MEDEX Applicants 2016-2017

Recommended Posts

I got the call today!!!! Congrats to everyone who made it, it really is a life changing event.

 

To those who didn't get the call: Don't...Ever...Give..Up. If this is the program you want to be a part of, stay persistent. It took me 3 tries. This program is looking for more than grades and experience. They look at your heart and motivations. Best of wishes to everyone!

You got in! That's great, man. I'm Michael. We sat at the table and talked throughout the day. Excited to meet everyone in Seattle next year! Be sure to join the FB group.

My only hope is for a Seattle interview (probably January) - has anyone been invited to a January interview yet? 

My academic and clinical prereqs were confirmed on Sep 26th - pretty late in the application cycle. I applied to MEDEX Seattle only and haven't heard anything yet. Friend told me applicants went from 1000 last year to 2200 this year, so I'd expect it's gonna take a while before I hear anything. Hope this gives some comfort! haha. It's not over 'til it's over.

For those that got interviews and accepted/not accepted (why, if not). Could you post some of your stats so myself and others could see how competitive we would be applying for this program? It would be super helpful for myself and most likely a lot of others, so we could save time and money if we don't fit the mold. I really do appreciate your time and thank you. Good luck everyone.

I know it is a bummer now. But, you'll do what you have to do, to make it happen next year. But, may I ask...what do you think was something you need to work on for next cycle? Pretty much, why do you think you did not get in?

Maybe my clinical hrs? I had 3,000 which I know there are plenty of applicants out there with an exponential amount greater than mine. Maybe not as many volunteer hours even though I had over 200 hours. My current grades are great but my overall gpa was low do to my young-dumb adolescent years of school. Those are guesses, I just know I gotta keep my head down and stay in the grind. It's not a matter of if I get in, it's a matter of when. I'm in it to win it

Unfortunately, this year I was not chosen to interview. I am more determined than ever to work on improving my application for the next cycle. Good luck to everyone who was accepted, and congratulations on your tremendous accomplishment!

I wasn't chosen for the interview either. It was a bummer but I wasn't confident with my application in the first place. Weirdly, I'm excited for the upcoming application cycle because I know where I need to make the improvements (turn in my application much earlier and improve my GRE score).

 

Congratulations to all those who got accepted!! This is an unforgettable milestone. Hope to experience that feeling next year :)

How do you know you weren't chosen for interview - isn't there one more in January? Have the invites for that one been sent?

They sent out rejection letters for the cycle, and my friend that also applied got an email stating if she had not received anything yet then she is still under consideration for one of their interviews in January, and if selected will be notified 3 weeks prior to the interview.

Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted!  I just received an invitation to interview in Seattle on January 19th.  Anyone else interviewing then?  I would love to connect before then.

I also received an invite to interview the 19th in Seattle. I am thinking of starting a new thread for the people invited to this interview to see about meeting the day before and become acquainted. Perhaps an informal meet and greet at a local coffee shop or cafe.

I also have an interview for Jan. 19th :)

 

Coffee shop or cafe sounds great. I'll make time for a meet and greet, not farmiliar with the general area. I'll be driving up from Lacey. Any suggestions?

for those of you that received invites for Seattle interview (CONGRATS!) when did MEDEX receive your application? Mine was held up at CASPA and got there really late. I am wondering if mine has even been reviewed yet (beyond the "you meet the qualification" review).

My application didn't get there until September, a few weeks before the deadline (initial review completed 09/19, I believe), and I was interviewed/accepted for the Seattle class last month.
