    I'm a M2 here, so I don't have experience with their rejection policies.
    But as far as I remember from past years threads, they do send out some rejections as they go, but then the rest at the end.

    I understand that I shouldn’t be guaranteed anything (although an II would be nice) but I’m under the impression my application has not even been reviewed yet, which sort of defeats the purpose of turning it in right away. Even if it is just going to be a flat out rejection, I don’t see the point of RFU not getting back to me while they’re looking at other applicants who may have turned everything in a month later.

    If they send you a rejection now, they can't send you an II later.

    So perhaps you're in the maybe pile, and those folks who were a month later are in the yes pile, so they're getting interviewed first because they had better apps. You can still get an II, it would just come later.

    This isn't a linear process and its not a zero sum game. Your stuff is in, you got your complete email. All you can do now is wait, hope, go about the rest of your life, and proactively continue to improve your app.

    Interviewed today. Not sure if I'll be seeing the A, but it was honestly the most enjoyable interview I've had so far.

    Probably, and im thinking (could be wrong) that with a lot of people withdrawing both pre and post interviewing, those individuals that have interviewed already may be given an acceptance offer sooner than later

    I completed at most of my schools end of August and early september ahaha.
    Accepted at 1 DO school. 2 more II from DOs. 1 MD II.
    I'm so stressed because I really want to attend an MD.
    Sometimes I think about wanting to smack myself for not applying earlier lol.

    Knock it off. You won't figure anything real out this way.
    1- SDN posters are way too small of a sample size to give you meaningful info.
    2- even if there were enough posters to truly representative of the applicant pool, it still wouldn't tell you anything meaningful.
    3- this is a private school. IS vs OOS means nothing to admissions.
    4- quality of the app >>>> timing of the app for determining if/when someone will get an II, and that's not info you're gonna find out here.

    Take a xanax or go to the gym or have a beer. Don't chase meaningless details and create more anxiety for yourself.
