Yes, Professor Forest called me last night, but I'm still waiting on the email confirmation and everything.

Congratulations! I think we were in the same group. I was the male. Do you work in Mission?

For those that have received an interview invite when did you submit your application?

Just because someone else asked me the same thing, I have it in front of me: Submitted night of June 19th (received confirmation email June 20th), invite received August 12th.

Congratulations!! It's probably a good sign about your competitiveness for their program that you heard back so quickly!

Just received my acceptance from Dr. Forest. I am beyond thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to attend this amazing program! I didn’t think I did well in my interview nor did I think I was what they would look for in PCE, but they saw my potential and journey, so excited to be a part of this!!!!

I interviewed 9/6 am. 

Congrats! do you know if they’ve sent out all the acceptances yet?

shadowing : ~150 

age: 27 

graduated undergrad with a 2.7 C.GPA , spent the past several years doing a post bacc taking classes at community college. Didn’t come from a science background , so I had to take all those science classes which helped bump my gpa.

Do you all think that all the admitted students have been contacted by now? I know it might be too soon because calls started Wednesday, but I feel incredibly anxious!

I encourage you all to be patient because it was only six days ago that the last interview was done. It was said by Dr. Forrest said that the admissions notifications would be completed after about two to three weeks.

Just want to check, I heard Dr. Forest say the decisions would be out within 2 weeks. Did you hear the decision would be 2 -3 weeks from the interview date?  Thank you!
