    Wait time after interview? Worried! Help!

    Advertisements



    I'm applying for fall quarter. I was interviewd last Friday. My file was turned into admissions for review this Monday. I just called the New York office today (Friday) and they said it is still under review.

    For those that were accepted how long was the wait after your interview? Is there any correlation to acceptance and wait time at all? I'm getting nervous especially because the quarter starts so soon.

    My stats:

    B.S. Biology from a Top 40 University
    cGPA ~3.04
    sGPA ~2.6

    2 really good LORs from doctors when I worked as a medical assistant for over a year.

    1+ yr volunteer experience at hospital

    pre-med club, biology club, etc other extracurriculars

    My interview went pretty well. Interviewer did say my pre-req was a little lower than normal, so I had a chance of being put in pre med 4/extended if I don't get into med1, but to be hopeful.

    Any input guys?

    I fell into a similar category with my gpa, and my interviewer called me to see if i was interested in the pre-med enhancement. I don't know the complete details about this program, I think its something like maintain 3.0 gpa and take some additional classes, just follow through with med 1. Anyways, yesterday I was called by another student coordinator saying that I was enlisted in some classes. So i figure I got accepted. You should call back to the administration offices to see where you stand. On occasion their servers are down, but they should have a response back to you relatively soon.

    You should really consider taking the MCAT (if you haven't already). The MCAT could save you thousands of dollars and several months of pre-med courses. Do well on the MCAT and your sGPA wont look as bad.

    Thank you jonnykigz for the response, it's greatly appreciated! When did you interview and how long after the interview did you're interviewer call you? The interviewer told me it would take 3 weeks max for a response. Thanks again!

    I think it took about 3 weeks for me. My interview went well, I was more than prepared for it. I was unnecessarily going over stuff about HMO and PPO, ethics and etc etc. My interviewer was very friendly.
    If anything, you should probably get a response quicker than I did. Especially because it's nearing September. If you are able to, just call the administrative office everyday. Who knows, maybe you have already been assigned to classes and you just don't know about it. Thats what happened to me yesterday. One of the student coordinators called me and told me i'm in a bunch of classes. Was news to me, didn't know I was accepted. They told me the letter was sent today.

    This is promising news for me. This is great information, I'll definitely be following up with them on Monday. If you don't mind asking what was your overall and science gpa?
