    Congratulations 3xmom! Now if they would just get back to me. After multiple tries I finally got someone on the phone who didn't have anything to say to me other than "keep waiting."

    At the risk of jinxing myself, I'd even be happy with a rejection at this point, just to be out of this not-knowing limbo.

    I didn't apply to UTMB / didn't get in. I posted a few times here asking for info.

    On his behalf, thanks for the positive words.

    So...rejected. Trying to make sense of this, after all the hoops I've jumped through: 2 interviews in which I was told I was a good candidate (one interviewer ranked me "highly recommended"), an "Exemplary" TEAS V ranking (93.6 composite score; 100 on science alone), a decent GPA (not perfect, but certainly not bad; I've seen people with similar GPAs and lower TEAS scores get accepted or at least wait listed), what I was told was a good personal statement, and months of waiting. That may have been the worst; if they were just going to reject me, I wish they would have done it earlier instead of giving me months of hope only to turn around and crush that hope.

    I think I just need to take a few days to wallow then start getting ready for the Spring application cycle. Thanks everyone for the support.

    By e-mail, so make sure you keep checking! Check in spam too, because my interview e-mail got sent my spam.

    Does anyone know what the dorms are like? I'm trying to debate whether I want to live in a dorm or apartment.

    Have you guys bought your UT scrubs yet? I'm unsure of whether or not we're suppose to purchase them from UTMB. So excited!

    I purchased a set from utscrubs.com which was a site that was recommended on our FB page but from what I understand we can buy them anywhere as long as they are the right color etc. The set I bought with tax and shipping came to 58.18.

    emilyelaine12, I found the link and just sent you a PM. There is a TON of helpful information on it and the people who set it up for us seem to do a wonderful job of answering all of our questions.

    Thanks a lot for the information, 3xmom! Could you also send me the link to our FB page? I've been wondering how to join.
