Are these schools still sending out IIs or are they just late to send out mass R emails?

I have yet to hear anything back from these schools:

University of South Florida
Miami
Maryland—Edit: II season over
Florida State
Duke--Edit: confirmed II season is over.
Uconn
South Carolina Greenville—Edit II season over
Florida Atlantic
Temple
EVMS

Does anyone know for sure if any of these schools are still interviewing or if their interview season is over and they just haven’t sent the email yet? Thanks!

Can't say for sure because I didn't apply to either this cycle, but last cycle both Maryland and UConn ended up sending decisions very late in the cycle. UConn was my very last R in like...mid-April?

Maryland is done interviewing according to someone on the school thread who called Admissions.

USCSOM Greenville had their final interview at first week of March and already sent out their official waitlist.

Wish they’d send out an email and not make people call. Professionalism right?😂🤦‍♂️

Definitely frustrating, especially since they wanted you to show you knew what professionalism was in their secondary.

Rs are forever and some schools will not release them until there is absolutely no possible chance that they might need to hold last minute interviews -- say, in the midst of a zombie apocalypse that decimates the incoming class just weeks before school starts.

Depending on how bad the zombie apocalypse gets, the original incoming class may be allowed to matriculate, and medical school is instead shortened to just include teaching proper streetside manners, neurology, and neurosurgery.

And lab skills like care and use of machine guns, rocket launchers and flame throwers.

But.... are they forever? I am pretty sure I remember one school two years ago rescinding Rs and replacing them with WLs a few weeks later, once they saw how crappy their yield was turning out to be. Really! Nobody ever reported whether one of those initial Rs ended up converting into an A, although I doubt it. But still, it happened.

Schools can absolutely do what they want. Stringing people along is just another prerogative of the sellers' market. That said, I honestly don't think we should be so offended. As obtuse as even I sometimes am, I'm pretty skilled at taking a hint after not hearing anything 6-8 MONTHS after submitting an application to anything.
