    why does everyone always think I'm a guy? anyways, yeah I'm probably going to the lunch. haha well with my garlic breath I'd just breath on you and knock you out just before your interview...

    so how did everyone's interviews go?
  • asterstarasterstar Registered User Posts: 603 Member
    it went pretty well. It was much more open-ended and informal than I thought it would be, at least comparing to another interview that I've had. The program seems awesome: I think the students said there was a 90% match with top three residency choices, and all the students were very grounded and easy going- as well they should be, with no MCAT and just a 3.3 GPA requirement.

    *Crossing fingers*

    how about you, rehan?

    Edit: A mom of an applicant there told me that 600 people apply, and 60 are interviewed (which is also a stat that I've heard elsewhere on this board). There are about 20 people in the first year in the program, so I'm guessing that about 25-30 are admitted each year. So...a tentative 50% acceptance rate after interviews.

    I heard from the secretary of the med. school admissions office that 63 got interviews and that 20-22 of us will get in, which is 1/3 of us!
  • rehanrehan Registered User Posts: 90 Junior Member
    those odds are not bad at all. I would be so excited if I got in. My interview went well, but Im not sure how it gauges with everyone else's. Is the interview the only determining factor at this point? When I went on the 14th, there were only 3 other students who got interviewed, and as a whole they didnt seem very social, but maybe they interviewed well.

    Does anyone know when GW notifies the interviewed? I asked at the GW admissions office and they said around late March, but I'm not quite sure if that means next week, or the following week. I do remember them saying that decisions would not be finalized until all interviews are done and they can review all applicants basically against each other. So my second questions is: Have they finished the interviews? Thanks.
  • buckwaldbuckwald Registered User Posts: 333 Member
    I interviewed on the last date which was February 28th. I think it's the last week of March we find out. Good luck!
  • Sholefs860Sholefs860 Registered User Posts: 82 Junior Member
    Does that mean the very last week? Do you know how they inform us? Is it by email or regular mail?

    How does GW's combined program compare with some of the other programs that have been discussed on this forum?
