    Nothing to do with campus placements. All paperwork and administrative processes are done through IUPUI. Hopefully we will find out our placements soon though! Next week maybe?!? We will see...

    Phase 1 (pre-clinical) is true pass/fail. We have been told there isn't any ranking. In each class, you must pass the class grade overall and pass the NBME final to receive a "pass". There are also competencies you must pass such as "professionalism," but you basically pass those by not doing anything stupid. On clinical rotations, we will receive grades (honors, high pass, pass, etc). Not exactly sure how clinical grades work.

    Accepted via one.iu.edu today (although it could've changed before because I checked it on a whim).
    I interviewed in November at the Indy campus.

    Still won't believe anything until there's a letter in my hand!

    Well no update on one.iu.edu for me. Guess a bit more waiting. Are they done with interviews? I know they say we will have a decision by June 1st, but do they get those out any sooner?

    Edit: In last year's thread, the alternate list email was sent out the first week of May and rejections sent a week or 2 later.

    Yeah I'm just hoping for a waitlist spot at this point, but I don't know how many of those spots are left for OOS applicants. At this point I think it's probably wait list or rejection.

    Nope. Means you have to turn in immunizations and such before matriculation.

    Edit: I am an Indy student and would argue the smaller campuses would be better with the new curriculum.

    Well now that mandatory attendance is only for small group it's not that big of a deal. Smaller campus = more one-on-one time in small groups and lecture with the prof.

    ^ so to elaborate more I know that in past years getting placed somewhere other than Indy for most people was disappointing but now it's totally fine if not better. There are loads of small group things and in Indy sometimes there is only one facilitator for 140 students as opposed to 1 for ~30 students at other campuses. You can see why this would be an advantage in some situations. Lecture is also good for the smaller campuses since its easier to ask questions with 30 peers rather than 140 :p

    Most people end up watching recordings from other campuses anyway. Usually for each course one campus tends to have the best lecturer. In my opinion, Indy has had it for 1 course out of 5 so far. Fort Wayne has had quite a few good lecturers and so has Bloomington. Don't make a campus decision based off this though, as lecture attendance is not required anymore and you can easily watch Fort Wayne's lectures if you so choose.

    Obviously Indy has many attractions as a city and campus but so do the other places. I wouldnt worry too much about campus placement with this new curriculum. Each campus has their pros and cons and its hard to objectively determine which campus is best. If I didn't have personal ties to Indy I would have chosen somewhere like Fort Wayne or Bloomington just for the small class feel. But this is just my opinion. Long story short, IUSM is great and you'll have loads of resources and opportunities at all campuses. Happy to answer any other questions that I can about IU

    How long do they give you to enter your preferences after being accepted? A few people were just accepted on the 12th, so it's possible they haven't locked in everyone's preferences yet.

    I would hope they're usually out midafternoon Fridays of this weekend, or have been the last 2 years, the previous 2 years assignments were released on or around the 25th... They do say on the website "the end of April" so who knows. =/ I'm obv very anxious to find out!

    Probably not at this point and it's pretty disconcerting. We're meant to make a decision on one school in the next 6 days and there has been no disclosure by IU on where we are to be placed. Extremely frustrated with them right now.

    I decided on my in state school. It's a difference of over $200,000 once everything is said and done, which is pretty significant. Plus it's still a good school and I know I'll be happy there.
