    In past years, they've done calls going out on first Thursday of January then formal emails going out on that Friday. So I guess we'll see.

    I guess they switched things up this year. Since the portal says mid january we might not hear back until next week

    From what I've seen, the last couple of years the portal has also said mid-January and yet people heard back end of the first week. Crossing fingers that everyone gets good news today (or next week-- as long as it's good news!)

    Okay, I nominate someone else to anonymously call and ask when decisions will be released.

    Delegation and leadership are desirable qualities in future doctors

    As cheesy and lame as this may sound, just be yourself.

    My interview was very casual and conversational. It wasn't uncomfortable in any way. Just sitting in my interviewer's office and talking candidly about who I am and why I want to do this.

    My interviewer and I had an awesome chat about the state of healthcare in America and in other nations (because of shadowing experience I had abroad in Hungary), our families, when she realized she wanted to be a doctor, and what we loved about Boston to make us stick around (I went to BU for undergrad), amongst other things.

    We ended up going over the hour and didn't even realize until it was 20 minutes past and I ended up being late to the regrouping afterwards

    So just be relaxed and honest and let them see who you are.

    Good luck!!!!

    Wow, congrats! So it begins. Did your portal change yet, by any chance? I figure based on prior years it may take a while and calls/emails come first.

    Does anyone know if by "some acceptances come out in January, the rest in March" they mean that there is only one day of acceptances in each month or do acceptances trickle out throughout the two months?

    It means decisions come out in two waves. Last year the January decisions were spread out over two consecutive days

    Didn't get interview yet, completed September. No rejection today either. I guess that is a good thing? Do they still send out invites for interviews?

    Anyone able to access the financial aid tab on the portal? Haven't gotten any call or email yet but I don't think I was able to access it before.

    I think I was able to access this 2 weeks ago when I logged onto portal, so I don't think that's a measure. Haven't received news back either way.
