anybody know the post ii acceptance rate here and how long it takes them to tell you?
In my interview they said they are interviewing 450ish, not sure how many they accept. Decisions come out October 16 for interviews that are before that date!

Yes. First date available for me was in February. I think they look at OOS after in state applicants.

Does anyone else have an open house tab on their portal? Apparently it’s for accepted and people under review but I’m not sure if everyone has it

OOS A earlier today :). Interviewed 10/4. Super friendly school.
 
OOS pre-II R. Weak ties to the state. Just emailed them back asking for the specific R reasoning.

Reasoning was weak ties, as suspected. Good luck to everyone still in the running!

II invite on 10/2, but the only options left were late March. I'm OOS, with close ties.. Did anyone else also have only late March options? I'm worried the class will already be filled by then

I got mine in mid-September and only had late Jan to march options available.
 
Hi everyone, I am a current M1 here at the USC school of medicine. I was accepted last year off the waitlist (hopefully this gives some hope to people on the WL)! Goodluck to everyone currently applying, and to those that have already gotten interviews, congrats! It's a long process but you all have got this!!
