Anyone who is OOS w/o ties get an II?
Congrats! Are you OOS?
when were you complete?
Not sure but I don't think they even started reviewing OOS until November
When did you get the call?
About 4:30 PM
Didn’t make an account until recently, so:
I just got an email saying my application was placed on hold.
I'm an OOS student with very heavy ties to South Carolina. I know MUSC doesn't start reviewing OOS until later on, but when do they interview? Thanks.
Anyone have any luck applying with a low MCAT? IS with a 3.95/502. Applied last cycle but didn’t even get an interview
MSTP applicant: interviewed 12/7-12/8
Got an email yesterday saying that most people get accepted in Jan and that I am on the "high hold list."
Just received an II for Feb 15th (IS applicant). What are the chances of being accepted at this stage of the cycle?
Anyone OOS with interviews yet?

Would love to know also!
It looks like I will be going here for sure, so I just want to take a minute to rave about what a great school this is. I have already been in Charleston attending another program (Master's) at MUSC for the last 2 years.
MUSC is the kind of school where if you want to succeed, you can succeed. MUSC loves to give people a chance. At MUSC, the "limiting reagent" in your success is your own ambition and passion for the field. Although MUSC is not on any "Top 25" medical schools lists (which are kind of insane and childish for LCME-accredited programs IMO), this school attracts some amazing doctors and researchers who win hundreds of millions in grants and awards each year. This school understands the importance of growth-- you all may have heard that MUSC just purchased 4 community hospitals in the Florence area which will become MUSC hospitals. This is good because of the training and career opportunities is brings for students who are interested in public health and primary care. MUSC is also converting a nearby vacant JC Penny store in West Ashley into a massive 126,000 square foot surgical outpatient center. This is good for the school because it means more revenue for the hospital and potentially more opportunities for clinical training for those interested in surgery.
If you are interested in research, you will have amazing opportunities in everything from biostatistics to neuroscience. If you get into an MSTP program you will be surrounded by a garden of opportunity. You will almost certainly feel conflict about which lab to work in, because you will find more than one that piques your interest.
I have been living in Charleston for the past 2 years and it is a fu*kin amazing town. You will be proud to bring your friends and family here and show them around. Even if they live on a yacht in Barbados they will have to admit you have a pretty nice place to live. The harbor, bridges, boats, monuments, parks, houses, restaurants, bars, etc will keep you happy whenever you can break away from the university.
If you get in here, you should come. And you should feel really great about it. And you should succeed in medical school and move on to a killer residency here or at another awesome institution.
Should I assume that as an OOS w/ no ties to SC that I will not be getting an interview?
I'm in the same spot. Sadly, I think it's true. I was hoping my stats would get me in the door to getting my app looked at more extensively, but alas....
Got an interview invite for 2/15
Might be late in the second half but still in the game
Congrats! In state or OOS?

Thanks. I was not expecting it, definitely caught me by surprise
IS, long line of SC ancestors (4th great gf got his MD at MUSC back in the 1830s...legacy points)
Thank you for this. I was already 95% sure I was going to go here, but this cinched it. So incredibly lucky to be IS. Everyone there was so incredibly kind and Charleston is a beautiful city at night. Feels good.
Edit: Also...see you there! Can’t wait to meet everyone.
In case anyone feels they had a rough interview, a friend interviewed here a few years back with a decent gpa and an exceptional mcat.
'I see your mcat score is much higher than your GPA predicts, can you explain that because to me it looks like laziness'
Don't know who he made mad that day but dang.
Ouch that's a hard question. All mine were pretty easy and it was just like having a conversation. Good luck in your interview!
Accepted to the MSTP (MD/PhD) program today!
