    what did people's portals look like after they got an II? did the "correspondence concerning the status of your application" message remain until the date of interview?

    I am in the same boat. I have had no movement on my end. I am just hoping that we will hear back within the next month or so. They thought we were good enough to be given a second chance in August so I am trying to hold on to that hope.

    Any current students (or anybody really) know how the WL movement is here? Are they the type of school that likes small frequent updates and showing continued interest often? Or is it better to wait and send larger updates and maybe a LOI?

    yes! That message remained for me until my interview date. After I interviewed, it was changed to the generic post interview message that other users have already posted.

    Woof, if only we knew.

    I've been on hold since early August. Some people here have been on hold since July. Last year, II's trickled out through late March and (I think) even into early April.

    That said, this thread is waaay overdue for an R wave...

    Interview next week. I'm curious about how GW uses 2 closed-file interviews to narrow down their interviewees to 30% whom they will accept. Makes me wonder if they weigh other parts of your application as the same or even heavier than the interview. As someone with low stats, kinda worried about my chances lol.

    Seems like way more people on the WL now compared to past years. Maybe I'm just trying to optimistic, but people did say WL will be used more this year because of the new rules. Hopefully we'll see a ton of movement in a few months!

    They told us that at my interview. And my 2 other interviews said the same thing. This is my top choice out of my interviews so far and hopefully they start with WL movement before May or it’s gonna be a looooong wait (I got WL on 10/15 and interviewed back in August)

    Seems like they did decisions for 11/6, 11/15 and 11/16 this week. Can all the end of November interviewees expect to hear back this following week then?

    What new rules would prompt more WL movement? And I additionally got WL'd around then so curious to know what they said at your interview regarding the movement because I didn't hear anything about it at mine?

    My student interviewer said theres decent movement. And they sent us that email talking about admissions timeline stuff and it said people have to drop to 3 acceptances by April 15th then to 1 on April 30th. So I think WL movement may start mid April for the top couple of people on the WL

    I see, yeah I thought there might be something maybe before then but unfortunately doesn't seem that way. It's a very long wait...

    The interviews were really laid back! Mine were super conversational. They seemed to just want to know you better!

    For those of you who interviewed recently- did you get a reply back when you sent your thank you email?

    Has anyone gotten their GW ID yet? Tryna apply for financial aid, but I can't submit the form because I don't have a GW ID.

    On the FAFSA page there’s an option to look for your school by typing the school name. I looked up George Washington Medicine and the school came up!

    True. In addition to that, you have to fill out extra forms. check out GWU School of Medicine Financial Aid website for more details.
