    Congrats!! I was wondering if the adcom has been active or not lately - seems like they hadn't been moving much.

    Would it be a bad idea to email asking when the admissions committee will be meeting again to send out acceptances?

    Not entirely sure, did they not give you a flash drive with "next steps" showing a timeline? Ours said Jan-March

    It says November-March, I was just wondering if it would be worth shooting an email and asking when their next round of acceptances would be

    I'm hoping they'll send out a round of acceptances tomorrow on account of all of the adcom activity lately (plus Thanksgiving being the day after tomorrow; I've heard stories of med schools sending out R's/Acceptances before holidays to either soften the blow/give you some good news to talk about)! Otherwise, maybe an email asking about it after the long weekend might not be a bad idea (hoping they'll be in a good mood after the weekend!)

    I got an email a week ago saying my application is under review by the adcom (post interview). I think this means I'm in the next group that'll be decided on. They also said during my interview that they meet 2X/month to make decisions. So I'd expect some acceptances within the next week or so. I'm just an applicant though, so nothing I say is guaranteed of course.

    Just got the post-II 'we sent out acceptances today; you weren't one of them but this isn't a rejection' email. Congrats to everyone who got the acceptance call, and good luck to everyone who's still waiting!

    I'm curious to know how many applications the committee reviews during each session. I interviewed late October so I wonder if they got to anyone who interviewed after September.

    we do not give that information, but usually send a few day's worth of interviews to them at once. We usually get you to committee within a month of you interviewing.

    Anyone know if it’s common to get accepted after getting this email?

    Yes! From what both the staff and the current med students were saying during the interview day, it is just a part of the process. It's very likely you could get that message a couple of times before they give you an acceptance. Seems like they even take many people from their waitlist as well, if it comes down to that for you.

    My application just went under review after interviewing on 11/17, does anyone remember what the entails? They projected decisions between January and March right?

    Decisions started October 15th but they've only sent out two rounds of acceptances so far. That email just means your application will now be reviewed by the adcom whenever it is they meet.

    They don’t release that information, unfortunately. Last years thread is helpful in seeing how the process went for everyone that cycle.

    My status has never said anything, no R, no interview, no hold. I'm an AZ resident. My secondary was complete 10/30. Hopefully, I'll hear back by the end of the month.
