Lets keep a running list of interview dates. As you get them please update the list with the date(s) of the interview, and how you got the invite (phone or email).

If your app is in right now you are good to go. You are definitely not too late. A reminder, each program receives ~ 90 applications, some more than others. And each program will only interview between 9-15 candidates ultimately accepting 3-4. Some less than that. If you don’t get an interview at a school it’s just because you are not exactly what they are looking for. Every program is unique and fills their class differently. It’s a weird process and doesn’t make sense all the time. If you applied broadly you’ll probably end up with more interviews than you even want to attend. Good luck everyone.

Guys, also be aware that some schools will send out different waves of invites; they see how many accept from the first and then send out more waves accordingly. Don't freak out yet.

Applied to UNC 5/25 via PASS (however PASS has not uploaded my NBDE scores yet)
Finished application to SLU 6/3.

Perhaps I applied to SLU too late?
I think you’re fine. I’m sure they’ll send out more invites #beingoptimistic

DAT , transcripts and photo I think
You're right. I wasnt aware of those being required until I called them to check. Submitted that stuff on June 4th but I guess that was too late for them.
The application process is certainly not consistant with different programs requesting different materials even though they all utilize PASS.

Tufts sent out interviews already? Can anyone confirm this?
No, that’s the old list from last year or a couple years ago. People ask the same thing every year about Tufts. They usually run a little later anyways.

Do you know when tufts sent out interview invites last cycle? Also did they ever send you an email stating that your application was complete?

Someone posted last year that they received an invite via email on June 25th for July either 29,30-Aug 1,2. I didn’t apply Tufts so I am not sure about that app complete notification.

I'm glad people are getting interviews already!

Appears that the interview notifications are starting out similar to last year. Based on the posts from last year, are invites also sent out on the weekends? Has anyone had the experience of weekend interview invitations notifications?

They were all sent on weekdays. This is usually the case because a lot of schools call and the ones that email may ask you to call and confirm.

SLU sends out only one round of interviews and only has one interview date. I interviewed there 2 yrs ago. If you didn't get an invite, unfortunately, you can probably count yourself out at that program (unless things have changed in the last 2 yrs)

Well, that eliminates one for me. Here’s hoping for some responses this week. :fingerscrossed:

By what date is my application early, and by what date should I be worried that my application is getting late? I submitted and paid for my ADEA PASS applications on May 23. I had all of my documents submitted and received but my school did not submit the Dean's letter until June 15, even though I requested it the first-day PASS opened on May 15. Now I am still waiting for my final PEF, which should be submitted any day now. Should I be worried?

I think the schools are able to do a preliminary review of your application even when it is incomplete. My transcripts havn't uploaded yet but already got a few interview invites, so hopefully you aren't missing out on anything.
