    2/16. Just got rejected from Temple MD yesterday, so it would be kind of nice to hear something positive from ACMS soon!

    Did you receive a "modified" date? (it's under the Apply Online tab)

    No. Not yet. It was last modified on 2/12 but I don’t think they had received everything until 2/20.
     
  8. It depends on the type of linkage! Some programs have special review linkages or guaranteed interview or an expedited application process. It varies!

    And from what they told me, now that I’m in only my performance in the program matters but I didn’t discuss it at length because I’m not sure if I want to link. so I would talk to them about that because BCHS is also different than ACHS since I’ve only taken a few of the classes and not all or most of them, nor have I ever taken the mcat. But it is definitely worth looking into!

    Contacted them and was told I’d hear back in 4-6 weeks. Not sure if I should mention I was complete in December. Nonetheless, patience is a virtue. So I’ll just wait it out.

    Got rejected 2 days ago too. 509 MCAT. 3.82 overall GPA, 3.77 sGPA. OOS applicant but go to school in Philly. Submitted 1/10/18 so I'm hoping to hear back something soon too. Last thing I saw on my application was that it was modified on 2/5.

    Damn, your stats are really good. Are you sure you want to drop $40k on this program? Did you contact Temple to ask them why you were rejected? Maybe it’s something that can be easily fixed and you could reapply without spending $40+.

    I'm thinking it's cuz it was my 3rd try that I got a 509. Also, a lot of people say to call the school after getting rejected. Do they really tell you why they rejected you?

    Yeah, most schools will tell you what you could improve. Maybe it was a third attempt MCAT or something else. Call them, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    Can anyone on this thread answer a few questions for me? I have been trying to contact this program with no success.
    -When calculating my sgpa. Should i add both undergrad and grad courses?
    Should i enter repeated courses twice like amcas? Lastly, can they count my grad gpa for the gpa requirement?

    What I would do is follow your AMCAS application identically if you can. If there are courses you took without them being on your AMCAS, then try to the best of your ability to determine if the classes you took are part of the BCPM. If you have some classes you’re on the fence about, post them or PM me and I’m sure this community has taken them and may have an answer.

    Also, I didn’t answer your other question specifically but yes, I would enter repeated courses twice. I’m not sure how to answer your grad GPA question but I assume it will be separate from your undergraduate GPA, mine was on AMCAS.

    Yeah it seems like a rolling admissions process. I am quite sad of course, but I know it’s very competitive so I just have to move on to other alternatives and hope things work out! Hope you all have better luck!

    Again, the CST program is different, however, that process was as seemingly random as this one. There were people on my interview day who hadn't even submitted the application. I got my interview scheduled before I submitted mine too. And then there were people who'd submitted back in like November/December (the interview was mid-late february). Idk how or why they do it like that. I suspect that when you submit your application doesn't have too much to do with when you interview. But perhaps ACMS/BCMS is different...

    How did they call people for interviews who didn't submit applications?

    They just emailed us. I literally got an email to schedule my interview before my application was submitted. I submitted it like a week later because I wanted them to have it when they interviewed me, but there were some people there who hadn't even done that. Im wondering if maybe the CST program just gets fewer applicants since (as I'm sure this thread has demonstrated) people don't know about/understand it very well so they just interview anyone who starts an application. Who knows?

    @Th3Accountant was applying to the BCMS program so they aren’t sending ACMS rejections at the moment.

    +2. Is this a plan A or B for you guys? I'm nervous I may have to commit to something else before hearing back from ACMS... :(

    Are you supposed to receive a complete email? I can't find my status on the online portal, but all of the items on the checklist have checks next to them

    I didn’t get an email saying it was complete. I emailed them and they said it was complete.

    @gringito on the top right, you'll see "apply" on your post-bacc app. Click on that and then a date will show right next to a link to your post-bacc app!

    I have to schedule through the portal, and the portal isn't working. So I'm going to call tomorrow and ask.

    So once you get on to the portal, where do you go to schedule your interview? I just activated my account and i don't see anything about scheduling an interview.. also the invitation was vague on how to do so.

    It'll show up in your task list a few hours later. I got the interview invite at 5PM, but the task wasn't added the task list (that little clip board icon) until I checked again at 10PM. I think it just takes time to update.
