    Yeah, interviews are definitely in Feb. I wouldn't get nervous about that until at least mid to late Feb. Pshh, but I'm sure I'll be a hypocrite. )

    Looks like we won't be finding anything out for another 2 weeks or so. And this time there's about 281 applicants instead of 251. I'm sure you all got the same email though. Good luck!

    Well, MN is #2 on my list. If I get into my top choice, there is one less person you have to worry about

    Are any of you guys taking pathology at the U right now? How was your test? I got 35/40 :/ not horrible but not great. I keep hope they post the grade distribution...

    I'm taking it there online. We don't get our grades back until end of next week because people taking it at other locations have to mail theirs in still. . . .irritating.

    They offer it online?! I didn't know that. Do you just listen to the lectures online and follow along on the power points?

    Yeah it's a pretty cool format actually. I think I did really well on the exam, but you know how those feelings can go. We pretty much watch lectures w/ voice and powerpoint. It's very efficient.

    Yeah I'm taking it at the U now too. I studied like mad for that test and got a 37, arrg! Who cares about K activated coagulation factors! Seriously! Anyhow, have any of you heard more about the interviews? I got that email saying they were pushing the dates back-- right to when I had scheduled a trip to S. America. EEEK! I hope it works out!

    The good thing though is we'll either get accepted or rejected before spring semester grades factor in-- so that kinda takes the pressure off! I imagine they'll tell us we have to keep a B or C average or something in remaining prereqs to qualify (I heard something similar about the MPH program prereqs) but nice to not be straining to look good on the app!
