Is there any chance of getting an interview still from the pre-interview waitlist or no?
I was told (on here) "no," by a user who says they are a Drexel student and works with the adcom.
However, I still have a sliver of hope that isn't true.

Would you be able to tell us your stats and the date of your interview by any chance?
I interviewed on March 20 and I'm thinking about going to get a job so I just want to gauge where I"m at right now
I interviewed on a date very similar to yours, however, I do not want to give a specific day for privacy reasons.

Are they required to provide a decision by 4/30 for those still waiting on interview results?

I wish it was a requirement- the application cycle is hard enough as it is. They should have to at least let us know if we’ll be on the waitlist.

WL email a couple days ago. Interviewed at the end of March. Seems like they've been sporadically sending out decisions so hopefully this helps keep people on their toes (I was not expecting a decision until late April either).

They told me yesterday that they are still reviewing every Thursday. That we could hear back today, tomorrow or anytime after that.

If you think this info is useless it’s because it is :/

Its all good. Enjoy your vacation! Im sure @Melchizedek could post it if he has it (and isnt on vacation as well)
I have it. I didn't upload it previously because I was wondering if there was a certain reason the school was keeping it under wraps, but talked to student affairs today and they said it was okay to post it.


Now pay me with likes! lol

Yes, if you look at last years thread on may 10 a bunch of people got waitlisted, but also some acceptances. Then on may 14 a bunch of people were accepted including those that were literally JUST waitlisted. I thought that was weird.. how you gonna waitlist a person for 4 days thats like pure torture. “Yeah we just wanted to f*** with you, but welcome to Drexel :)

Is it just me, or does it seem like based on the past 2 years that most people who got off the waitlist interviewed in March/April?
obviously speculation here, but in my opinion it could seem that way for two reasons:
1. those who interviewed later are more likely to still be around this website posting here. earlier interviewees tend to fall off the thread i've noticed.
2. while this isn't necessarily true, earlier interviewers may be stronger candidates that got into other schools and thus committed elsewhere by this time
