Class of 2019 Hopefuls

Recommended Posts

Do you know when interviews are given out?

The past 2015 thread indicated that calls were made out regarding interviews in early March (the 4th to be exact), so it looks like it will be a while before we get any news.

Any recommendations for me? I am currently taking a few courses just to keep up with my studies. I currently work at the hospital, volunteer, and am prepping for a mission trip in December. 


 


Please feel free to give me any tough love!


 


Thanks!

Hi all! I'm a PA student at Detroit Mercy, feel free to email me (murawsjn@udmercy.edu) or Snapchat me @jamienicole3x or Reddit PM @jamienicole3x if you have any questions. [i was also accepted to GVSU (that's my alma mater for my Bachelor's)].

 

Good luck to you all, and most importantly... enjoy the wait! You won't hear anything at all from UDM until March or so. Then it's pretty quick, you'll have an admissions decision by April!

Hi Jamie! 

I was wondering if you knew how many total interviews they do? Also, if this is all on one date or multiple?

I actually missed the call and got s voicemail but yes, with very little information. She made it sound like we would get something in the mail though so maybe more info that way?

Would somebody who's a little more "Facebook savvy" want to make a group? I know there's a "class of 2019" page already but that's the three year students from the 2018 class
