    Thoughts on attending accepted students day? I’d like to get more information than what we have now, but not sure how helpful it would really be.

    Any current students experiences on their accepted students day would be appreciated as well.

    I have my interview on Thursday and am also wondering what the plan is. Probably going to call the admissions office first thing tomorrow in case my interview is cancelled.

    Funny that it is now March 21st and my application has still not been reviewed. No hold, no interview since early July.

    II received 2/12. Interview was originally scheduled for 3/21, but due to the storm it was delayed to 3/22. On 3/22, it was delayed to 3/23
     
  13. Has anybody who interviewed Jan. 29th or after heard back yet?

    Just withdrew acceptance here - hope it goes to someone here!

    Side note: after going on the portal to withdraw the application, anyone know what the process is for refunding the deposit?

    Email admissions and type an official withdrawal asking for your deposit back give a.m. as number and your address . Ask for confirmation that your email was received

    What is this new Drexel curriculum? Are we going to have textbook readings assigned? Lectures to watch? Will I at least get a good 'ol traditional syllabus?

    I am wondering the same thing.

    Their website Q&A says:
    "Application updates are accepted only from students who have been invited for an interview and for those who have been interviewed and wait-listed. We will accept updated transcripts, new letters of recommendation, updates on activities and/or letters of interest."

    Doesn't say anything about us deferred folks. I would like to play by their rules.

    I sent an update letter after my interview (1/17) talking about a new job I'm working at now and some grades from my last semester. I ended up getting deferred (3/13) and I'm still waiting to see what happens next. Not sure if the update letter was related to the deferral. I'm not the strongest applicant so maybe it did!
     
  37. Is it in bad taste to call the school and ask about my app? I interviewed 1/29 and have not heard anything.

    When do they usually release decisions? I know they said closer to 8 weeks for me so maybe yours will be this week? I think its probably best to wait until the end of the week and see if they send anything. If not then you could be like "hey you said up to 8 weeks and its been longer. Any update on when we should hear something?"

    Rejected Post II. Very surprising because I thought the interview went great, and thought I got along well with my student. Oh wells, would most likely not have attended because I felt the class size was way too big.

    Unfortunately this is how applying to med school works...some schools will want you (timing of when this happens is also up to their jurisdiction) and other schools will not.

    On my interview day the director said that if you don't hear anything past 8 weeks it's reasonable to give them a call about your status.

    Awesome! Did your package include any scholarships? Any other accepted students have any scholarships in their package?

    Sorry to hear that! Hopefully you have another acceptance! How long did it take for you to hear back?
