Early Interviews

    I'm sure this subject has been discussed on here, but does anyone have any legit information regarding interviewing early?
    I received a first batch interview at one school, and an interview on Day 1 at another school. I assume this is a good sign, but does it mean that I will have a better chance of getting accepted than people who hear later? I saw in the ADEA book that most schools have a 1/3 or 1/4 acceptance to interview ratio, but does this factor in a lot of late interviews that are pretty much happening to build up a wait list?

      It means that you are seen as preferrable relative to the other applicants who've completed their application and are in the same pile being reviewed with yours.

      Whatever that means...
