    At least you got a reply. Some programs won't even reply at all, one way or the other.

    I know how it feels ....My first one was a rejection too. worst thing is it was just IM nothing extra ordinary, but it was my fault I didn't check that they required high scores on step 1...above 90....and I dont have above 90 and my step 2 scores are not out yet. oh it was from uni of texas south western medical center. oh well live and learn.

    still stressing

    I check my email several times a day hoping for that first interview but nada. Anyone in the same boat as me? i have 2 acknowledgements that they would finalise interview lists in 2- 3wks but nothing else, no jection no interviews either. This is killing me.

    dont get frantic. a young man who applied to er from sgu last year had great scores etc. he had a ton of interviews but of course several rejections too. those tend to come first. in the end, he got an interview (among other places) and brigham and women's and turned *them* down. So I hope you have the same pleasure in the next few mos. Remember the rejections tend to come first.

    I must say if that time to turn down interviews ever comes, it will be payback time for the pain and sorrow I am going thru. I keep my fingers really crossed, hoping for the best. It's comforting to hear that rejections come first, so maybe the silence from programs is a good sign? In my case i think they are offering interviews to all highfliers. We in the second tier might get something after the highfliers turn down their offers.
