    Are OOS'ers using the anything important you would like to tell the Adcom essay about why you would like to return to/practice in Nevada?

    I left it blank and got an II ( from neighboring state with relatively high stats). If you have genuine reasons you could talk about it but don’t force it

    Circus circus is nearby. Heard it's the cheapest hotel on the strip.

    I wouldn’t stay at the Circus Circus because it’s Circus Circus and you need a quiet place to sleep the night before your interview.

    There are a lot of nice Marriotts near the convention center that would be good options, they are less than 15 minutes from campus. (See: Residence Inn Las Vegas Convention Center)

    I had no problems staying here. Pretty quiet honestly because most people are out. There are new buildings called the manor outside of the main Circus Circus building

    Anyone else having trouble answering some of these interview questions? For some questions, I legitimately cannot think of a situation for it. At least not honestly, and I presume they want us to be honest.

    Have not had it yet, but last year's thread consistently said it is very laid back. May very well be different this year. And at least we have all the possible questions, though I'm having trouble answering some of them.

    The interview is super laid back, each interviewer asks you ~10 of the questions along with the basic interview questions about yourself. For questions I didn't have an exact answer too I thought of situations that were similar and would say: "I haven't encountered this exact situation but something similar that happened was...."

    Does anyone know if medical students get a chance to rotate or get involved with the Ackerman Center for Autism and Neurodevelopment?

    Yes. Several students are doing their community service at the Ackerman Center during the first phase of the curriculum. Rotations are offered as electives during the third phase of the curriculum.

    Anyone know if the soft-rejects or hard rejects? Been complete for a while now but still haven't heard anything while others who submitted around me heard back the next week. Wondering if it's safe to assume I've been rejected so I can move on

    As someone who's been through the cycle once before, the wisest thing you can do is that very last sentence you just said: assume you've been rejected and move on. Trust me dude just give it your all with those Secondaries and then never look back.

    Can anyone comment on the interview experience. It looks like MMI but the schedule says 2 interview blocks. Is that with 2 individuals or 2 different periods going through different MMI stations?

    It is not MMI. As you said, just two interview blocks, each with a single interviewer.

    Okay awesome. The questions led me to believe it was MMI, but the schedule led me to believe it was the two block interview type.

    Does anyone know what percentage of applicants get the secondary? Or how heavy the screening process is to get the secondary?

    Once a month I think. They said at the interview that they won't send any out until November 30th, but sometimes they start calling people before then anyways.

    At present, we've received approximately 1800 applications for 60 seats in the class. We've sent out around 600 secondaries and will interview 300 applicants by the time we've completed this cycle. Hope that gives you some information that is helpful.
