Im OOS with 29R and 3.8 GPA

I've been waiting for quite some time. I have an interview at Michigan State soon and was wondering if I should call Wayne to ask if they are going to offer me an interview since I will be in the area?

What do you guys think?

Conventional wisdom seems to be that Wayne is interviewing candidates with MCAT scores in the 28-29 range, currently. But that appears to be in-staters, from everything I read.

I don't blame you for wanting to coordinate your interviews for the sake of travel, though I doubt that Wayne will try to make any particular special accomodations. As nice as they are, I think it will likely be difficult for them to arrange that for you with the number of applications they have to look over.

I got accepted out of state and my gpa is lower but my mcat is higher. I think it just depends. Also they have entire interview days devoted to out of staters. Everyone on my interview day was OOS. Just be patient but do realize the standards are higher for out of staters, at least according to the student I stayed with at Wayne.

Would just like to clarify that it's not just instaters, just in case that information is somehow valuable :)

How did you manage to get an interview at MSU as an out of state student? You must have said primary care at every other word in your PS. Other than that, it's worth a try to give them a call, but unless soon is at least a few weeks away it may be difficult for you to get all of the paperwork. For Wayne you may need a higher MCAT than that since you are OOS to be a shoe in for an interview, but it's quite possible.

i would contact them since you are swinging by the area (maybe dont specifically tell them that you are having an interview in the area). its getting sort of late in the season, desperation knows no bounds.

Yep.. Rejected Post Secondary as well. I love how they say that we're a great applicant because we received their secondary. I didn't turn in their secondary on time.. Oh well.. Definitely not a dream school.
