    Does anyone have any idea when we’re all going to hear back? The lack of transparency about admission dates is incredibly frustrating.

    Hey, I understand your frustration. I interviewed in November and I have a friend who had his interview even earlier. Neither of us have heard back yet. I don't know how much this admissions process has been frustrating you, and I don't want to sound presumptuous, but don't allow the admissions process to take a toll on you. Be the better person by looking past this slow, grueling waiting period and finding opportunities to enjoy life or improve yourself. Find the holiday months as an opportunity for personal growth with the mindset that you will be attending medical school come Fall 2019. That's how I've been handling the situation. I've been spending a lot of my time this break learning three languages, working on my passion, and picking up extra shifts at my work. I believe that all of us here are capable of being patient and understanding of the AdComs, and I believe we owe it to ourselves to find opportunities to focus on our own growth and exploration (after years of working so hard to earn the privilege of going to medical school) before we matriculate. Happy New Year and I hope 2019 brings excitement and prosperity to you!

    Does anyone have an idea when the admissions committee will be meeting this month? I was hoping to send in my transcript so it could be considered with my file.

    Does UIC send pre-interview rejections now, or do they wait until the end of the cycle (Spring time)?

    I submitted my campus preferences via the portal mid-December. Any idea when I will hear about my campus placement? The timeline is pretty unclear..

    Just be yourself and know your application. They just want to get to know you as a person. Good luck!

    Hi everyone,

    Has anyone done the applications for the MD degree programs such UMED, IMED, and GMED? The applications are now open but I am not sure if you are supposed to generally wait till you are accepted first.

    Is anyone considering calling the office today? Do we know whether today is even the day to expect decisions to come out?

    If it is today, I would imagine notifications would go out near EOD.

    It changed about an hour ago. I had just just checked it like 30 mins before and it was the same so it must have been shortly after that. I interviewed mid November.

    When did you interview? Which campus? Would you mind sharing the first initial of your last name? I’m just trying to figure out if there is an order to this

    I mean, there's no reason to believe it won't be a "small" wave, just like it was before Christmas.
