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!

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...

Thanks!

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...

Anyone interview here yet? Is the optional diversity meeting truly optional or does everyone end up going?
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).
