    I'm so sorry I didn't realize people use II for both secondary AND interview. I only got a secondary last cycle but was invited to their master's program that didn't require an interview. Sorry for the confusion!!

    How long are responses for post-secondary R/II supposed to take on average? Six weeks? Eight weeks?

    That was an indirect way of prompting folks to post their current wait time. :laugh:

    I am at 7 weeks.

    That is a long wait. I am not sure if this is correct, but apparently for some candidates they sent out the II before they even complete their secondary application.

    Uhm ... yikes. That doesn't sound right, considering you submitted early. Have you tried to contact them? I know that is mostly a dead end with schools this time of year.

    Would anyone suggest emailing them? They don't pick up when you call, nor do they have a way to leave a voicemail.

    Does anyone know if they'll send out rejection letters? Or do we just... not get another message to move forward?

    A friend of mine applied here twice. She says that they’re pretty good with sending rejections throughout the cycle, and they send the bulk of the pre-II rejections out around March.

    Have there been any recent waves of IIs? I was complete early to mid October and have not heard anything yet (I actually did not even receive the complete email like some of you have).

    I’ve been waiting since mid August and NOTHING as well. Not sure if they do silent rejections or just taking their time with review...

    Does anyone else remember admissions telling us at the interview that we would hear the acceptance decision on December 15th?

    Also accepted! Stats in signature, IS, no legacy or other strong connection to Meharry.
    Timeline - Primary: 6/29; Secondary: 8/3; II: 9/28; Interviewed: 10/15; Acceptance: 12/17
    Email received around 1300 but it doesn't reveal their decision. You have to download a decision letter off the portal.
    Good luck to everyone waiting for updates!

    I'm currently waiting to hear back do you think they are doing it alphabetically ? My last name starts with a W ? Also I was granted an interview prior to submitting my secondary application . I applied October 31st and received my interview on the 7th imbedded in my secondary. Did they say when rejections are being sent out ? I'm a nervous wreck right about now . I only applied to two schools since I waited so long to get an application in .

    Damn, I wish I was in your shoes. Not only did you apply late but you also got a II before even submitting the secondary application.

    Yeah, but I have received any correspondence today and I think they issue majority of their acceptance today . What is your backstory?

    Have you(or anyone else in the same situation) received a response yet? I still haven't gotten a complete email, despite sending everything in mid October.

    TBH I don't know how they review applications/send out decisions. It could be by name, but I honestly wouldn't know. And they told us during our interview that decisions in general would be sent out near 12/15/18, so I'm assuming that means acceptances, rejections, and wait lists. Good luck, just hang in there. Don't stress yourself out!

    Hey everyone. Congrats to my fellow "acceptees" lol Does anyone know if the deposit is non-refundable or not? When I looked on AAMC website, it mentioned that they were but I didn't know if that varied from school to school.

    How do you know if you are under review. All I can see is if the application was submitted and fee paid ... is there another portal?

    Did anyone complete their application right before the deadline on Dec 15th? My AMCAS application was submitted to Meharry 11/8 but wasn’t complete with recommendation letters until 12/13. I received a secondary application 11/8 and completed it 11/9. I received an email saying my application was under review 11/9 and haven’t heard anything from them since. Is there anyone else that applied that late? Have y’all heard anything from Meharry?

    I didn’t apply late but just to make you feel better. I’ve been complete and “under review” since late August and NADA. I have no idea how they do this process. But there’s a lot of people that haven’t heard a peep from them and have been complete for a long time.

    That makes me feel slightly better. I’ve been feeling anxious because my application was completed so late and I wasn’t sure how long people usually wait for a response if they were granted an interview or if my application even had a chance this late. Thanks! I hope you get a response soon!
