2021-2022 Application Cycle


Recommended Posts

@FuturePA1223@stat1177 I feel like with rolling admissions, no news after your 8 weeks is good news! Easier said than felt... but your application is probably competitive so they don't want to cut you off then decide they want to interview you. Trying to find a little sunshine- keep the faith!

@FuturePA1223@stat1177 I feel like with rolling admissions, no news after your 6 weeks is good news! Easier said than felt... but your application is probably competitive so they don't want to cut you off then decide they want to interview you. Trying to find a little sunshine- keep the faith!

Thanks for the encouragement:)

I just got an invite for an interview! The interview is on November 3rd!

I got an email saying that my biochem class wasn't sufficient enough for them, so I told them I will take it in the fall and they confirmed this and said my application was complete on 6/14, so exactly 6 weeks!

Received an email that I've been placed on an interview waitlist. This is the first admissions decision that I've received this cycle and I won't lie, it's pretty discouraging even though it's not an outright rejection!

I can relate; I got put on an interview waitlist for RF

This is in response to those who got put on the interview waitlist.  I am just guessing here but I don't think those are ranked like when being put on the waitlist after interviewing.  I am guessing they compare each application to each new ones that come in but I could be totally wrong on this, it's just a guess.

I'm a reapplicant this cycle, app verified 5/10, and no word from Rush as of today

My app was verified 6/11 and I haven’t heard yet either. Odd that people who submitted after or around the same time as us have heard already.

for what it's worth, my first correspondence with Rush last year was well after the 10 week mark and it was an interview invite...
