    Hi everyone,

    When do you think would be the earliest date to expect any interviews, considering the applicant has average DO acceptance stats, and he/she submits all his/her secondries by the last week of novermber?

    thanks!

    I got my secondaries in last month, and most schools say it takes between 2 to 4 weeks to review your file and make a decision, at which point they will either call you, email you or snail mail you an invite, a "hold" status, or a rejection. Even with average stats, you always have a shot if your loaded with involvement. Good luck

    Holiday seasons are upon us. Seems like some people are currently getting interviews about 3 weeks after being complete at some schools. Good luck.

    My exp would say that if your stats are avg, it is unlikely.
    However, you may have a chance at a late (by DO standards) interview after say Feb, in which case, they would simply be filling their alt. list.
    It is not out of the question.

    9, i think...

    Initially 5, then I decided to apply to a few more.

    I think late applications can have an impact on admission irrespective of MD or DO.
    I just hoep I dont have to pay the price.
