    Response was that they deliberate in December, send out acceptances on the 15th of December (15th of every month), but don't conduct interviews in December. However, they stated that because IU does not do rolling admissions, they cannot guarantee that all acceptances will be sent out on the 15th of the following month. It may take much longer to hear back.

    Got my interview invite at the end of August, and I finally got a date today. IU has taught me patience.

    Hmm. This is a good question. In my experience, I don't know of any first years even doing research at this point. 1st semester is a trip and a half let me tell you. But I will say that being at a regional campus could make it harder to find research opportunities during the year. For example, I was interested in pursuing some maternal health and perinatal research. I reached out to a professor on the Indy campus and we met for a meeting. She seemed excited to bring me aboard, and spoke of several projects she had in mind that I could work on. Even when I mentioned that I was at a regional campus she said she didn't think it would be a problem and I could do some remote work. But, I got an email a few weeks later basically saying "they didn't have any projects for me at this time and that they would email me in a couple months with an update." It's now been four months without any word. Does that mean they ghosted me because of the fact I'm at a regional campus? Not necesarily. But do I think it was? Yes.

    I asked in an e-mail if decisions will be made/sent out in December and they said yes...? They also said this during the interview itself :dead:

    I interviewed back September, and my portal still says under considerstion.

    However I just received an email informing me I wasn’t selected for an interview.

    Did anyone else get this? Was this an accident or?

    Should I be concerned if I was invited to interview in September but still haven't received my interview date? Very nerve-wracking.

    Hi everyone, I’m not very active on here, but I made an account just to ask this. For those who interviewed, how long did it take for your portal to change to “under consideration”? I interviewed early November and it still says in process.

    Thanks!!

    Some have said it happened by the next morning. Personally, mine took a bit over a week. Were there any hangups with your references/dean evaluation/legal disclosure form? If so, I'd give them a call just to verify that they have all the info they need from you. I'm guessing mine took awhile because they had to reevaluate a rec letter the day before the interview - maybe something similar is happening with yours.

    dang :( I wonder why it hasn't changed... I had my letters, dean eval, and legal form all in weeks before I even interviewed. I just called though to double check and she confirmed everything was in... really hope this isn't an indication on the future outcome of my interview :drowning: this is my favorite school agh

    Does interviewing in the spring basically mean you'll be waitlisted?

    Hey ya'll, I received the II invite in early October and received the Interview date this morning. I was wondering if anyone could tell me about how long the interview day is? I'm attending the afternoon interview session but it seems that most flights departing Indy on my interview date leave at 6pm... I feel like this would be cutting it a little close. Since the actual interview begins at 3pm...

    6pm is definitely too close. It's about 45 minutes from the Indy campus to the airport, so you should leave for the airport by 4:45 at the latest.
