I am definately not a superstar candidate and have received around 10 invitations so far. By not superstar I mean I got more non-honors than honors (but the rest were high passes). I think it's just how the school views a "complete application." If you're still waiting for LORs (I am not) then that's probably the hold up. A lot of places don't take a lot of stock in the Dean's Letter, but some (Indiana) sent an email saying they are specifically waiting for it.Originally posted by tonem
I've heard from a couple of sources that interviews start to go out around the end of October with a few exceptions for superstar applicants. I was getting nervous too because some of my friends have already received multiple invites for other specialties.
Step 1 was 245; have not taken Step 2. There are two people at my home institution/EM program that had 260+ that I personally know of. But the RANGE at my home school dips down to the low 200s for EM, so a high score is icing but not required to get in.Originally posted by Future EM?
were your board scores real high?
