I think they usually send things on Fridays. It sounds like last week Friday was their last interview and they go over the interviews the week after they conduct them. I feel like it might be this Friday if at all this week.
That's true, but last year I think they sent out February's decisions on President's Day (2/18/19).

How presidential lol. I almost wish they would just tell us a day so I could know for sure when to possibly expect something, but then I know I'll be anxious about it. How does everyone else feel? Would you rather have a specific day like with MCAT scores or would you rather have it like this?

Specific day for sure! Then I won't be on edge for every notification I get

Specific day for sure. It adds unnecessary stress and anxiety wondering if every day is the potential day haha.

We have received multiple emails now giving us info and also asking us to RSVP.

Haha thanks, so when is it? A friend who is a student there said it is usually first weekend of March... that is really soon for those who have not heard back which makes me wonder if I will hear good news.

Thing is the revisit day is on 3/6 so it would be more convenient to let the students know 2 weeks in advance as to one week for people to make travel arrangements... Yikes!
I have a feeling that they only want the people they accepted in the first round (cream of the crop) to go to second look to convince them to come to Icahn vs any other T20 school they get in. Just my thought.

I would think most people who get into/ interview at Sinai would be T20 applicants though?

That's true, but this is one of the only schools I know that does second look in March and not April and that in combination with all the icahn insights they sent makes it seem like a tactic of sorts. I don't know maybe I'm wrong

I just called and the guy who answered didn’t really seem to know much. I asked if any more acceptances were coming out before second look. He kept it vague and said I could hear back at any point and possibly miss second look.

I think that may have been the subtle brush off of “we aren’t releasing more until after second look” which is a major bummer!!!

I was told at my interview in early feb that we would hear this month. They actually said 1-2 weeks so likely today.

For real! It needs to be for this reason and the fact that second look is happening. I personally don’t agree that the school only wants the top students to go to it to convince them as opposed to us. We are all competitive plus a bunch of the people interviewed earlier this month are very strong candidates!

Why would they only hold second look for the top students who were accepted first wave makes literally no sense and I doubt its their intention

That was just a theory. I could be totally wrong! I'm just cynical at this point lol

One piece of hope for today is the times they used to send the Icahn insights. Some were sent at 4:26PM and 5:39PM on a Friday. These times definitely don’t appear to be automated. Let’s hope we’ll hear back!

What theory?
I mentioned that I theorized that they're only interested in their first wave acceptances for second look day and that they would put off everyone else including deferred people until after. It's sad and it's frustrating, but I think that's what we're looking at
