    Just hopping on to reiterate that I waited 3+ months to hear back when I was accepted. Just be patient!

    I also just got accepted! It's such a relief to know that I'll be a doctor one day!

    In other notice. What does the email mean by we gotta sign statement of acceptance and deposit $100. That doesn't mean I am obliged to go to MCG right? It just means I accept the acceptance?

    Yep. You aren't committed to attend by signing, just reserving your seat.

    Congrats, you guys!

    Also accepted at MCG today! I'm also sitting on an acceptance from Morehouse. I'm torn between the two.

    Does anybody know when campus assignments start going out?

    I was accepted to MCG and Morehouse last year as well. Its definitely a tough choice. Ultimately chose MCG and I couldn’t be happier. PM me if you have questions!

    Last year the campus assignments came in waves, but most didn’t come out until the spring.

    Anybody received an interview who was complete in October? Was wondering if I may have been “passed over”.

    I never received a complete email but I know they didn't receive one of my transcripts until mid November. Received II 12/5.

    Does anyone know for sure if you submitted your primary and secondary applications in July and August and still haven’t heard about an interview- does this mean that they have passed you over? I.e. do they send rejections at all or is the silence kins of the answer?

    I sent my secondary in around mid August and just got an interview invite this week! So I wouldn't say they have passed you over if you haven't heard back yet.

    If I was complete in early September and haven't received an II yet, should I give up hope? I really disappointed as MCG is the only school close to my fiance. I attended undergrad at Augusta University and have a LM of 72 (mcat 516). I thought my ECs were good, but maybe not. I have had an interview at Mercer and have an interview at West Michigan coming up so I don't think I have any red flags. I just really felt like I was a good candidate for MCG. I'm so tempted to send an LOI even though I know it likely won't do anything.

    They said interviews were only through January this year so I'm freaking out a tad.

    Campus preference email states “After December 1, 2018 the only permitted updates are thank-you notes and unofficial grade reports.”

    I wanted to send an update because I received a promotion at my clinical job and new volunteering experiences. I wanted to incorporate in the same letter my intent to matriculate to MCG (so an Update & LOI in the same letter). Would it be better to send a letter of intent with no update then or just wait it out? I interviewed in October.

    I have heard advice on the forums that a small update with your LOI is not only appropriate but also gives it substance. While MCG specifically restricts updates, I saw this context specifying updates specifically. I would go ahead with including the update!

    Congrats on your acceptance! Can you please pm me? I have some questions about the LOI you wrote if you don’t mind. I can’t pm you directly.

    Hey, I recently emailed a LOI and update this past week. MCG admissions replied and let me know they added it to my file.

    From the 2017 MCG Fact Sheet: "MCG students’ first-time taker pass rates and mean scores for Step 1 and Step 2 of the USMLE are consistently at or above the national average." Not incredibly specific but still a good sign.

    Does anyone know approximately how many interviews they are conducting this cycle? I know MSAR says last year was 495, but I am wondering if the change to MMI has affected this number.

    Wondering if I should have sent a thank you note after my interview? Anyone have any ideas? Also, about these LOI that people are sending, can someone just break down what exactly is going into those and where they are being sent? I'm extremely disappointed that I did not hear back from MCG yet and would really love to attend this school.

    I sent a thank you note after interviewing, but it has not had any major effect haha.

    Basically with a letter of intent, you are stating that if you matriculated, you would only attend this school. You are writing about why this school is your top choice. I tried to keep mine short and sweet, but the general outline I wrote was something like this
    • thanks for letting me interview, had a fabulous time etc
    • why this school is a top choice; what really stood out during my interview
    • what I have been doing since interview
    • what I could contribute as a student
    • just a quick summary/ concluding statement
    I emailed it to admissions. Hope this helps!

    question for people who interviewed.

    How did you guys send in thank you letters if there are multiple people interviewing you. how do you remember the names of all the people who interviewed you? Some of them are students so i'm guessing they wouldn't have business cards haha.

    Since it’s an MMI, I just sent a thank you to the admissions committee. Uploaded it into the portal.

    Do you guys think at this point if we interviewed in January or later that we are just competing for the waitlist considering that they have a rolling admissions? Or do you guys think there's still spots to get?

    I think there are definitely still spots to get. Schools have been conservative with acceptances this year because of the new traffic rules, even for those that do rolling admissions. I would go if you're seriously interested in MCG.
