I would still send in your money. I don't have my interview there until Jan28th, but I still made one...why? Because in my book, there is no such thing as too many interviews. The other idea I have: Case is filling up its list very, very early...it seems to me that not everyone is going to end up going to the interviews after December 1st because Case's first pick on students will be the first pick of a lot of other schools as well....and students (the majority of them) are more likely to take a state school over Case (because of the money). Therefore, it seems to me that even though you might be on an alt. list...the real question is, how many of the students who are interviewing after Dec. 1 are going to keep their spots? Think about it: if half of the students cancel their spots, then everyone else moves up on the list...making your chances on the alt. list a lot better...maybe it would even take you off the alt. list and place you in the regular pile? I have no idea, these are just my hypothetical ideas. Good Luck!
