    After the consideration for phone interview email, approximately how long until you heard from the admissions team again?
    Also, their portal is the same link for the secondary right? It keeps giving me an error message.

    Thank you for your help!!!

    Anyone complete with experience review end of July still waiting? Does this school reject post-experiences review or do they just keep in silence?

    from other posts, it seems like they do send Rs after the experiences review

    it seems like a lot of people have this error message. I got my "consideration" email on July 30, and got the email for a phone interview on August 8. Later in the cycle, however, there may be a longer gap period between each step. Good luck !

    surprising to me. Especially since this is a MCAT heavy school.

    Yeah me too. I was right around their 10th for gpa and well above their 90th for MCAT but there are more important things than stats!

    Oh well, good luck to everyone else still in the running!

    Does anyone who had an interview remember how we were meant to send Thank you emails? Did they say to send them straight to our interviewer or were we meant to send them to the admissions email address?

    Pretty sure we send them to admissions email and then they distribute them. Also, are people writing them to just the one on one interviewer or everyone?

    looks like ~17 days for the group that interviewed 10/12. On my interview day (10/26), they said within 3 weeks for sure, but likely 2 weeks.

    anything I should be prepared for?

    My phone interview was literally a train wreck I was driving and I forgot about it and my answers were so bad. Thag being said, it’s pretty simple questions and mine lasted 10 mins. I feel like it doesn’t have much meaning as I recieved an on campus II afterwards.

    This makes me feel better because mine was 8 mins! But I felt like I just knew the answers to the questions so for me it didn't take long to think about it. I probably could have gone more in depth on some though...
