Looking at last year's thread, it looks like people got off the waitlist starting mid January and still continued sporadically until mid to late June when most of the waitlist movement happened. I also got waitlisted last week, and talked to my student host about it, and he said 2 of the top students in his year got off the waitlist, and did say he knows quite a bit of current students (all years) who have gotten off the waitlistI didn't ask about this on interview day, so if anyone has any insights, I'd love to hear! Do we know if people on the Acceptance Range WL are reconsidered along the way (i.e. if anyone comes off WL in the Fall/Winter) or if it's pretty unlikely for WL people to start being taken off before the spring?
Hi. Also Canadian.Hey all, I was wondering if i could get some guidance. I am a Canadian applicant and my application was completed in mid August, however my application has yet to be reviewed. Seeing how acceptances have already come out, should I prepare myself for some bad news? My apologies, but the difference between the Canadian and US systems have me a little confused. In Ontario, the province I live in, everyone interviews before final acceptances and rejections are handed out to everyone on the same day.
Thanks for the reply!Hi. Also Canadian.
The US schools use a rolling basis of admissions, meaning that they interview and accept throughout the whole cycle. Applications that aren't rejected are continuously looked at, so if you haven't been rejected you are still in the running for the remaining spots.
They do this due to the high volume of applications compared to Canadian schools. It also means that the earlier your applications get in, the more spots are available. I am not sure about Tulane, but I think I read somewhere that some schools hold back the internationals until later in the cycle.
I got an II yesterday too and scheduled my interview today! Earliest available dates were in mid-March. I was put on "hold for possible interview" a few weeks ago so I'm very happy to have this!II yesterday! Really was not expecting it considering how early they start their application process. OOS, complete 8/22, under review 9/6. Earliest date available for II was 2/6/2020.
Did you update them? I just sent an update but they’re my alma matter and I’m feeling a little hurt I got put on hold not gonna lie LOLI got an II yesterday too and scheduled my interview today!

It was my first interview so I was definitely nervous, but I found it to be really pleasant day. The students and faculty were incredibly nice and welcoming, stellar New Orleans food, and my interview was super relaxed and conversational. The only mildly hectic part was that there are a few buildings that the interviews can take place in, so you have to kind of navigate your way around 3 blocks of the city (and at the time in Sept, it was sweltering). Overall, really nice day and I was super excited about the school.Is anyone who has already interviewed willing to comment on what interview day was like?
