    Holiday Inn Express and Suites was good and had a free shuttle you could reserve to pick you up from airport and also to go to Stritch in the morning

    Agree with @manifestqueen. The shuttle was really convenient (not to mention saves you a lot of money)

    I stayed with a student host. You save money and also get an inside scoop about the school. That being said, it's not the comfiest sleeping arrangement (couch?). I stayed at the holiday inn express during second look weekend, i think it cost $90 a night, but they also have free shuttle to/from airport and loyola.

    for those who have already interviewed with loyola, what was the adcom trying to learn more about from you? I feel like the secondary for this school was pretty thorough to find our fit for their school that I'm not sure what more they would like to know more about me except to meet and talk with me in person lol am i overthinking this? LOL

    No you’re not overthinking, that’s a pretty good question... Unless we’re both overthinking

    It really was just an opportunity to get to know you. My interview focused a lot on my passions outside of medicine and opportunities that interested me at Loyola.

    If you go into your portal, there should be a box that says "Something to Update."

    I had the same issue. I called the admissions office, and they said that it's probably because at least one of your interviewers has not submitted their evaluation to your file. Once they do that, your file will officially be "complete", and you'll be able to submit an update.

    So I actually already sent in my update to the email of the admissions... Do you think that's ok?

    I would wait until your portal is ready and then upload the same update to there. Your email might get lost in the hundreds of emails they get to the general admissions email. If you upload in the portal, then it's guaranteed to be in your file when the committee meets.

    I got the call before checking my portal. Right after the call, I looked at my portal and saw the acceptance.

    My interview experience was great, but I can't speak for everyone. Personally, the faculty interviewer asked me about almost everything in my app. We even talked about family and hobbies. Also generic interview questions. So I guess just be prepared for anything, especially with the school's mission in mind.

    Also better to overthink than underthink, I always say! (but no you're not haha)

    Where does it say that? I interviewed in November as well but all I see is a space to upload documents.

    Has anyone with a pre-interview continued consideration/re-review received an interview?

    Yes, but there is also a similar status pre-interview.

    "Your file has been initially reviewed by the Committee on Admissions. Your file will be held for further review later in the cycle. The review process is continuous from now until the conclusion of our interview season in February. If you wish to update your file, please do so within your portal. Thank you for your interest in Loyola University Chicago-Stritch School of Medicine."

    I've had this status since October.

    Complete since mid aug. Older threads show they historically take a long time.

    My application was complete 8/14 and I still haven't heard a thing... is it worth sending an update pre II?

    II just now, complete mid/late-August. Wasn't confident I would get one because I submitted my secondary after 4 weeks! Psyched to see this school.

    They said that their last interviews are in February. After this, they start reviewing all the applicants and re-reviewing for the rest of the cycle

    I'm not sure what you mean by they start reviewing and re-reviewing? Isn't that what they're doing right now

    Probably after the holidays, unless you’re super lucky. I doubt that adcom will meet twice this month like usual, but that’s just my assumption.

    Two interviews with each being about 30 minutes? Looking at past threads seems like they asked a lot of ethical questions...was this the case for most students that interviewed there or was it generally application oriented style questions. Most people are saying it's a very relaxed interview, I am trying to calm my nerves...but i think it's because I'm so excited.
