    II for MD/PhD a couple of hours ago! I submitted my secondary 8/27 and was marked complete moments before I received the invite!

    To be honest, I think that we were below the threshold to get a direct interview invitation after being reviewed by the screener(s). Everyone who's waiting for a while is probably in a queue to be voted on in the committee meetings held every 3 weeks. All we can do is wait~

    Did they tell you why they pushed your interview back? Also, how far back?

    My AMCAS application was sent to schools on August 21st, and I haven't even received a "application received" email from this school yet. Does it usually take this long? Just wondering!

    Anyone who's already interviewed here mind sharing some feedback? Mine is coming up and I'm getting a bit nervous and am not sure what to expect

    if you dont have strong ties to the state/nola i would recommend against it but if you do then i think you might be ok

    well the secondary is pretty low-stakes, its only (ha) $50 and doesnt require any essays. I would say submit it and then send them an in-the-area message around your Tulane interview. you cant get in if you dont apply!

    I can second this. I'm a second year, and I applied pretty late. I was no where close to being complete at this time during my application cycle.

    Anyone know what the admissions committee is up to? I hate not knowing anything or any sort of timeline. I checked MSAR to try and ease my brain but there was no useful info :confused:

    @ people asking about what the admissions committee is up to, Dr. Eubanks said that they're meeting Friday and sending letters out Wednesday next week. Notionally that puts the possibility of A/R/NFA in some mailboxes around the 15th.

    Thank you for the info! I’m assuming they will be considering sending out additional interview invites as well for regular decision folks?

    He didn't mention anything about II's, but he did say a couple times that there is a LOT of time left between now and the end of interview season in April. I don't know if the admissions committee meetings handle II's or what. Basically there's a ton of time, so if your II hasn't arrived yet, don't stress. The interview groups are really small so I bet the II batches are small too.

    Did you interview today? Do you know how many interview sessions have been held so far, since they pushed some of the September dates back?

    Did anyone else get the email today about them not sending out letters until on the 15th? It was pretty funny. Was it just people who have already interviewed?

    Received this and I have also interviewed. I think it's just trying to be sure that everyone's following the traffic rules. Oh well. Dr Eubanks said it's more than likely an NFA at this stage anyway, so a couple days extra won't hurt.

    Know what professionalism means to you.

    Also, some of the interviews are in rooms that have a glass wall to a main hallway. Ask to sit with your back to the glass. Otherwise you will be staring out into a hallway and the cafeteria while everybody walks by and looks at you.

    I think I fixed it! I'd have messaged you, but I think your settings are also set to not allow conversations.
