    I read that post last night but didnt' see anything about how long till interviews after secondaries.

    Hopefully they don't take long to decide if they want to interview you.

    SOBEIT & generallobster,

    I got an invitation yesterday! What day are you scheduled to interview? I was asked to come on Sept. 25th. Are either of you two already involved with the military in some way?

    I just got an interview invite too. I sent in my secondary about three weeks ago. I do know that they screen a bit though, so if your app is borderline it might take a bit longer. Seriously, though, don't worry, this is still extremely early in the process.

    Hey everyone!

    I'm a first year at USUHS now, so if any of you all have any questions, just pm me - i remember how frustrating it was to try to find out about the school and military medicine without prior military experience. As for the interview turn around time, i got an email within a week of submitting my application, but know some people who waited a while. Good Luck!!

    Congrats on all the interviews....

    I have a quick question.

    Does USUHS have an EDP? or is it solely a regular decision process?

    And to answer the questions above, I submitted my secondary about 2 1/2 weeks ago and got an interview.

    Good luck.

    I don't think USUHS has EDP. But for certain, it has rolling admission process.

    I sent my secondary 3 weeks ago, just got the interview email.
    Anyone else going on 10/2? Good luck to everyone!!:)

    Hi Brats and medboy,

    Ruby is correct. USUHS does not have an EDP. (It was explicitly stated in my handbook for 2000-2003) However, they are so fast at selecting candidates that on some years (not every year) they actually send acceptances BEFORE 10/15 (AAMC date that schools can send acceptances).

    [USUHS also says they don't adhere to the 10/15 guideline for acceptances in their handbook as well]

    I'm sure that this was said a thousand times on these boards but APPLY EARLY! Everyone I talked with at the school pretty much emphasized that little bit of advice.

    I sent the secondary on 8/6 got an e-mail on 8/21 stating I was selected for an interview on 9/25.

    Looking forward to meeting the 9/25 interviewers in Bethesda!

    I definitely agree with you TJC!

    APPLY EARLY...I applied late last year and basically got the last interview day and then was placed on the waitlist. Obviously, I didn't get off in time so that's why I am reapplying again this year.

    Good luck people.
