    Do they tell you at the interview exactly when they will meet next and decide on your future? I have an interview on 1/23.

    They did for us.

    Anyone who was accepted in a previous week know how long it takes to get info for the FB group and such?

    There should be something about it in one of the attachments to your acceptance email, and in the body of your acceptance confirmation email. It just says that we should join and will receive an invite...

    As for what’s special about it- I think people are just excited to network with and get to know other accepted students!

    Has anyone else who interviewed on 12/5 not heard anything yet? The dean said she would call for acceptances but I am not sure if she said anything about emailing about the waitlist. I haven't heard anything thus far. Thanks!

    I interviewed on 12/5 too and I remember her saying that we would get contacted on the 11th if the committee reached a unanimous decision. So it sounds like it's entirely plausible to not hear back for some time. But you will get an email if you are waitlisted.

    Haha yeah. Email was sent out saying we were invited but no hyperlink was attached to the email. I think we might just need to sit tight and wait for a second email.

    I received an email in my regular inbox, not containing a link. I have yet to receive any other email, even in my social folder.

    Edit: just got the link through my social folder, but it does not work atm. It will probably just take a sec to figure it out

    Is the link still not working? I can't even find the group if I search for it on Facebook.

    @ilikecheeseandeggs I'll add the link to this comment when I can but it doesn't work anyway (at least for me)!

    The link didn't work for me at first because the invite was sent to the email I gave AMCAS so you just have to log into your facebook and add that email to your account! @Dr_Yankee @ilikecheeseandeggs @medmed54321

    Guys, do we take anything to the interview? Like a portfolio with a resume/app or something? It doesnt mention anything in resources section but I keep reading I should take one for a med school interview.

    If we interviewed in early December, we're supposed to hear back today or tomorrow depending on the decision, right?

    I think Dean Arias said we would get a call today if we were accepted and an email later in the week if we were waitlisted (or rejected). Not totally certain though!

    So I wondered the same thing which led to me investigating last years SDN thread. During my search, I found one user who was accepted on Oct. 16 and then later received a call from Dr. Arias about a full scholarship on Jan 10th. So... no... but n=1
