Should I email admissions about scheduling my OOR interview? It’s been over two weeks since I received an email saying I was selected to interview.
Don’t. They’ll get to you when they get to you. Trust me, you’re not the only person waiting. Also it’s the holiday season/new year so I doubt anyone has been working the last couple of weeks. Congrats on the interview tho

Here I am, a TRUST applicant, who hasn't heard back from admissions since early November when they told me that at some point in the future I would be contacted to schedule an interview.

I had my interview today, I thought that all three of my interviewers were very friendly and tried to make the process as stress-free as possible. I did feel that some of the questions were challenging but just prepare as you would for any other interview and you'll do great :) It was my first panel type interview and it honestly felt similar to a one-on-one in my opinion!

Congratulations on having the interview behind you! Great job!! Can I ask which cohort you interviewed for?

Anyone have an idea as to why some in-state applicants receive an II from UW but not WSU?
My guess would be that rural medicine plays more of a significant role in WSU's mission. We had a recruiter come by my undergrad and speak a few years back and she explicitly stated that if rural medicine wasn't something that you were seriously considering, then you would be better off applying to the other state schools..

I was accepted to WSU this year and I told them how I am interested in working in an urban, academic hospital. However, I’m also interested in community health and have worked in underserved areas.

I was invited for seattle cohort interview, and they said I would get another email about scheduling it 2-3 weeks prior... but the last Jan interview date is on 19th and I haven't received anything yet. I emailed them yesterday and no response.... should i call them or just cool it for a while?

(i'm very excited for this offer since i wasn't expecting it all with my stats)

don't worry about it, they'll respond to you shortly. I did the same thing as you (emailed regarding interview dates) and they responded that they were trying to accommodate everyone. Later that week, I was able to schedule my interview.

I got the II last week I think, my email said the Seattle cohort was interviewing through the week of Feb 26th. So I think they just keep extending out because of COVID delays.

Interviewed with the Seattle Cohort this morning. While any interview is stressful and challenging, I'm really happy with how it went. My interviewers tried their best to make me feel comfortable even in the virtual setting, and make it more of a conversation than an interrogation.

Good luck to everyone still pending interviews!

For those who interviewed with the Seattle Cohort. How long was the interview for? Any general advice/tips to prepare for the interview? Is it virtual MMI format? Based on role playing?

The interview is 30 minutes. I'd say just know your application and prepare to answer some basic behavioral questions. I was told during my interview that there would be one ethics-related question, but they didn't have time to ask me it.

Overall, it was very laid back. You're going to do great! :)

+1. Got SUC'd on 12/21
I have a friend who is an in-state applicant, interviewed for the Spokane campus, and was also put under SUC around this time. Does anyone know when you all are supposed to get the results? Also, what does SUC truly mean in the context of UWSOM (e.g. a red flag was raised in the interview/they just want to conduct more interviews before admitting more/etc.)?

For Spokane, they said they were probably only admitting 10-15 from the first week. The second and last week of interviews for Spokane should be the last week of January. I'm assuming they will have their EXCOM meeting shortly after and everyone will either be A, WL, or R. SUC literally just means you're still under consideration, so at that time you're not the best and not the worst.

There may be one this week, as there were interviews last week and we were told we would hear something by the end of this week.

yeah they say end of week but you'll get a call if you were accepted and then SUC or R emails are sent early the week after
True, but nobody has posted yet that they’ve gotten an acceptance call, so I’m not sure if any calls have gone out yet. Of course, it could just be that whoever they called just hasn’t posted and/or doesn’t use Sdn, but holding out hope.
