    If you have the option of doing a student interview, definitely do it. The student interview has quite a bit weight and while it is "optional" it won't look too good if you decline it.

    I think they're backed up since a lot of committee members were on vacation.

    For those that just recently received an acceptance call- should we be receiving an email with next steps soon? Just want to make sure I’m not behind in anything

    So I somehow missed the email to upload my photo, and when I went to check my portal today it said "upload document by 8/08/18." I submitted my picture today but do you think it's a problem that it's 10 days after the deadline???

    did you guys get a confirmation email when their secondary app was submitted and/or complete? I submitted on 8/11 and haven't heard a thing.. not sure if something's wrong or if I'm just getting paranoid and worried for no reason. (RD)

    Nope, I didn't get any confirmation email either even after uploading the pic to the portal.

    Anyone who has been admitted, aside from the stuff in the accepted students portal is there anything else we need to do at this point? Really want to make sure I don't fall behind or miss something.

    I was complete 7/30 and got an II on 9/7. I don't think its really linear because people complete after have gotten II's before me.

    What’s the NJMS interview style? MMI or traditional? Also, it’s rolling decisions so is scheduling a mid-late November interview going to hurt my chances?

    It's a traditional one on one interview. And since it's rolling the earlier you can schedule the better, but I don't think mid November is necessarily late

    The time should be stated in your interview invitation e-mail. It's a good idea to arrive at least 10 minutes before, though.

    Ok, it's just kind of strange to me because most schools have an info session or welcoming event at the beginning of the day, so I was wondering if there was something similar here.

    Yeah, I figured that's why you asked; it is kind of unique compared to the way I know other schools perform their interview days. My NJMS interview day didn't have a welcoming event nor an info session, but there was a campus tour and an optional student interview. The assistant dean did come speak to us as a group just before and after the tour. Whatever scheduled event you have first during the day (whether it be the faculty interview, student interview, or tour), come at least 10 minutes before the start time. Good luck!

    Can we schedule the student interview for AFTER the faculty interview or will this look bad / is it detrimental to us at all?

    Why would it look bad?? I don’t think that matters at all. I would just say to make sure you can still do the tour and lunch because that’s when you get to speak to the students and learn the most about the school.
