People that will vote, will answer when did they get more of their interviews so far.. September or October... so I think you should ask the seniors at from your medschool

That's not true, some programs have not even sent interviews yet (small amount), and the programs that started sending, not all of them are finished giving interviews. Plus by november and december applicants start cancelling interviews.. so they send them to other people, and in January a lot of applicants will cancel interviews. So be patient, I know it's hard. But have faith. And start practicing your interview skills, so by the time you get more interviews you'll be ready.
