Time Stamp: Feb 28, 1:44 pm EST (edit: put wrong time stamp)

Interview Date: March 24 (MD)

Result: Invite

wGPA: 3.95

MCAT: C/P 126; CARS 129; B/B 129; P/S 128 (512)

ECs: ~8 years research (7 publications, 2 first authors; conference; various research awards and scholarships), >5 years hospital volunteering, >4 years sighted guide, >2 years tutoring, student societies, hobbies: art, recreational sports, and long distance running

Essays: Okay, I guess. Was in the process of completing my master's so I did my best with the available time I had. Tried to hit all points.

Year: Completed Master's (grad stream)

Geography: OOP

Holy cow! Mind blown! I was prepared to wait til next week for the next wave and a likely rejection so definitely wasn't expecting this. I went through the RSVP form like a robot, hit enter, and then immediately forgot if I pressed "Yes" or "No" for interview availability confirmation (after some mild breathing exercises I started to recover my lost memories, and I am fairly certain I clicked "Yes" lol). Methinks they might have finished some of the grad stream reviews! All the best to everyone still waiting and good luck at the interviews for those who've heard back!

Do you mean more rejections?

Oh I meant less coming up than Vlad might be thinking, since some rejections have already passed in February. In other words, the rejections have not just begun. Say there are 1000 rejections total, we might be expecting 700 to be announced the following weeks instead of the full 1000. Just some encouragement to sit tight until the waves of regrets pass!
