    I thought it went well. Honestly, best advice is to just relax and don't let the nerves get to ya. They made it a very relaxing/fun experience and all the faculty and students were super chill!

    That's good to hear!
    What was the format of the interview? traditional or MMI?

    The good news is that you will learn to spell the name of the city, eventually.

    The key is to intentionally mispronounce it in your head. "Tuck-son." Works every time. :)

    If there are any current students in the thread or if anyone knows the answer, does UofA give you dedicated Step 1 study time? I see the basic sciences review that is 6 weeks but I want to know if there is also dedicated study time

    Yes, there is definitely dedicated Step 1 study time and it is currently at 6 weeks. There is also a winter recess right before the dedicated study time starts and it is 2 weeks long.

    First, I would recommend downloading a map of the campus. I got lost and someone from admissions had to come get me - embarrassing situation you don't want to find yourself in! I mistakenly assumed things would be easy to find, and they actually are - but all the construction threw off from when I had visited before. Second, prepare like you would any other interview. The MMI is pretty much exactly as advertised. I reviewed my application and secondary, reviewed why I chose the school in the first place. During that preparation I wrote down questions or things I felt I would want to know that would influence my decision if were lucky enough to have multiple acceptances. There is plenty opportunity to ask these throughout the day with various admissions staff. They are all super friendly! Lunch here was also second to none!

    Does this school accept post-interview letters of intent?

    You can directly email admissions and ask, but I don't believe they accept letters of intent.

    Next time, try the Search Bar. This question has been asked at least five times in this thread alone...

    They interviewed 320 IS Applicants last year and are currently at 171 (Admissions Tracker | College of Medicine - Tucson) so probably around halfway done with IS interviews. Still plenty time there.

    UA has only accepted 30 people this cycle! Is this number low compared to other schools at this point in the cycle?

    30 is the number admissions told us during the interview day on the date I interviewed there.
