    I think everyone gets that once their app is "complete"

    Did anyone else get an email thanking them for interviewing, and that they looked over your application and a final decision has not been made but you're still under active consideration? It was confusing

    I've been backed up with many secondaries, is it worth submitting my secondary here if I've had it for about 5 weeks? OOS LM 72

    Hey guys,

    Do you think a 505 MCAT is too low for this school? I am in state. I have a MS too. And do they do silent rejections?

    It depends on what the rest of your application looks like. UMass does a thorough review of every applicant and does not focus on a single number. As the cycle goes on, people here will be complaining about how long it takes to get a decision, but in my opinion they do a fantastic job at assembling a class.

    Does anyone have any idea how often UMMS sends out interview invites? I am trying to get a sense of whether they get sent out weekly/rolling/biweekly...etc...

    Hi pup, I don't believe they do silent rejections. I have found UMMS to have a very professional and engaged admissions department, and it is my opinion that silent rejections are anything but professional.

    Just got an II today! Complete date is 7/16 and LM is 73.2. Not URM or any disadvantaged status.

    Anyone know how long after the interview they tell you your result (accepted, rejected or waitlist)? I tried to find that online but no luck.

    Did anyone else receive an additonal email from the associate dean of admissions with his contact info? Just trying to gauge if that's a normal thing they send to everyone.

    AC Hotel Worcester is very nice and modern. It's also attached to a restaurant if you want a quick bite.

    Does anyone have any insight as to what the prospects are for an acceptance following the "your application remains under active consideration" email? I interviewed middle of September and just got that email.
