    *I found out about my Michigan Interview via status page on the evening of 10/1. They sent me an email officially letting me know the next morning. Status page was updated on 3/6/09 letting me know I was on the middle tier waitlist (basically a rejection). Not too disappointing, I loved Michigan but UCF is really the perfect fit for me.

    Overall I'm thrilled with the result of my application. UCF is starting something great and I'm honored to have been accepted to their program. If I could do it all over again I would have taken my MCAT and submitted my application about 2 months earlier. It probably would have helped me grab another interview or two (not that it would have changed where I ended up). Best of luck to everyone out there applying. I hope this timeline helps you out in your application!
