Are there places where getting an interview means that you are pretty much in, so long as you don't completely botch it?

During my interview last week, Someone mentioned at LECOM 40% of interviewed applicants eventually get accepted.

Thats probably going to be the highest chance you have. A lot of schools place interview performance as the top 3 most important criteria.

None. Because conducting interviews is on the applicants dime, and many schools stockpile their wait lists. FYI, BCOM had over 400 people on their wait list for the last cycle.
How many people did BCOM interview last cycle?

No, RVU and the midwesterns have something like a 70%+ acceptance rate post interview, but they are stingy with their invites and screen heavily pre-II. Some schools only interview people they want to accept but just want to make sure they aren't Ted Bundy and others interview a lot of people to see if some people are better in real life than they look on paper.

But, OP, there are no schools where acceptance is guaranteed. Even at those high post II acceptance schools they will still reject you for being a moron. Long story short: don't be stupid. (This is literally my life motto :cigar:)

It depends, the earlier you interview the better your chances of getting accepted after the interview. Most schools run a rolling admissions cycle so as the year progresses it gets harder.

One of the Nova adcom members said its usually about a 50 percent chance if you are invited for an interview. I do not think schools just invite people randomly.

LECOM certainly did not accept 40%.

It was 25% accept, 25% waitlist, 50 reject from the interview. I was in the 25 for waitlist

From my interview cycle I remember WCUCOM and LMUDCOM being two schools that accepted a very large portion of those they interviewed. Not too sure about any other schools.
