    Got an II for MSTP, however I will have to reschedule my interview date due to unforeseen circumstances that I cannot work around. Will this be an issue since UPenn organizes interview sessions based on the graduate studies you have indicated? My past research is also relevant to other graduate studies besides the one I indicated, and I have multiple interests for pursuing my PhD.

    Any current MSTP students able to comment on whether UPenn allows re-scheduling of MD/PhD interviews? Thank you in advance :)

    For me the options were a few days in late November. There were no choices after that in my portal so I think they either gave me a specific window or they haven't opened up later dates yet

    II this morning! I'm really surprised, I had no expectation of getting one here - feeling very blessed.

    LM~75, nontraditional, veteran.

    Like Pickles13, I also only had two choices in November for dates.

    For those of you who had your interviews, do you know if interviewees have to go to the pre-interview connections the day before the interview? Also, what did you do during that time?

    You don’t. Flirt with current students - but it has 0 impact on admissions. It’s supposed to be meant for people who feel very nervous about the interview to feel more relaxed

    Okay, awesome! Did they tell you that it has 0 impact on admissions? Most of the other schools say that they are optional, but this email did not mention it at all.

    Yep, thanks! I did an interview at Pitt, so they're still in the running when I hear back in January. I have family there, so that's a big pull.

    For those of you who have Interviewed and requested a host - when did you get confirmation about the student hosting prior to the interview?
