DM'd; Edit: jk it won't let me, dm me plz
Can you DM me your stats as well?
LizzyM and WARS?
II this afternoon and it feels like I'm dreaming! (complete 7/9, LM ~75) good luck everyone!
Last few weeks of interviews, i.e. January interviews
Um guys sooo I have been looking at several schools' stats on the MSAR, including the curves for GPA and MCAT score (in the acceptance data section) and the curves are not normal curves (for those of you who have taken stats know what I mean). This was making me wonder whether I should take the data for median GPA/MCAT with a grain of salt??? Idk I might just be the only one thinking that...
If you are above the 25th percentile you are competitive for that school. Percentile means the same thing no matter the shape of the distribution
This isn't perfectly true, but I agree that if you're above 25th percentile you have a chance and it makes sense to apply
MSTP II earlier today! Complete late July.
+1 MSTP II today!
btw check out the Physician Scientist forum for the Interview Invite thread! contribute to it to let other applicants know about decisions if you'd like
+2 MSTP II about an hour ago! Complete 7/20.

Seems like they’ve passed the July complete dates, that’s a bummer
my second II today!! complete 7/13
don't worry man, we gotta just keep our heads up
II today as well! Complete 7/13.
Omfg II received yesterday! Totally freaked out. Complete 7/4
Hey so if Penn is a nonrolling admission school, is there no disadvantage for interviewing later in the cycle? I wanted to schedule for Nov because Oct is hectic for me
Ya no diff
Nice to see some July dates, now I can pretend I still have a chance
II on Friday. Complete mid august. LM 83
Dear UPenn MSTP students, is there anyone would kindly be willing to discuss about the program via personal message with me? I would greatly appreciate it!
Pm me. This good prog. We not use lot word. Little word do job.
I got my II in September and interviewed in January. I scheduled all of my nonrolling heavy hitters later in the cycle to get all of my bad interviews out of the way before it really counted.
Nah Penn’s Just slow this year. They held a town hall about plans for interview season just last week.
Do you know if only MSTP slow or MD only as well? That would be super good news. I did my undergrad here and currently work here and know its a longshot but still
thanks for the info, i appreciate it!
MD seems to be moving slow. No idea about the pace of the MSTP because student involvement in the two processes is different.
For the MD program, students can interview applicants. In the MSTP program, students don’t do interviews but get to go out to dinner and socialize with the applicants on the school’s dime so that the applicants and students can talk freely without the applicants feeling like they are being evaluated. Both seem to be good systems that have been working pretty well.
For some reason, it won't let me PM you.
Weird it won’t let me Pm you either. You can just ask here
I've been very fortunate to be invited to interview at UPenn's MD/PhD Program, and was wondering how many students they interview and what the post-interview acceptance rate is? Thank you in advance!
IIRC they interview 100-120, accept 50 or so for around 22-25 spots
is upenn receptive to updates?
Yes, they have a section on their secondary where you can upload additional information .
I’m dying at your username
Thank you kindly!
have there been any IIs recently? theyre killin me smalls
also, sorry for spooking a bunch of you following this thread with a notif :/
II just now! complete mid september. Interview dates available in mid-october to november
Were you both complete mid september?
I’ve been complete since 7/4
hey, where does it say that penn is non-rolling? i don't see that info anywhere on their website? asking because i'm hesitant to schedule the last week in nov when there's an available slot 4 weeks earlier (even though the later one would be easier for me scheduling-wise). does anyone know for sure that they're non-rolling, and more importantly, that when you interview doesn't affect your chances??
(i know they release all their decisions on the same day in march, but that doesn't mean they make their decisions on a non-rolling basis, which schools like harvard and cornell explicitly say they do)
Truly inspiring, giving us July folks false hope
