do you remember how long they said it would be? I can't remember if it was 4-8 or 8-10 weeks. I guess they are working backwards in making decisions?

I thought they said 4-6 at the 8/3 interview. Haha I kind of hope they are working backwards since we were in the first interview group so we may still have a chance...butttt that would mean we'll have to keep waiting lol

I have my interview coming up in a few weeks. Would anybody be willing to give some insight on what theirs was like? Like many of you, this is my first MMI and I'm not sure what to expect

It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. It was my first MMI as well. I really liked that you essentially start over between the stations. The faculty and staff were all very nice and really made me feel comfortable. I would say just practice timing answers to MMI sample questions, that's really all you can do to prepare. 

The school is nice, great location, and the current students we talked to were very helpful. You'll enjoy the experience!

Anyone else dying a little on the inside waiting to hear back about their decision after the interview? They really seem to be pushing the 4-8 weeks thing to the max haha.

Congrats everyone!! Has anyone been notified of waitlist?

Have not been notified if I have been waitlisted or rejected. I interviewed on 9/19. How about you?

I think rejections are only sent out via mail. But does anyone know about the waitlist? is it via mail or email?

At our interview they said waitlist would be notified by email.

At my interview they said the portal would change to reflect if you are rejected, accepted or waitlisted. Does anyone see a change that hasn’t been notified of acceptance?

I just interviewed on September 21st and received an email yesterday that I was accepted!

GPA: 3.9

GRE: 321 (163 verbal, 158 quantitative, 4.5 writing)

I also had no patient care experience and only 8 hours of shadowing experience if anyone else is in a similar situation, it doesn't automatically count you out! Good luck to everyone

I interviewed on 9/21 as well, received an acceptance email yesterday and a call today!! For those who are wondering, they said we would hear back about 4-10 weeks after the interview. So don't lose hope, the wait will be worth it! 

Good luck to everyone!

Can anyone tell me what the time limit is for the MMI format? This is my first MMI and any info would be helpful! Are the questions more commonly asked questions or scenarios?

7-8 minutes for the time limit. They have both style of questions. Trust me, there are no right or wrong answers, just stay honest!

If I haven't heard anything and other people have been accepted from my interview group should I assume that I am getting a rejection in the mail? 

When did you interview?

9/21. But I assume that if I was on the waitlist I would see a change in my portal. But since rejections are by mail it would take longer to get it.
