@GCStudent Any insights into when interview invites are going out and dates of interviews?

If I knew I was allowed to talk about it, I would! I know how stressful this period of time is for everyone! I was in your shoes last year! You can do it, you can get through it. 

Make sure you are taking time for you during this stressful time!

It wasn't phrased rudely. I'm summarizing. It was in a longer discussion. She wasn't rude about it, just honest (which I DO appreciate!!!)

Yes I agree, I have been able to speak to both Erin and Angie at WSU a few times and they are both honest and helpful. I think their transparency can come off harsh but is really meant to be beneficial for us applicants. :) they definitely want everyone who works hard to get spots in GC programs. You can tell how much they love the field and how much work they put in for the future GCs out there-the process is just painful.

Do most schools send out emails for rejections/interviews or do they call? 

All of my interviews have been e-mail and all of my rejections have been snail mail.

I've been told most rejections come via email, and for U of M and Wayne, at least last year, it looks like emails were sent out for rejections :/ The wait's been killing me. U of M gave calls for interviews last year and Wayne gave emails

Does anyone know where all KGI's rotations will be? I'm listening to their prospective student recording thing from last week and it gives more clarity, but not an extensive amount?

I went to their visitation day and they will be pretty scattered among LA and Orange County as well as the inland empire. It can be the hospitals or laboratories in these areas. Expect 1.5 hour drive to some rotations

Does anyone know how many people UAMS is interviewing?

UAMS is a school that interviews all complete applications. That being said they have on their website that they received 30-40 applications annually

I just checked VCU's website and it says interview offers will be made by the end of February, so I wouldn't say there's a need to call them yet! :rolleyes:
