Question Prematch offer decision by program

Hi,
I have an interview for a prematch program in November. Could anyone tell me how long will they take to tell their decision about prematch offer after the interview? Thanks

Some programs offer it on the spot at the interview while other programs might call you after few days while other programs might call you a couple of weeks later.

Generally speaking November is rather late for a prematch offer. Are you sure that program is offering prematch?

Then presentation by a faculty member about the curriculum. After that, each of us interviewed by two faculty members. They asked me standard questions like why I am interested in there program, about the city, my hobbies, and also few medical questions. Then we toured the hospital with a resident, offered a free lunch and the day ended with noon conference. None of us were offered a prematch on that day and they didn't talk about when they would let us know about there decision. Hope this gives you an idea. I am eagerly waiting to hear from them
