  • Brief Profile: applied mstp OOS. applied md-only in-state. if theres one thing ive realized, its that interviews dont matter....atleast for md/phds or maybe for mds too but i cant attest to that entirely. anyways the reason i say that is because mstp interviews can do one of 2 things: 1) confirm that u actually know ur research and 2) confirm that u dont know shit and ur talk about being a scientist is just limited to whats written on ur application. based on my admissions cycle so far, ive realized that the interviews play a very minimal role. all the adcoms eventually go back to ur primary app and look at ur essays (especially ur research essay). i made the mistake of not having all my results written down (which i honestly think would have gotten me more interviews or atleast acceptances) due to political reasons in the lab of not sharing results between people working on the same fu**in project. also i had a summer research experience and altho i mentioned that i was going to participate in this summer program i couldnt write anything about it cuz i applied early in june. altho i mentioned this experience in my secondary apps, i dont think schools cared that much. so in retrospect, what i should have done is wait to submit my primary later so that i could have written that experience down too. ive worked quite hard in college to get where i am today....and to not have a good admissions cycle cuz of all this bs is pretty hard to bear. but such is life and it sux so ill have to play along with this game and hope that i can be the best i can be wherever i land up.
