    How are we supposed to refer to this school now? Do we just call it Hackensack? SHU?

    Does anyone who interviewed have an idea of the number of shu graduates that interviewed maybe during their day. I'm really curious if they're going to fill those 13-14 spots

    From a previous post, someone mentioned that the shu grad quota doesn't apply this year if that's what you mean

    I am so sorry!!! I hope the weather improves soon!! would call them and send an email immediately! What part of the country are you located in? Would driving be a possibility? Could you ask the airline to get you on a red eye flight/early morning flight/flight from a nearby airport?

    The bright side is that the interview starts at 1030. Try as best possible to get a red eye flight or early morning. If flying into JFK or Newark, you can get to the school in 30 min .

    Also the interviews start around midday. So call ahead of time and possibly you can show for the interview at least.

    Update flying into LaGuardia, 10;08am. Will try to reschedule for Thursday if possible. Otherwise I'm coming in hot. :flame:

    Best way to get to Newark from there? Train, bus? Taxi?

    Best part was that it wasn't the last flight of the evening. The last flight took off and left as scheduled. :p

    So what’s the concensus on if we do not hear back the Friday following our interview?? Like for someone (me lol) who interviews 5/1 and didn’t hear anything... what’s the deal with that person?

    I heard back 8 days exactly! Reading through posts by others if they interviewed on Tuesday they got in the following Wednesday, if they interviewed on Thursday they got in the next Friday. This is just my general observation, totally might not be the case!
    If you didn’t hear back within this time frame, I would assume that they just put your application on hold, and will get back to you after they finish interviewing everyone. Don’t give up hope yet, the class isn’t full yet :)

    A recent "insider" said that about 45 had been admitted. I'm guessing they are close to 50 now.

    So there’s around 10 spots left?! That’s also hoping that the spots for the seton grads were filled too otherwise it’ll be even less. I wonder if everyone else who’s still interviewing is basically just interviewing for a WL spot or is just going to be put on hold

    1. Seton Hall quota doesn't apply this year. Probably not next year either, as they're focused on putting together the best initial few classes first.
    2. 50 acceptances probably means like 30-35 commits at best, even assuming the higher-than-average yield that some posters have proposed due to it being late in the cycle. Some interviewees I know of are so exceptional that I assume they're clearly hunting for scholarships, and if the financial package isn't strong they're not going to go. Then, some commits will withdraw if/when they get into a more preferable school WL.
    3. I don't know how trustworthy the thirdhand account of an anonymous poster on SDN is, even if he/she is telling the truth as far as they are aware. Facts get lost in translation.

    Source: interviewed recently.

    Did anybody else get an email saying t"You have not submitted an application for this upcoming term"? I can see them in my AMCAS and got a confirmation email over a month ago about my app being complete. I hope they didnt lose it :lame:

    1)What quota are you referring to? The shu grad one?

    2) this makes me feel better. I’m guessing they’ll have to give out at least 1.5-2x more offers

    A faculty member from the SOM called accepted students to welcome them!
    They mentioned that 55 offers were given, but ~35 students confirmed they will be attending for sure. There will be movement for those 20 or so remaining spots. So if you interviewed or are waiting to interview, there are still seats that remain! Best of luck :love:

    That email came from the SHU graduate office, right? I'm pretty sure it's Seton Hall sending something because you used their FAFSA code, not the med school. I wouldn't worry. I was accepted last week and got the email this morning too.

    Your app was not trash!! Who gets an interview is super random and there a ton of factors at play. Plus, 2,000 people applied for ~150 interviews. That’s less than a 10% interview rate.

    I tried contacting the admissions multiple times (left a message), during different weeks, but they never got back to me! Are they like this to me or is it that they are to busy to return calls?

    Yes- that make senses- they were at 45 when I last wrote in - I guess then it was 45 acceptances - makes sense that it’s now 55. I guess I’m not getting a II this late in the game. If you are correct and they gave 55 offers, does that mean that 20 declined?

    They are too busy to accept phone calls and answer emails other than from those that got accepted. It’s not personal. They want things wrapped up in the next few weeks which is why they are not interviewing in June at the moment.

    Just to clarify. My suspicion is that when they say "confirmed", they mean that 35 admitted students sent in their deposits.

    I wonder what the likelihood of any of them dropping is? With waitlist movement pretty slow this cycle and projected to pick up in the upcoming weeks I feel like they’re going to have to overaccept unless they’re gonna start a waitlist. But then again, I don’t think that deposit is refundable so who knows

    By comparing movement this year to previous years. Many think the adcom meeting that happened during the week of traffic day is what’s causing backlog along with the fact that people are still holding onto multiple acceptances at this time from WLs.

    General trends over the years show that the majority of WL movement was in the month of may with a lot in the first few weeks. With adcoms supposedly being a week or so behind, it may ‘pick’ up later in the month. The next biggest movement is in the start of June but that’s may be pushed back too
