    have any of you guys who received an initial NJIT interview gotten notice back on the second stage of the BS/MD process? (meaning, the interview with the medical school?)

    also, i believe the lady you're referring to is dr. katia passerini(:

    @shadow522, yes that was her thanks! :)
    And you get the interview notification for the medical school much much later. around march if i'm not mistaken; it's a long process :l Did you have your interview already?

    @greensage ah, ok. Thanks(: yeah, I had my interview by phone bc I'm not from the new jersey area. I was asking around and a student from my school frm the class of 2013 said the same about no njms notification until several months later. Its annoying to have to wait that long aha.
    Jw, I've never asked to be chanced by others on a forum and at this point in the game I was wondering whether or not its worth posting stats and asking to be chanced? Since all of the bs-md applications are pretty much in already anyways.

    I guess you could if you'd like to! :) At this point, everyone's calling it crap shoot lol it's like "good luck, friends" hunger games med school style.

    I just got my notification from penn state bs/md for an interview at Jefferson. 😄😄

    How did they notify? e-mail? phone? USPS?
  • asapaj5asapaj5 Registered User Posts: 32 Junior Member
    I saw the notification when I logged on to mypennstate. Under application status it should say "We will be notifying Jefferson Medical College of your candidacy, and they will be in contact with you regarding an interview at Jefferson. If you are not selected for this specific program within the Eberly College of Science, you will be considered for general admission to the Eberly College of Science instead."

    oh gosh. the nervousness is starting up with interview notifications going out! They do it in batches, right? I didn't get anything on that yet.
  • MedicalBoyMedicalBoy Registered User Posts: 826 Member
    Asapaj5, I don't think that is an interview notification. It says that Jefferson Med will contact you regarding your interview, which mean they will decide if you get an interview or not.

    It is pretty early to get some interview notifications. Most come out mid-December on. But correct me if I'm wrong...

    Methinx Jefferson interviews all of the candidates sent up to the mountain by Penn State as they have first discretion....Methinx asapaj5 will be interviewed! Just sayin what methinx!
  • asapaj5asapaj5 Registered User Posts: 32 Junior Member
    @GreenSage im not sure if they do it in batches but i applied a month earlier than the deadline so that might be why i got it already.

    @MedicalBoy i saw some interview notifications from last year on the 2013 thread and it seems like this status means that Jefferson is going to email me the date and time of the interview maybe next month. And i applied pretty early for this program so that might be why i already got a notification.
  • MedicalBoyMedicalBoy Registered User Posts: 826 Member
    Yeah that might be it. I applied around 10 days before the deadline.

    I'm both terrified and excited for these interview notifications. Its going to be hectic Jan-April with all these interviews.
  • MedicalBoyMedicalBoy Registered User Posts: 826 Member
    Yeah I just saw some posts from last year.

    Congrats asapaj5!
  • GreenSageGreenSage Registered User Posts: 320 Member
    @asapaj5 congrats!! :D

    @MedicalBoy, you're right, they told us interview notifications will be going out mid-december so we're heading there and they're expected. And oh hectic it will be! O.o are you interested in any of the programs in particular at all?
