    Agreed! And thank you :)
    In case you didn't see my edit though, I might have only been safe with the update bc I was applying MSTP and MD only might be different.

    It was pre-interview actually! I emailed them asking if they accept updates and they said to put them in the body of an email and they’d add it to my file.

    Edit: This was during the 3 month period after submitting the secondary but before I got the “complete” email.

    Thank you all! Didn't realize the answer was so convoluted lol. Been complete for months so I guess I'll just sit tight.

    I don't think it matters if you're complete or not because I sent the updates 2 months after submitting my secondary. (also this is for reg MD)

    Had you already received the email saying your app was complete though?

    I've called ~20 MSTP programs asking if they would accept an update (pre-interview) and every single one said yes. Surely not the same for MD.

    FYI Einstein accepts updates for MSTP applicants.

    No but I'm not sure if that matters or not lol. It doesn't hurt to email them asking if you can send updates if you have something that would strengthen your app though.

    why is that LM is always the determining factor and question when someone says they received an interview. I would still like to trust that the committee members look at the applications holistically. While i do respect and acknowledge the commitment and dedication needed to achieve a high LM, I also have respect for the physician patient relationship and the trust and honor that comes with that role.


    What about clinical/research/community based experience ?

    Agreed. Once you meet the initial screen, interviews start to be based on other parts of your application. As AdCom members on here have said: "high stats are a dime a dozen".

    I know for a fact that my application at two schools was flagged because of my ECs. I submitted in October and received an II within 2 weeks from one school and 6 weeks from the other while high stat applicants are still waiting to hear something and they submitted in June/July/August.

    SDN is obsessed with stats.

    This is extremely true. I do believe there are schools that scout out high stat applicants but I can tell that many are using the holistic approach when reviewing applications.

    There was one school I sent my secondary to and within two days (literally 2) I got an II meanwhile people with higher stats are still waiting. (I have strong ECs)

    I totally agree!!! I got an II within a week at a school that I applied to in October bc of my ECs and personal statement. I messed up on my mcat so my LM isn’t that high but I’ve already gotten accepted to schools where people with way higher stats haven’t heard a thing!!

    Does anyone know how long the interview season is at Einstein (aka how long invites go out until)?

    Med student here who does interview lunches: we interview into mid to late April and send IIs out through March or so. I interviewed in April myself so you still have a solid shot late in the cycle.

    No problem! I'm currently on break so I have lots of free time so I'm more than willing to answer any questions about the school anyone has!

    I see the match list is impressive in terms of the programs, but if you didn’t want to do residency in New York, would that be hindered coming out of einstein? 90% of the 2018 matches were either NY or CA

    Also I have a hunch that this year traffic day and beyond is going to be absolutely wild at Einstein, seeing how much they use their waitlist

    For those that submitted updates post-interview, did you receive a confirmation email to confirm it was received and added to your app file?

    I just called after a few weeks after I submitted and they were able to confirm that way.

    Do people outside the NE or without any ties have a realistic shot here? I’ve heard that they give some preference to people with ties to the NE

    Also would I be set back if I came to AE and did not want to necessarily stay in NY for residency?

    That kind of preference seems unlikely from a private school in NYC. It could be that more NE people apply or attend.

    This may have been asked before, but does anyone know until when they usually give out interviews? in other words, is it a done deal or still hope left?

    Also does this school give pre-II rejects?

    Thanks!
