anyone who interviewed MD/PhD know when they said we would hear back by?
congrats! When were you complete?
anyone have a link to student groups and clubs for stony brook? Can't find it on their website.
So where is SB at? What % of IIs do you guys think have been sent out so far?
When do Rs come?
First time here, just waitlisted today.
I have a question, how many students go on their waitlist? At my interview, I was told that around 20 percent are accepted off, and the numbers of acceptances total is around 440 out of 740 interviews.
Waitlisted today. Interviewed 11/19. Will be withdrawing my name from the list.
Accepted! Feeling very happy and relieved. Interview was October 19th, but I took the Casper on October 25th.
Anyone complete in early-mid September hear back yet?
In my acceptance letter, it says the offer is contingent upon satisfactory completion of coursework to which I've committed myself in the application. Some of the "Current/Future" courses (none are prereqs for Stony Brook) I listed for 2018-19 aren't offered or would not work for my schedule. I listed these courses b/c some other schools had them as prereqs.
How strict is the admissions office about completion of all the future coursework?
Any suggestions on the closest hotel to the school/where the interview takes place? Thanks!
rejected pre-interview Canadian
I'm so sorry. This is a pretty brutal process. Can you please share your complete date and your stats?
I stayed at the Three Village Inn, about 5-10 minutes from the school. It was a pretty nice bed and breakfast.
Guess I'll ask again, but does anyone have an idea of how large the waitlist is? It can't be 300 like MSAR says because that would mean no student gets rejected post interview, as they accept 440 out of 740.
Thank you for helping my chances
Does anyone know whether there is a pre-interview dinner?
No there is not
Is there an accepted students fb page?
II today! Complete 08/13
Congrats! What days are available?
Thank you! Interviews are on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and earliest available day was 01/10... They don't give you days to choose from but instead you tell them what days you're available
Has anyone had luck with ITA emails? I sent one over the weekend for the week of January 10th and they seem to be giving out interviews for that week today
How long did they take to respond?
About 3 weeks
Anyone know if people who are accepted tend to hear back sooner? Based off last years thread it looks like some people heard back as early as 2-3 weeks when they were accepted
Interviewed in early December and was wondering how much they adhere to their 6 week promise? I.e. I imagine they review candidates in groups post interview, and if some candidates interviewed close to when the AdCom meets, then in theory they should be hearing back earlier than 6 weeks? Or is this like a strict rule? Just curious
Also interviewed in early december but honestly wouldn't keep my hopes up for earlier than 6 weeks, especially with the holiday season, you know?
It’s going to vary since some people heard back in 2-3 weeks, others take longer than 6. I would imagine that the next released set of decisions would be comprised of most November interviewees with maybe a few December interviewees in between.
Hey! How long is the interview day here? I can't find much information but want to make travel plans. Thanks!
It depends on the times of your interviews. you should get an email about a week or so before your interview day. In my case, I wrapped up by two or so, and just took the next LIRR for New York. Some people had interviews scheduled after two I believe. Also, my day started early in the morning so I opted to sleep in a nearby hotel the day before
I heard back in 4.5 weeks and was very surprised it didnt take the full 6 weeks since thanksgiving was in that span of time
Depending on when your first interview is scheduled for. I had both my interviews before the lunch time which was at 12 pm. from 12-1:30 theres a lunch, tour, and admissions talk...some people had interviews after that but some people were able to leave right after that
has anyone else been complete since late july - early august OOS and heard nothing? bad or bad sign? lol
Haven't heard back since mid august but did send in an update so I'm not sure where that puts me
II today- complete mid-September
Any guesses on the next wave of decisions? I am hoping that we will find out before the holidays.
do you mind sharing the exact date of completion?
when did you complete the application? Congrats btw!
Sent from my iPhone using SDN mobile
Mid august I think!
Withdrew interview. Good luck team!
Did you get the week you needed?
how do people typically go about finding roommates?
ACCEPTEDDDD !!!! Received email this morning. Interviewed 12/4, so excited big things happening here.
Accepted!! Interviewed 12/6. LM 70, IS, over the moon stoked!
That’s crazy turnaround. Did they tell you you would hear back in 6-8 weeks?
