rejected friday, int'l Lizzym ~75. Good luck everyone!
Sorry if this is overthinking but could some of you let me know whether you had the "Interview Scheduling" tab available before you got an R or an II? My status still says under review but that tab has been available for the past week or so I think. Clicking it gives a little information about how they schedule but doesn't give me the option to do it. I'm hoping it's a good sign but I don't want to get my hopes up too high. Yes, I know this sounds slightly crazy.
I think that tab is there for everyone; I think I've had it since before I submitted my secondary. A couple other school portals have that too (Pitt comes to mind).
Thanks for the quick reply! Oddly this makes me feel better. Also, congrats on finishing 51 secondaries, wow.
For far along is Boston's cycle? Debating whether or not it's worth it to send in a last minute app.
They interview through January and I believe some in Feb. they don’t conviene to review applications after interview until December, so you’re at no disadvantage if you interview later. I say send it in!
What interview dates were open when you scheduled?
October 24, 29, and 31
II this morning! Complete 8/10. They offered plenty of early October dates (1, 5, 12, 19 and 24)
LM 74, in my sig! It's been a few weeks of silence, so this was a welcome surprise

R just now, OOS, Complete 7/25. Not surprised, but have to say it was a really kind rejection email so there's that! Good luck to everyone!
Does anyone know if BU is receptive to update letters? I've been warned not to send mediocre updates, and mine are borderline meh lol: new job, paper submission to a pretty significant journal as the 3rd author, new rec letter, kind of a new volunteer activity (through a BU department actually).
New things but nothing too significant...
Just got axed
At least their rejection email was kind

Copped the R. Lizzy M 77.5. complete 7/25
I feel like my rejection is coming soon... completed on 07/27, and silence since then.
General trend lately seems to be that interviews come ~1 month after completion, while rejections come ~2 months after.
Guess I'll have to wait a few weeks for this amazing R letter everyone's been raving about.
lmao same. complete 7/30. the end is near.

Darn. Complete 8/1. Bracing for impact
So my secondary has been marked as submitted and everything else is in but I haven't received the official Zap solutions email telling me that my application is complete. Did other folks receive that kind of email?
Yes, I got one 4 days after submitting- I was texted and got an email from MEDADMS that starts "This is to confirm that your application to Boston University School of Medicine is now complete."
Thanks, but just realized I meant to post this in UCSF. God, I'm tired...
Haha, it's been a long week and a long process! For what it's worth, I didn't get a complete email from UCSF either
Hey, I'm interviewing here soon as well! What optional diversity meeting? I don't believe I've recieved anything about this? Is it on the portal?
I received an e-mail about it, pretty much just says there is an optional session at the end where you have the opportunity to meet with the school's Office of Diversity and Inclusion to hear about their climate of, presumably, diversity and inclusion. It emphasized that diversity comes in many different forms and that everyone is invited to attend. BU does seem to truly value diversity in regard to the makeup of their class so I think it would be wise to go, although I doubt it has any bearing on our decisions.
It's from 3-4pm and it's open to all interviewees. I think it talks about it on the BU website, but I found out about it via email. I doubt it would have any effect on admissions decisions, but I would still go (unless you have a flight or something).
Rejected just now, complete 7/27. Was wondering when they'd send me the R after the flood last week haha
Rejected as well. Complete 7/23. Best of luck to the rest!
R as well 7/27 LM - 77.6
Best of luck to those still in the running
