    How was the interview? Were the MMIs any more stressful than other schools?

    Just interviewed and was surprised that there were 48 people total interviewing today for the med school program (which seemed like a ton to me). MMIs were very relaxed. Students were nice and friendly and one even said that their classmates was their fave part of the program, which was cool, but overall they didn't seem too enthusiastic? This might have just been my tour group and student panelists though. The building/facilities and research opportunities seemed impressive and the assistant dean gave a really sweet speech.

    That's really good to hear actually! Thanks for adding that. Another thing I'll add is that the current class is going through a new curriculum (systems based). They said that there were pros and cons to being the first class going through it, but something that really impressed me was how receptive faculty was in changing the curriculum based on students' feedback.

    Also, they said to expect hearing back post-interview in around 6 weeks. I would have just edited my previous comment to add these but you responded so quickly lol :)

    II this morning. I was complete way back in July and sort of forgot I even submitted an app because they have no portal and have been silent since the complete email. I won't be attending the interview but looks like they have dates open for the majority of January till the end of February

    Correct. They only accept updates that involve an institutional action, felony, misdemeanor, or military discharge.
