    Those of you who have received interviews/acceptances at MCW, did anyone get their interview invite via snail mail? Or was it only email?

    Thanks

    Yeah, what's cool about MCW is that decisions are made within a week after your interview day (the committe meets every thurs). BTT you get it in the mail, it will probably be about 10 days (depending where you live). I interviewed there last month and recieved the acceptance approx two weeks later. good luck to you!

    For people who have recently interviewed at MCW, do you mind posting your stats and EC's?

    Rejections are via snail-mail as well. Thin envelope absolutely stinking of rejection.

    So you got your interview invite in the regular mail? It seems like most everyone else got an email.

    MCW fills the class before putting anyone on the waitlist, IIRC. Pretty soon (if not already), they'll have filled their class though. I know that some people have been told outright that they were interviewing for the waitlist (my student tour guide at MCW was one of these - obviously she got in later).

    yeah, it's probably pretty close. They interview ~45 people each week, so once they have enough to hit 250 or so (the class is 200, I think they offer 250 acceptances), they start filling the waitlist. Sometimes their waitlist sees a lot of movement. If I get into Northwestern, one of you guys can have my spot. :) But I won't know until February. Good luck though! How was Drexel?

    Don't get too worried. I had a friend that interviewed in April, was waitlisted, and was still accepted. (very last minute, but he was accepted).

    That's what I was told by their staff and the students, yes.
     
  20. Doesn't MCW interview based on completion date? I called the school a few weeks ago and was told that I would probably recieve an interview when they got around to my application date... Has anyone who was complete on 9/26 or later recieved an invite yet?

    If they accept everyone they interview untill the class is full, then why interview at all?

    There's been a misunderstanding. They don't accept everyone they interview as you asked. Prowler is trying to say that if they LIKE you at the interview, you will be accepted, unless the class is full, then you go on the waitlist. They do reject people as a result of interviews. If that's actually accurate, I dunno. But they DO stress at interviews that everyone that gets an interview invite is "academically acceptable." So from the interview and beyond it's basically a question as to whether or not you're a homicidal psychotic arrogant arse. That and if they think you'll bring something special to the class (like cookies...everyone likes cookies).

    Okay, that is how it was described to me too. I am glad I didn't show up to the interview butt ass nekkid with GO VIKS! henna tatooed on my butt cheeks, as I originally planned.

    Side note: the coffee in the little gift shop/ espresso store is really good coffee.

    Nah. The el cheapo French Vanilla in the cafeteria is by far the best.

    One day the dispenser was screwed up and I got what tasted like a twice as strong mixture of the stuff.

    My friends can attest to what happened afterwards.

    First off, who have you been talking to?

    Secondly, I don't need biochemical induction to do a Richard Simmons impression. Those and other more frightening things come quite naturally.

    A guy named Eric said, "watch out for this guy." Then he opened up a large photo album filled with pictures of you. He said, "Stay away from him, he's mine! I just love when he gets all hopped up on caffeine and does his Richard Simmons impressions. It is soooo cute." That is when I knew MCW was the place for me.

    Those photos were all taken while I was drugged against my will!!! Don't believe a THING that man says. And he's not really a man. He's a robot. Sent from the future by the son of Mr. Istwan, our last, best hope for survival.

    You should get an acceptance just for using a Transformers reference. :D
