Does anyone know how strict they are about the letter requirements? I only have 2 science letters, not 3.

I'm sure this is not the correct place to post this, but I couldn't find any place better. I will be applying for Med School next year and am set on going to USA. I live about an hour away and would like to not move if possible. I've heard that most lectures are recorded now so you don't have to actually go to school many days of the week.

I am wondering if anyone know, realistically, how many days a week you will be required to be at school.

Also, is it possible to do clinical rotations closer to where I live (Pensacola)? The website says that they do rotations in the Mobile area (which obviously makes sense) but it didn't say you couldn't do them elsewhere.

I would go to their website where it details the curriculum, or I would call the Office of Administrations and ask your question, and they will likely answer it or forward your call to someone that can answer that question for you. They are often super nice and helpful.

So...........
Per post-secondary email (7/15) " The Admissions Committee convenes in September... If you are selected for an interview, you will be notified by email approximately 2-3 weeks prior to your interview date. All of our interviews are conducted on Wednesdays, September through March."

So theoretically, if interviews start at the end of September, they should start going out this week/next. Fingers crossed, the anxiety is setting in haha

Has anyone gotten a completed app email? I submitted my secondary early August and my committee letter was uploaded end of August but I still haven't heard anything. Do they update you when your app is complete and that you are in review?
They do not! I emailed because I was in the same boat. Good ole Delia mustve came through for us both on August 26/27.

I believe someone in my interview group was from out of state but had heavy in-state ties (born and raised in AL but moved after college graduation and worked in another state for a few gap years).

Hey guys! I interviewed here yesterday and thought that some of you might be curious about the format. They sent me an email with a personalized schedule about 5 days before the interview. It contained links with information about the school plus the names and background on my two interviewers (both faculty). They had us to login to zoom about 15 before the actual interview day started, I just chilled and played on my phone while I waited for the host to let me in at 9am. There was a welcome from the director of admissions (plus other information about the day/interview process) for about 40 min. They have built in breaks, so I had 20 min to relax before my first interview plus another 20 min break before my second. Both interviewers were incredible nice, came with prepared questions but it was overall pretty conversations. We then had a 45min Q&A current students who were very chill and helpful. Lastly, some closing remarks. It went very well I think. Let me know if you guys have any questions about it!
