    Who all is applying?

    G'luck.

    @afuen031 Nice, I sent my supplemental in this past Saturday. Are you in-state or OOS?/What's your stats? (If you don't mind, of course).

    Bachelors of science in chem, how about you? I condensed the Extracurriculars lol, too long and I don't want to bore you. I don't think my chances are that high because I am out of state.

    Oh wow, that's incredible. If you have good EC's like I suspect you'll be fine. I think they accept some 30% OOS. I go to NC State (so, I'm in state). I have a 3.3 but I had a rough 2.5 freshman year haha. I have a 3.6 major GPA in biochemistry. My PCAT is 93 with a ton of EC and really good LORs.

    I'm applying from Texas! UNC is my top choice, but I don't have the best odds. My GPA is a 3.3 and my PCAT is a 96. I have two years of research experience, I'm a CPhT, and have a ton of leadership experience including a national leadership award. So at least I have that going for me! Maybe it'll make up for the low GPA.

    Well I certainly wouldn't count you out. Excellent PCAT and the CPhT is pretty clutch too. I almost applied to UT Austin this term from NC haha.

    @mjk2492 I have not. I'm presuming, given that the early consideration deadline is Oct. 1st, interview invites will be sent out after that. According to their website, interviews start in November.

    I haven't heard back yet either... I think they should send something by the end of the week. The website says mid-October.

    I emailed the admissions, just for peace of mind, and Mrs. Lewis said that first round interview invites would be sent out "within the next two weeks". That statement was made last Wednesday so we should start hearing back within the next seven days.

    The MMI sounds interesting... I wonder what sorts of questions and scenarios there will be. Like ethical, practical, or otherwise?

    That is an incredible PCAT - probably enough to get you an interview anywhere so congratulations on that. Although, I assume most applicants to UNC have strong PCATs. Either way congrats on the invite and good luck!

    It seems this way. I, along with other applicants stronger than myself that are all in state, have not heard back so it appears as if they're contacting OOS first? Can anyone confirm this? Regardless, good luck on your interview and hopefully I will being seeing you both next year.

    Granted, it does make sense to contact OOS early, as we definitely have to make travel plans.

    Hopefully everyone had a great time at Candidates Day! I was super impressed with the school and the schedule for the day. The interview was a little bit harder than anticipated, but I don't think it was too terrible. Hopefully we hear back in six days like people have from the first interview for the last two years! But does anyone else think it was odd that there were 84 people at the first interview date?

    I think I did terribly on the interview. Does anyone know how heavily interview is weighed on admissions?

    The website said that it is just as important as anything else in the admissions decision. The interviewers just seemed so stoic that it made a lot of people feel bad about it.

    I didn't feel like they were stoic at all. I have to admit though, I liked the MMI much more once I was done with it!

    Well, considering there were four sets of interviewers, their attitudes may have varied. I feel much better about things after the fact. I'm that person who replays every scenario in their head and thinks about how they could have done better.
