There are 2 places I received interviews at after originally being on their "hold" list. One place sent me an invite less than a week after I was told I was on the waitlist; I went and liked it very much, feel like my interviews went well, and will probably rank it highly (although I am only halfway through my interviews so we'll see). The other place I scheduled my interview at but may not go, depends on how motivated (and broke) I am by the time it rolls around. Both programs are in the top 10-15 for my field. Even though I liked the program I went to very much, I am not sure how likely they are to rank me since I didn't make their original interview group. This is part of why I am not sure if it is worth the money to go to the other waitlist interview I received since it will involve a second trip across the country and, again, if I didn't make the initial cut I don't know if there is a high chance of being ranked there. Has anyone heard anything about how people who got interviewed off the waitlist are treated come rank list time? Anybody get into, or know people who got into, programs that they interviewed at after initially being on hold? Thanks!
