    Are there significant scholarships/tuition cuts available for the first matriculating class?

    What is your guys' opinion on the planned rotation sites?

    Major scholarships available to about 50% of the charter class...if accepted you'll be able to apply shortly after. Scholarship categories include QU undergrad, interest in primary care, first generation college student, academic excellence, and maybe one or two other...?

    I'm also wondering about the clinical sites. I'd love to go check them out. Seems like the agreements are still in the works or something...not positive though.

    It was by snail mail, they were probably sent to people who got interviews so far. If you didn't get it today, maybe tomorrow or the next day?

    It was a very nice change to feel wanted in this cycle rather than always the other way around, haha.

    I thought you guys were being tongue-in-cheek. There were actual cards?

    They were actual cards. I got one in the mail yesterday. BTW I haven't received an interview invite yet so I'm not sure if it's just to everyone who completed a secondary who received a card....

    Same! That's what I thought the "holiday cards" people were talking about above were. What day/time did you interview?

    About 3-4 weeks, but it hasn't been consistent... People got them in a week.

    Hi guys, I was also accepted yesterday. I interviewed almost two weeks ago so the turnaround is pretty quick.

    For everyone who has interviewed and/or heard back whether rejection or acceptance, not only what are stats, but what are your ECs? Research? Volunteer work? Masters degree? Hobbies? It seems they are looking for more than just stats. Hoping to get an interview!!!

    Congrats to all who have been interviewed and accepted...good luck to all those waiting!

    Does anyone know where/how to send thank-you letters? I sent them, but they got sent back. It said there was no mail receptacle!? I used this address: 370 Bassett Road, North Haven, CT 06473.

    I dropped mine off in person. I'd just call admissions and find out from them. They're so nice!

    Absolutely deranged, we need better access to mental healthcare, better awareness of mental health indicators, and better reporting.

    Counseling can't be taboo, there are sick people who need help

    Hi everyone, so the address to send thank you letters to the Frank Netter SOM is actually 275 Mount Carmel Ave, N3-MED, Hamden CT 06518.

    Mail that is addressed to 370 Bassett Rd in North Haven runs the risk of being forwarded to Anthem.

    The SDN interview feedback page for this school says that the three respondents so far were only interviewed by two people each. Is it true that there are only two interviews now, as opposed to the three interviews in the official schedule? Could someone who has already interviewed here comment on this? Thanks! :)

    No, I just don't think there was an option with three interviews. We all interviewed with Dr. Ellison (30 mins) and two faculty (45 mins). Interviews were generally relaxed and conversational.

    The day does consist of three interviews. However, the surveyors may have reported two because everyone interviews with the Dean of admissions. The two faculty you interview will will vary.

    I have an interview here on January 18 (PM) and was wondering if there are any guys interested in splitting the cost of a car and hotel near Bradley Airport. Send me a PM if interested and best of luck to everyone else interviewing!
