    Chances of Acceptance after Interview

    Advertisements



    Once you are given an interview and it goes pretty smoothy, why are chances of rejection? Has any applicants been rejected after being granted one? I haven't seen any cases searching this entire forum. Thanks!

    It depends on anything and everything, your gpa, essay, credit score for loans, any extra awards. But people do get rejected, not many but there are some.

    I have a bachelors in biology at a top 50 university with a 3.0 gpa, good LORS and volunteer & work experience in the medical field. The only thing holding me back are some low pre req grades, but I did good in my upper science courses.

    After all the problems that people have reported attending this school, you are trying to go there?
    Enjoy!

    Thank you! Do you happen to know what day the admissions committee usually meets? I heard since the semester was starting soon they would be meeting more frequently?

    If my application was turned in for review today (Monday) when do you think the admissions committee will decide? I would think by Friday if they meet at least once a week? I'm just anxious because I need to prepare everything I do decide to go September.
