    Just called. Lady said they’re still updating portals and it could run through Monday afternoon. No, that does not mean portals will be updated over the weekend.

    Do you only get accepted to the school where you interview? My interview is at the Peoria campus. Does this mean if I am accepted I will only be accepted to the Peoria school? Or can I pick after that?

    You submit a preference later, but there's no guarantee that you'll get your first choice.

    Anyone know what time the office closes so I know when to stop obsessively refreshing my portal? :poke:

    So I'm assuming they are done updating portals for the day since the office closed at 5pm.

    Congrats to all accepted.
    Did you just get accepted, or you just check portal? I am wondering if they are still updating the status.

    How frequently have you been checking? Do you have an idea of when it may have been updated?

    I refreshed the portal like a million times and suddenly a new tab popped up and the status changed from "forwarded to .." to "Congrats of your acceptance..".

    Anyone that hasn't had their portal updated at all...do you think we should expect a decision on Monday? Not sure what it means to not hear anything today.

    If I remember correctly from my interview, they said they input decisions one at a time by hand? And so it takes a while. It also seems like they're going in order of interview dates (maybe)? I'm hanging in there till Monday

    It's pretty laid back, two faculty interviews and one student interview is what I had. Come prepared to talk about yourself, have knowledge about medicine, be able to think critically, and you should be fine (nothing out of the extraordinary tbh).

    So they said that Monday they would continue to update portals... are they doing it like last time where everyone who was accepted already found out on Friday?

    I interviewed in August and love this school so this is torture

    Does anyone have this status? "A final decision was made on your application on . If you have not received email communication regarding the outcome please email the Office of Medical College Admissions: [email protected]" I used to be at the "under consideration by screening committee." Not sure if this is a bad thing because I haven't received any e-mails from UIC. Did those of you who got II have a different status in your portals at the time of your II?

    Someone earlier in the post had said that they knew someone who attended the school who had originally been deferred. All I remember is at my interview they said more students would be deferred because they couldn’t see who was holding an acceptance but that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t come off and to not worry too much about it. Who knows if it’s true tho

    Are we thinking that more acceptances will come out Monday?

    I interviewed in September and was neither deferred nor accepted yesterday. Or does it mean that they only have the rejections left to send out for Monday?

    Has anyone who has been accepted NOT receive an email? My portal status changed to "Congratulations on acceptance..." but I never received an email.

    Congratulations to everyone who was accepted and best of luck to everyone else!

    Afaik no one has said they've been outright rejected or even waitlisted yet, just accepted or deferred til next meeting. They sent out an actual deferral status to a few people Friday morning but it's only been acceptances since then, which has me hopeful for an acceptance Monday.

    Still, last wave all acceptances got sent out on Friday. Realistically I think no status update probably means another deferral but who knows. If there's still no update by noon Monday I'm gonna call in and ask for some clarity. Fingers crossed y'all.
