Got an II a little under a week ago! Small pooled in January. I was wondering if you guys think I should send in an update before attending the interview or just inform them of the clinical job I started 3 months ago? I was just about to send an update before I got the II. The only reason I'm asking is I don't want them to forget it as it's added very valuable clinical hours to my app lol (over 400 hours). Or send an update after the II?

I hope all of you still waiting for II will be blessed by one soon!
Hey! I had a decent update that I wanted them to have in writing as well! Basically what I did was waited tell after my interview and sent an update that also stated how appreciative I was for three interview and how much I loved MCW, then I dove into my update.

Just n=1 but it worked for me and I got accepted!

So another update for 2020-2021 application cycle people who are reading this. Smallpooled on 9/9. I did not get any activity until January along with the rest of the people and it was an email telling me to keep waiting. At this point, I don't think I will be receiving an II. But as I promised, I will keep updating you until I get that R or II. Anyways if you are reading this then nice job making it to page #20. Keep scrolling and looking for my updates.

Hi! Does anyone know how long they've been taking to get back to people post-interview? Specifically for the Milwaukee Campus, if that helps.

I heard back two weeks after my interview. They gave us the decision date during one of the presentations the day of the interview.

Hi! I loved this school after my interview! I want to send an update and also let them know how much I love MCW, but was wondering how long to wait after sending an interview thank you. Did you send a thank you before sending the update?

Hey, sorry for getting back to you late. I actually uploaded them all the same day. I wrote my two thank you letters while in the airport and then my update/interest on the way home and submitted it that evening. The way I see it is that the thank you's go to individuals and the update letter goes to the committee (realistically they probably see all of them). Also I highly recommend submitting them in PDF and signing them - it looks professional and shows effort! Best of luck to you!

Were you guys small pooled? Also, did you receive the 'admissions cycle update' email?
I think I got small pooled, it was an email with a “you’re application is being further considered” or something like that? That was on 10/17. And I did get admissions cycle update. The II said there are limited spots left and that only a few acceptances would be handed out after now and that most would be waitlisted- but good luck to everyone!

I'm an accepted student for incoming 2020 class and just got informed I am not a Wisconsin resident when in fact I thought I was. I know that they mention that residency determination is just for tuition purposes only but is it possible to get denied admission after being accepted due to this? thnx!

You don't have to be a Wisconsin resident to attend. They are also not a state-funded school (I originally thought that they were).

However, if you ARE a Wisconsin resident, call or email Financial Aid so you can get that in-state tuition! They may need more documentation from you.

I guess I was wondering because on AMCAS i wrote i am a resident of WI since i thought i was but i just got notified by HEAB that i am not so I just wanted to make sure this wont cause me to get kicked off admisisons

I was told that the Central Wisconsin admissions committee meets Feb. 28. Does anyone know if they notify applicants the same day the committee meets of post-interview decisions or are they staggered the following week after they meet?

I was told that they send their decisions to the campus in Milwaukee, who has to approve it. I was also told that 99% of the time they agree with the satellite campus's decisions.

Did they elaborate on why you don't meet their criteria? That is odd. I highly doubt it would affect an admissions decision, but now that I think about it you may need to tell admissions, since they collect data on in-state versus out-of-state students.

Here is a screenshot from MSAR regarding MCW's residency policy:

This is what we were told too when I interviewed there in January. We were told that the admissions committee already discussed and submitted their choice(s) to the main campus before we even left the interview (I attended the afternoon session).

Thanks for the info. It’s the final stretch of waiting, hopefully we can turn the interview into an A!

I read that MCW has a post II acceptance rate ~88%, does anyone know if this is accurate? I have a very hard time believing it could be this high.

On MSAR, MCW interviewed 611 people for 250 spots (this includes GB and Central Wis locations). Most private schools need to accept 2-3x the number of applicants to fill seats. Since MCW accepts half the class from WI, I assume that they need to accept closer to the 2x number because IS applicants tend to stay instate, so the 88% seems reasonable. I'd expect a number of those spots to come from the waitlist.

We were actually told during the interview that no one got off the waitlist last year. Not sure if this year will be similar.

I sent in an update a couple of days ago but nothing is showing up on the portal. Is that typical? I don't want to double send an update if it did in fact go through. Anyone else here send an update and is willing to let me know if it showed on their portal that they had done so or not.

I uploaoded an update to the portal and it showed up fairly quickly. Did you email the update to Admissions, or did you update it straight to the portal? Either way, I would email Admissions soon and just ask if they recieved it or can see it on their end.

Thank you for answering. I uploaded it straight to the portal. I'll contact admissions today.

The admissions team during my interview said that while they didn't remove people off the waitlist last year, they have taken strides to make sure that doesn't happen this year. To ensure applicants that this year the waitlist will have movement, as they won't make the same mistakes they had last year.

I interviewed 2/21 and they told us we’d hear before March 20th. I’ve heard they’ve typically been sending decisions in 2 weeks. Anybody get theirs in 2 weeks?

+1 they told us during 2/21 interview that the 0 waitlist movement was a one time fluke that won’t happen this year

So I've been keeping tabs on MCW SDN and it looks like admissions make their announcements on Fridays, and the last Friday where there was a surge of people getting acceptances/rejects/waitlists was January 31st. Then till now there has been silence on any post-II decisions on this thread. I'm anticipating everyone who interviewed late January and this month is gonna hear this Friday. They told us during my interview date that they'd tell us by the 28th, so hopefully we'll know then.

EDIT: I interviewed the 31st.

Hey team. II yesterday at 10:58am for MKE campus.

I am IS, LizzyM score < 55, strong experiences, research, some informal, successful post-bacc courses, and resilience in application. Complete 8/15, Small Pool 10/18. Sent update letter 12/2.

Only date left for interviewing was this Friday, 2/28. 3/6 was booked, as others have mentioned.

This is my only interview during my first medical school application cycle. Even though chances are slim, it is incredibly validating just to get the interview! Feeling blessed and EXCITED!

To those who haven't received an invite from here or anywhere, please don't get discouraged. I have an amazing non-traditional 'coming from the bottom now we here' pre-medical journey and had completely lost hope on this cycle until yesterday. Lesson: never give up.

Thanks for all of you on here for your support and detailed information along the cycle, please keep me in mind this week as I prepare!

Hi guys. Out of state here. I'm choosing between schools and I was wondering what you guys thought were pros of MCW compared to your other choices?
