    I got an email with a link for the website and password.
    It’s after you pay your deposit. Have y’all done that?

    wow that's super frustrating that you can't see it until you pay the $1,000. I was hoping that looking over the CHC's would help me make a decision when traffic day comes but I guess not.

    I see, I did not know you had to put the deposit down first. Thanks

    How much time are you allotted to pay the deposit?

    It depends on acceptance date. They follow AACOM’s traffic day guideline. I posted it earlier in the thread

    I guess you can try calling and ask what would be available to you to try avoiding the $1000. Many others are on the same boat.

    Yeah it's just weird because I specifically asked the admissions office this at my interview and they said they would send it out in an email to everyone accepted. They did say you could only rank them after paying the deposit though.

    Does anyone remember how long they said it would take for acceptance calls to go out? If I'm not mistaken they said 3 weeks and today is the 3 week mark for those of us that interviewed on 9/14

    I think they are behind, because people from 8/24 just found out yesterday.

    For anyone wondering about CHC assignments, you need to pay the $1000 deposit FIRST before receiving the email that leads you to all the information. In the email it states that "CHC assignments are made in the order that the first deposits are received." So it seems the deposit payment determines your priority for site locations, which is both a disadvantage and an advantage. It sucks that you have to pay in order to get the info, but at least you can take your time on making a decision once you do.

    They have 12 sites:
    Mesa/Phoenix, AZ
    Ridgeland, SC
    Tuscon, AZ
    Visalia, CA
    Renton, WA
    Mt. Orab, OH
    Chicago, IL
    Flagstaff, AZ
    Portland, OR
    Washington, D.C.
    Wai'anae, HI
    Brooklyn, NY (Surprised to see this one cause I could've sworn from the 17-18 forum that they got rid of this. Don't know if they've brought it back or the link they shared is not updated)

    The people from 8/24 found out yesterday, but the people from 9/7 found out last week?

    It was a mix, guess there were some leftovers from 8/24. My point was I think they are very behind lol.

    I think people were posting what time they were called but not saying that they were called this week. For example, I said I was called at 5pm but I was in the first group of acceptances from a few weeks ago.

    Oh ok I think I get more what you are asking. Auditions are their own animal. For core rotations, the CHCs prefer that you stay within your catchment area but for auditions it is more anything goes. They understand that students will be applying to residencies all over the country and that we will need to travel for auditions and interviews. None of my interviews are in my catchment area. You can ask for guidance regarding where the best options may be to apply for auditions but it is up to you to apply to them.
    Some electives/selectives can also be done outside the catchment area in years 3 and 4 (some sites are more strict than others) but you are responsible to set these up on your own.

    Got an interview invite today. They wanted to do a teleconference interview rather than a campus one. Anyone else in the same boat??

    I received an email that had a link to the CHC information before I paid my deposit. Just letting everyone know you don't have to rush into the deposit.

    I submitted last Friday on October 5. I felt that the Hawaii CHC's mission/vision aligned with my values/interests/passions. They're very cognizant of the the local's cultural background and incorporate it with their patient care. As a POC, that's really important to me. Other reasons being, I'm from SoCal and I love the West coast culture/Pacific Ocean too much. Hawaii is a new scene but still somewhat familiar. And it's Hawaii! My other two top choices were Seattle and the California CHC.

    Looks like there’s at least four new CHCs. Does this mean next years class will be larger? Or 2-4 year cohorts just smaller?

    Pretty much all the students I spoke with during my interview said they were trying to increase the class size next year! I got a rough estimate of 160.
