    Not really too sure to be honest with you. When they do happen, things are generally kept hush hush until the media catches wind, which is what happened here.

    Hi - sorry to hear you had a bad interview day experience. That is honestly not the norm here because we try our best to make everyone feel welcome and relaxed for their interviews! Unfortunately, first impressions are tough to change but feel free to contact any of the current students here if you have any further questions/complaints or even suggestions as to what we can do to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future!

    That is a great idea. Thank you for commenting. I think if I do get accepted I will call to set up a second-look type thing!

    I had a good experience here but I will say one of my tour guides mentioned that he should've gone to Buffalo so was definitely put off by that....

    Tbh, I also left the tour with a off-put mood. Maybe it was the weather that day, but the place just seemed dark and depressing. The student tour guides were knowledgeable and tired their best to sell the school, but compared to other tours I've been on, the place just seems dead. Not sure if others experienced the same thing I did...

    Does anyone know if the stations are open or closed-file, in general?

    Placed on a pre-interview hold. Is this basically a soft rejection?

    For those that interviewed, is there a place to store luggage? Will be traveling back right from the campus afterwards at the end of the day.

    Nice! I got accepted into RMSP! I actually set up a meeting with Carrie Roseamelia PhD, the director of RMSP, to talk about the program. I highly suggest it, she's super cool and can tell you more about the program than what's on the website.

    Hey!
    Has anyone who interviewed on/near 10/15 heard anything yet? I just checked my portal and it says "Your application is under committee review, and you will be notified as soon as a decision has been made." Anyone else have this message?

    Yup! Message appeared I think the day after my interview if I remember correctly. And as far as hearing back post interview, someone who interviewed 10/10 heard back last Friday it seems!

    Is there a way to see if you're under review at this school?

    I remember the dean saying something about those interviewing in early October getting our decisions by the first week of November, but it seems like no one has gotten anything from Upstate...

    Edit: Just check my portal and the "Your application is under committee review" message has disappeared. Looking back to previous threads, that's an indication that a decision is imminent.

    Did you receive an email or just the portal?

    I interviewed 10/3 and got ACCEPTED (I assume today too), but I never received an email. I went on the portal (which is not the most modern system) just now and there was an acceptance :)

    Sorry to hear that fellas, good luck with your remaining schools!

    Not to add fuel to the fire, but how did ya'll think the MMI went? Obviously, its not the only factor in play but just curious.

    Thanks dude. I thought it went well, I was told I had good answers by quite a few interviewers. Unless there was one station that got me red flagged, I don't think MMI performance was the basis of my rejection.
