I submitted back in mid-June and they just got back to me on Friday 9/29. I wasn't able to make the 11/3 interview date so I emailed them and they said I could come for the last interview date, which is 11/17. I did not receive a waitlist email of any kind. Hope that helps!

from the 9/29 interview!!! anyone else?? this is Macy, for those I got to meet on Friday!

How was the interview?? What was their MMI process like? It seems every school does it a bit differently. I'm interviewing 10/13 and am overly anxious!

So does that mean they'll likely not be pulling from their interview wait list at this point???

Hello all,

 I was scheduled to interview at Rush on the 13th, however I was recently accepted to another program. I emailed Rush to decline the offer and I hope that they invite another candidate to take my interview spot.

For all of you on the waitlist, don't lose hope! There will always be people who decline interview invitations or acceptances, and to reiterate from my previous post about the online information session: Rush is expecting to continue interviews through November.

For another dose of hope: a second one of my coworkers was accepted 1.5 weeks before the start of her top choice program :o

 

Good luck to you all :)

Nope, they told me not to expect any update until the new year. Which doesn't surprise me as I think their last interviews are end of this year.

 Rush emailed me saying they received/verified my application June 23. Got an interview invite Aug 16.

I was really surprised that I got interviews in the first place because my stats are below average. cGPA 3.2, sGPA 3.3, PCE: 3000ish. However, I am involved with many extracurriculars and hold leadership positions in most of them. That might've made me stand out. This makes me believe they look at applications rather holistically. :)

I watched some videos on youtube just to get an idea of how to think through MMI questions before I interviewed. The best advice I got from a friend was not to jump to a conclusion right away even if the question seems to have an obvious answer. Stop, think, and consider all of the options. They are assessing your ability to reason through a problem, so explain your reasoning, pros/cons of different solutions. The other thing I feel worth mentioning is that the MMI interviewers don't interact with you much and stay pretty non-expressive, they really leave you to talk, either by yourself or with a partner. Good luck! The interview was fun and laid back in my opinion.

For those of you wondering I am on an interview waitlist as well and still have not heard anything. Has anyone from this list received an interview?

I just contacted the admissions department. They only have two more interview dates left. The waitlist is based on when you applied, she did tell me that they are going to contact two people from that list since two seats opened up.

Thanks for this info! It is interesting that they gave you such specifics because each time I have contacted them the answers seem pretty generalized. Do you know if they already sent out invites for those two interviews that are left?

This was my first time calling them. I'm not sure why they gave me all this info but I basically think I'm not going to get an interview here. I think they have sent out the invites already. She told me since I'm a first time applicant it may take me a second try to actually get an interview invite.

I just spoke to admissions and she stated that they have 2 more interview dates, November 3 and November 17. She said that the invites for November 17 will be sent out today or tomorrow and that no one has declined the interview for November 3 as of yet. She stated that once people decline the interviews, they will take people off the interview waitlist and that the closer to the interview date it is, they usually only call people from the Midwest within a 7hr driving radius as it is easier for them to make the interview date.

So I wouldn't give up hope until mid November!
