    Thank you everyone!!

    Question for those who interviewed: opinions of the MMI? Was it as high stress as some people make it out to be or did you enjoy the overall experience?

    They said basically what I expected, they aren't sending the emails every 2 weeks as promised, and I just have to be patient.

    Personally I feel like the MMIs were a little high stress at the beginning just because of the anticipation of the unknown. By the time you're halfway thru the stations, you relax into it and enjoy the process a lot more. You may even find them fun by the end of it. Nice thing is that you are not alone; your fellow interviewees the day of are right beside you in the hallway. Going thru the MMI experience together was the best bonding experience, at least I thought, throughout the day.

    I agree with @bobbitybob. They're going to tell you over and over again how much fun it is, and to be fair it kinda was. Go on YouTube and research/practice some possible scenarios though. It's hard to tell how it went afterwards because there's technically "no right answers" but there's definitely wrong answers lol

    Does anyone who interviewed have any advice on sending thank you? Did you do it as email, in the portal, or handwritten?

    Also, who did you address it to? Brenda or adcom?

    Thanks!!

    Does anyone know if we can still view our supplementary app? I tried to go back into the system and there does not seem to be a way to access it.

    Hi! It's not very intuitive, and there may be a better way to access the secondary app, but you can do this after logging on:

    Self Service -> Student Center -> Additional Attachments (it's next to the "My Applications" box). On this page, you'll probably have to click the arrow in the top left to scroll through the tabs until to you get to "Questions" which is where those paragraphs you wrote would be.

    for those who interviewed, when was your day complete? the email said 2 pm but the website said 5 pm...my flight back leaves at 4 so if the day ends at 5, what did you guys do from 3-5?

    serenity, what airport are you using? After the official activities, there was an informal time to meet and speak with current students and other applicants.

    Are you interviewing on a Saturday? I think the schedule is different on Saturdays and end at 2pm (unless I'm thinking of a different school...). My day ended right around 4:30pm. We only got to the MMIs around 3 as mine happened to be the last group to go. I think you can leave as soon as your MMI is done but that could be relatively late.

    I'm in the same boat. People after us have definitely heard back but I guess we're still in the running.

    Serenity, you should be fine on your timing. You may want to let the staff know about your flight time when you check in just in case they switch things around for the schedule that day.

    Accepted yesterday!!! Two application cycles and FINALLY ONE acceptance.

    To anyone without an acceptance or on their second cycle, please don’t lose hope. Either now or in the future, you WILL go to medical school and be the doctor you’ve dreamed of being. This isn’t a race, and you deserve it just like everyone else. After my first cycle, it took a while to cope with the fact that I’d just spent a year of my life in anxious anticipation, and that I’d have to do it again. But just keep going on with the rest of your life and be happy. Your time will come!!

    I just got a financial aid fact sheet email that says “congrats on your acceptance to UMass,” but I haven’t gotten an acceptance email or call. Has this happened to anyone else?
