Default No answer from programs?

Should I wait for an answer from every program I applied to?
Is it possible that I do not hear from them at all or they MUST send me at least something (IV invitation or rejection)?

I've been wondering the same thing... After all, we pay a lot of money to apply, so they should at least send us a rejection letter, so that we can rule out hospitals. Because I don't lose hope until I see a rejection letter...

I hope some invites are still left.:sorry:

Many progs dont respond, and they arent obligated to do so either.
Though I'd keep hope alive, especially for progs that sent out rejections to others, but not to you, means at least you are still being considered. Whether or not you get an interview from those progs then depends on how many ppl decline invites from them, or end up canceling.
