Texting has bothered me for quite sometime and this is just one more reason. Texting: is NOT having a real conversation with someone. Can you hear me? It is NOT! Can you hear me now? Mind you it does seems to be the norm these days and personally it makes me sad. But why is it so hard these days to actually pick up the phone and talk or better yet see someone and have a face to face meaningful conversation? Are we just too busy these days?! Are we so lazy? If texting is the way to go because we (medical personal and patient) are too busy to take few minutes of our time to talk then we ALL loose. Read the article and you tell me are we just THAT busy?

      Hi all!
      I just received an email that I was being extended an interview that was about 3 weeks out from the current date.
      I responded around 4 hours after I received the email to accept the interview, but I received an email a couple hours later that they were going to have to reschedule and that “they would email me when another date opens up”. 
      Has this happened to anyone else??
      Should I be worried? Or do they send out more interview invites than spots that they have open for the day because they know that some people may decline? 
      Thanks!

      Hello! I was just curious if anyone this year has found themselves in the scenario the title suggests? Also if you are from a different years class and experienced the scenario of the title, when did you receive the acceptance? Was it soon after or was it closer to the June 1st deadline. I really appreciate anyone that can offer some insight! I'm sure there are plenty of us sitting in this situation just cringing over this waiting process.

      Hi everyone,
      I am a pre-PA school who recently had an interview at MCPHS Boston PA Program.  When I visited there for my interview, they said the result will come out in 2 to 3 weeks, but they did not specify how they would let us know.  Does anybody know if they email us or call us whether we got rejected or accepted?  Also, should I contact the school if I do not hear back after 3 weeks?
      Thanks!
