I've been pretty set on applying to IU early decision program, but I've been told that I should still meet with their admissions office and they can give me a good idea of whether its smart to put all my eggs in one basket or not. I'm just wondering what I should be expecting for when I do meet with them or how I'm supposed to go about it. What should I have prepared for the meeting? Will I just be telling them my scores and stats and they'll be like yes apply or no don't apply? Should I just straight up ask them if they think it's wise for me to apply ED or what? I'm not really sure how a meeting like this goes.

They will look at your grades and MCAT to see whether you are statistically as good as their average student. They will talk with you and look at your activities to assess mission fit, and how they think you will fit in with the other students.

So does that mean I need to have my activities and PS done? And my transcript ready?

Have your app written and proofread. Treat this like an interview- be prepared to answer "Why medicine?" and "Why our school?"

That being said, if you were meeting my admissions office, this wouldn't be a test. It would literally just be to help you. I'm not sure how common that is though, we're a LOT friendlier/etc than many other med schools, it's part of our branding. This might just be a weirdly-labelled interview, I have no idea
