    Don’t mind at all! The only dates available for me were the 22nd and 28th of January, which were both PRIME-specific dates. I assume those on the traditional MD track have earlier dates available.

    I know UCSF isn't receptive to updates, but are they receptive to LOIs/ITAs? They are my #1 and I've heard nothing since being complete in July.

    Did you ask about ITA, LOI or both?

    I'm wondering if an LOI is smart post interview or if I should wait for a decision.

    When I interviewed in early September, Dean Wofsy said that we would probably hear back in December. Has anybody interviewed recently that has an updated timeline on acceptances? Thanks :)

    Hey Lucca! I'm a long time lurker, congrats on your cycle!!

    Do you know if it is like, general interest, or are they very targeted in who they give secondary invites to? I mean, considering the small number of MSTP interviews given each cycle, they have to have filled their spots up by now, right?

    I mean I have no way of knowing how many interview slots are left but I do know that UCSF are very deliberate with their secondary invites, so it’s still significant to get one.

    I received a secondary for mstp recently as well, but I was complete in October. When I checked on their website they listed the following stats
    AMCAS applications indicating MSTP: 605
    Secondary applications: 522
    Interviewed: 50
    Matriculated: 11

    I will probably still fill out and submit by the December 1st deadline and hold out some hope, but it seems as though a large chunk of mstp applicants gets a secondary compared to MD only.

    Ouufff. So, probably not great news that we got it so late then? It's just so strange to receive an invitation to apply 4 days before it's due! I don't know what to make of it. Probably will fill it out and send it anyway, but I feel like I am setting myself up for disappointment.

    Oh and thanks for sharing the info!

    Yes, because interviews have already started. The earlier you submit, the better your chance is to get an interview. They likely have filled most, if not all, of their interview spots. They're probably only looking for one or two more people (if any) at this point.

    I found the following graph pretty helpful. There aren't that many people who report getting interview invites in December. However, there probably aren't that many people getting secondaries, so it could be proportional.

    True, although I haven't heard back from most of my schools yet (granted I applied to a million). I think they hold on to most applications until the end and send interview invites as they continue to evaluate old and new applications that come in. Chin up though! I've been getting some of my interviews two weeks before the interview date and there are plenty of interviews from here until Feb. I'm still crossing my fingers for a couple more. Submitting a secondary this late sounds like masochism to me, but I'm going to do it anyway :(

    Yup exactly what SlythenClaw said. Those stats are only for MD/PhD applicants. I have no idea about the other programs. I have seen some numbers thrown around like ~7000 apps ~2500 secondaries and ~ 500 interviews, but these numbers are essentially RUMORS with NO proof.

    Hi everyone! Has anyone who submitted their secondary over 12 weeks ago reached out to the admissions committee? The portal says that the review process for a potential interview should take up to 12 weeks. I'm at about 12.5 weeks now and still haven't heard anything so I'm considering emailing them, but I also don't want to seem impatient...
