Have anyone been to the OHSU or UCLA interview yet?

For the UCLA they said to be there 9:45pm. What time did the day end? It didn't say and I know they don't like people calling them, so I just wanted to check w/ you people first. Same question for OHSU. OHSU asked me to check in at 7:45am though--not sure when the day ends though. And what's w/ the UCLA informal interview and/or tour? Does taht interview count even though its informal?

Do you mean 9:45 AM?

If they told you to be there at 9:45 AM, it means that your interview will be in the morning. I don't think that they'd make you come in so early for an afternoon interview. I interviewed in the afternoon, and they had me come in at 11:45. You'll have a tour at noon, which should last an hour. I'd say you'll be done between 1:00 and 2:00. If you're booking a flight, overestimate. Traffic in LA is unpredictable and usually pretty bad. :laugh:

I've never heard of "informal interviews" at UCLA, so it might be different for you.

Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions about UCLA! :) :thumbup:

Okay. That just means that you have the possibility of getting a student interview in addition to the faculty interview. Most people only get a faculty interview, though. They're just giving you a heads up. Most likely you'll have the tour, instead.

I had an interview at UCLA 2 weeks ago. My logistics:

Please arrive by 9:45AM. I arrived at 9:30AM and my interview began right away even though it was not supposed to start until ten. The interviews are 2hours long with one MD or PhD. I talked with a really great biochemistry PhD for 2 hours and it really felt like I knew him and he knew me by 12 when I finished. In the early batch that I was in, there was a 10 AM (myself) and a 1PM(another applicant) interview that both were scheduled to be 2 hours. 12-1 was a lunch and tour of the campus with 2 med students. THere was no financial aid or orientation. It was short and sweet and I was out the door before 2.

Later in the interview cycle they said they were going to be adding a 2nd interviewer, a med student, for each applicant to interview with. My interviewer told me that Jan 15 was the earliest one could hear of an acceptance to UCLA and stressed rejections will come out as early as tomorrow :).

Any questions about UCLA, Wake Forest, NYMC, Temple, or GWU....PM Me I'm more than glad to help...I've gotten so much from being a lurker on this site I figure I should give a little back :)

Congrats on all the interviews! :)

Just a note ... last year, the first post-interview news was acceptances (at the end of January). Post-interview rejections didn't happen until later.
