Hi y’all. I just wanted to check in and see if anyone else has heard from Rush. I got my confirmation email form them on 5/22, so I’m coming up on 8 weeks. Has anyone else passed the 8 week mark without hearing anything from them?

I've passed the 8 week mark, I received the 8 week email 5/12, so I'm on week 9.

It took me 12 weeks to hear back last year

I was also confirmed on 5/22 and then they followed up with an email last month asking to clarify a pre req. After that it's been crickets.

Hi everyone-

I feel your pain in all the waiting, it’s truly a painful time! But keep your head up, there is hope!! Last year, I had my application submitted and verified by mid May and I didn’t hear back from Rush until the end of August. I didn’t think I would hear any positive news since it took so long to hear back, however, I got an interview for mid September and was accepted. I don’t go to Rush as I chose elsewhere, so I can’t speak of what they may currently be doing, but keep your head up! They’re usually pretty behind on applications! There’s still hope!! Good luck everyone!!

I was wondering— since the school doesn’t require the CASPer exam but only ‘encourages’ it are you guys going to take it still?

I took it for other schools, and rush wasn’t on the list of schools you could send to. They said they were working to add the school to the list, but i don’t know if they were ever added

Thanks for your input! Obviously the interviews will probably be different this time around but how was it when you had yours?

Their interview was one of my favorites! They provided you with very thought provoking scenarios and questions and wanted to genuinely get to know who you were aside from your statistics on your application. The questions and scenarios of the MMI interview were definitely ones you would not be able to prepare for, so they can see your true thought process, but they were not by any means things you wouldn't be able to speak on. I loved the MMI portion and thought it was actually really fun to put myself in those situations and explain how I handle them!

I just got an email that says I’ve been waitlisted for an interview. I feel like it’s basically a rejection
