    Anybody know how often the admissions committee meet to go through the applications? I see that some have already been invited for an interview, and I'm wondering when they'll review mine. I submitted mine a little late, around 7/20, b/c I added to school later

    I assume "Your application is on hold for further review." is a bad sign...

    That sucks...I'm sorry. I don't think anybody on hold got to interview last year. I would focus on other schools at this point :)

    You can go to the communication status page and also check on the emails that they have already or will be sending you. This area will be updated before you receive any email most likely. Good luck.

    BTW, this was the email I got:

    Got an interview invite! Still trying to decide on my day. Submitted on 7/5.

    Should I go for August 26th or October 7th? The September days don't really work for me, I have another interview then.

    How many schools are you all up to now? I'm getting paranoid that I haven't added enough...I'm 99% sure looking at people's MDApps will be the death of me (and also my bank account). I think I have 26 now?

    ...is it really only August? I guess they weren't lying when they said this is a loooonnngggggg process/year.

    Yeah, look at the old threads from last year. People received invites all the way to December/Feb (in general terms with all schools)....


    I'm broke as a joke, don't have enough money to buy more secondaries/primaries... I think we just have to be patient and :xf:

    I got 39 schools in AMCAS and completed 34 secondaries. Still working on Commonwealth but unsure whether to do it or not. I'm paranoid too cuz this is my 3rd cycle and if I really want an interview invite like my life depended on it :luck:

    My first two interview in less than 2 weeks. Yet, no news from OU yet. Perhaps didn't make the cut.

    I would rent a car. Outside of the airport cabs are almost inexistent in metro detroit and they will cost you a lot. Rochester is not close to detroit and a cab would be at least $60 each way and a huge hassel. :thumbdown:
