    If your file is ready, does that mean you meet ALL the requirements for the school?

    No, we fill your evaluations out online. But this is likely true about your faculty interviewer (it was when I interviewed at Jefferson)

    IIRC it's about 8 per interview group. ~8 in the AM and ~8 in the PM. I may be a few off, but it was close to that.

    I didn't drive, but there's a parking lot right in front of the building. Seemed pretty easy, I'm pretty sure there are instructions in an email. Maybe another applicant can chime in and help you a bit.

    There’s a small parking lot inside the school complex. Make sure you drive to the main entrance. You just pay the 10 dollars when you leave. There is a machine that accepts card on the sidewalk of the parking lot.

    The waiting is difficult. I would like to believe we might hear this next week but I’m guessing we will wait until the next decision week on 12/17. :/

    If you're talking about under the interview tab, you don't necessarily need to have taken coursework that fulfills clinical competencies. You could get this elsewhere (volunteering, scribing, etc.). I didn't check any of the boxes here because all of my clinical work was done outside of courses, and I had no issues.

    Hey all! Happy Thanksgiving! I had my interview here yesterday and my faculty interviewer was so warm and amazing. I had a great interview experience so if you're stressed out, just know it'll be okay. I hope you all have a great experience like me. Best of luck to all! :)

    Does anybody remember if the school used in house exams vs NBME exams? I think I remember them saying “step style” questions but I think those are still considered in house

    Very relaxing conversation. I guess it depends on the interviewer. There is a lunch interviewer (3-4 students to 1 M1 student). Faculty and student interviewer rank you on 1-5 scale, which factors into admission decision

    How many of y'all still haven't heard anything pre-II (no hold)? And have they done any rejections here pre-II yet? (I read the last couple pages hopefuly not a duplicate post).

    +4, complete 8/20. People on this thread complete late August have already reported IIs, whatever that means for us mid-August completers. And it looks like they are only doing post-interview R's...for now.

    Interviewing tomorrow and wondering if there is space to store luggage during the day? I have a train an hour after the interview is over and don't know if I'll have time to get back to my hotel and to the train station, too!

    But a ton of people have also received holds. So no H, no R, and no II could still be a good thing? Staying positive :)

    To those who are still waiting to hear back, stay hopeful! Interviewed here yesterday and an admin said they had only gone through about 1/2 the applications so far.

    They also said they may end up sending more IIs than in past years due to the new traffic rules.
