Interview process change

Standardized invitation and acceptances

The SAU will once again implement a standardized format for the extension and acceptance of interview offers.

On Friday, Oct. 22, interview offers will be extended by all programs participating in the match. Programs are prohibited from offering interviews before this date. Programs must also release their waitlist and rejection notifications to applicants on this date.

On Monday, Oct. 25, students will be able to contact each program accepting or declining each of these offers. Students are prohibited from contacting programs before this date. Programs may then send additional invitations to students on their waitlist after reviewing their acceptance and rejection responses.

On Tuesday, Oct. 26 "Flush Day," students may release previously accepted interview slots in favor of any invitations offered to them off a waitlist. After Flush Day, all interview acceptances are final and must be honored by the student. No cancellations are permitted by either party. More information on this process will be provided by the SAU at a later date.
