    I am def spamming this thread today so sorry but I have a question for any CURRENT students or anyone that remembers the interview day a bit better than me.

    Did they say they charter a jet to Haiti weekly? Or was that just during the earthquake? They talked a lot about global health opportunities but it was so much info I have already forgotten a lot so if you could elaborate I would appreciate it

    Still waiting to head back about II or rejection. If I haven't heard by now about an interview should I assume the worst?

    Hey guys, just to add I do have a minor alcohol IA from freshman year. I cleared all sanctions and nothing like that ever happened again. I heard from others that this school is super unfriendly to IAs. I havent been scored yet. Should I keep hope still?

    I'm pretty sure that was just during the relief effort but in general, we do a lot of work with the Caribbean and some countries in Central/South America. Obviously other places as well but you you'd have to seek out those opportunities.

    They give all the first years lockers, I think you kinda just hold on to it unless they really need them for newer students taking anatomy. I never used mine.

    Hey guys! I got a question for the MD/MPH students...I am pretty positive that I will attend Miller and I wanted to know if there's a facebook group for all of us to connect and to find roommates? Also, what are some housing options other than Brickell? Thanks so much :)

    I don't know if there's a facebook group yet, but at some point there will be one! This year someone set up a roommate search google doc which was really helpful - a lot of people I know live either with people they contacted through that, or with people they met at 2nd look. Besides Brickell, you could live across the river in Downtown, near the medical campus (cheaper, but less to do, not as nice of an area) or out on Miami Beach (gotta have a car). Some people live farther south (coral gables etc) and a few people I know live in Midtown/Overtown. I think those areas cover like 90% of my class, with the largest portion of that being Brickell by far. I think the Brickell ratio tends to decrease after first year

    Thank you so much! Do you know what is the average rent for living in Brickell or near the medical campus?

    I'm interviewing next week for both the MD and MD/MPH programs—can anyone who interviewed for both programs tell me how many interviews you had and on what day your interview(s) took place? The schedule on the Hub looks like it will be one interview that could be on either day, but on my portal, it says this, which makes it look like there will be three...

    "Below are the date(s) that you are scheduled to be interviewed:
    Monday, December 17, 2018 MD Program
    Tuesday, December 18, 2018 MD-MPH Program
    Tuesday, December 18, 2018 MD-MPH Program"

    Thanks in advance!!

    Man thats too bad. Was one of my top choices.

    Why would they not even score us? Bc Im assuming that means they didnt read any of our essays

    Essentially what I gather is your app is ranked by 3 different ppl individually. Each one scores it on a scale that has a cut-off. If by all 3 people, you dont make the cut-off, you essentially dont get scored.

    Hi everyone! So I interviewed yesterday and I'm trying to send a thank you note. I looked on the Hub app and it says if you want to send a thank you note, to send it to the given address. However, this is a physical mailing address. Has everyone done this? Or is there an e-mail address that I'm missing somewhere to send 'thank you's to?

    You can just send it to the general admissions email and they'll attach it to your file.

    Hey guys,

    This probably was answered before, but does this school take updates? Can't find anywhere on the portal link to send anything....

    Thank you!

    i think everyone from mid-november onwards as well as people from september and october on the alternate list. I know my interview date was told we'd hear in January but based off people on this thread I feel I might hear next week

    Yes. I also feel we may hear next week. I was just trying to get a feel for about how many interviews days there have been since last acceptance day. Each interview has 16 people, and every acceptance day they accept 20 students so I just want to see the odds

    At my interview day recently, I believe they said 25 students were accepted each acceptance date.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I keep reading everywhere and the application goes from:

    Submitted (black)--> reviewed (green)--> scored (green?)--> possible II?

    Don't lol.

    I received an II and I was never scored, even though I had been under review for 6+ weeks.

    In general I'm suspecting different screeners at each school may run through different processes. Mayo MN is done interviewing but I haven't been rejected, while others received the rejection. Wonder what the screeners were up to!

    No news is better than an R! Complete since late August and still keeping my fingers crossed. Any success with Pre-II updates?

    Quick question for those who have interviewed: they said they were going to begin with a new curriculum next year. Is that the new curriculum on their website/on the PPT on the flash drive they gave us?

    I thought they were saying the anatomy course would be like 14 weeks or something but it says 8 on the website/PPT.

    Thanks!

    8 is the current curriculum. I don't know all the details on the new curriculum, and I'm not sure that its finalized enough to have on the website so that's probably the current one.
