    Time Zone Difference - Interviews

    Hey everyone, I somehow just realized the two interviews I signed up for were eastern standard time. So they will be starting at 6 AM in the morning, not 9 AM. I feel like an idiot. Do you think they will allow me to reschedule for the PM time? Is it worth emailing the admissions department and...

    Hi guys! Super nervous in this awkward waiting situation. Wondering which schools have sent out interview invites so far? I copied from c/o 2020 because I am too lazy to change it. If someone wants to edit out Schools that do not interview you can, but this is the comprehensive list from that...

    No interviews yet, what's wrong?

    Can anyone comment about not receiving any interviews or rejections at this point and what they think of my chances of a post-December interview? I've had pretty much no contact from my schools. Here is my info: -Canadian/US dual citizen -Queen's University BScH Life Sciences and Computing...

    Submitted secondaries in September, when should I expect to get interviews by?

    I retook the mcat in July and improved my score to 515 (old score was 507). Because of this I only submitted my application in August and then got in secondaries in September. It's now almost Thanksgiving and I still haven't gotten any interview invites yet. Should I be worried? Or is there...

    Following up after pre-II rejection

    This could be inappropriate/futile, but I've heard stories of people appealing rejections and wanted to hear some thoughts. I was recently rejected (pre-interview) from my dream school, which does not come as a surprise since the school is very competitive. I live very close to their campus, and...

    Do quick interview invites mean anything?

    If a school gets back to you in under a week, does that mean they think you're an exceptionally strong candidate?

    Latest MCAT retest date?

    I am in somewhat of an unique situation. My previous MCAT is enough to get me to all my secondaries. However, it is not enough to get me into all my interviews. I guess you could call me a "near miss" this year. With a 510 MCAT and 3.87 cGPA, I received two interviews last cycle. Alas, I...

    For the people who interviewed after the new year

    For the people who interviewed after the new year in the past cycles, where you offered acceptances or were the interviews mostly for waitlist positions? I know its different depending on the school and depending on the applicant, but I'd appreciate it if people can share their personal...

    Should I go to remaining interviews? Va Tech, WVU, NYMC?

    U Maryland - Accepted Penn State - Awaiting decision Va tech - II WVU - II NYMC - II At this point, my reasons to continue interviewing is: 1) Financial/scholarship offers (but that’s in Spring) 2) Higher ranked schools 3) Curriculum & atmosphere (would I be happy living and learning here?)...

    "Meet faculty" in lieu of interview??

    MS4 from Cali currently doing an away rotation at one of the East Coast programs I applied to. I believe I have generally done well, clicked with all the faculty, gotten only good feedback, etc. I met with the program director this week and we discussed my application and he ended our discussion...

    Question about Interview Invites

    If a school is on a rolling admissions, and you see that people who were complete (submitted secondaries) after you submitted yours get II. Does that mean that you're pretty much not going to get an II? Thanks!

    hey all! i'm starting to get antsy. i've turned in nearly all of my secondaries, and i've been watching the school-specific forums and seeing people get II's already. the self-doubt is seriously sinking in... what if i don't get any interviews?? how have others coped with this feeling...

    Schools that have given out all interview invites for this cycle.

    Anyone interested in making a list of schools that have sent out all of their IIs (i.e., are done with interview invites for the 2016-2017 cycle)? Many schools are silent as to rejections (or are rejecting at the end of the cycle), therefore, it may be helpful for people to know what schools...

    Grade Change After Interview

    I updated a bunch of schools with the final grades from my grad program and have since received an interview invite from one of the schools I updated. Recently, I was made aware that an "A" I received was meant to be recorded as a "B+": all of this AFTER I already sent my updates. Obviously I...

    Do Admissions Offices Sometimes Show Up As Unknown Phone Numbers

    I recently have been getting several calls from a number marked "Unknown" (i.e. it literally just says unknown and no number shows up). I know some medical schools give interview invites over the phone so out of paranoid/wishful thinking, I'm starting to wonder if some admissions offices for...

    When will I start hearing back about IIs/Rejections?

    If my application was complete at most of my medical schools on 7/27 (my ugrad takes a long time to send committee letters unfortunately), when should I expect to start hearing back about IIs and rejections? It's making me uncomfortable seeing so many people on SDN hearing back and I'm just here...

    Monday E-mail Stalking

    So idk about you guys but every Monday I wake up at 9am and refresh my e-mail probably every 5 minutes until it's Friday evening. I've been doing this since the beginning of July when secondaries came out. This is my first application cycle and this wait is KILLING me (and my phone battery). I...

    Does distance to travel affect interview invitations?

    For example, would a school on the East Coast be more likely to invite a marginal but still feasible applicant who lived nearby than an identical applicant who lived on the West Coast? It seems unreasonable to invite someone to spend $$$ on a plane ticket if they'd be on the weak end of the...

    Applied super late... Like, yesterday.

    So, sent in secondaries yesterday. IF I was to receive any IIs, (I know that's a big if), when might they be headed my way? Do they go in order of submission, i.e. I'll get them at the end of interview season? Or could I receive one from a school before someone else whose been waiting for weeks...

    Dental School Payments + Interviews

    Hey Everyone, I am confused about how dental schools go about cashing the checks we send in for the supplemental. None of my checks have been cashed by any schools, even the three schools that I got an interview from. When I called two of the schools that I did not get an interview from, they...
