    I have a sackler interview coming up, and it seems as though most people who were rejected were not offered an interview. Does anyone know how many they interview versus how many they accept? Has anyone been rejected post interview? Thanks.

    Hi

    I am sure that if you were granted an interview you do have a very very good chance of being accepted.

    However I do know more than one person who was rejected post inteview. The bottom line is that Sackler is competative to get into - despite what others may say.

    Just keep in mind that they obviously saw enough potential in your application to seriously consider you thus far - this should give you confidence that you can rock that interview.

    Good luck:luck:

    Can you please be more specific about this rumor? Where did you hear it? You don't know what you just did to my nerves!

    don't get your hopes up yet. My friend called their office, and they said they would send out "some" acceptances at the end of this week, and the rest after Passover.

    Hope that helps...

    I interviewed with Sackler in early February. I was told that I should hear after Passover.

    Called today and was told that I should hear late April - early May. Is this a sign of rejection?

    To people who received acceptances: When did you interview?
