Looks like tomorrow will be the big day. Good luck everyone!

I wanted to wish everyone who interviewed good luck! Everyone I met was a great candidate, and remember-- they wouldn't have offered you an interview if they didn't want you! 

Wishing everybody nothing but good vibes today~~

WOW! The level of the people applying here is intimidating. If these are the guys getting rejected, the rest of you must all have papers published.

I've spoken with several admissions people and students from prior years. OHSU is VERY holistic in its approach, while some of the normal stats we discuss here are graded/weighted, they still approach each application with how they best fit/future success (and they do look at ALL applications).

I do agree that they are looking for something very specific, so regardless of your high/low stats you can get accepted/rejected. I know that if your narratives (personal statement and supplemental questions) do not communicate your intentions, then it doesn't matter what your stats are. I applied last year with above average stats, but looking back at my personal statement and responses, they were terrible, plus I've gone through much more in that year. After working on them some time, it was only then that I felt like I actually have a shot. Although, I have only just reapplied a few weeks ago, so who knows what will happen🤷‍♂️

Good luck to everyone regardless of the outcome!!!

This was beyond informative!! thank you so much for sharing! This is really a wake up call for rechecking those "copy and paste" personal statements to make them above and beyond, for them already being so effortless (this is in my case).

Thank you! On the brighter side, got my first interview invite elsewhere earlier today so a bit of a rollercoaster today 🙃

Just got my rejection as well. I’m a little surprised because my LORs are from OHSU faculty members and I’m an OR resident as well. Good luck to those of you that are still in the running!!!

cGPA: 3.6

sGPA: 3.5

PCE: a little over 2k

 

That's too bad.

Same thing happened to me last year as well. It really shocked my PI's since they know what they wrote.

 

Good luck on the rest of your apps or if you decide to reapply like me😊

Seems like they are rejecting everyone before sending invites to interviews. it really makes this a very uneasy process, but yes, if someone can answer @mikedelta !! is it via email? 😮

For those with interviews/rejections, were you notified by email?

I'm not one of the people invited/rejected but I can confirm that all such communications are conducted via email. Email is the standard across all programs, with very few exceptions.
