SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
I submitted the large majority of my secondaries in early - mid July. When should I expect to hear back from schools?
So does applying early not necessarily mean your app will be reviewed/responded to quicker than someone who applies later in the cycle?I'm hoping I hear back at least by August of 2018 at this point
Honestly, I think it depends on the school. It will vary and you might not hear from some until the spring.
It means it will probably be looked at earlier, but it doesn't necessarily mean you will get a response earlier. You can, essentially, be placed on hold while they review other files before they decide what to do with you. And some schools don't outright reject until much later in the cycle.
Admissions is a stress-induced waiting game. Even if you are complete everywhere in July, you may hear from some schools quickly (i.e. getting interview invites in August and acceptances in October), hear later from other schools (interview invites in December, acceptances/waitlists in April), or hear nothing from them at all (but they thank you for the $$$ you paid for the secondaries).
Just sit back and let the cycle go in its own pace.
Will we get letters of rejection from all schools that do not accept us? Or will some of us be in the dreadful no-mans land through August of next year?
Unfortunately, not all schools send rejection letters. I forget which ones specifically, but every cycle has few schools that send no communication at all and you don't know whether you got rejected until you see on an SDN school thread saying all interviews have gone out already and the class is full.
schools that practice silent - Google-haku +rejections+site:forums.studentdoctor.netWe need to make a list
Patience is a virtue, the need for instant gratification is not.I submitted the large majority of my secondaries in early - mid July. When should I expect to hear back from schools? Thanks!
Emory does not it says nobody will be rejected during the cycle " All completed (AMCAS plus Supplemental) applications remain in review throughout the interview season. No completed applicant is rejected during the interview season."
Getting IIs in august is getting a quick response.
Haha I realize those were quick responses. That's not the point. I thought that most/all medical schools reviewed apps as they came in but the kind posters above explained that their own processes sort apps in different manners.
