    I'm sure someone has already asked about this, but how many interviews are there here? Is it one student interview and two faculty? Are they all open file? What did everyone think of the school? Thanks in advance everyone!

    Is there a certain day of the week or time of day that decisions are usually released here?

    do we think that a poster presentation, podium presentation, research assistant work, and a second job (waitressing at nights/weekends) is enough to write an update letter pre II? or should i wait until i here back about a few paper publications?

    There is 1 student interview and 1 faculty interview. The student interview is closed but the faculty interview is open. They are low stress interviews (typically)! I like the school but I may be a bit biased :)

    Absolutely! You should send the update in now. There really is no harm in sending an update in "too soon"

    No problem at all! You can always say that there is a "possibility that it gets published soon". And, when it does you can send that in as an update as well.

    Has there historically been any waitlist movement for the high-priority waitlist before April 30th? Or does the wait just extend until then typically?

    This is a hard question to answer. I would say that there is some movement before the April 30th deadline, but I would say that a lot of movement happens after people have made final decisions on schools.

    Submitted my secondary in July and haven't heard anything back. Is that basically a rejection at this point or do they still give out interviews?

    Nope, they interview really late into the season. They send Rs in waves so it's not over until it's over.

    Do you know when the update period was? Or if there will be another one? I was going to send an update as well. Thanks!

    Hello, I was just going through the curriculum for SKMC and was curious about the course material for

    1) "Introduction to Foundations of Medicine"

    2) host defense/blood (I assume this refers to the immune system)

    Has SKMC sent out any rejections or do they wait until the end of the cycle? I submitted my secondary on 08/14 with radio silence since. I am just trying to gauge my standing.

    Hi! Yeah so introduction to foundations of medicine is kind of covering the basics of inflammation, clinical skills, embryology, etc. Host defense and blood is the first real system you learn and that is the immune system.

    Do you have to pay the $100 deposit/fee to apply for financial aid?

    sorry if this has been asked already but can I send my previous semester grades as an update? and if so do you guys think if i got mostly A's but also a B and a B+ that it might not actually help me out to send in those grades? im very conflicted bc the A's are decently impressive given the subject matter i just couldn't pull through on the other two

    To send an update of Fall semester grades, would we just attach an unofficial transcript in pdf form and email admissions/upload on portal?

    Silly question, but for updates do we just attach a document to an email to the admissions email address? Or is there a way to upload things to the portal?
