    Hey everybody, I just interviewed yesterday and it's already been said by a lot of other people but it was not stressful at all so anybody still waiting no need to worry. Everybody was really nice, from the M1's who gave us a tour and answered any questions we may not have wanted to ask the faculty, all the way up to the dean, who was a really genuine guy with a hell of an interesting life. He had a funny or interesting anecdote for just about every part of the country somebody was from, and he seems to really enjoy talking with students, which is a huge plus in my book. To sum it up I'll just say I was highly impressed by everything I saw and heard yesterday. Good luck to everybody!

    I agree with what jso89 has to say. I think we all had one on one interviews. It almost seemed like there is a list of questions all of them ask, and they are all pretty much listed in the interview feedback. However, some interviewers were said to be a little tougher than others. I think it's all the same questions, but some interviewers responded back with lots to say, while some were a little less chatty/friendly. People were from everywhere: CA, TX, NJ, OH, someone who lived 5 minutes away.

    The campus looks really nice, especially the library. The dean really sold me on the school. Anastasia, who I think is the admissions counselor, specifically told us that they will not be using Webstar to update any statuses about admissions. She said it will take closer to 3 weeks than 2 to get responses back to us because the dean is super swamped at this time. She could guarantee snail mail but they said the administration was still deciding on whether to send out emails or not (weird). The students seem happy and the existing residencies is a huge plus. Good luck to everyone!

    Great day, laid-back interview. I really hope they e-mail out the decisions, I hate having to check my mailbox every day in 110 degree heat!

    YES, same here. I think they're having problems with whatever program IT set up for them. It's definitely acting odd

    I interviewed on 9/1 and they told us to expect something in about 2-3 weeks. I could be wrong, but I got the impression that the admissions committee only meets one day every few weeks and gets through as many files as they can in that day. So it's possible that they only recently met (or maybe they haven't even met yet this year) and all of us will start hearing around the same time.

    They said they need to review like 60-80 applicants, so that probably means your interview group will get reviewed along with our group. I was also 9/1.

    Yeah, remember they had everybody sign that paper at the beginning of the day when they showed the video? That was a dress code and the required technical standards.

    I don't care what anyone says, Dr. Silvagni's mustache is by far the most BA thing on the campus.

    The dean is definitely a chill person, it was kind of interesting listening to him talk to us during the lunch. And as Ravensgal said earlier, he seemed to have a quip about every applicant's location. At least his humor is there.

    I emailed NSU about how and when decisions would be made for the people that interviewed before this week.

    The response was:

    "The admissions decision will be sent by letter. I spoke with the admissions counselor and the first Committee on Admissions met last Friday. Decisions should be forthcoming within a week."


    Check your mail!


    Cheers

    Thanks for looking into it and letting the rest of us know. First meeting was 9/2 huh? I hope that included all of us who interviewed on 9/1. Good luck to everybody waiting and everybody still waiting for interviews.

    This means the decision is going to my house (aka my parents) and they're gonna have to tell me. I'm not sure how I feel about that...

    That's what my interviewer told me; the first committee meeting would be 9/2 and decisions are made there and the mailings come out 1-2 weeks after.

    When I interviewed on 9/1 the admissions counselor said they were still discussing it but as of then she could only say for sure that we would hear by snail mail. I believe somebody earlier in this thread called NSU and was told that we will only be hearing by letter but I may have misread that.

    For anyone still waiting after receiving new MCAT scores, I would call them and check your status. After not hearing anything for a couple weeks after getting my new scores, I just called and they said my status wasn't updated even though they received my scores but that they would change it so that the admissions committee would receive my application and be able to consider it. I've contacted individual people at the school in the last week (with no return calls) but not the general number for admissions. Hopefully now I'll hear something about an interview. *fingers crossed*

    The same exact thing happened to me!! Webstar wasn't updated with my new scores, so I emailed them and they said they'd look into it. I got the interview invite the next day. Good luck, crossing my fingers for you!! :)
