I emailed the address they listed and they said they try to match around 2 weeks before the interview, but sometimes they don't match until 1 week before an interview. But they've never not matched anyone.
Thanks! I emailed them and they basically said to just hold on.

I guess you miss my point. Which is to point out how choosey and entitled to those particular preferences some applicants can get while simultaneously turning the interview process into a collection game after 5 or so invites. Some people won’t even get a single invite or more than one.. so do not have the thought to spare towards the ambiance of NOLA and culture vs any hopeful school they wish would give them a chance. Humility is a good trait you know.
Haha you have to not get so triggered by people having interviews or you’re going to be miserable until you get them. No need to project your insecurities on others. He/she has the right to care about a school that he/she applied to.

Congrats! What dates are available?
Jan 23rd and 24th are the first available. There were also two dates in February and two in early March but I can't see the calendar anymore now that I've signed up.

So I know no one cares BUT I did the unthinkable- I glanced at last years thread. It seems like unlike this year, last year had a hold as a post-review status in addition to II/R. Thats probably why people are not hearing back within a month+ with a concrete answer- they are likely in the hold category without a formal title.

Anyone have their interview here yet? How was it?
Tulane probably has the most laid-back interview you'll have all cycle. It's a long day and there's a fair amount of walking, so if you're wearing heels be sure to wear comfortable ones (and definitely bring comfy shoes to change into for the tour at the end). The sequence of events in the day is as follows: Introduction, patient simulation, faculty interview, student lunch interview, tour. Everyone on my day was kind, enthusiastic, and genuinely wanted us to be comfortable and express our unique personalities. As they mention in the email, it is truly just having a conversation, rather than being grilled from a set list of questions. My advice: relax, take several slow deep breaths, and understand that everyone on your interview day wants you to succeed. Ask questions to all the various people you'll meet that day, as everyone has insight on the school that will help inform your choice. If you can stay with a student host the night before, I highly recommend it! Explore the city and get a feel for its unique culture; as all the locals will tell you, there's no place like it on Earth.

Best of luck to all interviewing!

Also, side note: CASPer is not currently being used as an admissions metric, but Tulane is tracking it in order to determine whether it correlates with success in the interview and academic success in the med school later on. They're currently evaluating its validity, so it won't be used against you this cycle.

ok so i submitted my secondary, and everything has a green check park except for the the in progress, which still is red. Any idea why this would be? Do they send complete emails?
The past 24 pages of this forum discuss exactly that. The last one turns green when they look at your app.

I find this process super strange.. I submitted 8/29 and got a complete and under review email under a week after. I don't have high stats but I would say I'm a great fit for their mission with great EC? Idk maybe it's just an automatic sorting into the R pile lol.

Tulane could likely have median stats like 3.8/515 if they wanted to select for GPA and MCAT due to being an awesome school and having so many applicants. They seem more focused on other parts of your app.

That's very true! Well, I'll cross my fingers they see some things they like in my app. Maybe they filter apps for hours of volunteering/leadership? As in when they look at it I mean. Or maybe it's all random who knows:shrug:
