I have also been invited to interview at the University of California-Irvine, but we are trying to work out the date. And I've just discovered that Mount Sinai never recieved my full appliaction, so I will likely be denied, by default (Long story!). But 7 out of 9, or more realistically, 7 out of 8 ain't bad!! More details to come....

Thanks. And that's just for the first 2! I've got 7 total. I will be so worn out when it's all over!
