    They have an admissions tracker on their website that tells you how many IIs have been sent already, usually gets updated on Michigan Mondays after their twitter announcement

    Their official MD Admissions tracker shows 7,738 apps, 394 IIs and 107 admissions offers, although they usually update this every Monday night like lex515 said. The number of interview invites seems to vary pretty drastically between years though, if you look at their class statistics they interviewed 527 for the incoming class of 2017 but only 445 for the incoming class of 2018, with a 5-year average (2014-2018) of 534 per year. I guess that means there could be anywhere from ~50 to ~140 IIs left to be sent out?

    How did you know nothing happened, through the admission tracker? I thought sometime they update it a day later.

    I believe the 534 figure includes MSTP unfortunately

    They could just be close to done with interviews so they might just be waiting to see how many people accept the spots!

    I guess that I don't know how to read the tracker any more, it was 394 interviewed scheduled this morning, now its 418. I always thought the 418 would be interview invite. Now seems like we have at least 418 interview invite sent out and maybe more, because someone got invite and have not schedule interview yet. Am I reading it right now? Thank you!

    Normally the tracker increases each week with the number of interview invites that had been sent out that Monday, and so far the numbers have matched up most of the time (so it should have gone to 399). However, there have occasionally been jumps or skips which I think is most likely due to a periodic update to include the MSTP (MD/PhD) interviews. From what I understand, the twitter account only announces MD-only interview invites.

    This is just speculation but I think they are still going to send out a good amount of IS interviews. Nobody that I know IS has received an II here yet. Also, keep in mind that they over-accepted two cycles ago. I think that last year's IIs were much lower than usual because they gave money to a chunk of people from the previous cycle to defer because they had overextended acceptances. I heard this from a current student there.

    I agree that a good number of IIs are still waiting to be sent out, most of which are likely in state. They do begin to slow down toward the end of the cycle, but previous years show interview invites still being sent out through January. For example, last year they sent out small batches of IIs all the way until January 29th.

    Interesting to know about the reason for the big decrease in last year's IIs. Thanks for the insight!

    Well, I personally know about 12 IS Michigan grads who recieved IIs , so I am starting to give up hope. I feel like they are aiming for around 450-470 invites. Keep it around that 5.5%

    That could be. If we consider their 5-year average of 538 II/year and then subtract ~50 for the MSTP invites (the MD/PhD admissions website states that they interview approx. 50/year), that leaves ~488 MD-only IIs per year average. However, the current number on the tracker (418 to date) might include many MSTP invites. As MedLKid mentioned, the twitter account has only announced ~360 so far. So there's a chance we still have 100+ MD interviews left to be scheduled. Just staying optimistic. haha

    I don't remember how long it took me, but more than a few weeks. Admissions will send you a weekly email asking you to complete it. I think it gives a deadline - something like "if you don't do it by x time, your interview date may be given away." That said, I don't know how serious they are about it. Use the Michigan HIPAA, it's the easiest.

    If you read this thread from before - I had some comments on the "fun fact." I feel a little more justified now. When you interview, your picture will be on just about every scrolling TV in the hospital with your fun fact. The ones on my day ranged from legit things like "speaks 5 languages" to less serious like "can use a bostaff." I'm a proponent of the less serious ones.

    Currently preparing for an upcoming interview and struggling to know how to prepare for current events/questions not about myself/my application. Any tips anyone can offer?

    Most of my questions were about my application. My advice:
    Read Medscape or some other news aggregator to get a feel for what's going on in medicine, and pay attention to medical stories on other outlets (not the sensational ones)

    Have some great questions prepared for your faculty interviewer and student interviewer; either about the school/program or about medicine in general. I blanked on these by the last one, and ran out of questions. Expect that portion to be a solid 5-10 minutes.

    Two weeks ago someone posted that the dates the had in terms of choice for II was December 7 and 14. After that Michigan only has two II dates, one in January and one in February. They see anywhere between 25-35 people per interview so I figured my chances are about nill now

    Based on the twitter post, Michigan sent out 380 II till now this year. I believe they send out around 450 past years, I am hoping that they would send out more.

    Just a heads up y'all. I know they frontload their OOS interviews so people don't have to fly in during the snowy months. Interviews from this point will probably be majority IS applicants :(

    January, it seems from the 2017-18 thread. I'm OOS and already have considered this a rejection after being complete late July. No longer rooting for Harbaugh and the wolverines.

    From the admissions website it looks like the remaining interview days are: Nov 16, Nov 30, Dec 7, Dec 14, Jan 18, Feb 1. Anyone know what dates they’re scheduling at this point? I’m not IS, but still trying to hold on to some hope.

    I think they schedule about a month out (at least based on when I received mine and when dates were available), so probably the last of the Dec. 14th invites went out yesterday and the remainder of the invites will be for Jan and Feb.

    Who else from the October interviews was really hoping they were going to release decisions a day early like last year?

    Do they also do midnight releases for second wave decisions? Couldn’t tell from last year’s thread.

    I checked the time stamps on last year's acceptances. People were posting between noon and 1pm EST. That said, it was the day before so I don't know how accurate of predictor last year will be.
