    I sent in a letter of interest in mid-December, and Dr. Fischer responded to me the same day. I didn’t get an email just now, though? Wonder if they didn’t send me something because they already directly acknowledged my interest, but I also just might not be highly ranked

    They didn't respond to my LOI on 12/24, so you might be on to something!

    I think this is the "highly ranked email" people have talked about including a friend I know at Mayo MN currently. (But apparently some people who received this email got rejected and some who didn't get the email got waitlisted then accepted).

    Did you already send in a letter to them/get a response from them?

    +1 received the highly interested email! Haven’t sent in any updates or letters yet, but definitely will this coming week. Interviewed mid Nov.

    When you say sent in, do you mean e-mailed the admissions inbox or used the admissions portal to upload a PDF?

    Ah, I uploaded mine. Not sure if it matters, but I didn't get a response.

    Did anyone who sent LOI and got a response also got the e-mail from Dr. Fischer?

    For those who responded to Dr. Fischer’s email did you just reply to his initial email?

    To people who got the email, when did you send in your LOIs? Also, did you have an interview with Dr. Fischer?

    Did you receive an email acknowledging your LOI prior to receiving the “we are interested in you” email?

    I feel sorry asking such questions, but seems like that’s the only way I can keep my neuroticism down given the situation that happened last year with these “highly ranked” emails.

    Haha I don’t blame you. But nope I didn’t receive acknowledgment! I can’t imagine people who didn’t receive the email would be out of consideration, so try not to let it get to you too much, I’m sure you’re a fantastic applicant! :)

    I think you have it backwards, brother. Those of us that didn’t get the email are good - the AdCom didn’t require any additional convincing for our packages.

    Regarding responding to Dr. Fischer's email vs. uploading a document: from what I understand, they're equivalent. Every communication from you gets put into your "file", including thank you emails. Your response to the general admissions email address will go into your file just as a document uploaded to the documents tab in the secondary portal will.

    I sent my LOI on December 24. I did interview with Dr. Fischer and had corresponded with him via email after my interview. I'm not sure if any of that matters though!

    Sorry for asking, but it would be great to know: did you say that you are very interested in attending Mayo during your interview or in your correspondence with him?

    I didn't in the interview. In fact, he asked me if I had any reservations about coming there and what they were, so I told him. In my thank you emails after the interview day I did mention that I had a great experience and was really interested in Mayo.

    Okay, thank you! I am in a similar situation as you, but I didn't get an email so I was just wondering

    If there are any current M1 students here, could you, please, shine some light on weather the “highly ranked” email was sent to everyone who was accepted, or people still get accepted without it.

    Asked two M1s and they were both accepted off the waitlist. 1 received it and 1 didn't. Likewise, they knew people who got the email and did not get accepted.

    From last years thread (which is ridiculously long lol) it looks like a lot of people got the highly interested email, which wasn’t a direct indicator of future acceptance, whereas people that later received a “strong fit” email were likely accepted

    Yeah, they had several emails, such as highly ranked and personalized/generic from their interviewers. Looked like many who received them were rejected, which created a huge wave of misunderstanding. I just was not sure wether people who didn’t get any emails received appointments as well.

    We might never find out :( I was so relieved when they said no ranked/highly ranked emails this year but now this recent email has me stressing again

    We can't guarantee that you'll be accepted but we're highly interested // We want to accept people that are interested in us // Let us know if you have questions and what your current thoughts about Mayo are

    I'm wondering if this is just a very nicely phrased "your application has been ranked" email that everyone gets, or if it suggests that we were highly ranked?

    I think this “highly ranked” email is so silly...everyone who got one will most likely send something, so what purpose does it serve? Just make the decision already mayo...
