Got the R today! Completed 07/27. LizzyM 69-70, URM, OOS. Not surprised for some reason...
R, LM 74, complete 7/31
Woke up to my very first II! 3.67/521 complete 8/21. Feel so relieved knowing my app is not somehow toxic.
Congrats! I wonder if they are reviewing high MCATs first...
complete 8/1 and still crickets (i guess it could be worse though..)
Current M1 here. Didn't go to the diversity session ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
+1, I’m going to hopefully get some free food and info
I got an interview with a 514 and I was completed in July 10th and my friend with a 527 got rejected so anything goes :L
Congrats, when did you get II?
I got it on Aug 14th!
II just now! LM ~73 (very unbalanced), complete at BUSM ~07/18
Has anyone interviewed here yet? I have mine coming in the coming weeks and was hoping to get an idea/sense of the day.
Dean is dope, really energetic and funny
R just now. Complete 8/6/18. Good luck to everyone else!
R. Complete 8/1
Hit with the R, complete 8/7
Just got the R. Stats in signature.
Got the axe as well. Kinda saw it coming. Complete on 8/1.
I am sorry to hear that :/ Was it today?
Has anyone complete mid-late July not heard anything back yet? Thanks!
Complete 7/19 and have not heard anything back yet... don't know what to expect...
Similar timing here, good to know others are still waiting!
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 was also complete 7/19 and haven't heard anything.
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.
they seem to be roughly 2 months behind so i think you’ll probably hear by the end of the month

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!
II this morning! completed 8/27 WARS ~80

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)
Same, I was like well the time has come....
I also got the "we are behind" email. I read frantically.
oh man, do you think it's a bad sign if we didn't get this email?
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
R just now, complete 8/8...will say it was the most polite rejection email yet lol
Same here. Complete 8/14, did not receive the email last week apologizing for delay so knew it was coming. Good luck to everyone else!
R, complete 8/8 LM 77
sorry to hear! good luck with the rest of your interviews
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).
R, complete 8/6 LM 73
