Stats in my signature
Accepted today, regular MD! Interview on 10/2, OOS,
Were you accepted via phone call or email?
II this morning! In-state, submitted 8/13 and complete 8/21. It was scheduled for early January.
Congrats . Lizzy?
Thank you! LM ~75
Accepted on Monday after receiving 'still under consideration' email on 10/17 and interviewing on 10/02.
OOS but went to school in Boston and have been here for 5 years. After I got the email on 10/17, I wrote a letter of interest and just honestly conveyed how much I loved the school on my interview day and wanted to be here. Didn't sugar coat it, just gave the app updates I had and expressed my strong and sincere interest. For anyone else who really loved this school and got that same email, there's still hope - keep the faith and don't be afraid to let them know.
Not usually a big forum guy, but I'm on my second cycle and I know from experience that a lot of people read these when they're looking for answers during this crazy process. Hope it helps someone!
hey! From reading the 2017-2018 thread, it seems like "under consideration" actually means that they have not presented your case for deliberations yet, and when they present it they make a decision of acceptance/rejection/waitlist. Idk though this could just be a bunch of applicants talking in circles!
Accepted today! Interviewed on 9/13 and received the still under consideration email on 10/17. Technically OOS resident but grew up in MA, family is still there, and qualify for IS tuition. Super excited!
Hey, thanks for looking into that! That wasn’t my understanding from how they described it in their presentation on interview day but I may have misunderstood. Either way, i don’t think you can call it a “good” thing. At best it is totally neutral, in the sense that they just haven’t discussed your app at the meeting at all. Definitely better than a rejection!
Not yet! Have you received an "under consideration" email? Because I haven't. I think we will hear back soon though because people who interviewed on 10/02 are getting acceptances!
Anyone who interviewed on 10/10 get a response?
Looks like the 10/24 group probably won’t be hearing back till after thanksgiving
Not yet! Haven't received the "under consideration" email either.
Interviewing tomorrow, any tips/advice?
Biggest advice would be to just not stress too much. Just relax, be yourself, and answer honestly and completely. You won't believe me until after you interview, but they're actually kinda fun.
Considering many from the 8/20 group haven't heard anything I'd say it will be long after Thanksgiving
You haven't heard anything from 8/20 at all? Not even a "still under consideration" type thing? They said to reach out if you do not hear from them to check the status so I would do that. It's been almost 3 months!
I did get an under consideration e-mail back in September! That seems so long ago now hahaha
Just got a "still under active consideration" email. Anyone else from 10/24 get that? Or from that date get an acceptance/rejection?
got rejection email just now from 10/25 interview. You still have a shot, good luck!
I also got this. Interviewed on the same day.
Accepted into the MD program via email, II 10/25. LM 70. OOS ORM. Super stoked! Heard back on the 9th in the afternoon but couldn’t believe it
+2 for under active consideration
Anything from those on 10/10? Even an active consideration?
Has anyone who interviewed for PURCH heard back?
Anyone who interviewed here remember how to send thank you note in? Is it thru the portal or emailing admissions directly?
Interviewed for PURCH end of October and got accepted 11/9
If I'm not mistaken you should direct it to room S-1-300. To Admissions.
Oh and I just remembered. Direct it to Brenda, whose room is s-1-300.
General question and I’m not sure where to post it... but since I’m a MA resident and praying for umass since I’m sitting on ZERO interviews, figured I’d ask it here. When do all schools typically stop sending interview invites? Does it vary from school to school? Just wondering when I should start really considering my plan B as a reality
I looked at the UMass thread from last cycle and the last II was received in mid Feb
Also, complete date please?
In-state, 67 LM
Completed July 8th
Thanks! Best of luck with your interview!
MSTP II today. Complete first week of September. LM: 76. OOS.
I interviewed the first day and haven't heard anything since the under review email in September. Is it appropriate to call inquiring about what's going on/ if no email in months means an R?
