    I think that might be a good thing? because they definitely seem to go through apps by the date you were complete so they are probably still considering you!

    I’ve been hearing quite a few negative interview experiences this year, such as interviewers interrupting applicants and being overall rude doing interviews. Has anyone interviewed recently and experienced this?

    My interview here was the first one I felt grilled during but he was polite just asked a lot of why questions and some behavioral/ethical questions.

    Just had my interview here this past Wednesday. I did not have any issues with my interviewer interrupting me or being rude during my interview. None of the fellow interviewees I asked mentioned anything bad and said their interviewers were very nice.

    Finished my secondary here in July. Acct was on hold up until a few days ago because I was waiting for an IA letter (academic probation). Sad because I have been trying to get this letter for a while and I really want to go here. :/

    +1, there were a lot of people in my interview group though, so I imagine there is a good amount of different interviewers

    Complete 08/28 it's been five weeks and five days, still early to hear back!
    I love BU and I've graduated from one of their GMS programs, I hope they love me back and see my genuine interest in going back to their school.

    oddly mirrors my experience, no idea if it went well or poorly but the interviewer was a nice just not during the first half of the interview lol. The dean stories were so funny and genuinely felt welcomed here

    My friend interviewed here some weeks ago and the dean herself was her interviewer. She said it was super chill and conversational, so I hope I’m lucky enough to have that same opportunity lol

    Would anyone who interviewed for the MD/PhD here be so kind to PM me their interview experience? Also how many students does BU interview and what is the post-acceptance rate? Thank you kindly!

    Good god, that email and the "this year we have seen an unprecedented number of applications that have been completed early in the cycle" language gave me a heart attack (they sent an email apologizing for not having reviewed apps that were submitted early in the cycle yet)

    I interviewed here yesterday. The sessions were informative and low-key. Everyone I met was really great and honestly would be happy to call any of them classmates. My actual interview was good but not stellar. I am hoping that since it didn't feel bad that it's a good sign. I got asked mostly about my current research and exercising lol. It was very chronological in that I was asked to talk about each of my experiences. The only typical question I got was "why medicine" but other than that it was just a conversation about working out

    I actually agree with this experience. I thought my interviewer was somewhat rude. I don't know what is up with BU's interviewer's this year- but the entire thing left me with a bitter feeling about the school itself.

    For those that have recently gotten an ii, what dates were available? I have mine scheduled in late November but might have to reschedule.

    I wouldn't take it to mean anything negative! My best guess is that it was sent to people who submitted during a certain time frame where they got a lot of apps and were unable to process them as fast as they'd like. I submitted 8/3 and was complete 8/7, if that helps at all

    I was complete around the same time and also didn't receive the delay email. I thought the email was only sent out to folks that were complete all the way back in July but were in silence since then?

    Also, haven't been rejected (yet lol).
