    Hi all-

    I just got my AECOM Interview Invite. They are crazy slow and even though all my stuff was in by Sept.1st. I wasn't complete until the end of October.

    So, the earliest date is Feb 3rd. Does anyone know if you can try and call and get an earlier day? They seem very opposed to phone calls.

    Also, is this still early enough to get a spot in the class as opposed to the waitlist? Its one of my first choice schools.

    Thanks so much!

    i wouldn't worry about it, since they're semi-non rolling. they don't even start accepting people until january. i have a friend who goes there, and she didn't interview until feb or march

    It's not too late. There were people from SDN who got in in June/July last year. AECOM is an awesome school, so you should definitely make the trip out there. I loved it there when I interviewed last year!

    I know someone who interviewed in April and got accepted, so it is not too late. Good luck.

    behind is an understatement. I contacted them about something and they told me my recs weren't in yet. My recs were sent to them in Sept, but they hadn't gotten around to downloading them!! that is a three month delay. it is sad cause i like the school, but now my application is super-late. they were really nice about it on the phone though.
    think there is still a chance?

    That is exactly what happened to me! So aggravating, cause it was my first secondary sent in in the middle of August. Is your app complete yet?? It took them 2 months to download my recs so I wasn't complete until 10/18.

    keep up hope! I haven't seen or heard of too many ppl interviewing there yet as compared w/other ny schools.

    I got the same invite as you. I called them this morning and asked for an earlier date and they gave me January 25th, they said it was the earliest possible date, probably due to cancellation. Hope that helps.

    Look at it this way: Better late than never.

    Best of luck to you.

    When did you call to reschedule? Just curious. For some reason, they wont give me any cancellation dates. Or maybe I just call at exactly the wrong times.

    Yeah I know...Its not that I care about the interview being late anymore.

    But, I'm going to be in NY for Winter break from Dec 16- Jan 5. It would just make my life easier and be a lot cheaper if I didn't have to fly back home in February.

    Thats all, but no medical school has really tried to help out w/costs. Flights are only 300 dollars these days. OH well

    Thats who I called. Twice. I guess I'm just calling at exactly the wrong times? I don't know.

    Thanks though!
