Does anyone know how many they interview?

I saw the class size is 50, but wasn't sure how many enroll.

I read that they interview around 300!

I'm hoping that there is some type of chronological order of sending out interview invites. Many who were verified 5/22 got an invite, then 5/26 verifications, then someone verified 5/29. I was verified 6/2 so maybe they're getting to that date of submissions? Idk... I could just be overthinking.

I received confirmation on 5/26 also but haven't heard anything yet so hoping there is a little less formality of it being completely chronological since it seems those who received confirmation on 5/26 heard back yesterday.

It's all just a big waiting game so I think I'm just anxious that's all.

Likewise, I checked last years thread and sometimes people applied earlier and got invited four weeks later?

Received interview invite today. For those who were also invited, did you respond to the email acknowledging receipt or is it alright not to respond. Wasn’t sure the right thing to do. Thanks

Hi! Just curious. Did any of you receive a confirmation email that they were reviewing your application materials? Or just a confirmation that they had received the supplemental? I submitted my app May 28th so I'm a little worried.

I received both. But email on 6/2 saying my app was under review by admissions.

Hmm. Should I email the program? Or wait longer?

I say email them. They’re already extending invites so just make sure they have everything they need from you

Just got rejected, a little bummed as this one of my top program choices because of their focus on diversity in healthcare.  Since I am sure people will ask, stats below:

cGPA 3.81

sGPA 3.84

PCE: 1000 hours (PT aide, clinical Research)

Research 1500+ hours (including 400 at the NIH with publication)

Volunteer: 350 hours w/ 150 hours pursuing public health education w/ low SES high school students

Shadowing: 150 hours (Neonatology MD, Pediatric Infectious Disease MD, Physical Medicine & Rehab MD) -- I assume a weakness here is my lack of solely PA shadowing while I did have a few opportunities to shadow a case or two with a PA

Extra-curricular: NCAA DI Athlete (training 20+ hours a week while pursuing college degree)

Wow you definitely seem more than qualified to receive an interview. When did you apply? Were your LORS strong?

I received confirmation from Rutgers 5/26. I had 5 LORs: A PT who I worked with and have known through the community for years who spoke to my ability to work with patients, my research mentor from the NIH who spoke to my ability to overcome fears/challenges of working with animal models, 2 professors who have known for 4 years, and my team doctor who has known me for 3+ years and I shadowed multiple times in his clinic and learned how to practice medicine in a state heavily affected by the opioid crisis. Obviously I never saw any of the letters, so I cannot attest to how "strong" they were, but I am confident in my relationships with my letter writers.
