Hey Albany med students...

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.

Hi guys,
Any of you hear about anyone getting off the "pre-interview hold" pile? I really wanted an interview there, and I have a family friend who goes there and she said I would love it. But I hear no one gets off the hold list. Should i even bother mailing in a letter of interest? I called admissions and they said they aren't accepting updates, but I'm not sure if I should go ahead and do it anyways since I have nothing to lose.

Any advice would help. Thanks.

I don't think albany has that much of a SDN presence. I've found the Albany Medical College Facebook group to be more sucessfull if you want to talk to them!

when I applied I was on the pre-interview hold pile and sent in updates and recieved an interview. It was not this late in the year though. I don't think it will hurt you to send new information, the worst thing that can happen is that they don't put it in your file.

Hi,
I heard that there were a lot more applications this year (about 9000), so if you were placed on a pre-interview hold, I would suggest that you hold on to other schools. We're approaching march, and I believe that many schools are close to filling their classes, but Albany Med do interview until april/may. Hopefully you already have acceptances/interviews elsewhere.

And yes, many are on facebook!

Good luck!

it's getting really late in the season but i would do whatever you can to show that you are interested. the admin here is pretty receptive.
