Has anyone heard anything from UTK? I'm starting to get anxious, since interviews are supposed to take place next week and I haven't heard anything from them lately. :confused:

That's right Hiatus, they don't send out interview notifications until the first week of March. They guy I spoke to said don't worrry if you don't get it until the second week. Doesn't give people much time to book a flight does it?

Don't panic just yet though, the letters will be coming.

Was that your specified method of contact on your application? Also, are you in state or out of state?

If you go to the teaching hospital section of the website, they almost always have information for clients, including area hotels.

For example, for UT:

Interview on 3/13 notified on the 1st.

Is UT conducting interviews all week? I have 2 finals on the 12th and I really need to reschedule my interview?? I left a message with the school on friday, they were gone for the weekend, so I haven't heard back yet.

I am a little confused, because on the UT website it says (and has since applications were due) that they were conducting interviews March 20-24 and everyone on here so far have their interviews the week before that. I still have yet to hear back from them either way and its getting to be short notice. (not to mention I scheduled myself to be out of the country months ago from March 11-18 b/c I thought interviews were the week after)

The info on the website was for 2006, not 2007. I guess last year they had interviews over those days, but this year it's different and they didn't update their webpage.

Hey guys, I'm from Knoxville, so if you have any questions about the city, or general questions about the school, or whatever, feel free to PM me.

Good luck on your interviews!!

Do we know for sure whether the interviews are open or closed file? I read the feedback and it seemed like they clicked open, then wrote closed in the write up.

I just had my interview today and they had my file in front of them, but they are not given any GPAs because they are worried about bias.

Thanks for the info! It really helps to prepare - whether you're giving the "we're clueless" version, or rehashing/elaborating on a story they already have a sense of.

Not a darn thing. Re-read the papers they gave us on interview day. Seems like they mean to mail the letters by 4/1..so who knows when we will actually hear from them. :eek:

What were y'alls GPA and GRE scores? (if you don't mind me asking.) I am looking at applying here for the 2008 cycle. Also, were any of you TN residents?

I am currently waiting for a response as an in-state applicant, but I made it through the to the interview, so hopefully, I'll be helpful. I have a GRE score of 750Q, 630V and 4.5 A. My GPA is on the lower side at 3.37. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them.

On another note, I called UTK today to get a copy of my application (VMCAS already cleared them) and they sent out the letters yesterday, so be expecting them soon.
