    Submitted my secondary yesterday and the email confirmation states: "To verify that your form data has been sent, received, and confirmed, click on the listing for the institution under "Submitted forms" in your Personal Activity Page". However, I can't see if my letters have been submitted or a complete indication. Does anyone know how to navigate this page to see their status?

    You could email them. They were responsive when I had secondary questions. Looking through my emails from them I never got a true “complete” email but I went under review last month (so I’m assuming that everything did get transmitted).

    Does anyone know when acceptances start rolling in? Or the next wave of interviews?

    For those who got an II before submitting secondary, did you end up completing the secondary before attending the interview? In the same situation

    So I have interviewed but completed the secondary before I got II. This is my opinion so throw it in the trash if you want. I would complete it. Not doing so would look bad imo. Also, the "why meharry?" And resilience essays give you an opportunity to make your case to the whole committee. Otherwise, you're banking on your primary app and your interviewer to make your case for you. Use those essays and the video to demonstrate to the committee members you won't meet that this is where you want to be. Again jmo.

    I'm starting to feel like if I didn't get an interview with the primary, it sure ain't coming with the secondary...."humps shoulders"

    Congratulations on your interview! When did you submit your primary application and secondary application? When did you receive your email for the interview invite? Also do they email you when you receive your Interview Invite or do you check the portal ?

    Oh, great. Thanks! That seems different than previous years... I thought they sent out on a rolling admission thing. I wonder if people will hear rejections before then...

    Any other OOS still waiting on II? Anyone know how long the interview season is for this school? Seems like they began sending out II later than most schools, hoping that means longer interview period also...

    Hey, just to be clear, you got an interview with a 490? if that is correct, did they ask you to explain this in your interview?

    Either you know someone on admissions or this is a troll. Theres no way a 490 gets an interview, especially this early in the cycle. Their minimum is a 495...

    I misunderstood the post. I thought she was asking is there anyone who received a secondary with stats below 500! Apologies for sending anyone into a frenzy.

    I don't wanna be a downer because my MCAT is also a struggle but probably not :/ most schools (DO) have minimums of 490 and it can even be higher for some at 493 or 497. There can also be a restriction based on the percentile also. Getting into a school with <500 definitely isn't impossible, but 490 is a bit of a stretch

    Oh no you're not being a downer. I just wanted to know because test taking really is not my strong point so its is not a good reflection of what I am capable of doing. I just wanted to know was anyone here that got an interview, or can provide some information . Also what was your score if you do not mind me asking

    I don't know why most people think DO schools accept so low. I've checked the stats, called and talked to admissions at several schools the minimum is 495 for like 2 DO schools, the rest are in the 500's.....if they accepted that low much more people would be in... DO is moving in the direction of MD acceptance. Also, I've called meharry and asked about scores below 495 and they said they will still look at the overall application for an interview, so it may just be who you talk to on the phone that day

    I wasn’t implying that meeting the minimum equates to an acceptance. I meant that you won’t necessarily get screened out of a secondary. For sure DO schools accept wayyyy higher than that and most schools even say “we typically accept higher than the minimum.” Sorry if that was unclear!

    Your scores fit their range and if you go through last years thread, there were people with similar stats that got in. But no one can make a correct assessment with just your scores since Meharry looks at fit based on their mission.

    This school is complete trash. They should have said from the get go that they’ll only be sending out interviews to those with high scores. I could have saved my money on the secondary if I knew. Clearly they don’t care about looking to see if you fit with their mission if you have a high mcat score.
