    People that have already interviewed, I need help- where did you stay if you stayed overnight? And how bad is the traffic there? I’ve heard Detroit traffic can get pretty bad....also did anyone have or apply for a student host?

    I would not invest in either. I went with no coat just because it was a short walk and I didn't wanna have to keep track of a coat. If it's raining you could take an umbrella, but the walk is only a couple minutes and you go everywhere else by bus. You could bring a jacket you already have, but I would not invest in one just for the interview. Maybe you could thrift one if you really wanted it?

    Stayed at the Inn on Ferry Street. Highly reccomended- very close to campus and have a free shuttle to the interview

    SS looks more and more like a hold. I hate to continue wondering about it but...can't help it I guess.

    Anybody else out there sitting on SC? I keep checking my portal and emails constantly but I feel like Wayne State is done giving out II's

    SS for the last 5-6 months. Is it worth sending an update letter for what ive done this last half year? Publications, outreach programs, etc.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Did you submit only to the application service or did you also send it via email to let them know that you had updated your activities?

    I too sent an update before Xmas. But unfortunately I've still had no response. Went to SC Dec 5th. I have heard from a lot of schools that students can be invited to an interview up to days before due to cancellations and the last days are mostly during the first week of March. I doubt Wayne is vastly different.

    Is it worth sending update letters if you get waitlisted after an II?

    Where are you guys finding SS or SC? There is nothing of those initials that shows up on my portal.

    Towards the bottom on the checklist portal! It should say “admissions decision” on the left and on the right it should either say MR, SC, SS or MV. Those are the varieties I’ve seen so far on SDN.

    No one really knows! Everyone has been just guessing. It may be categories or for all we know it may be the initials of the people reviewing our apps.... Reading all the posts above it seems like most people at SC got an interview. However, some people were stuck at MR and SS and got an interview as well...

    When filling out the FAFSA form, does Wayne State require parent information? If not, what are the pros/cons of including it or not?

    You don't have to include your parents information. There is literally no reason for doing this as you are already an adult. They judge whether or not you'll qualify for need based scholarships based on your FAFSA history in undergrad.

    For those who got an interview invite, could you let us know which status you were at before you got the II? (MR, SS, SC...)

    This was the order for me with what I guess each of these could mean:

    SS= Satisfactory Screen
    SC= Screen Complete
    MR= Med School Review
    MV= Med School Visit
    MA= Med School Admit

    I think everyone gets MR first once secondary is submitted and before it begins to change for some people

    I'm not sure how Wayne State does it, but at my Toledo interview we were told to be considered for need based aid we had to include our parents information. Not sure if any other schools do this.

    Does anyone know if Wayne has handed out rejections or has it pretty much just been acceptances/waitlisted?

    No, but if you go to their “admitted student” page then they have a checklist and what to do about those is on there I’m pretty sure.

    Looks like the overwhelmingly majority of people who got IIs had SC beforehand. I personally have SS and would say there’s a pretty high likelihood that it’s a hold

    Good catch! This sounds to be completely up to the school's discretion. According the financial aid office at Wayne and the FAQ for UNLV, they do not require parental income information to be considered for need based aid. With that said, it's probably safer to just go ahead and include parental information just in case a school does require it.
