    :) ...and I haven't even sent in a secondary yet. Does any school do this other than Michigan?

    I think in-staters above a certain cutoff (I heard 3.5/33) get automatic invitations -- but I'm not sure...anyone?

    Congrats aquapants....I know a few other schools give interview invitations before secondaries. The only one I know offhand other than Michigan is Vanderbilt, but I think maybe some school in Pennsylvania does as well.

    As for the cutoff thing with Michigan, I heard a similar rumor last year when I was applying. I'm not sure how hard-and-fast a rule it is, but I do know that of my friends, those of us that got 33 or higher on the MCAT got interviews, and those that got 32 or below did not. I think that's pretty shady, but I couldn't control it....whatever. Michigan missed a lot of good people with their cut-off.

    I got secondaries and a request for letters and picture. I wouldn't mind getting an invite before I send the secondary...

    When will the interview be? Do they give you a few dates to choose from?

    thanks all...

    mws99: they gave 6 dates, 3 in September and 3 in October, and I called today and they gave me the one I wanted (Sept. 20th).

    I still have to send in the secondary & recs & a photo before the interview happens, though.

    Last December, I received an interview invitation from Creighton before sending in my supplementary (with no ties whatsoever to the state or undergrad institution). I was surprised, but apparently it can happen. Also, Temple gave me an interview without checking my rec do NOT assume everything is in order just because of the invite!!!

    CONGRATS! (but be careful as well!) Some schools grant interviews to almost everyone in an effort to collect more $! Georgetown interviews TONS of people as well.
    I sent in $100 to Mount Sinai in NY, to "process" my secondary, only to be rejected a week later!!
  17. :laugh: kind of makes u wish they'd send the rejection letter on gold paper or something.!
