Yeah, the next round of "actual acceptances" is the end of March...but did anyone here recieve one from the January batch?PBMaxx said:I think the next round of "actual acceptances" is in mid-March.
How quickly does the ADCOM get back to you post-interview?
That's what I expected...But for some reason no one I know of has recieved the official yet from January. I know people that interviewed and recieved the AWPA in late November. Have you all sent in your updated GPA since last semester? I didn't and I'm thinking that may be why I haven't gotten anything yet. They might think I lost interest in them.Saluki04 said:Those who were officially accepted in the January meeting should have heard by now. I called the office and was told that "my status has not changed" (I am AWPA). I take that to mean that I was not accepted in Jan. I'll be waiting till early April, when they said the next round should be received.
NEATOMD said:As I understand it, you will always get the AWPA if you are going to be accepted. Not everyone gets an AWPA, as I understand it there are 4 categories (you won't know which one of the first two you are in). AWPA (priority admit), AWPA (delayed admit), waitlist, rejection. I could be wrong about that, though. Someone who went there told me this info. As you read in the AWPA letter (if you got one), your chances of recieving the actual acceptance are significantly high but not gauranteed.
I'm not sure... But for anyone wondering, I looked at the information I got last time I called SIU and the only time in March that the ADCOM will consider who to send actual acceptances to is March 29. Expect to hear within a week of that if you are in that set of students.PBMaxx said:Where does "ranked alternate" fit in to this scheme. I assume that it is a euphamism for "waitlist." The letter was dated 3/9, and I got it on the 12th.
Nope. Straight up waitlist ("ranked alternate"). I interviewed on Feb 7th.NEATOMD said:I'm not sure...

PBMaxx...Did you ever recieve an AWPA letter? When did you interview?

katiekate said:Hey Snoop. Are you going to attend SIU this year? I am thinking about deferring for a year, but I am soo excited and want to start school in August. If you are starting this fall, do you know anything about housing & finaid this late in the process? I have been a temp-to-hire at a biotech company on the east coast and have been offered an awesome full-time position making a decent salary. So many issues to consider and I only have another week left to make my ddecision. Seems that deferments are granted with good enough reasons. I just keep thinking...holy s#$^, I'm going to be a doctor!!!!
