    Hello All,

    I am a Canadian applicant and I will be applying to US med schools (the one's with rolling admissions) this summer as I am taking MCAT in April. My question is: If a person applies as soon as the applications become available (early June)...how soon these schools conduct interviews for these early applicants? Do they have the interviews during the summer JULY/AUGUST or after SEPTEMBER? Does anyone have an idea.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You!

    I submitted my AMCAS the first day I could and most secondaries as soon as I got them (within a day or two). I had my first interview the third week of August, then had several in September, then several more in October/November.

    Interviews range typically from September to March. Why would you limit yourself to applying only to rolling schools? Some of the best schools are non-rolling specifically because they are the best schools.

    thanks guys! I am not limiting myself to schools with rolling admissions. I am still going to apply to other schools. I was just asking because the schools with rolling admissions probably have the earliest interviews and I wanted to know how early so I can make travel plans.

    yeah, some schools are organized enough to have interviews as early as august, but many don't even start interviewing till about sept. or early october.

    I am canadian applicant too. Also applied really early. My first interview was at UVM :love: on Sept 12th. I had 5 in Oct, and a bunch in nov/dec which i cancelled.

    Anyways, if you submit that early you will get interviews sometime in sept, but majority will be in early Oct till early Nov. I think another benefit of applying early is you find out if you got accepted early also. Once I was accepted to UVM (early nov), I didnt bother going to about 4 other interviews. I loved the school and I wanted to save money :)
