I sent mine in first week of July so that may be why they responded so fast. It does not hurt to shoot them an email

Hi. I submitted my application in July, but I didn't realize I needed to send in a copy of my Official Transcript until today. 
Does this mean I'm screwed? Everything else is in except for the transcript verification and I already paid to submit my application. It's status says "Received"

Hey Jess123, your official transcript is definitely required for all programs, and it takes over a week for CASPA to receive and verify. I'm not sure how it allowed you to submit without them..

Here is the help section on how to send them http://help.unicas.com:8888/caspaHelpPages/frequently-asked-questions/how-to-send-transcripts/sending-u-s-canadian-transcripts/index.html

I would contact MGH directly since you already applied, they will be able to tell you whether or not they will review your application. 

Good luck!

Got an interview for 11/4! This is my third time interview here, so hopefully 3rd time is the charm!


Nice!!! Were you waitlisted the past two times? Did they tell you what number on the waitlist you were?

The first time I got off the waitlist to interview and then was rejected. The second time (last year) I got waitlisted. They did not release the ranking of the waitlist.

They also only have 1 weekend of interviews and everyone finds out if they were invited or on the waitlist to interview and if you hear nothing, you were probably rejected but they send out decisions all on the same day so you just have to wait til then.

anyone that has already interviewed can you share any insight as to what we might expect?

It's exactly as it says in the email. 2 individual interviews (1 with a healthcare professional from the area and 1 with a faculty), a group exercise where they watch you solve a problem with your group, an easy writing sample that was straight forward last year (about your healthcare experience), and a Q and A with current students. Nothing crazy.

I think they did a complete review and are just sending out their decisions now.  I'm guessing some have gotten acceptances and may decline the interview because they told me to keep a couple dates open. Always gotta stay optimistic!
