    Hi I just recieved an interview invite for the first time EVER. I'm excited and nervous.

    Can someone tell me if this is a good sign to get an interview this early? Also, what are my chances of getting accepted once they interview me? I dont want to get my hopes up :(

    If anyone has interviewed at CASE, what kind of questions do they ask??

    HELP!

    Case is a good school; i liked it. Two interviews. Only school where I was asked to explain some of my college grades (from both interviewers! :eek: ).

    An early interview at Case seems to traditionally be an excellent thing.

    Getting an early interview with CASE is super important to getting in. Make sure you schedule it before december first. The type of questions vary based on who interviews you. If you Interview early...have a good interview....have a GPA around 3.5+......and A dAT overall of at least 18...I'd say the chances of you getting in are excellent. Especially if you tell the interviewers that you love their new curriculum and that is the reason why you applied there.

    I'd say you are in a good spot to be.

    Asked Brian Sherman about this before and he told me that the % of applicants to receive an acceptance letter after they have completed the interview is around ~65-70%.

    Wow! That just got me excited. :) Do you know how many people they will end up interviewing this cycle? And also do you know if it matters very much on when you interview? I got an invite to interview anytime after Aug 14th but due to so many things going on this month (getting married) :love: I had to set it up for mid-Sept.

    Congratz! Hell yeah that's a good sign for you!

    For me with Case, they've placed my appliction on hold since I have to re-take my DAT.

    Lucky you guys who got interview offers this early! Me, I have to wait, worry and pee in my pants. :laugh: :laugh:

    Dude, getting an early interview is such a bad sign. Are you trying to brag or are you that clueless? Of course getting an early interview is a good sign. If you get an acceptance letter, it is a good sign. If you get a rejection letter, it is a bad sign.

    There are usually around 350 applicants that get interviews in one cycle period. And as for interviews, if you don't really screw up on those, then you should be fine.

    Congrats

    Hey, thanks. But do you know if when you interview matters at all? Probably a common sense question, sorry

    Anything before Dec 1 is ideal, as you will be in the first group of applicants to receive acceptance letter (if you do receive one). After that, all the applicants will be competing for the remaining seats and therefore much harder to get an acceptance.
