    Probably extra neurotic but my "date created" changed from Not Entered to my complete date? But I was placed on a pre-interview hold a while ago :/

    I’m a Canadian applicant, LM 69, submitted secondaries to all my schools of choice around mid July to Mid August. I have been rejected from 2 schools but they were top 15 med schools. The rest of the mid tier schools I applied to I haven’t heard anything from them except that my application is complete. Is this normal? Are they keeping my application on a “maybe” list or something because I’m an international applicant? I applied to “Canadian Friendly” schools which from my knowledge treat us the same as OOS.

    Hard to tell what "normal" is, but as you know it's tough to be international, even if you're canadian. Some mid tiers are very receptive to LM <70, but as a reference I'm LM 70, US citizen, and haven't heard from 20 of the 30 schools I've applied to (7 II, 3 R, 1 A).

    Accepted! LM 72, complete mid-August, interviewed late October. Lol got the email before checking the portal.

    35 schools applied, 1 interview invite (Upstate), 1 acceptance.

    Ladies and gentlemen, you only need one interview to get accepted into an MD school and become a doctor. Even if I get rejections from all of the other 34 schools, it won’t matter cause I’m gonna be a damn good physician! Believe that.

    Accepted !! Interviewed late October.
    Current students, can you list what you like/don't like about Upstate -in regards to curriculum, clerkship, the city in general, etc.
    Thanks!

    I agree wholeheartedly. I applied to 25, got two interviews, 1 acceptance and waiting to hear back on the second. But now no matter what happens I know I’ll be a doctor! Such a relief.

    If I want to change my mailing address, should I do it on the application page on AAMC or should I call the school? I'm going home for winter break so if I get accepted over the course of the break I'd like my acceptance stuff to be sent there.

    I wasn't put on hold but got an interview late last week. The only spots for interview were next week (too soon eek) or beginning of February. I'm OOS/Canadian, do you think waiting that long to interview will hurt my chances? Are there spots in January, that perhaps I should wait to see if they open up? Any advice appreciated :)

    My portal cleared this morning and I don't have a decision there so probably a reject/hold. Oh well

    Can any current students speak to the cost of living in Syracuse - specifically about on campus housing vs. off campus housing?

    Not a student (yet) but a Syracuse resident for 21 years. Syracuse is very cheap compared to the major cities (NYC/Boston/DC/Chicago/etc.) Whenever I'm home I'm amazed at how far my money goes. This is a bad example but you could get a beer that would cost $10-15 in the city for like $3-5 at a bar downtown. Off-campus housing is also very cheap, although much of it is the same housing as SU/Le Moyne students if you go in on a house with friends so they're definitely louder than I imagine the dorms are. A friend is a current student in the dorms and he wishes he lived off campus because the dorms are nice but they're pretty bare boned and you don't get to pick your roommate. A lot of people think that it's mandatory to live on-campus but that isn't the case.

    Overall, Syracuse is cheap

    Would you mind posting a picture of what a “cleared portal” looks like?

    Yeah, I called the admissions office, and they said that it has nothing to do with the decision (apparently), but it looks like anyone who got rejected on this forum had their portal cleared with no decision. Hoping that's not true, but I'm not getting my hopes up

    The 'your application is under committee review' disappears and there is/isn't a decision in its place

    Hmm.... I don’t feel like I ever saw it read “your application is under committee review”... I could also just not remember. Right now mine only has two columns... one says “admissions term” with fall 2019 under it and then the other says “date created” with the date my app was created underneath.. so does this seem like my portal has been cleared? Also I was originally put on hold

    Oh I have yet to receive an interview invite. Sorry I should have been more clear. I thought people were referring to cleared portals in regards to getting rejected or receiving an interview as well, not just rejection vs. acceptance. My portal has been cleared for a little while, I was just trying to figure out what it meant.
