    We are/were all students at IU so we already had these accounts.

    For those who are asking about their interview dates, post-II:

    It seems to be taking around 4-5 weeks for people to be given their official date after receiving their invitation. That being said, they take a break in December, so add on another couple of weeks to make up for that break just in case. It's stressful and can be inconvenient, but just remember that you have the invitation - the date will come soon.

    Also, to reiterate something I mentioned a ways back, IU is the largest medical school in the country so they have a lot more on their plate than other schools. This is a stressful process but patience is key, especially for future physicians.

    I just talked to admissions and they said the portal should be going live tomorrow.

    They also said not to trust the one.iu.edu grad thing because that could be unrelated.

    Don’t know how the central portal for all IU Campuses would be unrelated since most people apply strictly MD, but okay. If that updated, y’all probably safe to celebrate.

    I interviewed Oct 3 and just saw the One.IU student center update to say that I have been accepted. It didn't say that when I checked around 8:00 this morning. Big, if true ;)

    Accepted. Came home to a massive envelope stuffed in my mailbox.

    LM 74, reapplicant, interviewed 10/10. Was considered IS at up until right before the interview, am currently viewed as OOS.

    I still can't believe it, I'm gonna be a doctor!

    Portal updated this morning. Accepted! Still waiting on the official letter in snail mail.

    My one.iu account was updated yesterday so I think the two portals seem to be related.

    I apologize, should have included this initially. I am OOS but significant ties to Indiana (lived there longer than most here have been alive). Interviewed 10/10 at IUPUI.

    Hey guys! Got a question:
    I had an 11/14 interview at IUSM -- thought it went well (who doesn't lol). Should b hearing back on 12/15. I'm an OOS student who attended Purdue Uni for undergrad. I also have plans to stay in IN because of a sig. other -- something I expressed in the interview. LizzyM score = 69.20.

    Are there any other OOS students who attended an Indiana undergrad school and got an acceptance? Do you have any insight on how they look at our application in comparison to OOS students who didn't come from an IS undergrad program and true IS students? I know this is a state school, so odds are slim... just wanna have an idea of just HOW slim

    Do you think it’s a bad sign if we haven’t heard anything yet? Interviewed 10/3 still under consideration. IS.

    This is one of the most OOS friendly schools in the country based on size; they take A LOT of out of state students (somewhere close to 100). To answer the preferences stuff, I feel that's something they don't tell us. So we probably couldn't answer that.

    I have one pre-req (physics 2), and interviewed on 09/12 and portal still says under consideration.

    Does anyone know if IU sends conditional acceptances? or will they just wait till I complete physics 2 and send them a final grade before they make their final decision?

    Anyone else having trouble logging into the accepted students portal? I don't remember making a passphrase for the username they are providing. I wrote down my password for something with IU but for that password I have the username as my email and to get into the accepted applicant portal the username is already entered for us as the first four letters of our first and last name...

    I'm in the same boat, friend. We'll just have to keep our heads up and hope for good news next month!

    Guessing the people from 10/19 haven’t heard anything since nobody has posted. Guess I’ll have to wait.

    That's correct. I was told that they use it to catch up due to the people who accept, but then get accepted elsewhere and turn IU down. They don't meet, but it seems like they send acceptances to people who are on the bubble.

    Where did you hear that they accept people on the bubble in December? I already interviewed and haven't heard back. Wasn't sure if I should be hoping for news in December or not

    I have a couple friends who go to IU. One of them said that they don't meet but they can still send acceptances. This person is in their 4th year though, so who knows if it's the most accurate information haha. I'd say hope for good news in December but don't necessarily expect it since we don't know for sure.

    For those who have received their letter in the mail (congrats!), was the letter sent to your preferred address or permanent address?

    How long after acceptances come out do people usually hear about rejections/waitlists? I interviewed on 10/10 and my application still says "under consideration".
