    Thank you!! I did not send updates because I had nothing to send in such a short time. It is just based on your position on the one and only list, but I guess updates would help improve your overall score.

    HI, pretty random but interviewing for MD/MPH on 02/11 and 02/12 and I'd love to explore Miami/the Everglades beforehand, so if anyone is interviewing around then and wants to spend 02/08 and 02/09 exploring too, feel free to PM me! :)

    Is there a difference between being scored and being reviewed?

    Can anyone who has received the mail acceptance packet yet help me out? I am away on holiday for a few weeks, and so I won't get mine till early next year. Is there any information in there that needs to be attended to quickly like a 2-week deposit deadline, etc.? Thank you!

    Not that I really care at this point, but I submitted everything in July and didn't even move past the "under review" phase. Anybody in a similar situation? I feel like I just wasted money applying here.

    @anyone who has been accepted- how long did it take to receive the packet in the mail? I wrote back after I received my acceptance email and got confirmation that it would be added to my file. But my status on the portal hasn't changed. I want to make sure that I put down my deposit in time if there is one. At other schools I know they will give away your spot if you dont

    I just received the acceptance letter in the mail and some vague instructions on final transcripts but I was told that they will be sending pre-matriculation steps around March.

    I have been scored for two months now and submitted an update in October. I have yet to here anything new from them. Is it worth sending a LOI? Miami is definitely one of my top choices. I'm IS, Non-trad with a Lizzie M ~70-71.

    Should I update them about a new clinical job I've been doing since October? Do you think it would make a difference in my chances of getting interviewed?

    yup it's based on stan. I've been stanning miller but they won't even score my app :/. This school doesn't seem too friendly to applicants with IAs.

    Do they reject pre interview or wait until the end of cycle?

    I'm tempted to say no, they wait until the end of the cycle. I'm basing this interpretation on the fact that their whole interview and acceptance process is based on score.

    As you know, pre-II your application is scored, and at pre-set intervals they invite ~15-20 of the top scores remaining to schedule an interview. After interview, your application is re-scored and placed on a new list of everyone who has interviewed. At pre-set intervals they accept ~15-20 of the highest scorers off the post-interview list. There is no "waitlist", only a list ranked by your post-interview score.

    I think the only pre-II R would be if you weren't invited to complete a secondary.

    Roughly how many interviewees have been accepted so far after being placed on the alternate list? Curious how much movement is going to happen after 4/30 compared to during the active interview cycle.

    Just got reviewed after a late July submission...approximately how long does it take to hear back after being reviewed? And is there any hope for an interview still now that it's January?
