Hi everyone, I have been following this forum for a while but have not yet posted. I am a second time applicant and I applied to 14 programs. I felt pretty confident that I should be able to get four interviews but at this time I have two. I am excited to have those two, but can't help but feel a bit disheartened after all of the work I put into re-applying and strengthening my application over the last couple of years
At this time I still have four programs to hear from (Pitt, USC, USF and UCI) I have contacted each, USC and Pitt replied to me early in the week- both said they are still under review but hope to send out rejection letters in the next several weeks. It looks like there are others here awaiting replies from these programs and I'm just wondering where others are at, if you're assuming they are rejections or if you're holding out. I am an optimist so I want to stay positive but no one will give me a clear answer if I should assume it is unlikely at this point to receive an interview offer. Any input is appreciated.
