    just fyi... i looked back at threads from the past two years to get an idea of when people started getting their interview letters.

    in 2005, the first post about hearing anything was on dec. 16th. in 2006, the first post was on dec. 19th. so it looks like we have about one more week to go.

    they sure cut it close to the holidays - bah humbug!

    I wish! I'm almost there though. You're right - getting ready for the holidays is at least a good distraction from the anxiety. That and a Pathophysiology final exam on Thursday.

    I do have good news - I found out today that I got into the University of Portland's alternate-entry Master's program. So that helps me relax a little. And hopefully it's a good omen for us all...

    Yeah, I noticed that too. I'm waiting until the beginning of next week to event think that a letter will be coming. Then I've empowered my neighbor (who's an undergrad and on break) to check my mailbox when the mail comes (around 11:00) and then she'll call me at work for fat envelopes. I'm trying not to get too anxious, but it would be nice to know soon.

    I'm definitely really glad that I can preoccupy myself with finals and christmas shopping. I'm trying to not get all worked up over interviews.

    Btw...congrats on your acceptance, teenyjo!

    Ahhh... I wish I had finals! or anything to do as a distraction! My job has gotten so boring that I'm planning on changing back to my old job... but for the time being I literally have NOTHING to do for the next seven hours...

    and my boyfriend wonders why i'm all stressed out about not hearing anything from anywhere yet!

    good for you, teenyjo! you know for sure that you've got somewhere to go and that must be a huge relief!

    okay, now i've gone back and read all the posts from last year, and it has given me mixed feelings -- it sounds like the number of awesome people who didn't get interviews was significant, which makes me sad, (because I do want an interview!), but at least i know that if i don't get one, I'm in good company.

    I know exactly what you mean, fibergirl. At least we know not to take it personally if that interview invitation doesn't come. There are some amazing people on this board who got turned away (sometimes more than once).

    Happy Holidays everyone. If it's anyone who's going to receive the mail last (unless it's email), I would be that person. I live far far far away. Trying to focus on my A&P final this Thursday. I'd rather find out after my final. I don't want to be so excited or too disappointed. BTW, I have not started my Christmas shopping yet. My work has kept me busy. Congrats teenyjo. I was looking at Portland's prereqs after seeing your acceptance. It looks way harder to get into than UCSF.

    I am thinking that this letter will come to us by Monday, considering mid December is this Saturday. Crossing my fingers. I have two trips to attend if I do get the invitation: one in Midwest America to see my family and the other to the "Yay" Area.

    Hello,
    I too applied for the MEPN program at UCSF. My specialty is midwifery and like doulalove and birthrevolution I am also a doula in the Bay Area. Good luck to everyone and don't stress out ^_^
    ps: I haven't gotten the interview invitation yet, but I am awaiting patiently.

    Hi guys
    Been checking out the board for a while and since I'm anxiously awaiting my letter I thought I'd join the group. I'm a paramedic with experience dating back to when I started as an EMT in 2000. Did pretty well on the GRE, my grades are good (very good if you throw out one horrible year when I was 18), and I have some volunteer experience. I hope all of us make it in since everyone here seems to be a great candidate. Any wild predictions of my chances would be amusing and any other comments welcomed. Good luck to all!!!
