Hi all, I was given an update on applications. They will continue to interview about 120 more students before the end of the year and possibly continue in Jan. They have made approximately 70 offers,

Hi, I’m a current student and was told by one of the professors that they have interviewed 120 people and have offered seats to 50 (there are typically 70 seats, but we started with 72 in our class). 

Accepted off the pending-open seat list today! 🙂

For those of you who have already submitted the secondary app, how long were your essays? Did you use the entire 500 word count, or would shorter and to the point be okay?

My first essay was 400 words and my second essay was 495 words. Don't know if less or more is better, but maybe someone else can chime in about that! good luck ?

Oh wow now I feel like I wasnt detailed enough! Both my essays were around 250ish words each. I never know with these secondary questions if you are suppose to use all the words or just a paragraph

I honestly don't think it matters how many words you write, it's more about the content.

This was what I was going with as well! But my first essay was an accident. I thought I had 500 characters, probably because the personal statement was based on character count, and when I typed it into the application, it said I had like 300 words left! But I personally think my essay was good as well as concise; I just wanted to see what everyone else's thoughts were! Thanks for your input!

Both of mine were right around 500 words, I felt like I needed all of that writing to elaborate on my points and be as convincing as I could have been

Hi Everyone!!  I am reaching out to just see how many schools you all applied to?  Also, I am really getting anxious and wanting to hear about interviews, not sure how you all feel, but I think it's just a mix of excitement and also nerves.  Hope you all are having a good summer!

Well congrats on getting your supplemental application in!  I would say go back and look at your CASPA and double check that they are all complete and that you have the LOR's that they want from you as well.  If you have that, then I would think that there is some problem with the transfer process.  It sounds weird, but I would get going to make sure you don't get stuck and slowed down because of that .

All of min LORs fit the bill... one MD (who is also a supervisor), another MD and two NPs. Final is from my grad school prof/advisor.

Did yours transfer over right away? The email says it can take two weeks to process... I know I’m a little late and I’m just a little nervous about everything getting over to them quick enough.

When I submitted my application through CASPA, it said your application will not be complete and verified until the school identifies that they have all the pieces that they need, but I am pretty sure my letter's of Rec processed over with everything else in my application.  The process might take two weeks and that is just part of the waiting game here.  I think if you are really stuck up on this, then maybe call CASPA or the school.

For those of you who have submitted a secondary application have you heard anything back so far? any interview invites yet?

Nothing yet! Just got an email from their diversity department thanking me for applying. From my understanding, we should be hearing about invites and denials by the first week in July at the earliest.

I had the same thing happen. My CASPA was verified 6/13 and I submitted my supplemental today (6/27). I just gave them a call and it sounds like they don't process your application until they receive the supplemental so it'll take up to two more weeks for them to verify that they received the LORs. She did say that if we submitted them through CASPA that it should be fine. Otherwise, they will let us know in an email. Hope this helps!
