    I have it written down that interviews were conducting March 13-17th last year. So, maybe they are setting up interviews the same week that they actually are? I was expecting to hear back from them by the end of this week.

    @setu26 did Morehouse Project IMHOTEP email you back? I also haven't heard anything about a interview so I'm worried. Do you know if they do silent rejections?

    I also applied to most of those programs & haven’t heard back except from MCHC Rise up. Which site did you apply to? I applied to the South Dakota one & they reached out to me with an interview recently, maybe they’re still working through the applications?

    Hey guys, just wanted to let you know so you don't keep waiting, I got an email last Friday from UCLA saying I got an interview. They are being conducted this week. I also applied to Columbia but haven't heard anything yet. I know both programs are doing silent rejections though. I am hoping that you are all correct in that Columbia has been pushed back a week or two! Anyways good luck to all you guys & appreciate this thread! Wishing the best.

    Thanks for the info! I know Columbia's FAQ page says all selection decisions will be posted no later than March 12th via the online application, so it does seem like they're a bit behind.

    I just called Columbia and they said they will let us know about interviews by March 23. Final decisions a week or two later. They are behind in the review process. If you don't hear from them by then, they said you have not been selected to move further.

    I applied to Project Imhotep, Columbia, MCHC/Rise up at KKI, UCLA, and FPHLP. I got an interview for Project Imhotep and FPHLP. I haven’t heard back from the others and I’m extremely nervous.

    I haven't heard back from Project IMHOTEP. When did you receive an email regarding interviews? Did they call you or send you an email?

    Hey everyone. I have also applied to both Morehouse programs IMHOTEP and PHLFP. I did not receive any notifications of any interviews or anything but a few weeks ago I emailed the coordinator Jamie Clayton and she/he told me that decisions would be made mid-march. I attached the emails. Best of luck to everyone.

    Hey everyone :) Jumping in her a bit late, but I applied to UM-SEP, UM FPHLP, and Columba SPHSP. I was rejected from UM-SEP in late February, haven't heard anything from Columba SPHSP yet, but just got an interview for FPHLP this morning.

    Wishing everyone good luck, so anxious!

    Okay, finally bothered columbia this morning. The woman I spoke to was very nice. She said we would be notified about the interviews next monday, the 26th, because they're very understaffed... Guess we'll just have to keep playing the waiting game!

    I do not. I heard it was supposed to be today. They told me mid-March but did not give me an exact date or time. Did you have an interview?

    No worries. I’ve seen some people say they had interviews and others say they did not. Not sure how that works or if they do silent rejections, I didn’t receive an interview either so we’re in the same boat. Best of luck to you!!!

    Hey all! I have received an email regarding the Columbia University SPHSP about an hour and a half ago with the option to schedule a 15 minute phone interview for Monday, March the 26th. Definitely check your emails.

    For anyone waiting for a response from Morehouse IMHOTEP, check your spam folder. That's where I found the email they sent today.....

    Do y'all think they will keep sending invites through today and tomorrow?
    I'm crossing my fingers since that invite was for Monday, that they send invites for Tuesday Wednesday since its usually several days of interviews.

    I was thinking the same thing. I cant imagine theyll do 100 interviews in one day.

    I called Columbia today and the lady I spoke to said that if you didn’t get and email this week about interviews it pretty much means they have decided not to move forward with your application.

    Haven't heard anything from Columbia either, hopes are low. For those of you who applied to FPHLP at UMich though, I got an email decision this morning!

    I'm sure regardless what happens, we'll all find something amazing to do this summer :)

    I got into FPHLP! So I'm not entirely sure what they're doing in regards to rejections etc.
