    Placed on pre-II hold on 9/29. LM: 70, IS, complete 9/14. I'm really surprised by how fast their turn around is.

    Stupid question, but how do you check the status of your application?!

    When I login to my portal, it just shows that they've received everything, no status tab or anything like that. I haven't received a completion emails, just a submission one!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but admissions said decisions will come out earliest on the 16th right? I just want to make sure since this is probably going to be the first school I hear back from. Good luck to everyone else waiting for a final decision!

    I heard the earliest decision will be made/sent out from 10/15. I interviewed on 10/3, and they said the people who interviewed on that day will hear back from them from the first week of November.

    Hi everyone, I'm a MS1 at Upstate right now. I didn't browse the thread if anyone had received this from the adcom yet, but if you get a "hold for spring consideration", it isn't over! Me and three people at my interview were placed on hold for spring consideration in October, then interviewed in Feb and were admitted. Best of luck with your applications and if you have any questions specific to Upstate I'm happy to help.

    I don't know if you would know the answer to this, but how many of your classmates were admitted in October/How likely is it to be admitted in October for this school? I'm anxiously waiting for a decision that will most likely come out this week! Thanks!

    It’s usually normal to have a long silent period after completion unless you completed super early in the cycle.

    what's your definition of super early? I was complete for all of my schools during the last 2 weeks of August. Is this late? Haven't heard back from ~ 85-90% of my schools!

    I consider around mid July as super early, in your case it’s not early but not very late as well. I guess you will start to hear back in one month.

    Recently interviewed and liked the school a lot. Idk if it has been posted earlier in the thread, but they said they offer acceptances to 350-400 of the 750-800 interviewees.

    To be more accurate, they said they offer 420 acceptances, which makes the post interview acceptance rate of 53-56%.

    Hi friends pls post when you interviewed if you're accepted or put on a waitlist. I was not in the first interview round (oct 3rd), but I'd like to see if anyone from my cohort was accepted! Congrats to those who heard great news already, though!

    It just says congratulations on getting accepted or something like that, and to give a decision and deposit on a seat.

    Isn’t the MD/PhD program here not a true MSTP, as it is not NIH funded?

    Guys I am confused, if I want to pay the deposit to secure my place I need to accept the offer right? But can I withdraw later if I have better place to go? The office said we have two weeks to make the decision.

    Yes you need to accept the offer. I already payed the deposit and it is 100 dollars, which is refundable up until May 1st. It explains it as you go through the online acceptance pages.
