    For what it’s worth, I was complete for both on 7/27 (MN/FL first choice and non 2+2 for AZ). II for MN/FL on 9/21 and placed on hold for AZ on 10/2, so not sure if it really makes any difference

    Their interview season ends in December. They are non-rolling and said they would release decisions in February IIRC

    @ current students: when are we supposed to email in our letters of interest/intent? i sent in thank you letters to my interviewers ~24hrs post interview and basically got left on read (generic "same" from one and no response from the other!!!). the dean of admissions seemed to be super into the idea of "maintaining communication" up until final decisions are made but i have no substantial updates as of now and would rather not send a "u up?" kind of email.

    Same lol. I loved the school and my interview group was super cool! I'm planning on sending a letter of interest after attending my other interview. I think they interview a lot of people who get accepted at other top schools so I think just sending a letter and expressing your interest is fine. I don't think you need a substantial update to your application to reach out.

    Received an email and thought I finally received the R.... but apparently I'm now placed on hold for MD. :laugh: I was complete in mid-July. Not sure what this means, especially since Mayo interviews applicants through mid-December.... Very confused and would appreciate any insight on this

    Did anyone who interviewed here get the vibe that they wanted letters of interest/intent? I remember the Dean heavily implying they wanted communication but was wondering if/when people would send letters if they didn’t have a big update.

    I got the impression that they wanted to know if you had a particularly pleasant dream about Mayo. I would say they almost set an expectation that if you want to attend, you should send them a letter.

    Did they say anything about when to send letters when you were there? I thought letters of intent were typically sent once you were waitlisted.

    I interviewed at the AZ campus (still hoping for some love here) but I imagine it’s the same. From what it sounded like letters of intent and interest would play a relatively significant role in helping them select who they would accept. I’m planning on sending mine in on a few weeks.

    The atmosphere is very warm, mostly because the head of admissions, Dr. Fischer, is a very good, almost Mr. Rogers-like communicator. The people in your interview group will all be, in my experience, really interesting but also extremely kind. It was a very, very cool time for me personally. After the meeting, the interviewees break into groups, where one wanders around campus and the others interview. Then you go have lunch with current students. Honestly, it was a very overwhelming but also calming experience for me. I'm really glad it was my first interview, it gave me good control of my nerves for the subsequent ones.

    I recall Dr. Fischer and/or Teresa (the coordinator) mentioning that they expected to receive one, any time after the interview--it was said in a way where I assumed it was, in fact, mandatory.
