Hello all~

 

Wondering when the start date is for the Atlanta campus? The app does not close until March 1st so I am slightly confused about people saying see you in January.

Help me please!!

Thanks Y'all!

@jk1040 So you may be thinking of South College Atlanta instead of South University in Savannah. They have a forum for South College Atlanta as well!

I gave up my seat last week so that will open up a spot! This was a VERY tough decision. Good luck to everyone!

Has anyone that was placed on the waitlist been accepted?

I have not! I’m patiently hoping and waiting. 🙂

Yes, me too. Quite disheartening since I interviewed back in June and rather than pull from the waitlist seems like they keep scheduling more interview sessions.

I agree. It seems that they have done that every other year as well though! A current student at my session said he got pulled in October from the waitlist and last year’s forum it seems like people got pulled in November, too.

Does anyone know if they’re still calling people for interviews? I applied July 3rd and have not received a denial or invitation for interview. 😞

Following. Me too!

Hi everyone! I have an interview on Oct 29&30 but when she sent my individual agenda it only had activities on the 30th. Is there events I should attend on the 29th? The sample schedule she sent at first had events both days!

Received an interview invite for November 7th/8th. I’m currently in Japan so time zones are wacky but I believe they sent it to me on the 28th.

Received an interview invite for 11/7-11/8. Email says seats are almost filled and that statistically speaking, even if interviews are successful, we'll likely get waitlisted🤨. The numbers aren't that convincing, but I guess I'll take a chance and roll the dice.

I just received an interview invite for 11/12 and 13. I am hopeful like @PandaLe that a successful interview does not result in being waitlisted. This program would be awesome to be accepted to. Thankful for the opportunity!

Btw, does anyone have any tips for the interview? Such as tips on questions, the amount of people you interview with, how many people are in your group, the number of people on the panel, where to stay or things to do while in Savannah, etc.

South has a very relaxed interview style. They really do their best at trying to make everyone feel comfortable! The first day you will be able to meet a lot of the faculty and spend some time with student ambassadors. Take advantage of this time to ask questions and make connections with everybody that you can. The interview day did a morning group and evening group then each of those were broken down into smaller groups of 6 (if i'm remembering correctly). You will have 2 one-on-one interviews with faculty members and they genuinely try to make the process feel like a conversation. They are honestly wanting to get to know you! They use behavioral style questions, so basically they ask about experiences. Something that helped me prepare for that was just having a handful of good/bad experiences in mind that I could mold to a specific question. With that being said, don't get freaked out if they ask you something that you don't know how to answer right away! I had to ask my interviewer to give me a second to gather my thoughts because one of the questions took me off guard! The group/panel interview consisted of a faculty member and the medical director and they went down the line asking us all the same questions. Don't let that sound too daunting.... they were personal-type questions like tell me about yourself, so it's not answers that people can steal! South is a very tight-knit and friendly community that really cares about their students. Be yourself BUT also professional! 🙂 

I stayed in an AirBnB and just rented a single room because that was the cheapest option. There are tons of AirBnBs in the area! There is a lot of shopping right next to South (it's located on mall blvd if you haven't noticed that yet!!) and the downtown area is gorgeous!

Thank you for the advice. It was really helpful 😀. During an interview for another school last month, I met someone who interviewed at South University in July but was waitlisted and never heard back from them. I am hoping that I hear back within 1-2 weeks given that the start date is in January and being accepted would mean I'd have to do some serious planning.
