    When submitting pre-req courses, did you all make a separate entry for the lab portion or just checked the box that the lab was included? For instance, Organic Chem I was 2400 and Organic Chem I lab was course CHEM3100 and had a separate grade. Would you advise to put in two different course entries for this?

    My understanding even they don't accept AP, they accept advance chemistry classes to cover for that. so if you chemistry or Biochemistry they could use the advance classes instead.

    I understand ED acceptances went out today - nearly 20. Not sure how many interviewed but I believe there were four days of interviews. Good luck to the regular decision folks!

    Hi friend, we went to the same undergrad :)
    To answer your question, they are separate courses for organic chem, so lab is not included and you should make separate entries.

    I can't speak for them, but I heard directly that the MMI interviews were very straight forward without surprises or gotchas. Everyone in your group gets the same questions. I was a little surprised that many current med students are interviewers.

    @looptheloop just got an II but it says for regular admissions and mentions nothing about Md/PhD. Did your MD/PhD interview specifically mention it in the email?! Really confused but excited!

    Congrats on the II! To answer your question, the title of the email says nothing about MD vs MSTP, but the body of the email does discuss that. The first mention of MSTP reads, "The MD / PhD interview process will take place over two days, with PhD interviews occurring on Fridays, following MD interviews on Thursdays."
    I would suggest checking the portal, but I am pretty sure the portal doesn't say anything specific to MSTP.

    Might be worth emailing them, though. For Pritzker, I got a normal MD II and I emailed them to ask and they said it was a mistake and they meant to send the MSTP one!

    Thanks for replying!

    Yeah, unfortunately I don’t even have that mentioned in my email. It seems exclusive for MD only.
    I will definitely give them a call tomorrow for clarification.

    Also, I read online on the MD/PhD admissions page that they would send additional questionnaires/supplemental applications to qualified applicants as part of the pre-interview evaluation. Did you receive one of these perhaps?

    Thanks!

    Hmm, well that’s actually good news! I didn’t either. Maybe I really did just get the wrong email II template. Also, I feel like they would have told me I’m not eligible for the MD/PhD before automatically assuming me for MD only.
    Here’s to hoping! Still pumped about the II though!

    That's exactly why I ended up emailing Pritzker when I got that email, because I didn't get an outright rejection from MD/PhD when the MD II came. So, I definitely agree that it's worth checking. Whatever the outcome -- still congrats for the II! I changed my date to a later one than the one I was originally offered so maybe we'll fall on the same interview date.

    Just spoke with Dr. Cameron in the MD/PhD program. He was super nice but ultimately said my application was not competitive enough for the dual MD/PhD coming in at M0.
    Good news is that he said they give heavy consideration to internal applicants to the program after G1. So that could be an option!

    Sorry to hear that, but also great news about the internal application for MD/PhD! I think that if you're dead set on a school/location then that might be the way to go.

    Did you continue your official residence in Georgia? Lots of people are in school for 4-5 years OOS and then enroll at MCG. Or were you doing something else besides school for the past several years?

    @stickgirl390 Could you share what your interview was like? The MMI sounds really interesting but I'm not sure how to prepare!

    They just started MMI this year, so I didn’t have that experience. Sorry! I’ve actually never done an MMI before.

    There are plentyof free resources online to look at sample questions. Prepare. Relax. Enjoy the experience.

    My favorite advice: Be yourself, but better!

    It's definitely my first choice too! I would love to stay in state, and I really liked the campus and students I met. It seems like a supportive environment.

    My advice would be to try and research about MMI's and what to expect. The questions weren't too intimidating, but just prepare yourself for the general format. You only have about a minute to read the prompt, and from there I believe 6-8 minutes to discuss the topic.

    Just be yourself as well- relax, be confident, and try to have a positive attitude! You've made it this far, so believe in yourself!

    I wish you the best of luck with your upcoming interviews! :):):):)

    The faculty at MCG are the most supportive group of people I’ve ever met. They REALLY care about us doing well, and not being too stressed out or overwhelmed.
