didn't get the call yet. guess I'm rejected.
No way! They only started making calls yesterday and are supposed to go through the 18th so you still have a good chance! Also, I think emails will go out for people who are waitlisted or on hold. They said they probably aren't rejecting anyone at this point. I hope good news is coming your way
Wait.. they already accepted 7 people on here.. and they interview like 70 per day (accept about 15% or so).. When do emails go out? Anyone know?
Congrats to all of you getting acceptances. I hope there are still a good number of spots left by the time my interview comes in february. Those of you that have been there, did it seem like a campus that would be family friendly? I have two children and a spouse and have heard some schools are very family friendly and others not so much...
Congrats to all that were accepted so far! I got a call from a 989 area code Thursday afternoon and got all excited. I was going to answer it, but my phone rang only twice. No voice-mail or anything. It was probably an odd coincidence. Well, hopefully I get an actual call next week.
Those that were accepted could you please share your stats and extra curricular activities.
Work part time at the campus Rec Center, volunteered abroad for 4 weeks, shadowed for 4 weeks, play softball at my college, tutoring/mentoring, a few other here and there volunteering/leadership positions/activities all mostly having to do with children.
From a rural Michigan area (I think this helped a lot).
"After careful review of your application materials, the admissions review committee has decided to place your application on hold for further consideration. We will re-evaluate your application later in the admission cycle and communicate more information about your application status at that time"
What does that mean? How is it different from being waitlisted?
how are your stats? IS?
What was your major? My stats and extracurricular are almost identical to yours except a bit more clinical related volunteering. Although I am out of state rural not instate. My entire family grew up in Michigan and graduated from Ann Harbor and I would really like to be at CMED!
"Thank you for your email. After interviewing, application status can change to one of the following: offer, waitlist or hold.
Waitlisted applications have already been reviewed by the Admissions Committee and offers can be made to those candidates without further review. Should additional positions become available, the Admissions Committee will then review applications from the candidates with a hold status."
Can anyone that interviewed in December confirm if the process was only MMI or if it was MMI plus a 30-minute individual interview (which the website briefly mentions once)? Thank you!
And congrats to everyone that was accepted!
Hi, I interviewed on 12/1 and it was just MMI. There was no 30-minute individual interview. Good luck!
Thanks a lot for the info! That'll really help me narrow down how I practice
I've been running through practice scenarios with a friend who also had an MMI elsewhere, and it got me thinking... is there any idea how many stations there are and how much time we have to read the prompt/answer the question? Or is that supposed to be a surprise?
When my friend interviewed, the email he received had all of this information, and also let him know that they are not to bring pen/paper.
If I remember correctly they do provide this information in an email you get about the interview invite... From my email "To learn more about the CMED Multiple Mini Interview Day program and to schedule your interview:
1. Log in: applymed.cmich.edu"
Try the website for the info they want you to know prior, due to a disclosure form I signed I don't want to give any info away I am not supposed to. Also try calling the office the staff is friendly I bet they can answer your questions. Good luck preparing!
Grading system will be pass/fail. Curriculum is nearly wholly team-based learning, and therefore there is a huge emphasis on supporting one-another through peer-teaching and small group work. One of the longitudinal courses mentioned on the first page of this thread involves going out to clinical sites on a weekly basis and observing/shadowing different components of healthcare system (including billing, for example) to understand the big picture of how healthcare is run. This is part of the early clinical exposure.
Graduate housing is under construction at a nearby lot on campus (literally 2 min walk), which will offer housing for couples, 1 BR, 2/3 BR (my tour guide was not sure), and 4 BR, starts from $300+. There will be washer/dryer and all other needed appliances. I think she said that some of the units will also have furniture already in place, but at a higher price. In any case, it's still under construction, but looks to be a few months away from completion by what I saw from afar.
I've been reading up on their website. Do you have to go into primary care after med school? I don't mind practicing in Michigan, but I don't want to be too far in the UP.
