    Slightly confused. The MSTP is the MD program right? Same thing?

    MSTP means Medical Scientist Training Program and it culminates in a MD/PhD

    What does a typical day look like for first year students? Is it like lectures in the morning and study time in the afternoon?

    Did you ever send them a letter of interest/intent? Have you been updating them? I did not receive the "still interested" email, and I am wondering if that's because I sent my most recent LOI less than a week ago.

    On most days you can set your own schedule because lectures are recorded. Today for example we had two morning lectures and the afternoon is free, but you can watch the lectures at any time. Or not watch them. The next few days we have one required class each day and a lecture or two.

    From ~Nov-Mar though, we had anatomy which was a little over 2 hours in the lab every day. Before that we spent (less) time in lab for histology.

    Yeah, 6 months of patience/zen master training. Einstein was my first interview offer so I'll always have a soft spot for them. I'll be going to an in-state school next year. Best of luck to everyone.

    It's 5 days for now until sometime in July when it becomes 2 days. The exact time frames and dates when it changes from 5 days to 2 days are listed on their website.

    Is anyone aware of when we actually have to be on campus and move into housing? I want to travel but need to get the timeline correct.

    I don't qualify for the biochem course, so does that mean that I don't need to be there until August 14th (MD Orientation)?

    I got accepted today too. Off the "Status update" waitlist email back in Feb. I got a "are you still interested email" and sent a second letter of interest then. 2 days later (today) I was accepted. For those of you who will ask.

    * I am going to matriculate here unless Mayo AZ snags me along the way. Highly unlikely, though.

    Congrats to all who were accepted yesterday!

    If I didn't make it off the wait list yet, have my chances dropped to very, very slim, or do you think there'll still be another big batch of acceptances going out?

    Also, is anybody planning on withdrawing their acceptance?

    One more thing: has anybody called admissions to express interest? If so, what'd you say when you called?

    At this point, I recommend writing a letter of intent rather than calling to express interest. They do seem receptive to letters. I was recently accepted off of the waitlist, but will have to compare financial aid offers and costs of living before making a final decision. Hope a spot opens up for you.

    Congratulations on your acceptance!

    I have written multiple Letters of Intent, which is why I am wondering if I should try something different. Until now, I have been sending my letters to admissions. Do you think I should send one directly to Dean Kerrigan? Is she receptive to LOIs?

    Also, I am working on one large research project this entire year, so there's not much to update about, which makes it difficult to write additional letters. Any ideas?

    Lastly, would you mind sharing what's the other school you're deciding between? Just curious :)
