    So how do you know you're admitted?

    I can maybe shed some light on why offers and emails can come at different times. The UMich admissions office lets current medical students call/FaceTime accepted applicants who are personal friends of theirs to tell them the good news. Then, at some point afterwards, the emails go out to everyone who was accepted, whether they got a call or not. I can't speak to when emails will go out, though last round of acceptances went out around midnight. This was the earliest that acceptances could go out because of the 10/15 mandate, so this may or may not be indicative of future timing. Best of luck everyone!

    I’ve heard nothing at 12:18am CT so I’m guessing this is a bad thing?

    I don’t think so. Judging by the lack of responses thus far, I’m assuming Michigan isn’t sending admissions decisions until later in the day.

    So does not everyone get phone calls? Did people who got phone calls get them from individuals they knew?

    Yeah they come from people who'd already have our contact info, not the admissions office

    I got a call from a good friend who is a student there, not the admissions office directly. If you don’t know anyone, I don’t think you get a call.

    IN! Received the email this morning!

    Michigan is awesome, and holistic in its approach to medicine and candidates. I love the fact that the school is friendly to career changers.

    To those who didn't receive good news: keep your head up. I'm sure that Michigan had to make some very tough choices, and that with such a competitive applicant pool, it becomes somewhat of a crapshoot at times. The fact that you made it this far means you bring something special to the table.

    Just watched some of the White Coat Ceremony from last year. Dean Gay: "We are Michigan, we will not compare ourselves to others. Either join us or follow us, for we have work to do." Man, that guy is awesome.

    I feel the exact same way. I’m miraculously in (still hasn’t sunk in yet) but seriously everyone I interviewed with was amazing. I was so so so impressed and I have definitely gotten extremely lucky

    I don't know the exact number, but they accept about 350 and interview about 450. Very rough numbers.

    UMich's "5-Year Admissions Snapshot", which is available on the MD Admissions website, states an average of 534 interviews per year (389 OOS, 145 IS), and 380 admissions offers per year (273 OOS, 107 IS). I guess this comes out to about a ~71% post-interview acceptance rate. However, I'm pretty sure these numbers include approximately 50 MSTP (MD/PhD) interviews and 10-12 MSTP acceptances, which would skew the rates by a few %.

    EDIT: Decided to update with MSTP numbers subtracted (484 interview, 369 admissions offers), this gives an MD-only post-interview acceptance rate of ~76%.

    To MSTP people who have already interviewed, did they mention their decision timelines?

    To those who have/had an II, how did you submit the photo release? I uploaded a photo but I received an email saying that I have yet to complete the release. I don't see a prompt anywhere on the secondary, it just says that by uploading I have automatically agreed to release? Thanks in advance!

    They gave us an “early to mid December” on my interview date, but could be anytime between Dec and March.

    Another question for those who got an II.. I totally did not realize we had a complete the MIC. I didn't even notice the link upon first receiving my interview confirmation email--I thought this just entailed the HIPAA and photo upload. I completed it today but my interview is in a little less than 3 weeks and the MIC material should have been completed at least 4 weeks before my interview. Does anyone know if this will alter my appointment/chances at all? I emailed the director but she is out due to the holiday. Very nervous this will ruin my chances. Thank you in advance!

    I am confident it will not affect your chances. Go in there with confidence and be yourself. Think of questions for your interviewers is my best advice for prep.

    I just got my interview yesterday for 12/14 (Which I'm guessing is your day). I just turned mine in last night. I thought about calling the admissions office to let them know, but didn't know if it was urgent enough.

    I have an interview for 12/14 as well. I got a second email from admissions saying that it was fine if we submitted MIC by 11/26. Maybe check your spam folder for that, as you should have gotten a similar email. Either way, I think you're all good :)

    Prep like you would for any MMI. Know your app for the traditional interviews as if you get a student they tend to be very thorough (in a positive way!). It’s a fun day.

    Did you think it was a hard interview day? Do you think reading all those WashU bioethics pages would help? Thanks for the response!

    Nah, MMIs are what they are. Some stations are tougher than others but you dont need any specific knowledge to answer the prompts.

    I thought the book “The Ultimate Guide to Multiple Mini Interview” was helpful with understanding how to tackle MMIs in general. Also if you’ve never had a medical ethics class WashU is a great way to familiarize yourself, especially when it comes to dealing with difficult patients and families, end of life care, patient autonomy, etc... Also I agree with everyone else who says to know your application, especially your personal statement. Also be yourself, you received the interview because you are what the school is looking for.

    Thank you! I've read an MMI book before and have had MMIs at the interviews I've been on but was worried they might be harder at a super top school like UMich. Did anyone notice extensive questions on research you had done? Or is it more they are trying to get to know you as a person?

    Does UMich really like thank you notes? I was under the impression that the interviewers submitted our evaluation immediately after and would get our thank you notes delayed anyway. Also- email vs card?

    I sent physical cards. We got an email after telling us to send the thank you notes to our long form interviewers to the admissions office and they would be forwarded. So I guess they do like them. Not idea if they have an effect on acceptance or not though.
