CASPA submitted on 6/15, "Thank you for applying" email on 6/22, login credentials 6/27, interview invite 8/21. It's been a looong wait and this is the first program I have heard back from. I applied to 5 schools total, all in Texas. Hope that helps!

I got my interview invite for Sept. 16th this morning as well! I am super excited. I am a bit of a predicament though... I already had one scheduled that day for UNT. I like both schools, but I like UTSW more and would chose that one. Any suggestions? Should I try to reschedule UNT or do my top school (UTSW) at a later date?

I'm not sure how accommodating schools are about rescheduling, seems like it has its risk. That said if I was going to ask a school for a different date it wouldn't be my top choice.

@babyPA I would keep the interview for UTSW if that is the school that you would prefer to go to and see if the other school would accommodate changing the date of the interview. Good luck and what a huge accomplishment!

I suggest SW.... their presentation last week was professional but not stuffy.  They program stars are a mix of older professionals who help with research expertise and scholarly endeavors and younger - like in their 30s - professionals who are still working at the hospitals, along with surgeons who give lectures between surgeries - no, really.

UNT is an Osteopath medical center and many people look down on this practice as sort of folksy nonsense.  Just my thoughts.  Personally I will attend any school that accepts me, but given your choice I would go with SW

Really really enjoyable experience. Don't stress it at all. Was great meeting whoever I met from here! Done with this thread until I hear something.

^I second this. I absolutely loved EVERYTHING about this interview and MMI format. Everyone was right: you literally can't practice for this. As cliche as it sounds, BE YOURSELF. Seriously.

Hey guys,

For those who went to the Interview on Aug. 26th and hear something back I would appreciate it if you let the rest of us know. I will update as well if I hear something. 

Thanks.
