Hello everyone,

I just wanted to create a thread and see who else is applying to Thomas Jefferson. When did you submit your application? My application was received 6/23/13 and is currently under review.

My application went with the first mailing. I got a confirmation e-mail, but that's all.

Same here, did the people with interviews get a confirmation email from the program?

Does that mean you got an interview invite without filling out a supplemental application?

Not according to their website. I'm wondering if the supplemental app is a recent addition because I don't remember there being one last I checked.

http://www.jefferson...tant/apply.html

"Follow instructions to complete the supplemental application according to the e-mail Jefferson will send after receiving your CASPA application.
After you have completed the CASPA application, Jefferson will email you a link to the supplemental application along with a login ID to access the application. You will receive a second, separate email with your PIN.
You must include your CASPA ID number and the date you completed the CASPA application on the Jefferson application.
The $25 supplemental application fee must be paid with a credit card."

I also received an invitation but I did not have to submit any supplemental application. If you login to your CASPA> Application > My programs There is a "NO" under tab of Supplemental Supplication. THAT IS SUPER WEIRD.

I'm assuming that those who submitted early didn't have to do a supplemental app. I submitted towards the end of July. I called the admissions office and verified that they do indeed have a supplemental app. They said that they are in the process of downloading applicant info and that emails will be sent out shortly.

I thought it was great! The faculty was very nice and made us feel comfortable. I liked that the school felt like it was in its own little niche in the middle of a busy city. Definitely not a school that you would want to bring your car to- seems like public transportation or bicycle is the quickest way to get places! Loved it!

How was the interview? Did they mention anything about when you will hear back from them?

It went well, pretty normal interview. Everyone will do fine with it.

I don't think they even really knew when they'd be getting back to us. We were told they would start making decisions after the 1st month of interviews, in October. And then we were told we would start to hear in the beginning of November. It's up in the air and a mystery to all!
