    First time here, just waitlisted today.

    I have a question, how many students go on their waitlist? At my interview, I was told that around 20 percent are accepted off, and the numbers of acceptances total is around 440 out of 740 interviews.

    In my acceptance letter, it says the offer is contingent upon satisfactory completion of coursework to which I've committed myself in the application. Some of the "Current/Future" courses (none are prereqs for Stony Brook) I listed for 2018-19 aren't offered or would not work for my schedule. I listed these courses b/c some other schools had them as prereqs.

    How strict is the admissions office about completion of all the future coursework?

    I stayed at the Three Village Inn, about 5-10 minutes from the school. It was a pretty nice bed and breakfast.

    Guess I'll ask again, but does anyone have an idea of how large the waitlist is? It can't be 300 like MSAR says because that would mean no student gets rejected post interview, as they accept 440 out of 740.

    Thank you! Interviews are on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and earliest available day was 01/10... They don't give you days to choose from but instead you tell them what days you're available

    Has anyone had luck with ITA emails? I sent one over the weekend for the week of January 10th and they seem to be giving out interviews for that week today

    Anyone know if people who are accepted tend to hear back sooner? Based off last years thread it looks like some people heard back as early as 2-3 weeks when they were accepted

    Interviewed in early December and was wondering how much they adhere to their 6 week promise? I.e. I imagine they review candidates in groups post interview, and if some candidates interviewed close to when the AdCom meets, then in theory they should be hearing back earlier than 6 weeks? Or is this like a strict rule? Just curious :)

    Also interviewed in early december but honestly wouldn't keep my hopes up for earlier than 6 weeks, especially with the holiday season, you know?

    It’s going to vary since some people heard back in 2-3 weeks, others take longer than 6. I would imagine that the next released set of decisions would be comprised of most November interviewees with maybe a few December interviewees in between.

    It depends on the times of your interviews. you should get an email about a week or so before your interview day. In my case, I wrapped up by two or so, and just took the next LIRR for New York. Some people had interviews scheduled after two I believe. Also, my day started early in the morning so I opted to sleep in a nearby hotel the day before

    Depending on when your first interview is scheduled for. I had both my interviews before the lunch time which was at 12 pm. from 12-1:30 theres a lunch, tour, and admissions talk...some people had interviews after that but some people were able to leave right after that

    Any guesses on the next wave of decisions? I am hoping that we will find out before the holidays.

    That’s crazy turnaround. Did they tell you you would hear back in 6-8 weeks?
