    Interview Invite 9/30
    Interview Day 10/9

    I just cannot express in enough words how excited I am!!!I want to go to this school so much. I really hope the adcom likes me! Good luck to everybody. I hope you guys all get in a medical school of your choice!!!

    I got in at 2:35 am on October 16th!!! Is it really happening? I woke up in the middle of the night to check my email and saw the 'Congratulations' letter! I pinched myself several times to make sure i am not dreaming...and then a few more times in the morning!
    I absolutely love the school and staff! I am so grateful to the school and everybody who has been supporting me all this time. I will work real hard to make UMC proud of me!

    Good Luck to everybody!

    The interview process was not stressful as much as I expected, even though I was still quite nervous and excityed throughout the interview rounds. It is a very new experience to me. I like the school and the staff, the admissions committee members are very helpful and understanding! If you deserve it-you will get in! I really hope I do... The results should be known by the end of this week(10/16).
