    Does anyone know the post interview acceptance rate? And also once you get an interview are stats still important or are they mainly judging you as a person at that point?

    In terms of interview statistics, they interview 800 for 270 seats. As for your GPA/MCAT, I think once you get an interview invite, they aren't looked at anymore.

    If I’m remembering correctly it’s ~50-60%! So pretty good odds

    the website says that interviews take place through April...if this is true, do many of us still have a good shot at getting one?!

    Current MS1 here, for me when I got my interview invite in late March, I was reassured that they leave some seats open, because they know they interview until April. I also interviewed on the very last interview day and was not placed on the waitlist. I am not saying this always happens for everyone, I am just letting you know all hope is not lost. Good luck!

    Once you get the interview it is more about seeing past the statistics and judging you as a person!

    Current MS1 here! The interview day is really chill. Just be yourself and don’t forget to stick to who you are. But also, be sure to showcase how you would fit into Jefferson and how you envision yourself there. The student interviews are also very chill so don’t worry about it! PM me if you (or anyone else) needs anything else!

    So happy to be accepted here! It feels like all the work to get here paid off finally! For any current students, is the $100 deposit refundable or not and is it really not due until April without worrying about losing the spot? Or should it be put down sooner?

    I have multiple Jefferson MD letters on my app and the bulk of my hours/experiences have taken place at Jeff. I've spent so much time at SKMC that I saw an interview group for like the 4th time today haha. Yet, they're the only philly school (minus penn) that has not invited me to interview lol. The whole application process is such a crap-shoot :confused:

    Hey, same here. I've been doing research here full time all year, interviewed there last year, multiple Jeff MD letters... Obviously my number 1. I pass the interview group every Wednesday morning and give them all thumbs ups through the window while I walk by lol. They're right where I wanna be. Still haven't heard anything. What a terrible process
