    I called the admissions office to ask this and they told me that they only take post interview updates.

    Anyone know how hard it is to become a Minnesota resident in order to get in state tuition?

    I’m pretty sure during interview day they said that the only way to be eligible for in state tuition (if you’re not already a mb resident) is to 1. Marry a Minnesotan or 2. If your family makes Minnesota their home state. (I’m OOS so this was a bummer for me to learn!)

    After my interview I received an email from Matt Belinski that stated they would only accept application updates if they were received before midnight on the day of the interview. In other words, they accept pre interview updates, not post interview updates. I'd call and ask to be sure though.

    When I asked admissions they said you must work full time in Minnesota for one year to be considered a resident.

    From what I've seen it's about 30%. In state it's over 50%.

    Has anyone accepted so far paid their deposit and had it reflect in the portal? So far it hasn’t in mine and I haven’t had any luck getting a hold of admissions. Just wanting to make sure my spot is reserved!

    I called them about a week ago to ask that question. She told me they were pretty backed up but that she could verify mine quick since she was just about to get to my payment. It seems like the payment and confirmation of your spot in the class is automated and automatic, but an actual person needs to check that box in your portal. I was accepted on October 17th by the way!

    Ok, that makes me feel a little better! Just didn’t want to not have my spot reserved! I’d just love to get confirmation that my spot is reserved. Thanks! Looking forward to being your classmate!

    So I just received an interview invitation yesterday, and I selected my two dates and hit submit. However, I didn't receive any confirmation that I even selected the dates, and now I can follow the link and I could technically select two more dates. How long does it take to get a confirmation email from the school that you have an interview date? I am having fears that I never even selected the dates to begin with - like my wifi messed up and my request for my two dates didn't go through. LOL

    The same thing happened to me. I ended up getting my desired date, even though I couldn't specify preference. I was worried so I tried to reenter my dates but the system told me that I had already selected dates, so at the very least I knew they were submitted. I did have to call the admissions office to confirm my date, though. I think they are back logged this time of year. Chances are your dates went into the system. If you don't hear back in a week maybe give them a call or email.

    I didn't get any confirmation I selected my dates, but I just got my Interview Day confirmation email about an hour ago and they gave me the date I wanted! So relieved!

    I called in yesterday and she lady I spoke to said majority of their staff was away for a conference, hence things were not being updated or replied to.

    I was under the impression that it was taking 4-6 weeks for a turn-around from the interview?

    They say 4-6 weeks during the interview but they had been hitting a 3 week mark. That might change but they seem to be going pretty quick post interview.

    Ah, I stand corrected. Maybe the 4-6 week estimate is more accurate.

    I might be wrong, but it seems like they are sending out interviews every two weeks: Oct 17, Oct 31, etc...

    Therefore, I suspect that the next wave of IIs is going out on Nov 14.

    Anyone who who got an II on Oct. 31st still waiting to hear back about what day they are interviewing? I preferenced the end of November interviews and I still haven't heard back. I don't want to bother admissions if they still haven't told us dates yet, but flights are starting to get really expensive.

    Check your Spam. My interview date came in the next day but didn't see it until later because my email put it in my spam folder.

    That's so weird, I checked my spam folder and nothing. I reached out to the school, I hope it was just a mistake, I'm not super thrilled I've been waiting 2 weeks for a confirmation on the interview. Thanks for helping!

    Definitely give them a call if it's been a long time, 2 weeks seems like it would qualify as a bit too long -- I think the interview coordinator is a bit slow.
