    Got an email from the admissions office stating that the 555 was accurate. Let's hope the email was accurate ;)

    That's awesome! I imagine they will be sending new IIs sometime later this month if interview season ends in Feb/March.

    Guys!!! So I'm really just.... arghhh!!! I got the secondary for wayne on december 20th but I didn't notice they asked for the supplementary app to be turned in w/in two weeks!! I was doing something else, but if I had really noticed, I would have prioritized!! That's all on me. Did I just pretty much shoot up all my chances? Am I pretty much down for the count???? I can't complain if I am because I totally deserve it if so, but I'm really really really hoping that's not the case!!!

    Its getting kinda late to be submitting secondaries at this point, for any school. That being said, might as well call them and ask if you can still submit who knows it seems like they have 400+ Interviews left.

    Actually they have a lot less interviews available than that. Their admissions tracker is not current. They haven't updated their interview numbers on the site since early November. I kept note of it throughout the cycle for personal neurotic reasons. Dates listed below are approximate.

    Looks like it may be accurate. That's not to say there is a specific number remaining, as it's possible they will be interviewing fewer applicants this cycle, or have already filled a larger proportion of their pool than previous cycles.

    I wonder how many of that 555 even know they were invited since a lot of people didn't get email invites and might not be checking the portal regularly.

    Right. But most people got the email. OP suggested tons of people might be unaware they have an ii for that reason. Pointing out that's unlikely especially since conducted interviews aligns well with interviews scheduled.

    That's been the same number, 555, since early November. So there's no way it's accurate. For one, I received my II in mid-November and others received theirs at a later time. I don't believe they didn't send a single invite since early/mid-November. Historically they've interviewed at least 700 students. Plus they have a class of 290. You don't interview 555 for a class of 290.

    I never received an II email either. I only saw it on the portal.

    Maaaayyybe they factored those future invites into their numbers for November so they didn't have to update it over the holiday?

    Listen man just go with it, you're dangerously close to shattering the fragile reality I've created where admissions offices are never wrong, every one of us has an invite to a school waiting, and cheese has been reclassified as a vegetable.

    I doubt it will be one, since interview invitations were made throughout February last year as well. They seem to trickle in in batches as well, so honestly who knows.
