  1. South has a very relaxed interview style. They really do their best at trying to make everyone feel comfortable! The first day you will be able to meet a lot of the faculty and spend some time with student ambassadors. Take advantage of this time to ask questions and make connections with everybody that you can. The interview day did a morning group and evening group then each of those were broken down into smaller groups of 6 (if i'm remembering correctly). You will have 2 one-on-one interviews with faculty members and they genuinely try to make the process feel like a conversation. They are honestly wanting to get to know you! They use behavioral style questions, so basically they ask about experiences. Something that helped me prepare for that was just having a handful of good/bad experiences in mind that I could mold to a specific question. With that being said, don't get freaked out if they ask you something that you don't know how to answer right away! I had to ask my interviewer to give me a second to gather my thoughts because one of the questions took me off guard! The group/panel interview consisted of a faculty member and the medical director and they went down the line asking us all the same questions. Don't let that sound too daunting.... they were personal-type questions like tell me about yourself, so it's not answers that people can steal! South is a very tight-knit and friendly community that really cares about their students. Be yourself BUT also professional! I stayed in an AirBnB and just rented a single room because that was the cheapest option. There are tons of AirBnBs in the area! There is a lot of shopping right next to South (it's located on mall blvd if you haven't noticed that yet!!) and the downtown area is gorgeous!
  2. I just contacted Duke to ask about my application status. They said that it has been reviewed and they are not finished interviewing so I will receive a decision within the next "few weeks or so" .... I'm not getting my hopes up quite yet but at least it's not a denial yet LOL
  3. Has anybody been accepted off of the active list yet? Does anybody know if they start accepting off the active list at a certain period of time during the cycle?
  4. I still haven't heard back from the 9/17 interview. I'm becoming a little worried now. I'm thinking about checking in with them at the end of next week. Has anybody else not heard anything back from that interview day??

  6. I just got my rejection email. This was my first rejection and of course this was my top-choice.... bummer! Good luck to those of you who received interviews!! I'm wishing the best for all of you guys!
  7. Yeah, i'm not sure if that will be the case this year or not. Last year they had two rounds of interviews as to where this year they are only doing one round of interviews. Who knows! I'm hoping we will know by the end of the week because last year they sent out interviews 3 weeks prior to the interview. My nerves are killing me!!
  8. Could you send the release form to me as well? I never received that form from them and I interview on Friday (unless the hurricane causes a cancellation lol)!
  9. I just received an interview for Sep. 6th! Super late notice so i'm assuming somebody cancelled theirs.
  10. It ties for my second choice school! My first choice is UNC Chapel Hill. South and ECU are tied as my second choice schools. I have an interview coming up for ECU in a couple weeks, so we will see how that goes. I really fell in love with the program at South, though! I'm from North Carolina! South is the only out of state school I applied to.
  11. I got the call today accepting me into the program! I interviewed August 13-14
