How did the interview go? Did you express your strong interest in an acceptance at the interview or via an update letter?

Overall, I'd say your chances are very good for NM, but I certainly hope you applied to some other schools, too. If asked prior to submission, I'd have suggested that you shadow a primary care doc, too, but if you want something pertinent to include in a future update letter, it's not too late to get that done.

I did express my strong interest in the interview.

I also applied to other med schools.

My interviews were good. One of my interviews was more of a discussion for over 2.5hrs.

I'd like to think this is evidence that they liked you, else why invest so much time in one candidate. How many other interviews have you been offered?
