    Also OOS (accepted in January) and checked my profile after seeing your post. I have the same things noted on the current archive application.
    However, I can still log into my applicant portal. The portal does not have any assigned campus. I am not so confident that my campus placement has been made yet since it's not reflected in the portal. Did not receive the acceptance mail either.

    Looking at last year's thread, it was around late March and early April. No definite information from admissions this year though.

    At my interview I believe that they said second look is tentatively scheduled for the last weekend in March, although not 100% positive.

    Does admissions give us a definitive answer as to whether we are in-state or out-of-state for tuition purposes? I'm in a unique situation where I think I'm in-state and applied as such but I'm not sure if they will think so. Does anyone know when they give a definitive answer to that?

    Hey all, I'm curious, does UIC have a preference for those who attended UIC for undergrad?

    Hey guys, does anyone know if UIC, or medical schools in general, look at your previous year's application - secondary essays and personal statements, in particular - when reviewing your current application?

    I think we’ll hear back on Friday or the following Monday. Ms. Amiri informed me that after Feb. 7th, the next adcom meeting is on 3/21 with second look being on 3/29. She also said that if your file is not reviewed in the 2/7 meeting, it’ll be pushed to the 3/21 meeting. But they’re going to try to review everyone that has interviewed and waiting to hear back on the 2/7 meeting

    I went there for undergrad! If they do, they hide it well :lol:

    I submitted my secondary fairly early and didn't get an interview till Dec and I'm still waiting to hear back. But I'm thankful I've made it this far! And trying to keep some hope at this point

    When you say they are going to try and review everyone, does that include people who were deferred?

    I know this has been a point of controversy on this sub, but is there a usual time frame on post-interview decisions?

    Ugh. I Interviewed in SEPTEMBER and still have not gotten any decision (not even an official defferal).

    The emotional/mental drain of waiting to find out where I will spend the next 4 years of my life has been crushing.

    I cannot help but feel incredibly angry/sad at how admissions has handled this. My SO asks me every few days if the portal has updated and I have to tell them that I still don't know if/where to they will be expected to uproot their life/career in approximately six months so that I can take out over a quarter of a million dollars in loans.

    It just feels like admissions has been so flippant with our lives. :(

    It’s even worse when schools tell you you’ll hear back by a certain date or time frame and completely ignore that estimate by months. I suppose us applicants are at the mercy of adcoms until you start getting As

    Hi all - I had a few questions regarding the different campuses?
    1) Do they all have the same curriculum (pre-clinical courses, clerkships, etc)
    2) What are the main differences between the Peoria and the Rockford campuses? I am not really familiar with either of those two locations, as my interview was in the Chicago campus.

    Yes, they do all have the same curriculum. They all take the same tests on the same day at each campus.

    As far as differences between Rockford and Peoria, I know that the rural medicine track is only offered in Rockford. Also, I know that Peoria has a state-of-the-art facility that you'd get to train at if placed there. Beyond that, I don't believe there aren't a ton of huge differences. They are cities of about the same size and have similar number and quality of healthcare systems. The number of students placed at Rockford and Peoria is the same.

    Source: am from Rockford and interviewed in Rockford.

    Yes, they did. But I haven't noticed any change on my portal, yet.

    Based on previous acceptance days this cycle, they have all come out after 3 PM on the portal, with one mass acceptance email at the end of the day.

    I was told by the office of admissions that the next adcom meeting would be 2/14 with decisions released on 2/15! Not positive that they met yesterday.

    I was told adcom meeting was 2/7... getting frustrated with all these discrepancies throughout this cycle.
