Anyone else been accepted, I feel like there were a few weeks where a bunch of people heard back. I interviewed the 2nd week of Fed, thinking I will hopefully hear by the 15th?

Haven't been accepted (yet?), also interviewed the 2nd week of February. What I've noticed on the thread is that the students recently accepted were accepted ~1 month after their interviews. Based off that trend, I think we might hear back either this week or next week (the 15th is reasonable). Keeping my fingers crossed...

mid march, that said I wouldn't expect to recieve an interview from here on out. a couple might go out but most likely they've invited 99.9% of the people they will end up interviewing.
Yeah I agree. Looks like no Kaiser this year. Good luck to all of you guys who interviewed!

I interviewed 2/26 and it seemed like they are trying to finalize decisions prior to second look. According to AAMC rules, I think that they have to offer 48 acceptances (their class size) by 3/15. On our interview day, they specifically said that they had not yet filled the class so there should be some spots remaining. Wishing everyone good luck for the month ahead!

Just got their "End of cycle status update" email - I guess a nice way of saying you are rejected lol. I wish they would have updated us as they went.... seems like they never rejected anyone up until now.
Same here buddy. It hurts for sure, but apparently things in life happen for a reason. It makes no sense to me in the grand scheme of things. I wish you the best my friend.

I haven't gotten an email yet, so i guess they just want to silently reject me lol
I didn’t get the email either. I’m assuming each person managing X number of apps was instructed to send this email so it’s going out in batches

OR (glimmer of hope?) they have a list of apps on the back burner since they will have difficulty anticipating how many people will actually enroll :D

Who knows! I’m hoping it’s the latter by some miracle hahaha

I interviewed here on Thursday and they said that everyone will be hearing back by the end of this month (good or bad) so the school can focus on revisit day and everything else! To me, it sounded like if you are going to get offered one of the initial 48 seats, you’ll be hearing back in the next few weeks so you can make arrangements to travel back to Pasadena. I could definitely be wrong though because it was a loooong day at they discussed it as we were filling out a survey and getting ready to leave. Good luck y’all!

Did they mention if there would be a formal waitlist? I interviewed in December so I would love to know waitlist vs R

I wonder if they will hold off on the end of cycle email for people that are really close to the school (socal residents) in case of last minute II withdrawals? Or as said above it could just be waves - but I don't see why they wouldn't automate that, wouldn't be too hard to do.

Did anyone’s app status in the portal change from “complete and awaiting review”? (End of cycle email received or no email received)

Do you guys think Kaiser will cancel 2nd look? Kind of want to know before I buy masks, gloves, and wipes for the airport...
You shouldn't be buying masks since the surgical ones won't protect you from the virus. You should be wearing a mask if you are sick but even then, you shouldn't be going out in the first place. Sure you could buy a N95 respirator, but those are extremely uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. Please leave the masks for healthcare workers.

I’m definitely going to wear one and gloves because airports are literally the hotspot and I’m not taking chances cause I have been a little under the weather

Seeking advice on an update letter--

I interviewed on 2/27 and mentioned to my interviewer a couple of updates that were not included in my primary or secondary app. Should I still send an update letter with info about my current activities?

Yes, your interviewer is not necessarily on the adcom. They got Kaiser physicians to come and interview (I think they’re more closely affiliated with the school but mine specifically said she wasn’t on the committee). You can briefly mention that you said this during your interview, but you wanted to send a formal update & letter of interest.

Has anyone with early February interviews heard back yet? At this point, we'll likely hear back next week around the 15th, but wondering if I wasn't alone on the early Feb boat.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I have noticed that a lot of accepted applicants on the thread received the email and phone call on Wednesday. Maybe they do all their acceptance calls on that specific day of the week? :unsure:

Why the 15th?
March 15th is a big date for med schools in the traffic rules, since they have to issue enough acceptances equal to the number of students in the class. Kaiser would have had to send out at least 48 acceptances by this date.

I suspect they have already sent at least 48.

Has anyone heard anything who interviewed the very end of January?

Does Kaiser review applications through March with interviews extending into April, or is everything pretty much wrapped up (including interviews) by end of March?
