    I had the same thing happen to me, and I emailed Amy this morning. She said they had received way more applications than expected, and so had to put a bunch of people on hold. They'll be reviewing the on-hold apps this Friday, so expect a decision late Friday/early Monday!

    When I got the call I was told that I would be getting an email with instructions on making the deposit. However, the email was more of a Congratulations with no instructions. Any idea when/how we place the deposit?

    If deposit instructions do not accompany the official letter of acceptance next week, I plan to contact MUSC admissions with this question.

    OOS- does anyone have an idea how long it takes to hear anything after getting the "we printed your close ties" email?

    Went to undergrad at CofC. Honestly, in the next 2-3 months for options for anything below Spring Street.. but you can still find some stuff a little bit further out closer to the summer. Grad students and the like tend to live a little bit further out anyway. Not sure what its like if you want to live off the peninsula though

    I submitted in early September and got that email a couple days after. Since then I have not heard anything. But if you check your status on the portal it says they won't start review OOS apps until November/December.

    When I got called I don't remember them saying anything about making a deposit so I'm not sure. Would anyone mind updating if they hear more about this?

    As someone who just payed their deposit for ED, basically they will send you an acceptance packet. The packet contains 1. Your acceptance letter itself signed by the dean, 2. Technical standards for being in their college that you have to sign and agree to, and 3. The sheet where you either check off whether you accept the offer or don’t accept the offer. If you accept you pay the deposit of $485. You can include a money order, check, or there’s a space for credit card info. I think you have 2-3 weeks to reply, and If you decide not to go they refund the deposit at a later date

    Also, I believe the deposit covers our graduation dues. This explains why it is so expensive. Congrats to all accepted. If you have any questions, I am a current M1 who is more than happy to answer what I can!

    hey fellow oos applicants, curious if when checking your application status, does it have anything in the slot next to verification? submitted my supplemental in 7/16 and letters are in, just wondering if the verification slot is empty for anyone else/if i need to do anything about it?

    Nothing next to verification row. I was complete 8/21. Above median stats for SC and from the South, so I was hoping for some southern draw. ugh.

    Mine doesn't say anything. Still waiting to hear if I get anything from them... I have no ties to the state.

    Is it insane to send an "in the area" email if I'm coming to SC from OOS for two other interviews in the same week next month? even though it says they don't start interviewing OOS applicants until the spring? Or just suck it up and wait? I haven't recieved an interview invite from MUSC yet, just would love to avoid making multiple trips...

    You can make an account on the MUSC housing website and begin looking, that is what I did. No idea when is a good time to secure one by! I would imagine not until spring when people begin moving out?

    My application doesn't say anything under verification and comments other than "RECOMMENDATIONS RECVD: AMCAS letters have been received".
    Does anyone else's application say anything else?

    Mine said that for the entire time until I sent in my deposit then it marked that as received, so I wouldn’t expect it to change, they communicate everything through email
