    Expect decisions on Monday, fellas
    Based on that one guy’s post about decisions, Geisinger releases them the second Monday of the month

    It doesn’t, but a general rule of thumb that I’ve seen is ~2.5 X matriculates = accepted

    I have an interview coming up here this weekend. It's looking like there might be a rather big snow storm - would they be likely to cancel/reschedule interviews if the storm is bad enough? I'm hoping they don't...

    I was more trying to say that the snow storm was the day before my interview, I was told to move it two days prior to the interview.

    Absolutely brutal wait. I keep getting gmail notifications, and when it’s not Geisinger I’m so sad. I thought a Geisinger decision today would’ve helped me deal with the Birds’ loss yesterday

    Guess we all have to be even more patient

    I'm not sure whether they'll have gotten to you yet, I interviewed 11/12, but it's certainly possible! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you

    The email itself was generic, but it had an attached letter that was personalized. DM me?

    Good grief...so is the average turnaround for admissions decisions 2 months or more? Or did the holidays delay this batch of decisions?

    Congrats to all those accepted!!!

    During my interview she made it seem like it was a very good place to be in. Many people seem to get off the deferral list too.

    FWIW I've been sitting here on the deferred list since November. I think only one person in this thread has been accepted after being deferred. My guess is there will be more movement starting in February when the AMCAS choose your school tool becomes available and they have a better sense of who might end up matriculating there.
