    Interviewing here sometime soon- I feel pretty out of place. This school is my number one school, but I feel like its a hard sell for someone to see me matching their mission as a white, oos, non spanish speaking guy coming from middle class parents. I guess just demographically I feel pretty removed from who I perceive them looking for in an applicant. Looking for some feedback on my "why inland empire" type of question

    the inland empire is a place that I know well from years of outdoor activities such as rock climbing and mountain biking. though I never lived here, I visited frequently while living in San Diego. From a medical perspective I am interested in primary care, specifically preventative medicine. I also have interest in addiction medicine. Having had extensive experience working with homeless children, and hitting some times of desperate financial strain myself I think that I am understanding to the situation that many people are facing in the inland empire (unhealthy foods for low costs, stress of no medical coverage, stress of not being able to provide for yourself).

    what do you think?

    The information they gave out on interview day said acceptances will be made on a rolling basis starting in November.

    This is only their second cycle so there would only be preliminary data if any at all

    When I was on campus I thought someone may have said they had 4,000 applicants last year, but keep in mind they weren't accredited until late in the cycle.

    Submitted Sept 4th and haven't heard a thing from them other than the "secondary received" email. Although I am OOS, I'm sort of surprised since according to their website, only about 20% of their students are from the IE to begin with.

    Does anyone know how many more interview slots they have?

    Not in the slightest, I’m curious what the group activity is going to be and how the resilience test is though

    Theoretically there'll be a lot as people get into more established schools and withdraw! But I'm not that hopeful. Pretty sure I'll have to reapply at this rate

    When I saw that my links expired, I called the school and they resent them as a pdf.

    Just got an email from Admissions "Your application is still under consideration". I'm taking this as they haven't made a decision (acceptance, waitlist, denied) just yet. Interviewed 10/25

    I got the same email as well. I wonder if it means “Hold”. It does if they are sending out acceptances the same time.

    Did they actually say “waitlisted” in the email they sent you? I got an “still under review” email. I’m trying to find out what it actually means.

    does the "under consideration" email = waitlist or is that an entirely different email?

    I think it means they are still working on applications and no acceptance decisions have been released yet.

    Mine said “Wailist” not under review. If yours said under review that’s a good sign.

    It seems they stopped giving II's a while ago--am I out of luck? I figure a newer med school is probably my best shot of getting in somewhere...

    Also received a rejection email despite having an interview in January. I e-mailed admissions and received a reply back that it was indeed an error.

    Submitted about the same time, even from the IE, and I'm still waiting in silence. Thought for sure I would have heard something from them by now as they're my best shot...

    I got the same thing... this feels like getting rejected to prom after you show up at her doorstep after buying the corsage.

    Yay my dreams at CA University are still alive!

    "Please disregard the Application Status email you received yesterday. We had a glitch in our system and unfortunately that email was sent out to some of our applicants by mistake.
    Your application is still being considered for review from our admissions committee.
    Thank you and if you have any further questions, please reach out."

    Just as a PSA to all from a current student - our IT can be kind of glitchy... still working out the kinks. If something seems off to you, please do call the school and inquire because it is entirely possible that whatever it was is a mistake!

    Good luck all :)
