MICHIGAN: EMU Inaugural Class of 2016

Recommended Posts

I can't recall if they said we'd know invite-rejection by Dec. 1, or by 'early December,' but one adcom member did say they probably would do the invites first, then the rejections.

I am pretty sure they told us invites will know "possibly by the end of November" rejections should be first week in December.  I still have not heard anything.  Has anyone else that also had an interview heard anything yet?

I was accepted today by phone around 2:30pm!!! :D They're giving 7 days from invitation to decision deadline. Good luck everyone!

I got a phone call at home as well, but I wasn't home to take it. Honestly, after rechecking the tuition and extra cost at EMU, I'm really, really bummed about the disparity between EMU and WSU. EMU is gonna charge $107,000 to out-of-state students, for example!!

They didn't leave a voicemail!? Call them back! The pricing is rather disappointing. I think it would be amazing to be one of only 20 students in a brand-spanking-new facility with super enthusiastic faculty and staff living their dreams, but I'll save over $12k by going with WSU.

They said they'd call me back tomorrow. I'm having the same thoughts. ... and it'll be more savings than that for me. ... around $26,000 less to go to WSU.

I've been offered by EMU! I have a difficult choice to make, even considering the cost difference. There are some huge, huge pros for me at both programs, and some big cons at both, as well. ... There is a reason why Wayne State's cost is so much less than everywhere else, and I'm trying to discern if the cost is worth the headaches. ...

The new facility should be nice, but if you've been accepted at school with a proven track record, logic dictates Eastern should be a back-up plan.  With Wayne State you have an excellent record, a medical campus adjacent to the largest collection of medical facilities in the state, and a very good reputation among area physicians.  Every program  states or implies they are outstanding, but without empirical evidence its difficult to judge. When you consider the cost comparison, I think the decision gets easier, unless you have some other compelling consideration you haven't mentioned.

I highly doubt anymore calls are going out.  My assumption would be that everyone was called on Monday which is why they gave 7 days for a decision to follow with their rejections in the first week of December as they stated in my interview.  I would think the only calls that will go out will possibly be to silent alternates in case some people choose to turn them down.  It's very disappointing I thought my interview went well, I have a pre-req gpa of 4.0, cum gpa 3.73, and over 25, 000 yes twenty-five thousand hours of direct patient and critical care and I did not get a call.  They stated the GRE scores played a very minimal role which my score could have been better.  To those that are still waiting good luck maybe you will be an alternate, everyone have a happy thanksgiving and merry christmas I am done checking these boards and waiting for my call will try again next year.

More calls will go out after next Wednesday if they don't have a full 20. We have until next Wednesday to give an answer. I assume they immediately call whomever is next on their list as they get a decline. Also, my GRE score was very average to below average (I think).

My hope is that there will be some overlap between the people who were offered spots at EMU, Wayne and Western. Hopefully, some additional spots will open up. 

 

In the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving!  Congratulations to those who received offers.

I was very fortunate to receive offers this cycle, but Eastern was not one of them.  I made the decision to commit elsewhere, but I was told today that they have not filled the spaces declined by others.  Having said that, I am sending them an email asking to remove me from the wait list to make room for someone else.  Best of luck to those waiting.

Hey all! I received a call last Monday for an offer and accepted last week. Anyone else out there?! I'm pumped about this program and eager to meet some fellow classmates! Anyone else out there? Only 20 of us! :-)

The post above yours ... they must have called more people after the first batch. I still find it very odd that not more than a person or two has posted here about getting in. Or am I overestimating the reach of these forums?

I was contacted on 11/25/13...which I believe was the first batch/day they started calling. Not sure if they've made more phone calls. But I see a few people on here have declined, so I'm sure they will!
