    Does NJMS get back to applicants in the order in which they interviewed? I saw there were some people who interviewed after me that have already heard back

    it probably depends on whether your interviewer was able to make the committee meeting. if they weren't, their decision has to wait till the next meeting when your interviewer is there!

    Does anyone here know how financial aid works for med school? Do we get grants, and what is the most amount of aid that we can get?

    Based on financial aid presentations I’ve seen at other schools, most schools only give need based financial aid and I believe the amount varies from school to school. You have to fill out fafsa and there’s also external scholarship programs you can apply to. I’m not sure how NJMS specifically does things though

    Yes I filled it out but haven't heard back. I've heard that public med schools don't give much aid/scholarships so probs gonna have to take out a lot of loans

    It might be too late for you to send a letter at this point, but I sent a letter to both the person who interviewed me and to the dean of admissions (whom I spoke with one-on-one during the interview day). I sent a thank you note to both via email and both responded to me - they definitely do have time to not only read, but respond to thank you letters as well.

    I called admissions and they said their timeline for decisions post-interview is 4-6 weeks. She noted that we are coming up on the holiday however so we should expect a little longer if you are within that 4-6 week threshold rn

    Does that mean that if people from the same day haven’t heard yet, it’s probably a waitlist or reject?

    Nah usually it also depends on if your interviewer met with committee. Don't read too much into it.

    When is it acceptable to reach out to Dr. Heinrich or admissions regarding a post-II update? It was been about 8 weeks since my interview

    The only mandatory agenda item is a 1-hr interview at the time you schedule. You will also have the opportunity to attend an optional tour (12 PM) and optional student interview (any time between 10 AM-12 PM and 2-3 PM, I think). You should be done by 2 or 3 latest.
