2023-2024 Alabama

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.
Apparently they had a portrait unveiling ceremony tonight so I’ll just attribute the lack of communication to that

I’m sure they were just being conservative in their first wave of acceptances! The decision is out of your control at this point, so please enjoy the weekend :)

Anyone know how far into their season they are for interviews? OOS app
 
Appeal to school-specific thread: Heersink UABSOM recommended PREview for the 2023-2024 cycle.

Complete the 2023 Situational Judgment Test Experience survey.

HPSA/SDN has the 2023 SJT Experience Survey available to anyone preparing for SJTs (especially Casper and PREview). If you completed the 2022 survey, you are welcome to go ahead and complete the survey again. This survey consists of multiple pages and will take up to 10 minutes. You can also place yourself on a waitlist for a study focusing more on school-run SJTs run through platforms like Kira Talent, to be released later in the year.

Your feedback matters!
We learned a lot about how applicants prepared for Casper and PREview last year, but the number of PREview schools has almost doubled this cycle! Over 20% of all AMCAS applicants will likely have taken PREview, and up to 90% of all medical school applicants will likely have taken Casper this cycle (according to Acuity Insights). This does not include applicants in non-medical professions who have had to take these assessments for admission to physician assistant, anesthesiology assistant, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, or physical therapy programs, where we see a trend that applicants with higher Casper results are preferred. Medical residency applicants are also being asked to complete Acuity Insights Assessments, and very little is known about how program directors use these data. Your responses are vital to get objective insights on how admissions committees value the results of these exams.

Your feedback matters!
We want to hear from as many people as possible, especially those attending or applying outside of medicine (MD/DO). This year saw an expansion of SJTs in admissions, and more information has been made available on preparing for these assessments. We want to stay current with these trends to guide future applicants and students facing these SJTs.

Many of our findings from the 2022 survey align with the NAAHP Testing Task Force report released last summer. This includes concerns about proctoring, consistency of scoring, and concern that applicants are paying for validity research. But we need more student voices to gain a louder voice to advocate for future health professional school applicants.

Your feedback has helped HPSA develop a workshop focused on preparing for SJTs like Casper and PREview. This workshop is part of our Becoming a Student Doctor preparation course, and we have already had some positive results among those who have participated in our mock interview workshops. An updated workshop will be presented at the UC Davis Prehealth Conference on October 14, and we welcome opportunities to present the full-length SJT workshop to your campus!

Fill out this survey and help future applicants become physicians in their chosen profession!

I don’t have a twitter and the website won’t let me view updated posts without logging in - has anyone seen any twitter updates about them meeting today/what interview dates have been reviewed? 👀

For those who already interviewed, how many days before your interview did you get the links and other info for the interview?
 
My hope is lowkey running out regarding getting an II considering last cycle, by this point, they had completed more than half of the ADCOM meetings... Hurts even more that I'm IS and an alum ://

Don’t lose hope! Their interview season still has a couple months left, and I’ve heard of plenty of people who get in after interviewing later in the cycle (like Jan and Feb)

Hmmm… so if I haven’t gotten it after a week, should I reach out to the admissions team?

In my interview invite/confirmation, they said I would receive it a week before my interview. So I wouldn’t be nervous until you’re a week out.

To echo what Sahm said, you’ll see it a week prior. If you’re 48 hours out from the interview day with no link, I’d check your junk mail and then call the admissions office. Other than that, it’s highly likely you’ll get the email.

I should probably clarify my response. My interview invite just so happened to be two weeks prior my interview day LOL

So I received my follow-up email exactly a week after the II, which was also a week before the interview.

My interview is this upcoming Thursday, so I thought I would’ve received the information last Thursday. I also checked my junk email and didn’t find anything. I guess I’ll wait until Tuesday before calling them! Thank you all for the help!

Hey! When did you submit? I have not heard back either.
1st week of August (would prefer not to specify specific date). You?

Idk if this is a late secondary submission relatively speaking bc idk anyone else currently applying. The silence is just very unnerving...

3rd week of August, but my other friend who also submitted that week received a pre-II R already.
 
To anyone interviewing this Thursday, have you received any info emails for Kira Talent yet?
 
Unrelated to cycle progress, but omg y’all I forgot: the 14-yo child prodigy, Alena Analeigh, will be part of the 2024 entering class!

Does anyone know if UAB accepts post-II update letters?
I think they mentioned on interview day that you should send the update shortly after the interview because the committee meets pretty quickly afterward on your app
