    And you get a sheet of information about your faculty interviewer in your folder as soon as you arrive in the morning!

    Has anyone received interview invites recently? I have experienced silence since being complete on 10/1. I am aware that is late in the cycle, but I'm wondering if everyone else who submitted around that time is also totally in the dark too.

    We’re in the same boat! I was researching last year’s threads and think we may hear Wednesday of this week (lots of info went out last year on Nov. 15th)

    I had one faculty interview that lasted about 1 hour. I don't think anyone had a student interview unless you count the lunch discussions, but the students were all adamant that lunch was not part of the assessment process.

    Got a R a little less than a month ago. Completed early August. Sent a very nice rejection email! FYI one of my friends got an email saying that they are having a crazy influx of apps this year, so everything is taking a long time, and it will probably be more competitive! Good luck everyone

    I got the email about the number of apps a few weeks ago! Nothing else since that, though.

    Mine went to my promotions folder despite the fact I added all the email addresses to my safe sender list. But there are also people above who never got that email and got an II...maybe your II is in process :) Check spam/promotions folders to be safe!

    You got this! I suspect IIs will be going out through the end of this week. From reviewing threads from last year, lots of IIs the Friday after Veterans Day at Boston and other schools as well.

    Went back and looked and one person who didn’t receive the email got axed a couple days, and one who did get it got an II a week later. So now I’m trying to manage my expectations haha.

    But this person above didn't get the e-mail and got an II. I think the e-mail about being behind means nothing.
    If it helps, I have been incessantly checking the BU portal to see if anything changes...maybe they can see that and sent an e-mail to calm me down haha!

    Question: I was told that this school releases acceptances in January and March. What is this news about people being accepted already? I'm very confused...

    Where are you hearing about people being accepted already? The January and March dates seem pretty set in stone

    I'm not sure, didn't ask. However, he told me that he was expecting news on 11/15 and was called 11/16. He was confused when I told him January/March.

    That's weird... I also interviewed on the first day and they explicitly told us January/March and even sent a follow up email detailing the process, also with those dates.

    Is this for a linkage program? EMSSP, MMEDIC? Early decision? I feel like the Jan/March times are legit.. confused

    There has to be some other story to this. They were explicit at the Jan/March dates at my interview, and the fact that he was expecting news on 11/15 tells me this is not a regular MD applicant. Is this a pipeline program? Linkage? Early decision? Did their family donate a building to the school or something?

    Regular MD. IDK what is going on, but I don't think he would lie about it. Maybe he meant another school and got confused...

    I checked with some BUSM adcom/prof’s... they are adamant that nothing comes before Jan. Not saying you’re wrong, just who the heck knows at this point I give up hahah

    When I interviewed in September, I definitely distinctly recall them letting us know that they accept a small number of the class in January, but most of the acceptances will come out in March.

    Yeah, there is definitely a misunderstanding. Everyone I talked to that interviewed there said they were resolute on the January date. They mentioned that the adcom doesn't even meet until December
