Anyone know the date they'll let people know if they're Rothman finalists or not? Also, any approximate # on how many are invited/apply ?

Thanks!

I got my Ding letter today, it wasn't too bad. They encouraged me to apply as a transfer. DF 1/12.

Good luck to the rest of you all.

How long will it take to move from complete to IR? I've been stuck at complete 11/24.

Acceptance in the mail today. The thin little envelope had me a little worried at first! Apparently they'll send a follow-up acceptance package. Excited!
DF 1/11.

I did mine 1-2 double spaced. Double spaced is standard and means less reading for them.

I have been in review since 12/15, so I called today to see if that was normal or whatever. I checked about 10 minutes before I called... still 12/15. I call and the lady tells me that I went in review today. I check and the date had changed to 1/19. Is that good? Why would I be put in review twice?

Finally sent in my Rothman essay. For a long time I wasn't motivated to write the essay since so many more qualified candidates were also in the running -- crackberry, Managamy, and I forget who else. Then I realized that they are starting to withdraw (some very slowly). Just curious for the Rothman invites out there, how many of you have withdrawn from USC?

My "In Review 12/17" just changed to "In Review 1/19" ... I am so happy to see movement of any kind that I don't care it's not DR yet.

...But really, a DR would be nice. :shock:

I'm working on finalizing my Rothman essay, but have yet to go "In Review," still complete as of 12/10 or so.

I know there was some talk of how to submit the Rothman applications (electronically vs. snail mail). How have you all been handling this?

I mailed mine in (Priority Mail + certified)...I thought the invitation said to mail it. Is anyone e-mailing it as well?

I was invited to apply for the Rothman and have withdrawn from USC.
