I'm wondering if schools ever give interviews before committee letters (and LOR packets) are sent out. I submitted my primary on the very first day it opened and have completed all of my secondaries. My school typically sends out the committee letter mid-August, so should I just plan on not hearing anything until then? Thanks!

Rule 1: Take A Breath

because most schools will get several thousand applications, an applicant's file will not be reviewed for interview until it is complete with Primary, Secondary, MCAT, and LOR/LOE. Your application will remain in waiting for completion until it is marked complete and then sent for review

Based on an email I received regarding an interview invitation, it seems that they do send out interview invites before LOR are received.

I received an interview invitation this cycle before my committee letter (or any other letters) had been submitted to AMCAS. So, it's possible, but I wouldn't expect any interview invites until the letters are in and you are marked as complete.
