Anyone else interviewing Dec. 14? I am so excited.
Interview invite Jan 9th!! So pumped cuz this is my first choice!!!
So Ohio State is my first choice and I submitted my secondary on 6/27. My GPA is a little below their average and my MCAT is above their average. I never received an e-mail saying my secondary was complete, but my status changed to application received. So I told myself everything is fine and I would patiently wait for an interview invite. Now it is 4 months later and I am concern my number one choice has placed me on hold. Is it in appropriate for me to call admissions and ask about my application?
You can always call and ask. If you're wondering about something as trivial as to whether you're application is complete or not, call and set your mind at ease. If you're wondering whether you've already been reviewed and passed over or if you're in line for an interview, they might not tell you that kind of information. But why not call and ask? Just be polite, calling won't hurt your chances.
Thanks for the quick response, I'll be calling on monday.
i grew up hearing "round on the ends and HI in the middle, O-HI-O"
be there weds!
Calls start tonight for my interview date
Me too...trying to keep my mind away from it for now.
Who else agrees that it's pretty cruel of them to send out an email telling us to wait by our phones for a call that we might or might not get?
I was avoiding twitter for this reason.
I also grew up in the buckeye indoctrination, Good luck!
Hope you hear some good news!
Hey, at least it as a near definite time slot. I hate waiting on snail mail.
what time does Dr. Capers STOP making acceptance calls? I'd like to know so I can go to sleep.
Has anybody heard anything??
not yet and its killing me. anyone else?
I have not. I don't know what to think at this point.
Nothing here either
the twitter says we'll all hear by november 8. Does that mean nov 8 at midnight? or just sometime during november 8?
Yeah, I haven't heard yet either. Maybe he will be doing calls tomorrow?
biting my nails...
Anyone heard anything?
no one's heard anything yet?
It doesn't seem like it. This is cruel.
It's possible the people called aren't SDNers.
Theoretically (and I am by no means a stats person) , but shouldn't about 50% of us have heard based on pervious posts and data from the admissions office?
It's POSSIBLE but unlikely that not one person called is a poster on sdn.
My math is much different than that. Eventually, about 50% of interviewees will be accepted, but that includes waitlist and people deferred.
He's right. 50% overall acceptance doesn't mean 50% of interviewees get an acceptance right after they interview.
I'm sure you guys are right. I'm just flustered that no one has heard. BSU, have you?
I haven't either, but I am on the deferred list from the last acceptance round
Do they reconsider all previously deferred applicants every time they make admissions decision?
Two weeks ago I called into the admissions office. The secretary told me that they accepted 5 or 6 people off of the deferred list and only 4 people from the previous interview cycle. I am on the deferred list as well.
Wait, so they already accepted 5 or 6 people from deferred list this cycle???
I feel like they're gonna give out less straight acceptances and more off the deferred list because of their over enrollment last year.
Has anyone's status been updated? Mine still says 'Interview Completed'. They said we'd hear today, so it looks like the admissions office is staying late.
Mine still says "Interview Completed" as well. I'm starting to suspect the November 8th deadline was a mistake. The status page says "10 days after your interview", which is what Dean Capers said as well (meaning November 9th for me).
I just got 'Interview Complete' this morning.
I might be wrong... But I'm pretty sure he is going to call tonight. He doesn't usually call on interview/deliberation days (which are mon/wed), and Nov 8th is today. But if it's not tonight, sorry for getting your hopes up.
Maybe, but they tweeted that if you interviewed on the 24th, 26th, or 31st, they would let you know today. Mine was on the 24th, so by the 10 day logic i would have heard back yesterday.
This is ever so random, but I looked at your MDApps profile, and it says you are Arabic. But Arabic is a language . Does it mean you are from the Middle East? Just wondering. As you can see, the waiting game is getting to me, and I am pondering the most nonsensical of things .
Hope you all get the call tonight.
I agree it does not make any sense, but MDapps didn't have a "middle eastern" option so I went with the closest option.
no calls yet????
This is definitely torture.
has anyone heard anything??
I haven't...just check MedStar and my status is still interview complete
it makes me nervous because it seems like nobody has gotten a rejection yet... are we all going to get it at the same time at midnight?
Still no status update. Anyone know whats up, or called the office yet?
I just called the office. They told me the date they sent out was wrong and the actual dates were the 11th and 15th.
