How long do schools usually take to invite you for an interview?

How long do schools usually take on average to invite you for an interview after the application is verified? I heard of some people getting invites within a day or a week! Is this true?

It took me almost a month for one school, another school took maybe 2-3 weeks and the other one took like 4 months lol. It really depends on the school honestly. But yeah, if you don't hear back for a while don't be afraid to email them, it's really not a big deal

It's specific to each school. Some will invite right away, while others follow a scheduled timeline. The school I'm applying to sends invites approximately two weeks prior to the interview date.

What about non-ED, though?
I submitted 6 applications almost two weeks ago and they still have only "verified" on the status section, not "under review."
