    I think “low” is all relative per say. 30 is enough to fill about 1/4 of their total class, granted I’m not positive how many total acceptances they usually hand out

    Well I know most schools accept 2x their class size or almost that so I'd expect Arizona to accept about 200.

    I read last year's thread and it seems like the timing of rejection/acceptance matches this year. If this is true, the Axe is coming this week.

    Rejected from the interview waitlist, put on it 9/5. IS, LM 75. Also, I interviewed at Phoenix. I know yield protection is maybe a controversial concept at times... but I have this suspicion that Tucson is trying hard to build a class of people that will matriculate and therefore possibly neglecting high-er stat applicants, particularly in-state. Or, maybe I'm just grumpy?? :laugh:

    For those that are post-interview/pre-decision, does your "File Under Review" status on the welcome page show a red exclamation? Is that what it's supposed to be if everything is good to go and you're just waiting, or should it be a green check mark?

    Contrary to what the pre-med community likes to believe... this process isn’t ALL about stats. Maybe they just didn’t see you as a fit, f*** it, move on. (I don’t say this to be an dingus. Moreso to point out there is a lot that goes into it and it’s unpredictable. You’ll be aight.)

    Yield protection isn't only about stats really. Protecting yield is selecting students they believe would choose to go there. It may be that they were not convinced of this in some way by your interview. Or maybe the things you talked about *really* enjoying are just not things they offer. Or, like someone else said, could be they didn't see you as a good fit (which has nothing to do with being a great doctor).

    Hi guys! I was wondering if anyone who got an interview invite can share some insight about their LOR's.. I know this school is particular about having a LOR from a clinician who can attest to your patient interaction skills, but was anyone able to get around that with a LOR from a clinicial research PI?

    I volunteered at a free-health clinic for two years, but given the fact that the clinic was only open on Saturdays and different physicians volunteered their time every weekend, it was difficult to find a single physician who was willing to write a strong LOR. Yet, I still believe I truly fit in with Tucson's mission as I want to continue serving the medically underserved. So I took my chances hoping my research PI (who is an MD) wrote about my interactions with his own patient population.

    Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

    A letter from a clinical research PI should do you well, especially if he/she spoke towards your ability to interact with patients during your time in their research. I had two letters from clinical research MDs but I also had one from a physician mentor too. If you're asking specifically about receiving an interview or not, I read that their decision to extend an II or not is based primarily on your secondary, so I have no clue as to whether they read LOR's prior to the II.

    Gotcha. I’m in IS and still nothing from both schools. I’m beginning to wonder whether they already have enough post Il candidates on waiting list that they’ve stopped looking at apps anymore.

    Are you trying to say that we are still in the run? Or the ADCOMS are just too bogged down with other stuff that they just don’t have time to R us?
