    Does anyone know how long does it take for them to review the app? I have been on secondary completed since 9/25.

    Just got to final review completed sometime this week (didn't check daily so unsure when). Does anyone know when I'm likely to hear anything?

    I interviewed there and from out of state
    I interviewed there and I am OOS. They said about 25% of their students are OOS so you are fine

    Those that interviewed on 11/9, they told us we’ll be hearing back today correct?

    Did anyone that sent in thank you letters get a confirmation email? I thought they said we should’ve received one.

    Does it say " final review completed" whether they are going to give you an interview or not? Or is it early rejection?

    From my understanding it means that I’m on their Alternate list. Which is their waitlist, they don’t usually take people from the waitlist from my understanding

    502, 3.4UG, 4.0GD. The dean emphasized why their average MCAT is lower than most other schools. They take students (lower stats) that other medical school might otherwise not take. So it is more about your fitting.

    Anyone still sitting on the "final review completed" status and not received an interview yet? Asking for a friend.

    I’m sorry, I wasn’t really monitoring it. Last I ever saw it said “Secondary Application Completed”, but the last time I checked was probably a few weeks ago.

    Is this school receptive to ITA requests? Also, just want to confirm that the review process goes from "preliminary review completed" --> "final review complete"? My status still says preliminary review complete (early october time stamp).

    Does anyone know the post-interview acceptance rate here? I can't find it anywhere. Also for those who have interviewed here, how impressed were you by the school? Anything particularly great about this school?

    Very impressed with their average step scores. Not very impressed with clerkship years, as they don’t have a teaching hospital. Research opportunities seem limited. Also disappointed that you don’t get to do dissections. Overall, seemed like a decent school.
