    A gentle reminder, I know some of you are anxious and want to compare stats, but please don't interrogate each other! SDN members may share or not share their stats at their own discretion. :angelic::shy::oops:

    *logs onto SDN without a phone call*

    My brain:
    Don’t say it
    Don’t say it
    Don’t say it
    Don’t say it
    Don’t say it
    Don’t say it
    Don’t say it
    Don’t say it

    Me: Is all hope lost?

    But really, here’s to hoping for next week! And if not, then here’s to everyday until 12/31! And if not, then 2/1 it is!

    For those of you that received an acceptance today, congratulations! I was wondering if you guys had new views of your video in the last few days leading up to today’s prematch.

    To anyone disheartened for no prematching, please keep your head up high, I know it’s easier to say it but there are like more than 10 people I know who have prematch offers to 3+ schools, they are gonna have to pick one at the end and more spots will open up. And more than likely, if you interviewed, you will get in somewhere. But don’t lose hope just yet. Enjoy your weekend and cheer up :)

    I had dates 12/1, 12/3, 1/7, and 1/12. I wanted 12/1 or 12/3, but in the time I checked flight and hotel costs those dates were taken. So now I’m left with the January dates.

    MS1 here too! Feel free to message me!

    Also, for anyone dreading not prematching or whatever, I came off the waitlist in June in the middle of filling out my reapplication.
    Don't focus on the things you can't control, I'm sure a bunch of you will match or come off the waitlist.

    For those of you that have already interviewed here, what kinds of questions are to be expected in the two different interviews?

    Prematched. LM 61 since someone asked earlier. Really good ECS.

    I was looking at the requirements page today and noticed they put a minimum science GPA of a 3.2 but their msar average is a 3.2. Is this kind of a soft requirement? Confused about this

    They make exceptions. Someone posted a figure from the school that shows if you don’t meet their requirements, your application is sent to someone to review holistically before possibly screening you out. So, if they think you fit their mission, they will make an exception.

    Happy to answer any PMs!

    Also for those that don't prematch or match what @Watah said about waitlist movement is 100% truth, there are lots in our class who came off the waitlist late, so don't ever give up hope.

    II today. Only day available is this Friday. It's too short notice.
    Does anyone know if more dates will open up?

    I will most likely be canceling my interview this week, so there should be a spot in December opening up. Love the school and love the valley but I don't see myself ranking UTRGV over my prematches, so someone else deserves the interview slot.

    II! Definitely unexpected. Completed in June. ORM, OOS, no ties to the RGV region (except an ex-bf was from here...they don't know that tho haha).
    I will likely decline my II and hopefully they give the spot to one of y'all.

    Right now I see dates in Nov (1), Dec (2), and Jan (1). Hope this gives some hope to those still waiting :)

    To add to this, a friend of mine got a call from them a few days ago for prematch. Be on the lookout for that 956 area code.

    Not binding at this stage. You may accept one or more prematch offers, and then for your match list, due by January 18th 5pm Central Time, rank all schools where you have interviewed in your true order of preference.

    I did not plan on attending this school and already have other acceptances, but also just got a waitlist. I withdrew my app. But how can they waitlist before the match? Was just curious
