Hi!

I haven't gotten clear answers on this through search, so I figured I'd post a new thread.
I submitted both AMCAS and TMDSAS (I'm a TX resident) June 1st and was complete second week of June. I submitted all my secondaries for TX by end of June and AMCAS by mid July.

I have three interview invites (I've already interviewed at one Texas school, but I haven't heard from any other texas schools) and I've gotten three rejections. When can I anticipate any other interview invites to keep coming? I just don't know the timeframe for interviews at all, so it's not necessarily that I'm panicking or thinking that my chances are shot because I know it's early, I'm just wondering about a timeframe.

My LizzyM is a 68.5.

Thanks so much! :)

Probably depends a lot on the school. Some places start interviewing in July, others not until October. Some start accepting in October, some not until March. I imagine the % interviews left depends a lot on how each school structures their cycle.

Three interviews by Sept is great though!

I can only speak for one school but the invites go out in waves over >5 months. Keep in mind that 25% of all the applications arrive on Day 1. The schools may hold back and make interview invitations 4-6 weeks before the interview itself rather than booking months in advance when circumstances could change requiring rescheduling.

I'm pretty much in the same boat. Complete mid-June, Texas resident, same LizzyM and only 2 II. I was honestly expecting 1-2 more but I guess we just need to be patient :/

The mechanics of the admissions process
1) all parts of application are received and file is marked complete
2) applications parts are sent to readers for evaluation and scoring; consider this your priority number
3) applications are sent reviewed by committee by for II typically in order of the priority number

Thus applications are not necessarily reviewed and/or invited for interviews in chronological order (see my posts below)
