    I got the call earlier this afternoon! I can't overstate how incredibly thankful and humbled I am to join the entering of class of 2012, especially if it will be at THE Ohio State University! It's never a bad thing to get a call from Dr. Capers! :D

    To everyone that didn't receive a call today, going through last year's thread shows that there were more than a handful of applicants that never received the call yet received accepted statuses. In other words, just hang tight until Tuesday morning. You're not out of the running yet! :luck:

    I really hope so. I really liked OSU when I visited and Dr. Capers is seriously so cool. Idk what role the awesomeness of the Dean of Admissions should play when picking a med school, but so far OSU is definitely number one in that category.

    I hear you loud and clear, my friend! He is definitely someone that I would like on my side throughout med school! Dr. Capers is really supportive, and he definitely recognizes how much the students contribute to the school! :)

    Just hang tight, check your status on Tuesday, and let us know how it goes! If on the off-chance that you are deferred, which I will pray doesn't happen, let them know that you are very, very interested! At my interview, they said that they definitely do take deferred students, so don't give up then! Again, I hope that you don't even have to go down that route! :luck:

    Hmm "Deferred - Decision Pending". Better than a waitlist since they continue to review your application (does OSU have a formal waitlist?). I saw some people got in after getting this status for a month or two last year, but since they overaccepted last year there's less spots. Oh well, grats to those who got acceptances, OSU definitely impressed me.

    Could someone explain how exactly the Independent study Pathway works? It seems like the Integrated pathway is the typical med school curriculum, while the independent study pathway just gives students online access to all the material and expects them to just teach themselves...?

    so when accepted you go online to confirm, then they send you a letter and you return that with 25$ to confirm.

    the online thing i did, but the letter/check is only if you choose them to matriculate at right? because i thought originally this was to hold my spot, but the letter itself has a due date of may 15th.... anyone know if this is supposed to be a now thing or what?

    It will be via status update. You'll receive an email that says your status has been updated, so you'll have to log-in to the status page to find out. As far as when is concerned, it will have to be sometime after that Wednesday. I would watch their twitter for updates! Good luck! :luck:

    I interviewed at this school yesterday. Everything you need is within walking distance of the college, and it seems like exciting changes (eg, new curriculum and buildings) will be in place for our class's M1 and M3. I hope to receive good news in two weeks!

    i liked that aspect too, but the newer curriculum is kind of turning me off. They seem to be heading towards a lot more independent/online learning, and a lot less lecture + the fact its the first year they are trying it

    They told us 3-4 hours of in-class lecture each day. What do you consider independent study?

    Living near the medical campus is pretty safe(not so common, I found during interviewing last year) and literally anything you could want is really within walking distance. Nice deal.

    Trust me.... Having less lecture is far better than having more.

    Practically speaking, is deferred a separate status to waitlisted here? I know that officially it is, but have any current students been successful after receiving this status?
    Thanks

    Last year when I interviewed (very late in the cycle) Dr. Capers said specifically that 15 students had been pulled from the Deferred list. I was placed on that list after my interview, but several people were rejected so they definitely do reject post interview...So at least for now Deferred is better than nothing. But no, Deferred = up for re-review after they are able to interview other qualified applicants to see if you make the cut - not a wait-list unfortunately :(
