Based off that email, I am assuming that there will not be movement this week and instead maybe a few days after April 15th? Also, in regards to the update, I would think they are just looking for our continued interest (saying that we would attend if accepted) in this update. Not an actual update about our activities, right?

I just said I’d go lol. I haven’t done anything monumental in a month besides more retrospective chart collection.

On their website it says spring break for 1st years is April 22nd-26th, the week right before the traffic day. Do you think this will have an impact or am I most likely over analyzing things?

Thank you! My msar expired a few months ago and I didn't realize it was coming up soon, so I hadn't thought to check there! (Unless of course this is available with the free version, in which case still thank you!)

When does Einstein get back to you in regards to loans and financial aid after completing the FAFSA? Also, what are the options for financing medical school without assistance from family members? Not quite sure how to pay for living and groceries etc throughout medical school, so if anyone has any insight on this that would be great!

Those costs are accounted for in the financial package, which are basically all government loans, unless given institutional scholarships. Your loans should cover health insurance, travel, living accomodations, etc. When given your package in the fall, the tuition will subtracted and the remaining money gets disbursed to you to use to your discretion.

So by applying through Fafsa gives me access to this?

I can’t find COA anywhere either. Can’t imagine it being that crazy with student housing being so affordable.
On MSAR is says 84,646. I assume that is the closest to the true number of total cost of attendance. It says tuition is 55,360.

Every time somebody posts in this thread i think it’s happening(WL movement) lol
Based off the last email we received, I would think they are going to wait until the 15th to send acceptances off the wait list. I am still curious to know if all the people who received the supposed "HP WL" email got the "still interested?" email. I am going to assume we all did.

Yes.

For everyone still waiting to hear, I called admissions this week and they said they will be interviewing until the very end of April
Einstein has to be one of the latest continuing interviewers in the whole game right? I mean, end of April is crazy. On the one hand I am excited for anyone who dreams of going there and gets a last minute II, but at the same time, like.... don't they enough good candidates to fill a class ten times over by now? Surely they can't enjoy poring over applications until the 11th hour, right?

This really isn't that bad. Par for the course for private schools or OOS residents. I think it is even a few thousand cheaper. But yeah still a **** ton of money lol

Same... so I guess that leaves around 40k to take out in private loans (if parents can't help)? Disappointing
Nah, federal unsubsidized is up to 42k but you can take the rest out in grad plus. Sucks but I'd rather have that than privaye
