Let's assume a candidate with solid stats, ECs and LORs applies to about 20 schools that are within their range, and marked complete earlyish (mid to late july) at all of them.

When does one to begin to worry that they haven't heard any news? In other words, when do the majority of IIs go out that lead to acceptances? I've heard late interviews have a much lower yield.

Thanks for any input.

Definitely too early now, but what really can you do about it?

I would say that if you are really worried, you could late add some schools, but that would likely be a waste of money as you will hopefully/likely get in to your original 20.

I'd actually really like to know this as well-- it'd be nice to have a heads up on how to schedule things like time off work & budgeting depending on what comes back when. I do know that all of this is super subjective...but a premed can hope.
