    Thanks. Do you remember any of the details? I know they discussed some of it in depth. Maybe they’ll at least have it up by the second look weekend.

    Any word on Facebook groups?

    I'm a current student with the old curriculum (and not involved in admissions/curriculum design) so I don't really know any more details, sorry!

    I got scored a week ago. I have quite a few II’s but have been eagerly awaiting UM since the day I submitted in July.

    I’ll be hoping till the end I guess.

    Might be a dumb question but, what does your portal say? How do you know if you’re scored or not?

    Dear Miller,
    I wrote you but you still ain't scorin',
    I left my email, primary and that long ass secondary at the bottom,
    I sent two update letters this autumn, you must not-a got 'em,
    There was probably an issue at the admissions office or somethin'....
    Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot 'em
    But anyways, **** it, what's been up? Man how's your curriculum?
    My manuscript's getting published too, I'm 'bout to be an author
    If I write another, guess what I'm a call her?
    I'ma name it Miami
    I read about your creepy porn student too I'm sorry
    I had a classmate do something similar over some bitch who didn't want him
    I know you probably hear this everyday, but I'm your biggest fan
    I even got the turnover chain, I've been following since before Sean Taylor, fam,
    I got a room full of your posters and your pictures man
    I like the the hire of Dr. Ford too, that **** was fat
    Anyways, I hope you get this man, hit me back,
    Just to interview, truly yours, your biggest fan
    This is WESLEY

    It’ll tell you that your app has been reviewed in the app portal.

    Woah, when I interviewed here they said the earliest I'd hear back is mid-January. My portal now says that my "final Admissions Committee decision will be available shortly." I think this means I'll hear back on the next decision date right?

    I just checked and mine says that too!!!! Do you think that means acceptances?? Oh dear, now I'm speculating! I thought they didn't reject, just defer, so I'm hoping that a "final decision" has to mean acceptance!

    Same!! Interviewed early Dec so this would be a really quick turnaround. But I think we’ll probably hear something soon since the portal does say to contact them if we don’t hear news in the next 7 days.

    I interviewed mid-November and was told I'd hear back Dec 19, but my portal changed to say that status the week of Nov 26 and I was accepted on the Nov 28 decision day. So yes, you should hear on Wednesday!! Good luck!

    Sad. I interviewed 11/30 and this is what mine says
    "Your applications and interview report will be reviewed a final time by the Admissions Committee at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

    Decisions are usually made within 4-6 weeks of the interview. You will be notified by cell phone, e-mail and/or standard mail."

    Well it was nice knowing ya boys. I think I'm done for

    I believe you're still in the queue, and hopefully you'll get skimmed off the top for the sweet acceptance in one of the next review days. My interview isn't until late Feb lol so let's not spend the precious moments before med school worrying :)

    Yeah like the one poster said above I don't think having the decision message = acceptance. It mean some of us are definitely hearing back tomorrow, but that doesnt mean it is good news

    This portal update just means your decision is coming up, not necessarily that you will be accepted. You can end up accepted or alternate listed.
    There is absolutely no need to believe you are "done for." Patience my friend, your admissions decision will come eventually and there is always the chance that it will be an acceptance.

    Mine had changed to that as well. Decision came and went without a phone call. The next day, I received an email that I had been placed on the alternate list. So....more waiting for me. For you, I hope you get a good answer on the next decision day (which is when???)

    I have an interview at another med school in Miami and it's over a 4.5-hour drive for me. Does anyone think it's worth sending an ITA email here?

    So I've gotten over my woe-is-me regarding not having the "Decision has been made" and rather having the pending "Your applications and interview report will be reviewed a final time by the Admissions Committee at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine."

    Now I am just trying to understand....is the "review a final time" the standard post interview message? Did you guys have this up until this week at @Pharaoh95 @mrs_peanutbutter1996 ? I didn't think to look until I saw you guys had a status change.

    Anybody have any idea why people who interviewed after me would have a decision first?

    I am at peak neurotic today

    Yes I believe you are right. I had the review a final time after my interview all the way till Monday when it switched to the final decision message. As for why some people are being reviewed before you, I'm not sure. But at interview day they said 45 people have to vote on your app before it's pushed to final committee review, so maybe not everyone has voted or maybe the person who interviewed you didn't write his/her evaluation until later than other interviewers. These are very uneducated guesses, but maybe they can put your mind at ease just a little bit?

    I had the "final review" message until it changed Monday. Honestly unclear why some people are getting decisions but not others. On my interview day, they implied entire interview days are reviewed at once because interviewers are only given a week to submit a report. But obviously doctors are busy so my guesses align with @horsecatdog 's.

    Dude I'm also at peak neurotic today and I know I'm getting a decision this week. All you know is that you most likely aren't finding out until January, but that doesn't mean you won't be accepted. Miami has a really strong post-II acceptance rate (like ~60%), it just is hard because a lot of those people are put on the alternate list initially. Waiting is the worst, but in the retrospect of our careers a few months of waiting is nothing

    Definitely along the lines of my thinking. I was thinking maybe he was just busy or maybe they only had time to review a certain amount...good luck to you all today!

    So I'm confused. Don't you go from has been reviewed to has been scored? Or has been reviewed is the same as scored? There is no other status change from has "been reviewed" aside from after an II?

    I'm sorry. I've just heard different things and could use clarification, thank you!

    If you're really bothered, I would go ahead and call admissions and ask for clarification.

    Congrats!! Did you just get accepted after being placed on the alternate list? I was supposed to hear back today but haven’t heard anything so I’m assuming I’m WL’d.

    Is it possible to only be accepted to the MD/MPH program, and not the regular MD program?

    Yes, I did! It only mentions the MD/MPH program so I assume that’s the only one I have an acceptance with (which I am very grateful for!), and not the regular track too.

    I answered the phone when they called. Always answer your phone on decision day, even if the area code is not a 305 area code.
