  1. I hope you guys are as excited as I am to get the ball rolling for your incoming class! Thought I'd let those of you who follow this thread know that we are assigning mentors/mentees this weekend, will have a facebook page up and running, and you'll receive info about spirit wear & scrub ordering all this month ?
  2. Calls began this afternoon, takes awhile to get through everyone. Don't lose hope ?
  3. Thank you! Best of luck to you too, your stats looked great so I hope you get an interview. We have 20 IU grads in our class!
  4. Well best of luck to you this round! Yes I am an Indiana resident, IU was also my alma mater so I really wanted to attend this program. My favorite part so far is anatomy dissections (cadaver labs are invaluable) and the small class size (44 students). We all constantly study together, help each other with study resources, and spend our weekends hanging out--we try to have a social event once a weekend to unwind, whether that's grabbing dinner, seeing a movie, or celebrating after exams ?
  5. Communication with the program via email takes awhile, I'd suggest just calling for a confirmation that they have everything (Thats what I did) I received an email that my application was complete on August 29th, even though I submitted everything on July 4th. So it took awhile to hear back. Then invites were sent out on Sept. 22 Interviews were Oct. 16-17 (they are the 15th & 16th this year) Acceptances were sent on Oct 20 Hope that eases some anxiety ?
  6. Hi Guys! I'm a current 1st year student here. If you have any questions feel free to message me. Best of luck to all of you this cycle!
  7. My options were Nov 16, dec 8, and January 12th Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. After FIVE months hearing nothing, I received an invite to interview today for Nov. 17th. However, I've already been accepted to and paid deposit at another program I loved. Kinda disappointed it took this long to hear back and can't make up my mind if I should accept the invite yet.

  12. Congrats!!! So happy for you, I know how long you waited to hear! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I received a "confirmation" email that just said thanks for replying and there would be more info coming soon about the interview day. From current students I've heard they interview ~120 between the two interview days. Not sure how many are in each session but there is no group portion and it's just a 2:1 panel with admissions committee members. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
