    Wow! That’s very impressive looking and sounding! This seems like a pretty ideal placement and a big deal for msucom students, right? Or am I just overly excited to start next year ha

    I think it’s a big deal for sure, having a hospital basically on campus. Even though we did already have two within 15mins of the school (EL campus). They haven’t released much info at all yet, but if i were to take an optimistic guess based on the quotes in the article it could be more on the academic side like other “university” hospitals and be a big plus for academics/research/recruiting. As opposed to our current “community based hospital” approach (but these almost all have residencies set up in them and do research so theyre technically academic as well, not sure on the distinct differences about all that anyways).

    Regardless, I think it’s pretty cool. Should be a big plus for MSUCOM come 2021.

    it is a huge win for the school. Not to mention the construction of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams will be complete soon. This will attract top scientists/physicists to the EL area.

    I was literally just thinking how cool it’d be to work there thatd be sweet if they finished a year earlier so we could apply for residency there

    Would they implement residencies in the first year? Yeah, I wish they had started building it earlier, but it's still good news for the school, and definitely a place that I'd love to be at one day.

    Agreed, and im not too sure. The way the article makes it sound like is they’re moving the other lansing McLaren locations to this new hospital, and if that’s true I’d assume they’d bring the McLaren lansing residencies with them. Probably wouldnt happen that quickly if that is true, but either way it’s gonna be great for the school and IMO it could turn MSU into a clinical research powerhouse like the poster above mentioned

    Have not heard anything as well. Complete a/o 8/23. Also out of state (New Jersey), but with Michigan ties. High GPA, mediocre MCAT, but significant volunteering, shadowing and research with first author publications.

    Better to apply and not get an interview at all, than to not apply and wonder forever

    Congrats!

    If I've heard throughout this forum correctly, since there are significantly more spots in EL than the other campuses, that campus generally has spots open the longest -- though I could be wrong, I would assume yes, there are still spots there!

    Can't confirm 100% because I truly don't know, but like goilers said, EL is usually open for most of the cycle. I deposited after the holidays last year and there were still spots in EL

    I got an EL spot just the other day, I suspect I probably wasn't the last one

    I'm not sure if it's the usual trend, but last cycle Macomb was the last campus to fill up.

    It was filled up when I got accepted in March (Macomb was still open), but a spot opened up a couple weeks later. Actually DMC was my top choice and even that opened up for me in the second half of May, but by that point I was fully ready to move to EL. So...there's probably spots right now if I had to guess.

    Even if you don't get your top choice now, if you really want to go somewhere else, you can transfer after the summer semester.

    Nope. I've been complete since 07/04 and still waiting to hear something. I'm not sure if they do silent rejections or not.

    When doing the graduate professional application after acceptance, are we supposed to relist all of our extracurriculars?

    So does anyone think there will be any waitlist movement after this first deposit date (starting on the 15th)/ was there any last year that anyone knows of?

    They interviewed at least until March last cycle. Maybe April, but I think March were the last dates.
