    Is there any correlation between how someone thinks an interview went and school's decision?

    I thought mine went pretty well. My interviewer and I got along well, suggesting to me at least that it was a matter of fit.

    My interview was horrible. Interviewer attempted to cut me off multiples times throughout the interview, rushed to the end of it, and was visibly put off when I told her that the company I work for outsources labor.

    Then again, my Rochester interview could not have gone better in my eyes and I ended up waitlisted.

    I feel like all bets are off this late in the game. No matter when they actually get around to informing us, they HAVE to know what our decisions will be.

    I still can't believe they haven't give a decision to everyone post interview, be it acceptance waitlist or rejected so late in the game. It's leaving a very sour taste in my mouth as I wait. Tells me the Einstein has no respect for it applicants! Makes me despise this place :yeahright:

    the question being, for those who would hear back on/after traffic day, can one be silently waitlisted?

    From past years when you get your financial aid package it comes with a scholarship around $12,000. They also offer the research and fellowship award that I have seen range from 10K -30k. This is from my SDN research

    Interviewed early march. Just got the HPWL email

    Maybe this will clear up some confusion from the past two pages.

    The title was just "Einstein- Status Update"

    Body started with

    "I am happy to inform you that the Committee on Admissions has completed its review of your application, and was very impressed with your academic strengths, and your service to your school and community. At this time, we are now in rolling admissions status, and have placed your application in the High Priority category."

    Their policies on HPWL this year are kinda like Tump's executive actions toward Syria--first promised to stay clear of it, then abruptly threw them 59 bombs a week later and scared the sh**t out of everyone.

    You withdrew because you felt they lied to you about there being only one waitlist? I wouldn't blame you if that's the reason
