CA, MEDEX Waitlisted: none Accepted/Attending: Loma Linda!!! Attempt: Second
  2. I was just about to ask the same thing! I have not received anything yet either but am patiently waiting. I feel like the acceptance isn't real until I can see it in writing with my own eyes lol
  3. I will be turning down my interview as I have been accepted to my top school! Good luck on your interviews everyone!!
  4. I JUST GOT THE CALL OF ACCEPTANCE! I can’t believe all of my hard work these past five years has finally paid off!!!! I am so excited & can’t wait to start this program. Can’t wait to meet everyone in the Class of 2022!!!!!
  5. Just received an invite to interview on Nov 22, 2019! I'll be coming from SoCal so if anyone wants to meet up the night before please let me know. Looking forward to meeting everyone! Good luck to everyone that has interviewed or preparing to interview!
  6. Just received an interview invite today via phone call and followed up with an email for Oct 22! This is my second interview after being waitlisted last cycle. Here's to staying hopeful! Good luck to everyone applying. *edit for anyone wondering: Submitted 6/13/19 and verified same day!
  7. I received an interview last cycle in February, I believe I was in the last interview session and submitted my application in August. So patience is definitely key! I was ultimately waitlisted and have just reapplied this cycle. My stats last cycle: Overall GPA: 3.34 Last 60 GPA: 3.6 BCP GPA: 3.43 PCE: 3150 hours Shadowing: 90 hours Volunteer: ~600 hours Wishing everyone luck this cycle! Be patient. I was losing hope last cycle and didn't expect to even get one interview but ended up receiving three (Jan, Feb, and March) !
  8. Congratulations! I'm hoping to receive the same call but for now, focused on completing and applying early to this upcoming application cycle *fingers crossed*
  9. I was unfortunately rejected and interviewed on 3/26 Congratulations to everyone else that was accepted this cycle! I am grateful to have even made it this far. It was definitely a great learning experience as Touro was the first MMI - Multiple Mini Interview (extremely intense) session I encountered this cycle. Will definitely prep better for that next cycle.
  10. Interviewed on 2/2 & have not heard a peep :- ( wondering if the class has been fully seated yet... or if anyone’s been put on a waitlist?
  11. Just received an invite to interview on 3/26! Excited to meet everyone there
  12. I just received an email stating the class is officially full & that I’ve been placed on the alternate list. Keeping my fingers crossed & hoping for the best but also taking this experience as an opportunity to better my application for next cycle! Congratulations to everyone accepted this cycle!!
  13. Someone I know spoke to the dean and said because there were so many interviews that day they’re still currently working on it! Stay positive!
