    Nada. I thought they said we would hear back early in the week but I guess they got busy. Hopefully a call, and not an email, comes through tomorrow though!!!

    I was assuming they probably wouldn’t call tomorrow since I’m sure they are interviewing again. Might have to wait until next week ....

    Did you schedule your interview already? I was pretty disappointed to see that there were no slots left before December :(. Were you able to schedule an earlier date?

    Don't stress to much about your date! I interviewed end of January and more than 75% of my group was accepted

    I submitted my primary on the 7th and haven't received a secondary yet. Should I be concerned?

    Does anyone know what the odds of getting an interview are after receiving the "no interview now but maybe later" email?

    +1. In the same boat and want to know. I think ACOM don't send out rejections yet but rather put people on hold. But no rejection means there's hope!

    I got put on pre-II hold too but I see it as a rejection.. May be I am being too harsh??? there must be something in my application they didn't like, why would they go back and look at it again?

    I submitted my primary a couple weeks ago and did not receive a secondary from them until yesterday when I emailed them asking whether or not I met the criteria for a secondary...they sent me a link to the secondary 10 minutes later.

    3.0 sgpa and 3.2 cgpa. 501 MCAT. Scribe for 2 years with over 4000 clinical hours. ~1000 hours of biomedical research with multiple presentations. Several volunteer hours and a lot of ECs. What do you guys think? I just submitted my secondary last night. My gpa is killing me...

    I got an interview in late July with lower GPAs and similar MCAT but I’m URM and military with a metric **** ton of clinical experience. If anything hurts you I think it will be timing, being complete later in the cycle.

    Has anyone who received an II was previous on hold? Wondering whether they have been offering IIs to those who are on hold.

    Take it for what its worth but we have the same MCAT, my GPA was 3.6, and you have a lot more clinical experience than me, and i have zero clinical research and im URM. I was accepted to ACOM. If anything getting your app in later might hurt you but I still think you have a shot.

    Does anyone know if ACOM does interview feedback if you get waitlisted? I think I remember them saying that but I can't remember who to talk to

    For those who got accepted or are current students.. What is your favorite thing about the school? Why did you end up choosing it overs?

    I’m driving from Birmingham to Dothan around noon today if anyone needs a last minute ride. I’m also down to get dinner if anyone is interested.

    I live in Atlanta and drove down through Columbus and opelika. Drive was smooth not much traffic but I got a flat tire so that was fun. Just give yourself plenty of extra time in case car trouble strikes and make sure your gassed up cause there are long stretches without a station.

    I thought Mr. Willis said that he would give us feedback if we were waitlisted or rejected but I emailed him a week ago and still haven't heard back. I am not sure if I misunderstood him or if he is really busy and just hasn't gotten back to me yet.

    Anyone received an email saying" You have not been selected for an interview at the moment but your application will remain active and we accept updates"? Would this be considered a rejection?

    it is a hold. They will revisit your application over the cycle. I called and asked about it.. he said the first 3 months they take top candidates and then move to less competitive candidates. right now they're offering interviews to 503+ (roughly ). It isn't necessarily a rejection :)

    I was accepted in mid August and my MCAT is below 503. There are a lot of factors that go into interview and acceptance decisions!

    That's helpful, and there's obviously more that they look at. I have a 503 but on hold. I do like that they let you know the general way they do things.
