Letters not yet received
Yes, im applying late. i had problems with the letters, as well as a couple of other personal problems, or else I should have been done with all secondaries by the end of August. If I dont have success this cycle, this can serve as either a cautionary tale to people applying in September or it may be a cautionary tale to people that dont have much clinical hours. I have strictly 100 clinical hours. I have other healthcare-related stuff but it is not strictly "clinical," unfortunately. If I do have success, I will reveal more about what I thought I did right- especially as a reapplicant.
12/8- its december and i havent received an interview from my state schools. COMMENCE PANIC MODE, im going to bust out that 5-lb gre practice book, at this rate...
1/3- Now that I have an interview from a state school, there's a chance I may get in. Btw I never picked up that GRE book lol
1/25- Been doing volunteering and bio research lately. Got an interview coming up in a couple weeks.
1/26- Things are looking up lol if I could just get that interview from NJMS, I'll be more confident in this application.
1/30- I just want that interview from NJMS and I'll be fine...
2/23- I feel more comfortable now
3/16- Mid March and no acceptance, I still have a couple decisions pending. Please come through for me NJMS
3/21- Why did I get these interview invites? seems pointless
3/28- End of March- sitting without an acceptance. Only two waitlists to show for this reapplication. I don't think this has been a good cycle. I would like to have had one acceptance early and some waitlists in addition. Now, I guess its time to continue volunteering and eventually send in updates, letters of intent, etc. in the hopes of gaining an acceptance eventually.
4/14- Waitlist movement should begin in a couple weeks..
4/27- nothing yet...
5/10- Looks like a third cycle is coming
5/24- Currently prepared for another cycle
