Is there anyway to qualify for in-state tuition down the road if accepted?
Unfortunately not. Whatever you originally enroll as is what you’re charged you’re entire time
Thanks for the confirmation, this is what admissions said when I called.
Does anyone know what month they are scheduling interview's into?
II today LM 71 OOS scheduled for late january! excited.
Technically Aug 24th, but I had forgotten a letter from my masters (which i hadn't even started) so i had submitted the secondary back inJuly...
Anyone from 11/14 interview heard back anything?? The waiting time is killing me lol
11/9 ii with nothing yet :/ I bet we hear something in the next couple days
Alternate list today. Interesting, thought this interview went better than any of my others. Oh well
Does the school rank waitlist and when do they start taking people off?
EDIT: They do rank and they remove people from the list at the end of interview season (April). I did well in a masters and have ties at this school and was still placed in the middle 1/3. Kind of bitter about it. Life moves on. Good luck everyone
For those accepted and paid the deposit, when did you receive a separate communication about EVMS' logistics?
A week after the acceptance!
oh i see. It's been almost 2 weeks. Should I contact the admission office and ask?
Do they call you to tell you you're on the waitlist, or only for acceptances?
So they take about six weeks post-interview to inform interviewees on their status?
how do you find out where you are on the waitlist?
You have to call them and ask.
Withdrew from my spot on the waitlist today, so I hope it goes to one of you lovely people! Good luck, go C/O 2023!
Waitlisted. Interviewed 11/28. Good luck to everyone else !
Alternate List Upper 1/3
Do people from Upper 1/3 usually get accepted?
I heard they upper-waitlist some applicants that they think will probably go to other medical schools.
Happened to my friends previously. If they think the applicant will get into UVA or other schools and if they don't seem 100000% sure with EVMS, they usually waitlist them first no matter how qualified they are.
So I am really hoping that they will give me acceptance later.
How do you know what position on the alternate list you're on? The email I got didn't specify.
You have to call them and ask
I am curious as to where you heard this? I did interviews for the 2016-2017 cycle and unless a candidate made it obvious that they were not interested in EVMS/would rather be elsewhere/etc. we would not withhold an acceptance offer on an assumption that they wouldn't attend if given the opportunity to do so. We look at the applicant as a whole (interview+application) and given our system for decisions, we don't choose to place someone on the waitlist simply because we don't think they'll matriculate here.
In terms of waitlisting seemingly over-qualified applicants, it all comes down to finding the right people who'll be a good fit for EVMS--there are no doubt plenty of applicants who are rockstars on paper but when it comes to interview day and getting to meet them in person, it gives us a different perspective of who they are and we may feel that given their strengths+weaknesses, they are better suited for another school. For example, EVMS is big on volunteering and serving underserved populations but if we have an applicant who tells us that she "doesn't want to work with homeless people who live in cardboard boxes" then EVMS is most definitely not the best match for them. (You'd also be surprised at the number of people who have very impressive applications but then end up being incredibly cocky and full of themselves and their achievements so that's another category of seemingly over-qualified applicants who end up on the waitlist).
Tl;dr there's a lot more that goes into a decision than just assuming that someone would more likely matriculate elsewhere, and there's a lot more than being qualified on paper to get into EVMS. Hopefully this was able to shed some light on the topic!
And as for your question re: upper third waitlisting, here's my explanation from earlier in this thread. I know it sucks to be waitlisted but hang in there! You'll end up where you're meant to end up
Anyone still have silence since secondary? It's a lurverly feeling
(OOS, LM 75, completed early september)
Silence since early august here
Silence since Early September here, IS
Silence since early JULY here. I’m just assuming all of the Virginia schools are a silent rejection at this point
Invited to interview today! In-state, LM ~74, complete July 18th. Interview dates in February.
why do Virginia schools have to be like this :/ I'm rooting for you Kiwi, see you on Reddit a lot and I wish you the best <3
Does EVMS do silent rejections?
II just now complete early sept
II just now. LM 67, nontrad. Sent in my primary on the deadline (11/15) and my secondary as soon as they sent it to me (11/19). Couldn't believe I somehow missed this school on my original list and was really kicking myself, assuming I'd blown it. The only dates they had were two in February.
Edit: OOS but regional.
Did you receive the II via email or phone call?
email. but you call to schedule
* obsessively checks email *
When I got mine back in Oct, I didn't realize it was there until four days after it arrived because it arrived in my spam folder. Although it's now later in the application season, I don't think they would send out more II than II times
Hey, I think you'll be fine. If we got the same email, you'll see that they say they're currently scheduling for the listed dates. If those fill up before you call, they'll "schedule your interview for a later date." So to me that sounds like they only open up a few dates at a time; once those are booked, they open up the next batch. And congratulations!!
They'll get you in they want you to come they invited you!! Save your neuroticism for interview day.
No, there won’t be. Literally every bad thing you can imagine is happening. My uncle is the director of admissions and he just told me your offer is rescinded, from every school, ever. Also your house is on fire.
anyone know the date of EVMS' second look day already or when that typically gets announced?
any idea when EVMS returns decisions? Interviewed at the beginning of December, and wondering when I could expect to hear back
When I interviewed back in October, they told me 4 weeks. Ended up taking 1.5. I think it depends when they meet and how many interviewees they had. I would give them another week or two since they have probably been in recess for some part of December.
Does anyone know if Suffolk is safe ? I know that some Norfolk areas are sketchy , but I don’t know anything about Suffolk . Ideas ?
Nice to see that you still got an II despite being late! Congrats
Haha yes, they managed to schedule me
Everywhere in Hampton Roads has the ability, except for Ghent I guess, to be spotty. More's the point though, why would you want to live that far? Even if you're not a go to class person there is a lot of mandatory stuff you have to be at school for, and I'm only talking from a M1 perspective. I wouldn't live in Suffolk for any reason, literally any at all. Driving time is going to add up and time seems like the one thing you never have enough of. And I'm just an M1.
I am sorry , I wasn’t asking for myself . My in-laws are moving there . If I get accepted I am definitely living in Ghent. They asked me to try to get peoples opinions
Does anyone know if a Macbook Air is a good way to go for EVMS? It says they'll likely work but not recommended. Any other suggestions for a good laptop that works at EVMS?
