    I think medical schools are unable to see if you have multiple acceptances, so they are more cautious about who they accept. There might be more wait-lists this year.

    Not sure, but I’m curious to know.

    If anybody has an interview for after 1/22 please let us know!

    Having trouble finding where to send a Thank-you letter for Interviewing. I logged back in to the portal where I completed the secondary application, but don't see where I can add an update or add a thank you letter. Any help much appreciated!

    Currently at work alongside one of the great professionals that was educated at this fine institution who asked me about my admission status (interviewed and haven't heard back still) and I just about started crying :bang:

    Just adding another data point: I interviewed 9/27 and was accepted 12/21, so ~3 months down the road.

    I wish I could rejoice in not being alone on this but I now feel terrible for the both of us and the many others that are in the same boat. Hoping 2019 will have better news for us!

    My friend I feel you- I have been dreading the third Friday of every month- it's a misery inducing cycle of checking my email, then SDN, then my email again just to see if there is any news, and then alas- nothing lol. How do I break this bad habit?? :help::laugh::laugh:

    Its strange to join a new forum this late on (interviewed Jan 10th); I feel like a new kid at school who joined half-way through the year and is quietly sitting in the corner watching all of the other kids talk about months of stuff that I missed out on.

    Probably not since interviews have not concluded yet. If you interviewed last week, your decision will probably be grouped with the last batch.

    Trust me, I've been waiting for almost 3 months...

    I interviewed this past Tuesday. Dr. Braun said that next Tuesday is the last interview day and that they want to have decisions out to everyone by the first week in February. Fingers crossed everyone!

    That would be a pretty big change from last year looks like they did acceptances well into March and April last year

    That’s actually terrifying news .. would that mean that all of us waiting to hear back are most likely going to be waitlisted / rejected??

    Oof I'm with you there. Seems like they are moving through applicants very quickly. It might be possible more students are waitlisted this year because of the new AAMC traffic rules. Either way I'm tired of being in this limbo haha. I just want to find out sooner rather than later ya know.

    from what i was told at a different school interview, AMCAS has changed it so that schools don't know where all applicants have been accepted to. So before, they could calculate the likelihood of students actually going to their school vs another school (say a state school vs harvard) and if they felt like you'd probably go to harvard bc you got in, they'd be willing to send out more acceptances, but now since they don't know where all people are getting into, they are being careful to not give out too many acceptances in case everyone decides to go to that school and now they have over committed and have a class size of a billion

    I've given up on getting an interview invite here at this point. I'm going to go eat a ton of ice cream and binge-watch The Office. (It seems stupid, but this is the only school close to my fiance and I am not looking forward to 4 years of long distance.) Turns out you never know. 516 MCAT, 3.7 GPA with upward trend (no C's, and 4.0 my last 3 semesters of upper level sciences). I went here for undergrad, from Ga. my whole life, have lots of volunteer experience (clinical and non clinical), and shadowed an alumni from here. (I have an acceptance elsewhere, and an interview at a OOS school with much higher stats so I don't think my LORs are bad). I know it's probably just that they don't like me as an applicant, but I can't help feeling like I made some dumb application error that killed my chances. My secondary was looked over by plenty of people (both in and out of the healthcare field.) Oh well. Congrats to those who were accepted!

    Were any acceptances sent out today that anyone knows of? I thought the third Friday or every month would be decision day but nothing on here yet

    I’m operating under the assumption there will be a sizeable wave next week. Past 2 year threads show big decisions coming from the last Friday of January.

    Been waiting ~2 months. My only II. P L S

    Expect the best, but prepare for the worst. It only takes one acceptance to be an MD...keep the faith! But also be prepared to be a re-applicant.

    So will they be able to see the acceptances after a certain point? What if a person doesn’t have an acceptance?

    Anyone know what the post-interview acceptance rate roughly is here? Or how many people will be accepted vs waitlisted?

    Post II acceptance rate is about 66.67% (68.48 IS, 52.38 OOS) per US World News from 2018.

    Hey guys, looks like revisit day for accepted students is going to be March 9th this year! Mark your calendars :D You should be getting an official invite from MCG but I thought I'd give you the heads up.

    Choose Augusta!! Lol I’m biased because I’m at the augusta campus ;) But seriously, you’ll get plenty of PBL exposure in Augusta if that’s what you’re worried about!

    I'm traditional. I'm starting to accept it at least haha. I'm still very grateful to have an acceptance somewhere, even if it is further from my fiance.

    So how was the trend last year? Should we be expecting to hear something possibly this Friday? I remember at the interview they mentioned probably hearing something either near the end of January or beginning of February.

    They said everyone would be notified accepted/waitlisted/rejected by the first week of February. So I'm not sure if they will release acceptances this Friday or just wait and release all remaining decisions at the same time. Since they have been releasing decisions the third Friday of each month, and they did not last week, I'm leaning towards one final wave of decisions in February. Just my interpretation though!
