    So sorry. Hopefully there will be lots of movement! Do you mind sharing what day you interviewed?

    I'm sorry. :( On the bright side, you got 4 IIs, so it's very likely that at least one will turn into an acceptance. Hopefully there will be waitlist movement too.

    I think I interviewed the same day as you. Haven't gotten any emails yet...

    I've been following this thread intensely as I also have a decision pending. I've been rooting for you and despite some of the negative consensus on their WL movement at the school, I personally think it's an intelligent way they look through applicants. I'm hoping for positive movement for you and fingers crossed for all of us still waiting on decisions!

    Congrats! Can you tell me when you interviewed? Trying to see where they are at/if they’re giving notifications in order.

    Does anyone know if people who interviewed on 10/19 will find out today? I know we missed the cutoff for the adcoms meeting that took place on the 3rd Monday of October, but I'm wondering if we should find out today too? Or does it take 2 meetings instead of 1 to make a decision, and we won't find out until after 11/19?

    Was the decision the subject header of the email?

    What does it mean if EVMS hasn't emailed us yet? I was interviewed on 10/19, but haven't heard anything, no rejections, waitlist, or anything.

    It's even more confusing since EVMS is usually pretty good about telling people they're rejected or waitlisted, as far as I've heard at least, so I really don't know how to interpret their radio silence...

    Yep, they emailed me this morning. Middle third at that so I'll probably have to scrap this school from the list. I'm not sure what silence means, you can check previous years to see.

    I'm thinking you may be pushed til next adcom meeting. I interviewed 10/3 and just got the acceptance email today, while it seems that much of sdn from my interview date found out about 10/19.

    Weird, so even though most of your cohort found out much earlier, you just found out? And they didn't send an email or anything before then, huh? Sounds like torture.

    Yeah no communication until the acceptance today. So just a warning to all that it may take greater than 1 month to get a decision.

    I know it's frustrating to not hear anything while the rest of your cohort does. I do know that sometimes, if adcoms can't agree on an applicant, they'll put their file inside and revisit them at the next meeting- so this could be one reason why some of you who interviewed awhile back might not have heard yet. Furthermore, if the adcom who interviewed you can't attend a meeting, your app is likely to be pushed to the next one.

    What's the chance of getting an II this year if you had an interview last year and were waitlisted middle tier IS? Complete 08/10 this year and haven't had any communication

    Is a waitlist basically a soft reject here? Is it bad to call and ask where I am on the waitlist?

    Congrats! I'm sure you deserve it! Hey, can I PM you and ask you about your interview and how you prepared. I have a LM close to that, have an interview, and really hope to land it. :)

    Complete in August- still nothing. Is there a consensus on whether or not this is a silent reject?

    No, not at all- in fact, I suggest you do! You’ll have to sift through this thread to find more info about the waitlist, but it’s split into thirds and about 1/3-1/2 of the class ends up coming from the waitlist.

    Cool thanks! I think you may have to open up the ability to pm because it says you only accept message from limited members.

    Really enjoyed my time interviewing here last week. EVMS has a fantastic program, I especially loved the school's emphasis on student wellness. If anyone I interviewed with is reading this, I wish you the very best and hope our paths cross in the future!

  46. Current EVMS M1 here. Student wellness means mandatory student wellness sessions and assignments that detract from student wellness.

    Interesting. A few students I spoke with were happy about their access to the SMH clinicians among other things. Are you unhappy with your decision to attend?
     
  48. No, I’m saying, mandatory “student wellness” is low yield.

    Hello! I'm so sorry if this question has already been asked... Does anyone know if EVMS is receptive to in-area requests?
