  1. Somebody called the school to confirm; it's not a false alarm. If it said congratulations, you're in!
  2. EVMS covers a lot of ground pre-interview between the Casper and supplemental essays. The interview might actually be weighed a little less here compared to elsewhere (and I'm interested to see what they ask; I felt like I was asked a bunch of Casper questions in my other interview earlier this cycle). But like virtually everyone who's been accepted will probably tell you, try not to think about it and just be yourself. Getting an interview at all is huge considering how competitive the process is!
  3. Thanks for posting this; I might've missed it since it wasn't from EVMS' email. I might be able to make the Saturday meeting but if I do I'll have to join from work (so no drinks for me sadly). Still, looking forward to meeting some of you!
  4. I also have a [new] interview invite, so it looks like 2nd round went out at 7pm last night!
  5. Sorry if this is a bit morbid but have there been any all-out rejections yet? Or is this an "everybody gets to wait and see" situation?
  6. Hi all, Summary: Has anyone had success reapplying to schools after a mediocre interview? Does the interview rejection hurt my reapplication more than if they'd never interviewed me? Details: I was granted an interview at a couple programs this cycle and got waitlisted at one, rejected from the other. I love the program I was rejected from and - pending a miracle on that waitlist - I was thinking of reapplying next cycle. I wouldn't say I botched the interview; it just wasn't great overall, and I definitely would take a mulligan on one of the questions. But with my lower academic measurables I think I needed to do exceptionally well to get over the top. I'm taking more classes, shadowing more, writing a new personal essay, etc. And working on my interview skills. I do plan on asking the program for specific feedback but haven't done so yet (I just have their generic, "congrats on getting an interview, but try again" rejection email for the moment). I'd be extremely grateful to any admissions professionals or faculty willing to weigh in (if any see this). Thanks in advance!
  7. If anybody else lurking around the forum is scheduled for tomorrow's interview session and wants to meet up in Winchester tonight, shoot me a message!
  8. So this is an assumption based on my experience last round, but from what I can tell the program keeps all of the apps they recieve open and on file until they officially fill every seat in the class. I didn't get an official rejection until their interviews closed in February. I'm in the same boat as you this round as well, so the only conclusion I can draw is that my application has [so far] rated lower than all the candidates they've reviewed and offered interviews to. So, we're still in it, technically. But being passed up for 2 or 3 interview rounds doesn't strike me as a good sign
  9. Welp, I'm a July baby with no offer, so ya'll probably won't be seeing me at Drexel next year. On the bright side, I have a couple interviews elsewhere. Good luck to you and everyone else that's still in it!
  10. For all those invited to the 10/31 interview, when did the program mark your app 'received'? Same question for the November interview group if those invites have gone out yet...
  11. Thanks for posting your metrics. We're pretty similar (I didn't get my application done until the end of June though, so I haven't heard anything). If you don't mind my asking, were you told anything special regarding your essay or anything else? I'm basically looking for what else my programs are looking for outside of my (not-so-great) GPA. Thanks, and congrats!
  12. Also on the waitlist, which surprised me because I applied SUPER last minute. Considering this was my first glimmer of hope in my second cycle, I'm pretty excited just to make somebody's list. Good luck everyone!
  13. Mind telling me when your application went into "in review" status? I was a slightly later applicant, so I'm still waiting to hear back. Thanks!
