Since us Missourians didn't have something, I decided to create this for all of us.

A round of emails came out today: looks like the top few were accepted, but I (and many others) were not offered a spot.

And the wait continues for my state school..

Does anyone know about how many people they admit each round?

IIRC: Ms. Easton said it was gonna be like 5 or 6 this month, so it's not surprising that most everyone got skipped over

edit: and more the next month and so on until the class is filled up

Hey guys,

I've been complete at Mizzou since 8/20, but I haven't heard anything from them. Should I call? Did you hear anything from them before you got your interview invite? (I'm IS with a good GPA/MCAT.) Thanks.

Give them a call and make sure you're complete

edit: nevermind, forgot they send an email. you might just need to be patient, but it can't hurt to call and ask to get some more info.

Hey guys! I'll join the very small Mizzou club here!

I'm in-state and just got an invite yesterday for 1/13. Hooray! :D

So, it sounds like the committe meets 1x/mo, toward the end of the month, to determine acceptances?

Anyone know if you were passed over the first time -- whether you will hear a yes/no/wait every meeting?

Yup. Yes/No/Wait until March when the "Big Selection" happens and the "Waitlist Ranking" is produced.

I wish I was more creative and could have come up with more impressive names for the lists. *sigh*

Funny story about that. This is the first year where the ranking will *not* be released, but you can call and Ms. Easton and she will tell you which third you are in.

Huh. That's interesting- I hadn't heard that. I mean, it's not like we were obsessively keeping track of what number they were at last year or anything.... :whistle: :oops:

I can tell we have very different senses of humor, 'cause that story doesn't sound very funny to me. :p

Huh. That's interesting- I hadn't heard that. I mean, it's not like we were obsessively keeping track of what number they were at last year or anything.... :whistle: :oops:

Seriously, who would be so obsessed? Rediculous. Oh, wait. I did...uh...nevermind.

Yeah, that's news to me, as well. I'm giving the tour today (Hello, Mizzou Med applicants interviewing today!! See you at noon for a tour and lunch. :thumbup:) If I remember, I'll ask why the change of heart on the rankings.

Realistically, they're right. Knowing which third you're in is probably sufficient. The first third (historically) has always been accepted, the second third will probably be accepted (we went through 63 if I remember correctly), and the last third are unlikely to get a call. Your actual number doesn't tell you much.

But we sure had fun making contests out of what day the OME would hit what number on the waitlist. Ahhh. Good times. Good times. Seems like forever ago that we did that.

Here's the link to Mizzou's interview thread:

http://more.studentdoctor.net/interviewlist.php?school=118

People can post about their experience as well as what they liked/didn't like about the school

You can also get to it by clicking on "Medical" at the top and scrolling down to "School Interview Feedback" and find U. of Missouri on the list.

Hope this helps some!!

Today at 7 o'clock:

This letter is to inform you that the status of your application to the University of Missouri School of Medicine is unchanged.

The Admissions Committee meets weekly to discuss applicants. Applicants are rank ordered by Committee vote. Each month we will offer acceptances to a small number of those applicants highest on the rank-ordered list. Applicants not accepted during one selection round will remain on the list for future monthly selections. Your name was not in the group to be admitted to the School of Medicine at this time. You remain on our listing of candidates for consideration at future meetings of the committee.

We anticipate that the Admissions Committee will conclude its work in late February. At the conclusion of our interview season, all candidates will be informed of their final status ( e.g. accepted, placed on alternate list, or denied).

Please feel free to telephone our Admissions Office (573-882-9219) if you have any questions regarding the admissions process.

Good luck everyone. We should have word by tonight if the last few months are any indication.

I wonder if anyone has gotten in after being held at least 1 month, or if they are just accepting from that month's interviewsers and passing everyone else on until the big decision day. Do we have any information on this?

I called yesterday evening around four and they said they were sending out decision emails that night...but still nothing! Who knows when we will hear... maybe they got behind on Friday and we can expect one on Monday. Wishful thinking...but there's a chance!

Same. I doubt they accept people after their first month of consideration. Until February that is.

Hey guys!

I've been MIA since appearing once here, but thought I'd check in.

I had GREAT interviews two weeks ago and really enjoyed my visit to Mizzou!

I got the "status unchanged" message yesterday too (but didn't find that out until this morning). I totally did not expect to find that e-mail in my inbox (sent on a Sunday, no less!) . . . particularly after stalking my e-mail like it was my job on Thursday night and Friday all day. Bizarro. This process is such a killer . . . best of luck to everyone next month! :luck:

I am a little confused, though . . . is the waitlist made at the end of Feb.? I thought it wasn't made until sometime in March, so I was assuming next month would be like this month, and then we'd get our "big decision" news toward the end of March. Anyone able to clear that up?

Since there is a newer admissions director now (this is her second full year), things could be changing. However, this is how it worked last year:

Admissions decisions were given out monthly from October through January. Only a few people will get acceptances each month, and everyone else remains in the "continue to be reviewed" pool.

In February, NO DECISIONS WERE GIVEN OUT. Nada. The message was sent ahead of time to advise of this. This is because the admissions committee is preparing the official wait list, which goes out on or around March 15.

Since there are 96 in each class, on/around March 15, the number of acceptances given at that time will be 96 - (number of acceptances already + Conley/Bryant Scholars). At this time, anyone not in that initial 96 will either be a) put onto a waitlist of 96 or b) sent a rejection letter. An email will be sent to everyone on the same day informing of the updated status.

Last year and in previous years waitlistees were informed of their specific number on the waitlist. This year there are rumors that waitlistees will be told they are in top 1/3, middle 1/3, or bottom 1/3. No clarification of that from the OME yet, though. As a rule of thumb, the top 1/3 is probably going to get in, the middle 1/3 is on the fence, and the bottom 1/3 probably needs to make alternate plans, but you never know.

Sent last year on 2/22/08, from the Admissions Coordinator:

Dear Applicant,

This e-mail is being sent to all applicants who have not yet been accepted to the School of Medicine.

Historically, the Admissions Committee has completed its work in late February and the final selection of candidates was made during the last week of February. This year, we have had an increase in the number of applications as well as an increase in the number of interviews offered.

As a result, the Admissions Committee will NOT be accepting another group of students in February.
Instead, the Admissions Committee will complete the interview season in mid-March and will then make the final selections.

You can expect to receive an e-mail informing you of your final status by March 21, 2008. At that time, you will find out that you have been: 1) accepted, 2) placed on the alternate list, or 3) denied. If you are placed on the alternate list, you will be told where you stand on the rank-ordered list.

Again, some things may have changed for this year, specifically the issue with knowing rank on the alternate list.

I talked with the Dean last week and she mentioned that they were not interviewing into March like they did last cycle. So with any luck, this cycle will get some answers a little earlier. :clap:
