    Cool. That's a little relief knowing I have a little time to get everything paid... I'm still a little hesitant to buy books though... Think I'm gonna wait on my phone call (fingers crossed). One more day down... just a few more to go! Nerves suck!

    Losing transcripts is a common occurance there at Southwest. I had the same thing happen to me and was forced to pay overnight fees from three different places to get duplicates sent in time. They required the official copies. It was a PITA.
    And I see that it has been edited out, but I have one guess who the lady who called was. She's rather unpleasant, so get used to it. During orientation she was rude and abrupt with everyone.
    I would wait about books until you get the book list. They change books sometimes. I know our OB book and the Mental Health book changed within the last year. Just wait until you know what the official texts will be.

    @scifi - I considered that when looking at books, but figured it was worth the gamble. For instance, I found the Foundations book online for $9. I figured was case scenario I lose $100, best case I save $500.

    My optimism isn't based on anything other than the time line from application deadline to notification last fall. It was less than a month. Our notice may be a little slower if they factor summer break into the equation of advanced notice.
    Being that a uniformed index score is used for ranking, there shouldn't be too much deliberation involved in selection.

    I agreed. It shouldn't be that difficult to rank the index scores and take the first 60. I read on a thread from last year's fall app class, that someone received notification March 28th.

    March 28? You and your research are raining on my optimistic parade.

    Well, it looks as if we've waited long enough. I'm ready for the phone call. I usually don't answer the calls I don't recognize, but lately I've been accepting calls from people I hate talking to so I don't miss "the phone call." Yep, I'm ready to return to my normal ways. Good luck everyone.

    The phone call will come from a number that starts with 333-XXXX. I hope that helps :-) Man o Man do I remember the days of waiting. Good luck to all of you!!

    @grpman - I'm glad to know I'm not the only one doing that.

    @nikki - Thanks for the info, that means a few less accepted calls.
