    Anyone know how late in the cycle they hand out II's? Should I just assume I won't recieve an II at this point?

    Wondering the same thing. I got an email from admissions saying my file is still under review with admissions. Anyone have any advice about if they are still interviewing?

    Last year they had interviews through mid February so there is still hope I think.

    just spoke with the admissions office (havent heard from them yet regarding rejection or interview) and they said we should be hearing back within the next two weeks. Not sure if that's a good or bad sign. has anyone else not heard back since their secondary?

    I havent heard anything since secondary. I was thinking I'm getting rejected but I thought I'd at least get an interview.

    I was thinking the same thing. My college works closely with the U and we were told that if you hit their min GPA, MCAT, Leadership, LOR, and volunteer hours you're pretty much guaranteed an interview but I guess I could've misunderstood...

    Yeah its odd, I know someone who has lower stats than I in terms of MCAT and GPA and they got an II. Maybe they weigh ECs pretty heavy or maybe its because I wasnt complete until mid october who knows.

    If I remember what they said when I interviewed there in October, MCAT/GPA, EC's, and interview day stuff each equal 1/3 of their evaluation of you so I guess MCAT/GPA and EC's are equally weighted.

    As a second year applicant, my understanding is that they weigh ECs heavily for II and then almost downgrade it to 1/3 (along with GPA/MCAT and interviews). They don’t say this explicitly but they aren’t 100% transparent with the admissions process. I scored a 499 MCAT with a ~3.6 GPA my first year (dismal), but my ECs are good so I was luckily granted an interview. Keep your heads up though guys! Keep grinding!!!

    It was emphasized from my freshman year at my university that the U weighs EC VERY heavily. So if you don’t meet or exceed their average for all ECs it’ll probably be very difficult to get an interview.

    Interesting, that makes a lot of sense. My ECs are quite average nothing too extraordinary.
