    They said (in a phone call not too long ago) that they're giving out IIs until mid-January! There's some hope left for us!

    Final decisions are in February if I'm remembering correctly from my interview day, so my guess is that they are winding down with IIs. In the last 2 years' threads, it seems like there was a big slew of pre-II rejections around Jan 25th.

    Oh man. Wonder if everyone who interviewed in December will hear back then or if its just some of us. I thought the interview went so well too.

    Congrats to everyone who’s getting the A though!!

    Don't worry, the majority is accepted later. They said only a select few get earlier acceptances.

    Congrats to those accepted!

    Anyone know when they stop sending IIs? I'm sure odds are low at this point, but just curious.

    Pretty sure they said till mid-January, so that would probably mean that next week is the final week for any remaining IIs.

    Also got deferred. Does anyone who is planning to send in updates know the best way to send new grades? Should we send in a formal transcript or just list them out?

    congrats to those accepted! :D

    Meanwhile I got deferred. I checked the portal and the letter (not email) specifically says decisions will be told in March, rather than during February. Was wondering if this was the same for others who were deferred?

    For people who have already interviewed, could you give some insight about the one-on-one interviews? Were they more conversational/did they ask any tricky questions? Thank you in advance!!

    Very conversational, I don’t think there were any set questions. First interview we talked primarily about my research, second primarily Chicago hospitals.

    Relaxed. It’s 2-on-1 with a brief activity. Just listen to the other interviewee, brainstorm, and be respectful.

    It was pretty chill actually. Mostly faculty interviews. The MD interview was relaxed as well. Loved the students and the bar they took us to. No pressure at all. Plus it was business casual, which I think helped keeper the vibe super relaxed.

    Is there a get together event the evening before the interview? Haven't heard of anything, but don't want to miss out!

    there wasn't when I interviewed! but you have a lot of time to interact casually with current students during the interview day itself. It's very relaxed and meant to be informative for you, so ask whatever questions you want!
