Hey just wondering if anyone knew if Loyola's class is filled yet or if they are still interviewing for spots. I havent heard anything from them yet and sent in my app in November. Just wondering if i should be waiting with hope or just waiting.

I interviewed there two weeks ago and they told me flat out that because it is so late in the cycle, they dont have many spots left. BUT they also told us that more than 1/3 of the class got in off of the waitlist last year.

The adcom meets today actually, and letters go out tomorrow, so a new batch of files should start going through soon.

That's really annoying if they have stopped interviewing- I want my money back!! I submitted my secondary by the Dec 8th deadline, and when I called on Thursday, I was told that I haven't been reviewed yet.

They are interviewing until the end of April I think. So around one more month left for invites.

I am not sure when they stop interviewing but there were a few last year that interviewed in late March and got in off the waitlist. That is the latest I have heard of. I am supposed to hear this week also, I interviewed on 2/10.

i think this year's m1 class was the first class that had straight-up acceptances held until the end of the interview season. there might not be many left, but there is still hope. and yeah, they will still be interviewing for a while yet. there's a handful of people interviewing each day this week still.

so the person who interviewed there most recently, you think that they dont have many spots left, but if you are on the waitlist then perhaps you have a shot? Im guessing if i dont hear anything by march then thats about it?​

When I was there on 2/10 they said that there were spots available and that some of us would be outright accepted. I do think they are few though. The waitlist in past years has had good movement, so yes I do think those on a waitlist have a good shot.

I got an interview invite on President's day last year, interviewed on Feb 26. I was placed on the alternate list and did get accepted on June 5. I know plenty of people who got in off the waitlist, and I know one person who interviewed in April and got into Loyola this year.

I am a M1 at Loyola now so if there are any other questions just ask.

Will they send letters regarding ANY decision, including waitlist, or just a letter for the acceptance :luck:

From what they told us it was all decisions; we would hear either way (accept/waitlist/reject) this week sometime. But I was sick the day of the interview and couldn't hear in my right ear so I could be wrong!

how long after the adcom meeting did you receive a phone call? the day after? a few days after?

and how long after the meeting did you receive the letter (i know this is somewhat dependent on how far you live from chicago) - do they mail them out the next day?

I interviewed in early March and they give out a date that your file will be decided (waitlist, accept, reject) by.

i just interviewed a couple of days ago, and while they told us the exact date of the admissions committee meeting where our file would be decided on, i was just wondering how long AFTER that date past applicants heard their decisions definitively.

they said there were definitely still spots available in the class and they are doing things differently this year in order to ensure there are still direct acceptances available until the very last interview day

I called today and they said that my application has been reviewed by the committee, and it has been flagged for further review before the end of this month. Is this what people were told when they were put on hold pre-interview or is this something different?

I'm not sure it would even be worth taking an interview even if I got one at the end of March. It seems like everyone's interviewing for waitlists at this point. :(

Yep...I was complete a little less than two months ago.:eek:

U?

I was complete on 1/25. I imagine once they have handed out an acceptance for each spot in their class that they will rank their waitlist. In other words if you do end up interviewing late and getting on the waitlist, the timeline of your application wont matter. If you're better than the first guy who got on the waitlist way back when, you'll probably be higher than him on the list. With that said, good luck :luck:

i was just there about a week ago, and they (both my interviewer and Dr. Norstrom-the dean of admissions) said that while there are limited spots left for direct acceptance that yes, over a third of the class (which is increasing by 5 spots next year to 145) got in from the waitlist..

oh and i almost forgot, the adcom is meeting next monday (3/26) to decide the fates of the past few weeks interviews-its seems like they do it in big bunches rather than every week, Dr. Norstrom said we'd have letters sent out the following day of the decisions that had been made...

So they are sitting down to talk about the people who have interviewed there already or to go over the stack of applicants that haven't received an interview invite yet?

My AMCAS was verified nine days after you (11-29), and the secondary was received/sent/complete on 12-23/1-9/1-25. Unless you received and sent your secondary very late, then you are being notified way later than I was about completion.

Hey guys, I know that they fill up their class pretty much by December/January, and people withdraw and they are able to accept more people, automatically and off the waiting list.

I will be withdrawing from there soon, so another spot will free up for you guys. *yay*:p
