    Canadian here with an Interview Invite scheduled for Oct 2. sGPA = 3.77, MCAT = 515, somewhat of a unique set of ECs and personal story.

    Complete on July 10, but I believe they didn't receive my CASPER results until around August 17th.

    Best of luck to you, the invite is probably on it's way!

    Would anyone happen to know if the interview is open or closed file?

    It is open and they looked very closely at some details so I would advise future interviewees to carefully review their primary and secondary.

    Hey guys or girls! Fellow Canadian applicant here. They don't actually take casper into consideration until after your interview, it is part of your post-interview score, so it isn't likely that your casper results affect your II schedule.

    I got complete notification August 28 GPA 3.73 MCAT 524, PhD candidate, haven't heard anything yet! Good luck!!

    I was complete 7/11 and send the Casper test as soon as they informed people it was required afterwards

    I think he/she meant that this school automatically sends out a secondary to every applicant that submitted a primary through AMCAS. Basically there is no screen or review process to deciding who gets secondaries.

    So that means that you should get yours very soon.

    It means they send you one as soon as your AMCAS application is verified, at least it was like that in my case!

    II today! LM 72-74. OOS. Any advice on scheduling this interview? hotels nearby? It says to e-mail the secretary I'm assuming to pick a date - any Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday.

    Does anyone know if they are receptive to ITAs? I am interviewing for another NY school (MD/PhD) in mid-November and its a very expensive trip for me from the West Coast.

    I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn (affiliated with the university) and it was really nice, about a 5 min walk to the hospital/medical school. Interview day is very laid back, you have two traditional interviews - one with a med student and the other with faculty. I wouldn’t stress about it at all, they just want to get to know you as a person.

    It says 6-8 weeks from Interview for a final decision. Hopefully it might go quicker? Especially if the interview was early?

    I commuted from Manhattan and ended up having to leave my house around 4:30 b/c of the train schedule. I was being extra careful, but the only 2 options I had were 2 hours apart and one got me there just before my appointment time and one got me there a few hours before (and I wasn't about to take a chance on the LIRR arriving right on time). I don't know the easiest way from Brooklyn, but I imagine you'd have a similarly long day.

    I think I am planning on driving. That way I can also have the alone time to think/prepare.

    For scheduling an interview, are we supposed to send any information? Or just request it be scheduled?

    I just emailed and asked to schedule. They told me to send dates I was available after a specific date. When I did that they scheduled me for the first available

    During business hours, it was like within 2 minutes. Really quick turn around.
