    It depends on the interview day. The ADCOM meets every two weeks on Wednesday. They send the letter that Thursday and you will receive a letter on Monday. I got my letter 12 days after I interviewed. One of my classmates got theirs 5 days afterword.

    Has anyone sent updates to USA, or know how to?
    A lot of schools have an area on the portal, which I'm not seeing here, so just wanted to check I'm not missing something before I email! TIA

    Message: "The Admissions Committee for University of South Alabama College of Medicine has carefully evaluated your application for admission to our class matriculating August 2019.

    Do everything you can to stay encouraged! I got rejected last year with a 500 and was devastated. I tweaked my study methods and got my score up several points. Was able to apply early decision this year.

    I think it's 503. The website stays updated each year with the minimum EDP requirements!

    Anyone else get any more II from South, I think these next two weeks will be the last dates for II to be sent.

    Anyone know when the admissions standards are going to be lowered next? It seems that is usually happens in February.

    I've gotten it too, and Reddit folks said that's an almost sure sign of acceptance! Fingers crossed we get some love in the mail!

    Congratulations! You should be getting an invitation to the Facebook group. I was told that people use that platform to get information for roommates, apartments, etc.
