The SON decided not to do interviews this time. Students who were admitted early were done so based on academic achievement (GPA & TEAS along with no outstanding prereqs) or they were "rollovers" from the past semester's waiting list for an issue school created - admission sent wrong place, etc.
The have done some interviews this time, but it has been done to clarify issues in their packet - meaning they have been in the admission bubble and the school needed a bit more information.
I know its hard not to, but please don't compare stats. I wish no one would even post them!! Its been said before, but UTMB is NOT a numbers school. Your essay is very important. Someone with "lower stats" may have already been accepted, but no one knows their story, what they said in their essay. I have a terrible science GPA, but I also have a story with it (5Fs in one semester, 3 science courses, after I had stillborn baby) I applied to 7 (SEVEN!) Programs and UTMB was the ONLY one who would even look at me. I'm one of the top students in my class.
Take a break from AN. Stop comparing. Its not fair to you or to other people (and stop posting stats!) Focus on your current classes (if any) Get immunizations and CPR in order and generally stop worrying. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and there is purpose to every trial in life. So, you don't get in, the world will continue turning. You cry a bit, and try again. Nothing in life worth having comes easy. You'll be where you belong at just the right time.
