    How long did you wait?

    Advertisements



    How long did you wait to hear something once your application has been submitted?

    I called the office and the secretary said she forwarded all my application folder to the committie on July 3rd (last Wednesday) and now its July 9th (Monday) and I still haven't heard anything in email if I should call to make an interview appointment. Am I going to get that rejection letter in the mail?

    How long did you wait to hear that email to set up an interview?

    Hi ShineMedgirl, thank you for the advice. However, how long did you wait for the email to arrive to schedule an interview? Because this is really killing me.

    I applied the first week of Spring Break which I believe was around March 15th or so. Taking into account the mailing of the application and for them to review it, I got the interview e-mail on April 9th. That ends up being about a 3 week wait. Since you've applied on July 3rd it's still gonna be a week or two before you hear anything. You might also have to take into account they may be busier at this time of year. If you want my opinion, don't get too excited or anxious for a quick reply from them, all it will do is stress you out. Just take it one day at a time, it's tough but it ends up being better that way....g'luck to you....

    Hey, They are not meanies. You can call them and ask what the average wait time is.

    Let me give a bit of advice, do what you want with it. If you're going to Med School, get used to going and asking the source. It's not pesky to be excited and just ask them.

    It's often shocking and surprising to see, and listen, and hear in class people asking other students questiions they should be asking the teacher, or the dean or admin., and then proceeding based on misinformation.

    Why? I dont' know, fear? I even do it sometimes.

    I SUGGEST YOU CALL GARDERN, 1 TIME.

    I think my email took between 2-3 weeks, but that seems like eon's ago, it was actually only about 10 months ago, and I'm already 3/5 through Med 2.

    Keep on. Best of luck.

    i have to agree with FOTL. you need to get used to asking the source man. i dont recall how long it took for me. but they will tell you your status via e-mail. so check regularly.

    You submitted last Tuesday and got an email last Friday!?

    I called the office last Thursday (July 5th) and secreatary said my folder was submitted to the committies on last Tuesday (July 3rd). And that if I don't hear anything by email, call tomorrow, Wedneday (July 11th).

    This is sad, I am checking my email at least every 2 hours so that I could get that email and call them to schedule the EARLIEST interview appointment.

    I can't wait anymore.... Someone give me something to break!
