    I'm applying. Just filled out the app. I've heard they do everything on a later schedule. I visited the school when I was in Israel last April... one of the students said I could still apply for the 2011 class...

    go on google and look up "sackler 2015" on the sdn forums and people post what their stats were and whether or not they got in. But your scores look very good so you shouldn't worry. Did anyone get an interview request? I just got one today.

    Stats: 3.56 gpa and 31P MCAT

    Seeing this thread makes me so happy! I'm currently a first-year student at Sackler. I gave up an allopathic spot in the U.S. to come here (best decision EVER). All of your stats look great (any MCAT 27+ & GPA 3.4+ stands a solid chance of admission). I wouldn't worry so much about those - once you get the invite for the interview it's much more about showing them you have an easy-going personality that'll adjust swimmingly to life in another country. & if you're serious about coming here, you need to SHOW THEM. A lot of resources every year are spent on trying to weed out qualified applicants who don't really want to go here. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot them my way :]]]

    When is your interview!? I wasn't expecting interview invites for Sackler to come out for atleast another month or two. I should probably get my application submitted!

    thank you for your enthusiasm. what do you love about it? How early in your training are you exposed to patient encounters and how early do you need to be Hebrew fluent?

    I have an interview first. I've been looking for their latest matching list all over the web, but nada. Is there anyone here (maybe the 1st year students at tel aviv?) who might have an inkling as for how the matching list looked like? thanks.

    my interview was in San Diego. We didn't really talk about anything specific except if I was willing and able to study in another country, specifically Israel. We talked for about an hour, mainly about his experiences with medical school and we also talked about some medical treatments. He asked me about some of my work in the Emergency department. I think mainly he was looking to see if A. I could study in Israel, and B. I could hold a normal conversation and communicate well. It was very relaxed.

    "I think that mainly he was looking to see if A. I could study inIsrael, and B. I could hold a normal conversation and communicate well. It was very relaxed." tendus.

    I couldn't agree more! The Interview was the best interview I have had so far!! Mine was in Florida. We had a very interesting conversation that lasted about forty five minutes. It was very relaxed and diverse.

    I guess we have to wait a long one here... according to the website they start notifying students starting March all the way through August. Do you think that they will evaluate early applicants' interview before the end of this year? Wouldn't that be nice?

    Maybe, I mean they are having interviews wayyyyy earlier than last cycle. I think the earliest interviews went out in January last cycle, so it seems like they are starting earlier this time. Could be due to inc in applicants though.

    Hey Guys
    for those of you with II, how long did it take between application complete and interview? Also, did they tell you when they received your transcripts or LORs or do you have to keep emailing the admission office?
    Good luck everyone!

    I had an interview in Seattle two weeks ago, and got asked the same set of questions others have already posted. My interviewer was really focused on making sure I could handle moving to Israel for 4 years and still do well in school.

    Hey guys, I'm also applying to Sackler. I was invited to interview 11/21, and I went to the interview this past Friday, 1/13. It was pretty laid back. I basically spent 2 hours having a conversation with my interviewer, which included a lot of him praising Sackler and talking about how much he liked it when he was a student there. He told me he's going to strongly recommend me to Admissions. So I'm hoping for the best and preparing for a long wait, since it seems Sackler takes forever to make a final decision.

    Just interviewed, it went well. (Applied at the end of December, was offerred an interview 2 days after submitting my application) The interview was very relaxed and short. She went over my application with me, and then asked some questions about my experiences with Israel and why I want to be a doctor.

    Please post your decisions as you get them! Very anxious to hear back!

    With 20 research publications in cardiology and oncology journals, I hope that admissions considers this because I am serious about moving to Israel for medicine. Hope to see some of you there but I have not heard back regarding scheduling an interview.

    I think the program is intended for people that want to come back and do residency in the states or Canada (if possible). It seems that with the Ben Gurion Med school some people each year stay and do residency in Israel. If you look at the match list for Sackler from the most recent year I don't see anybody match in Israel. You could always do your residency in the states and then move back to Israel.

    Of course I would do residency in the states. It is all about the USMLE.

    I received a request for a second interview, not sure what to make of it. I know of one person who got one last year and he got in, so that's a positive way to look at it. Or maybe they thought I was weird and they want a second opinion. Although i thought my first interview went really well, i spent and hour talking to the guy and he told me he was for sure going to recommend me. I don't know what the deal is...

    I don't know what a second interview means, it can't be bad though - they want to get to know you better!

    I called today, the school said the admissions committee won't be meeting until late March. She said they only go over some of the applications during that time, so even if you applied or interviewed early, they might not have even reviewed your application.

    If you don't hear back at that time, I wouldn't worry because it doesn't mean they don't like you, it means they probably didn't see your application yet.

    Good luck everyone!

    I asked specifically about decisions, so maybe they meet to review applications, but not to make any formal decisions.

    When I spoke to the admissions office this week I was told that decisions were going to go out in march, and they earlier you interviewed, the more likely you'd hear earlier. The woman also said that they were going to try to have the decisions out as early in march as possible. Good luck to everyone still waiting!

    It's looks as thought the application process goes until June 1st and that final decisions are released from march to August. I'm still waiting for word on whether I am going for an interview. Is anyone else waiting for a first interview?

    Received an email indicating one outstanding item that was then delivered by the next day. Nothing since... I should follow-up, also just published another paper since but I don't suppose that they are interested in a paper that uses milti modality imaging for assessing aortas...

    Good for you! :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumb up:

    I called the office and the nice lady insisted that she had never heard about a second interview... So... I am not sure what is going on here...

    But it seems that I've had my expectations high before registering to this website...
