    ~0%.

    Schools don’t interview people they wouldn’t potentially accept. There’s no such thing as a waitlist interview, certainly not here.

    Doubtful. If you read the thread, the poster above who is a current student has repeated a million times that he got his II in March. It's only December. Chill.

    They are booked until March. They interview until early April, so hopefully more applicants will withdraw.

    I dont know why people keep saying "interview for waitlist spots"

    Schools have like 4-5 months worth of interviewees on the waitlist already, why would they want to add more...

    I just saw that they put my application on hold. The date says Hold on 8/21/17 but I've definitely checked several times since that date and this is the first time I've seen it. Complete 7/14.

    I took one of the buses from La Guardia to some random train station (free for the week I was visiting) in the middle of queens (I think?), then took a train from there to a station near Manhattan ($2.50)that was only a few blocks from Grand Central. Took the train from GC to Valhalla ($10 off peak, if i remember correctly). Once I got to Valhalla I got an uber from the train station to my student host's place ($8). Luckily after the interview one of the other interviewee's drove me to the station so I saved money on an uber. On the way back to GC, the train ticket was a few more dollars because it was peak ($14?), and because I was short on time I took a shared van from GC to La Guardia ($18).

    Total: just over $50 :) couldn't have done it without advice from my fellow sdn'ers!

    Maybe I'm calculating things wrong, but looking off of MSAR it looks like 18% IS and 20% OOS were accepted post-II. Does the US news ranking have more accurate info about people that withdrew their acceptance etc.?

    I think you're looking at "matriculated:interviewed" which is a different statistic than "accepted:interviewed", since schools accept more students than they ultimately matriculate

    Me too, completed early September, but heard nothing. At this late, they probably have an R for me, and I probably won't attend here. Still I paid $80 application fee, and wanted to learn how much they love me.

    I am planning on withdrawing from here after receiving an II earlier this week. There doesn't seem to be an option for me to withdraw on the portal like there is on other school's portals. Should I just send an email to mdadmit.nymc.edu?

    Unless things have changed since I interviewed (I'm an M3 at NYMC), they are receptive to pre-II updates via email. During my application cycle, I was complete in August, heard nothing for months (was never put on hold, which makes me wonder if they ever even looked at my application haha), emailed an update in Feb, got II less than 2 weeks later in March, interviewed mid-April, and was accepted 10 days later. There are at least 10 other people in my class who interviewed around the same time as me and were accepted outright.
    I think NYMC is one of those schools that gets a huge number of applicants but a relatively low percentage of accepted students actually come here. (Not saying it's a bad school, just that it's a solid mid-tier.)
    As for the MMI, having been in the role of both interviewee and interviewer, I would just say to read the prompt carefully and think (but don't overthink!) about what it is they are trying to find out about you from the question. Some are to see if you are informed about current issues in healthcare, some are to determine moral character, some are just to see if you have any personality. This isn't the time to impress the interviewer with your credentials (unless it's very relevant to the question); I don't want to hear a humblebrag summary of your entire CV, I just want you to answer the questions in the prompt.

    Do you remember if you sent the update via their portal? I sent an update via email and didnt get any response so I dont know if I should call and see if they got it or if they just do the silent treatment with updates.

    They don’t always acknowledge the updates. If it’s important you can call and confirm it was added to your file.

    MMI interviewers include both faculty and students, as well as members of the community who may or may not be affiliated with the school. In general, what position they hold should not affect your responses.

    I don’t really feel that is the case, but I wasn’t a student before. Plenty of us get great research either here or other places. It’s no Harvard but I think it’s been sufficient for graduates getting excellent residencies.
