Where in the building?
Just walk in security will tell you where to go
Are they sending out offers today?
I think so
Does anyone know when decisions go out today? Like what time do they call?
I thought at 5:00pm?
Well, it's the end of the business day. Did anyone hear anything?
Oh what a surprise! Still havent been scored. Complete early August
No calls, no emails, no letters. That was the quietest passing of 5/6 PM in my household.
I got a call today around 5:45pm (EST)
Got the call yesterday around 5:40 pm as well, so blessed and excited!
When did you both interview? At my day they said we wouldn't hear until January but I've seen a short turn around time on here
Congrats on the acceptance!! I loved the schoool hopefully we will be classmates
Just got the alternate list email, and they also told us we wouldn't hear until January. Feeling a little bummed but at least it was a really fast turnaround time.
Congrats to everyone accepted yesterday
Thanks. I interviewed in mid-November, excellent turn around time!
On your interview day, did they tell you that you'd hear back on November 28th? Or did they say it was more likely going to be the December date? (Just trying to gauge if they're ahead of schedule ) thanks!
Are interview invites always sent out in evenings? What time?
I was actually told it would be early January.
Oooooh there's hope for the rest of us!!!! Or maybe you're just exceptional Congrats and Thank you!
Got the alternate list email as well. Does anyone have a clue how many candidates will accumulate to be on this list? And congrats to those that got accepted.
If any given interview day has around ~30 interviewees and they accept the top 20 people from their list every time they meet that means there is at least a net gain of 10 people on the waiting list. However, the committee doesn't meet after every interview session so the net gain is probably higher (I'm pretty sure that's how they do it but someone please correct me if I'm wrong! I was trying to remember the amount of people at my interview but it was a few months ago so my memory is failing me!)
I just got lucky, nothing exceptional. Keep that hope alive and good luck to everyone waiting!
If i remember correctly they said at my interview day that last year had 561 interviewed and 322 accepted for a final enrollment of ~200 and no one really received any outright rejections. All we know from that is that ~120 got moved off the waitlist, although I dont know if that is continuous throughout the cycle or just a big chunk sent out at the end around april
The waitlist movement is definitely continuous! I remember the Dean saying that it's not uncommon to be waitlisted and then a week later to be accepted (at least earlier on in the cycle). Tbh I don't really even think it's a "waitlist", but just a masterlist of all interviewees ranked by their scoring system. I think that is why the dean emphasizes the importance of keeping the school updated after the interview...because an update/LOI could potentially raise your score above the threshold for acceptance.
Hi everyone, I just received an II and was sent an e-mail to request interview dates. They asked me to choose 4 dates and I did so. Do we get a follow up e-mail as to which date that we are interviewing? Because as of now, I just have the four dates that I ranked when I would like to interview.
You'll receive a follow-up email in 1 day with your interview date. I got my first choice of interview date.

II. Complete mid-July.
Congrats? Mind sharing stats?
PSA: Send updates if you haven’t yet !!!
II yesterday (LM ~69, IS, complete July) but they literally asked if I was still interested first, then three hours later after I responded with an update they sent me the II.
Hope to give some hope to those out there with LM <70 and complete early. It’s not over yet!!
Edit: this is not to say that sending random updates will help your chances. I sent a “worthy” update (new publication) after they informed me I was being considered for an interview. The purpose of this post was to encourage others to go ahead and send an update if you feel like it is significant to your application, because they are looking for continued interest. Hope that clears things up!! Good luck everyone!
has anyone heard back about student hosting? i interview in two weeks
I appreciate your positivity in this time of stress and anxiety, but just to be very clear for the sake of not getting other applicants' hopes up, the email that asks if you're still interested actually states that the admissions committee has "completed their review you your application and would like to invite you for an interview." They just want to know if you would like to accept the interview and that you are still interested. I just responded with by saying yes in a few words and very shortly after I received the formal interview offer. Ultimately, they invited you and THEN you sent the update. It was a yes or no question, there was no need for you to send the update.
For applicants still waiting, send worthy updates if you have them, but don't just send a random update and then expect a II. I still believe that the scoring system at UM is what determines who gets the interview. Speaking as a re-applicant, keep your hopes high but your expectations low. Good luck everyone.
Thanks for clearing that up
How did you submit updates? Also, do they accept them pre-II?
Had my interview last Friday November 30th and I think it went really well.
I had very positive vibes during this "first look" and my interviewer was such a sweet and nice lady and hopefully I crushed it, but you never know. I didn't even know what
LizzyM score was until today but I guess mine is 67.40 if anyone cares.
anyone else complete end of august and not scored yet?
You are absolutely correct! I will edit my original post to convey that message. I apologize if I mislead anyone. I sent them a “worthy” update along with continued interest.
Do you mind sharing when you were complete?
II today! Complete early September
How many people do they send II’s to per week? Month? I’d imagine it’s just 650 II’s divided by 6 months (Sep-Feb). Someone correct me if I’m wrong.
Does your status say scored? When were you scored?
No it says my app has been reviewed and I have been selected for an interview. I never saw it say “scored”
Is it just one faculty interview like last year or did this change?
Just one faculty interview. If I remember right at least 60 percent interviewed are accepted.
The interview mileage may vary. Some of my classmates had tough ones, but mine was really just a conversation.

They told us on Friday that the earliest we would hear is January, but if I get some good news from them on the next acceptance day I will die of happiness. I loved this school. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.
Also if anyone is going to interview in the future try out Enriqueta's for lunch it was v. tasty.
Also if you're driving to campus leave a few minutes earlier than you think you need to it was pretty difficult to find where to park and then where to go
Just one person. Completely open file. My guy was great very friendly. He had read the whole thing but still asked some questions that he could have easily found in the secondary so I think they just want to make sure you're legit and not lying about any of your experiences. (IE he asked me to list all of my shadowing experiences even though we all have listed those on primary and secondary)
Is Miami receptive to application updates? If so how do we go about them? Email? There's no portal link that I can find.
