    i recently spoke with one of my advisors (who sits on adcom at a top 10 med school) and essentially asked him the exact question re: when i should expect to hear back and what that means...his exact words were "i think that means a lot of schools are overwhelmed...i know for a fact that at [our school] there are still many applications we haven't gone through yet" FWIW - i think it is worth waiting for a bit longer to see what will happen! have faith in yourself!

    Are there IS people that were complete after early-August that still haven't heard back? I am slightly getting concerned at the lack of love from UNC as an IS applicant with above average stats (for the IS group). Obviously no interview is "guaranteed" but had high hopes for this one!

    Are you guys getting email responses from admissions? I haven't received a single response to the 3 emails I sent out 3 weeks ago, 2 weeks ago, and 1 week ago respectively...

    @bigal123
    What were these emails about? Just the status of your secondary application?
    From my understanding, those are generally discouraged and I wouldn't be surprised by a lack of response.

    From what I remember, UNC doesn't accept application updates. I know that updates is not the same as issues, but maybe they think it is? Have you tried calling?

    Does anybody know if it is considered frowned upon to underload your second semester senior year? I would still be considered a full-time student, but would be enrolled in less than 12 credit hours.

    I don't know if this came up already but I'm curious to know how many interviews UNC does on interview day? Is it still two interviews plus those stations? And are interviewers still told in advance who their interviewer will be?

    When you guys check your status does it just say secondary fee received?

    It's one traditional interview plus 5 MMI stations. You don't know who your interviewer is beforehand, but they will have read your application prior. At least that's how mine was.

    Thank you! Any tips on prepping for this? How long did it last? Do they give a tour through he whole UNC campus or just the medical facilities?

    They actually don't give an official tour at all, but they show a couple of videos about student life and the campus. You'll get to see two of the medical school buildings during your interview day. I'm sure the student admissions ambassadors would be willing to take a quick walk around with you after the day is over.

    I would say a moderate amount of walking. Definitely not a lot since you don't have an official tour. I don't really have any prep advice as I feel as though my prep didn't really help. Just go in there and don't be rude or obnoxious.

    Since UNC said the earliest anyone would hear back post-interview will be December, do you think most that interviewed before December will hear back then?

    I called and asked admissions the same question, and they told me everyone interviewing before December will hear back in December... not sure if that's actually the case or if I misunderstood if someone else wants to call and ask!

    That's what I heard too but I wonder why they aren't doing a round of decisions in November like usual.

    I asked. Basically, they want to look at the class holistically (i.e. what will each prospective student bring to the class?). So if they wait, they can get a better idea of how that might look, rather than sending a round of acceptances each time and morphing the class into what they want/are looking for later.

    Acceptance notice in December is what was stated in the material given at the interview.
    From the Admissions Process Timeline: "November-December: We will begin releasing offers of acceptance in December, and subsequently in February, March and April. We will also send unsuccessful notifications at those times. Please be patient, we will do our best to update you on your status as soon as possible."

    Did everyone who has interviewed receive a financial aid email?

    Would they send those to everyone or accepted interviewees only?

    Nope, but maybe that's because I interviewed towards the end of Oct and added them to my FAFSA already

    I have no idea. I haven't read any conversations about this in previous threads, so I was just wondering the significance (if any) of it. Just wondering!

    I also got the financial aid email, before I did the fafsa. But I don’t think that means anything lol

    I put UNC on my FAFSA 10/01... which is why I was wondering if it was a mass email! Thank you!

    I got the email and then did my fafsa the day after. I figured I should go ahead and do it.

    Any MSTP people receive the CASPer email today? It made it sound like MSTP invites had started going out

    I did, too. The email was strangely worded, but in the email they sent after submitting your secondary "UNC School of Medicine Supplemental Process Information", under Scheduling Interviews, they say "We will be reviewing applications near the end of November. Candidates selected for interviews will be notified by email before the December holiday season." So I think they're sending this to give us a "head start" from when they begin reviewing apps at the end of the month.

    Does anyone know what time the Monday interviews usually finish up? Trying to book flights and can't seem to find much about the time schedule for the day.
