Have you gotten everything in? LIke all your letter of recs?
There is no minimum. Median is 511.
There is a minimum. Check the bottom of your app. I think it is 497.
Edit: From the app:
Minimum cumulative Total GPA (as reported by AMCAS) of 2.80.
Minimum cumulative score of 497 on the most recent eligible MCAT. Eligible MCATs for the 2019 admissions cycle are those recorded in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Yes, I was marked complete the same day (7/27) but haven’t heard anything in terms of interview invite or rejection.
I hope someone can help with this "marked complete" thing you speak of. In the portal it shows that I submitted my app on 8/3/18. I did have one letter writer not submit her letter until 8/31/18. Everything else, including CASPR score, was in on 8/3. The portal shows that I submitted on 8/3, but I've never gotten a status update showing my file is complete. I just have this message:
Once your file has been processed, updates about the status of your application, including the receipt and processing of all letters of recommendation, will appear on this status page. Before that time, your status here will NOT change. If you are concerned about the status of your letters, please verify with AMCAS that they have been submitted and that you have designated OHSU as a recipient.
I assumed this meant they just hadn't gotten to my app yet, but what you all are posting about being marked complete has me wondering. Any insight?
Yes, I’m wondering the same thing. My LORs were sent even before I submitted my secondary. I have the same message and worried my file isn’t complete. Also, OHSU doesn’t require CASPer
OHSU has not processed your guys' apps yet. You will see a check box when your secondary app is processed and your file is marked complete.
Oh okay. I submitted mid August...waiting game I guess
I submitted my secondary on August 12, and just got the update in the Portal saying my application is complete (10.18). All of my LORs and transcripts were available by the time I submitted my secondary. I imagine yours will be updated shortly.
Have you been marked processed or complete yet? I submitted everything the same day and my status hasn't changed. I'm thinking nearly 3 months is an awfully long time and am considering calling.
I think I’d maybe call- the office is super friendly and nice so it can’t hurt in my opinion.
I was marked complete on 7/5 and haven’t heard anything back. Any other IS applicants complete around that time still in the same boat? The suspense is terrible!
Spoke too soon... II today!!!!! Interview day options in early November.
Still in that boat, but happy for you good luck!
I received my II Tuesday too! Have they responded to you about about your date yet? I haven't heard back from them since replying.
Congrats! When were you complete?
Thank you! I was complete on 7/11/18.
My status hasn't changed.
Thanks! Hopefully, I'll be marked complete soon. Are you OOS or IS?
Right under my “your application has been processed”, there is a sentence in bold that says my file was complete 7/27/18.
I had the same problem. My interview date was just confirmed yesterday afternoon. Apparently the coordinator was busy with MMIs and was out of the office which caused the delay!
II just now! LM 70. OOS, but met one of the special criteria. I turned in my secondary on 8/20. Complete this month.
Congrats! Would you mind sharing your official complete date?
Submitted 7/6, but they didn't review/mark complete my application until 10/6.
II a couple of hours ago! Complete early August I think
I AM DYING over waiting!! I keep going back and forth between feeling like I'm gonna get in and then I switch to dreading rejection since I was axed last year.
Seriously... It's been almost 7 weeks since my interview. Wishing you luck!
Oh dang, you haven't heard anything back yet? I was really hoping they would stick to their 4-6 week decision making timeline.
I don't think this applies to the first couple of interview dates.
At my interview, they said that they weren't going to make any decisions until around this week. OHSU is also notoriously slow. They really take their time on their decisions and care a lot about the class that they are admitting. It's really awesome... except for when you're waiting forever.
I'm scared for this Thurs/Fri.
Oh thanks for the info! Good luck to you all!
Any OOS who submitted in September still waiting to be marked complete?
Yes. I submitted early September and haven't gotten any updates since. Status is still unchanged on the portal as well.
I submitted early August, and I'm still not marked as complete in the portal. I did end up calling OHSU last week, and the person I spoke to looked up my application and said "you're in the queue."
Don’t fret! The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese
Definitely not fretting, @Red_matahari ! I know that OHSU has a longer cycle and moves slowly and carefully through their apps. Just posting here so that folks complete in September know the deal.
Yeah plus OHSU interviews their “mission groups” first. So Oregon residents, people who are considered underserved or ubderrepresented in medicine, and I think there is one more?
And then they interview people who don’t fall into those categories afterward.
Hey guys new to this. I'm an out of state applicant. I submitted secondary on 08/10/2018. My file was complete on 09/05/2018. I was offered an interview last week!
Me too! (OOS/similar complete date) did you choose the Nov 20th date?
I responded with my preferred date within 5 minutes and got a confirmation email a day later.
Offered interview last week as well, OOS secondary completed mid august. Only took me about an hour to reply about my preferred date and they still haven't gotten back to me. Has anyone else had this delay?
Actually mine isn’t until Jan 8th but good luck!
For those who have already interviewed - is the one-on-one interview open or closed file?
110 percent open. My interviewer knew my file like the back of his hand. They are just blinded to your MCAT score and GPA but they have everything else.
Isn't that the difference between closed and open? Closed shields MCAT and GPA. Open doesn't.
I've been at truly closed interviews where the interviewers know nothing about you before they talk to you, so maybe shielded stats is "partially open/partially closed".

Interviewed 10/25 and the waiting is already driving me nuts! Has it typically taken 4-6 weeks to hear like they say?
