    Does MCG send "complete" emails? My status page on the portal just says "Application submitted" and has said that since July 26th, even though they have my Casper results and my letters, and I've uploaded all the documents they need.
    And congrats to everyone getting interviews! So exciting!!

    They send an email letting you know that your secondary has been received, but that's it. To be honest, I'm not sure if or how that differs from a "complete" email. Could someone shine some light on that for me?

    Nope. I submitted all required documents/materials mid-July. I had to call for clarification on something and they said there is no email when your file is complete.

    I assume they're processing EDP applicants first.

    @Endocytosis0 Secondary received means they received the supplemental. A complete email means they received CASPer, LORs, Supplemental, etc.

    I only got an email confirmation when I submitted my secondary. I didn’t get one saying they had all of my documents or anything like that.

    Super excited to be applying! Was able to submit my secondary last week, so now it's just a waiting game. Good luck to everyone applying and interviewing :)

    I submitted my secondary application 15 days after I received the invitation. It says the deadline is two weeks (14 days) from when the secondary is sent. Did I just ruin my chances? :(:(:(

    Its my understanding that some schools make it more of a strict deadline than others, so you may still be okay. However, schools may view that delay in submitting the secondary as a lack of interest in their program.

    I found this on the secondary website:
    "No invitations for interview will be offered until a completed secondary application, LORs, and valid CASPer and MCAT scores have been received."

    Hope this helps! :)

    You're probably in the first batch! My friends in MCG right now said the school doesn't even know where they'll stage the MMIs yet. Man, I hope I get an II from here soon.

    Congrats!

    I'm thinking he/she is too. They may be sending out II based on stats first with that LM!

    MCG just sent out their first batch of interviews. This year they're having MMIs so anything could happen. Just bring out your thickest Southern accent and you're good!

    My guess is that they are doing it in waves. EDP was first to get IIs, and now it seems like people with fairly high LizzyM scores who applied regular are getting them. Your time will come :)

    Can confirm. From what I heard from past applicants, they generally go with higher LizzyM's first. Patience is key to stay sane during this process. Good luck to those of you with interviews already!

    To the people that got IIs, did y'all go to IS UGs? Technically IS, but went to an OOS UG so just curious...

    Current M1 here. They’re doing MMIs in the rooms where we usually have standardized patients. They had a batch of ED interviews this past week!

    Just a heads up to people waiting to hear back: interviews this year are on Tuesdays and Thursdays!

    Ugh, jelly! MCG is my state school and am dying to hear back from them as well. Wasn't complete until like 8/17 though because I forgot to send in lawful presence documents smh lol
    Do you mind me asking what interview dates you had to choose from?

    It's my state school, too! :)
    They gave me the option of September 20 (followed by PhD interview on the 21st) or September 27 (and PhD on 28th).

    Awesome, well congrats!

    Maybe I'll catch an II before one of those dates and meet you at the interview :) I can't imagine MCG gets that many MD/PhD applicants. Last year it was only 63!

    That would be awesome! PM me if you do and we can arrange to meet there! Best of luck -- they took a while to get back to me after my completion date (7/23), so maybe you'll hear from them in a couple weeks or so.

    Anyone who went on the MMI, would you mind sharing how it went? I'm trying to figure out how to prepare for one, and any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! :):):)

    I did one at UCLA and it was basically like an elevator speech. At UCLA it went like: 1. You read the question posted on the door 2. A bell rings for you to walk in 3. You shake hands (Don't introduce yourself because you have a name tag) 4. you answer question/talk to the person across from you for 6-8minutes. 5. Bell rings and you get up and get out 6. You move to the next station.

    It can be fun but being nervous can ruin you.

    Did anyone else list AP courses for their pre-reqs? I have AP English credits but the system isn't accepting it because I didn't enter a valid letter grade, but AP classes don't award letter grades. How am I supposed to enter AP courses on the secondary?

    For anyone who interviewed this past week: how do we go about sending thank you letters/emails? I don't have the info of all of the interviewers, and I feel like if I sent it to the dean it would just be lost amongst all of the other emails I'm sure she gets.

    Hey I had AP credits for English too. I believe on the secondary I listed them as AP credits, and for the letter grade I wrote "K" b/c that's how it showed up on my undergrad's transcript. I hope this helps!
