    Hmmm...a bit vague with respect to any more invites going out, but I guess it could still happen via a very last minute invite. Good to know I can cross this one off my list after Jan 31st.

    Also, if they didn’t review my app, I want my money back ;)

    I guess we'll see on Thursday, since that's when they seem to send out acceptances. Still holding out hope for October interviewees.

    Do we think it’s likely that they accept more people from September and October interviews?

    Does anyone know when PRIME applicants who got deferred to regular MD are going to hear back?

    Unfortunately, I don’t think anyone knows the timing. Some folks, who were deferred from other programs to MD only, mentioned earlier that there are interview dates set for late January. It’s possible that they will still release II’s this month if spaces are open. After January, they are planning to get back to PRIME applicants by early March, so I would expect that people who were not offered II’s would hear back either then or (hopefully) earlier.

    LOL, maybe never. When I called them about our PRIME predicament a few weeks back they were still deciding if they were even going to consider us for regular MD.

    You should have gotten an email a day or two after your acceptance about how to apply. I’ve already submitted the paperwork and received my award.

    Does the award include scholarships? Or is it purely need-based aid

    I think it’s just need based. For merit scholarships, it sounds like you’ll get a call from Dean Hall.

    The group I interviewed with in November was told that we would hear back by January 15th if we got in or were waitlisted. Fingers are still crossed that we hear back, but it might be late because they're extending interviews. Good luck to everyone!!!

    Anyone else submit a secondary back in July and still not hear anything (R or II)? For people who have been rejected post-secondary, did the portal change at all after you got the rejection email?

    Considering Geffen's mission and assuming that PRIME applicants would most likely have a strong interest in serving underprivileged populations, I hope they are giving applicants transferred from PRIME to MD a fair chance at regular MD

    I have a feeling more people will hear back on Thursday... I thought they always called on Thursdays. I was surprised that someone mentioned a Tuesday before

    I have tried to multiple times in December and January, and it has always gone to the voicemail. I just took it as an omen that I wasn't supposed to call. It's been a really rough wait since my interview in October.
