 2-6 timeframe they gave me, so I have no right to be impatient. But the wait is KILLING me!

    If one more person asks "Have you heard yet?" I may turn homicidal. Patience. Deep breath. *sigh*

    Send me good vibes, y'all!

    Well, I wouldn't be worrying if I was a shoe-in or had lots of other options. My MCAT is good (31) but my GPA is weak (~3). Everything else is pretty average. Also AUC is the only school I've applied to for September and I'd really rather not wait until January since I'm kind of in life-limbo here.

    Anyway, I know it's out of my hands and worrying doesn't help. It's just nice to vent to people who actually understand, ya know?

    venting? have you read any of my posts? i know venting....hehe

    a good MCAT balances out low gpa, plus you should mentioned in your personal statement reasons why it was low, why you can do better, etc.. so you should be OK but september is a big competitive class so if they dpn;t offer sept, ask about jan and also throw an app to ross, and saba and maybe st mats.. good luck

    All very good advice. I did of course address my inconsistancies in my PS but who knows how they will view it. My apps for Ross and Saba for January are in the mail (no SMU as Cali approval is important to me) and I do feel strongly that I will be at one of these schools eventually. However, AUC is my top choice by a large margin and I want to get going with my life, so I will be on pins and needles until I hear.

    What really sucks is that, despite my final LOR reaching MEAS over 4 weeks ago, I get the impression my app was only just submitted for review. My advisdor emailed me Friday to apologize for not responding to an earlier email, stating that she had been ill and then on vacation. She ended the email by saying it would take 2-6 weeks for a decision. I'm got the feeling she meant 2-6 weeks from that point, not 2-6 weeks from the time my app was actually complete. So I may have almost 6 more weeks to wait. *sob*
