I’m 1 for 5 so far,
I try to cheer up myself that at least I got one, but damn I feel like ****
having at least 2 or 3 will give me some sort of insurance, and boost self esteem

Did anyone receive an invite days after the one listed? For instance let’s say received an invite on 9/01, did someone receive theirs several days later?

I am also guessing this year since everything is virtual, nobody really needs to decline the interview, so they won’t need to give any refused interview to other candidates. (More post match spots as a consequence for this year???)
Can you extrapolate on how the post-match process works and why you're speculating that more spots might be available this year? Thanks so much!!

Fewer people potentially attending the interviews as there are fewer conflicts since everything is online this cycle. This means there may be more spots left unmatched for post match which is a scramble to contact these schools with post match positions and apply there in hopes of attending following match day.

Thanks so much for explaining. Any insight into how to "post-match?" Do you need to have interviewed there if there is a position available or do you simply need to contact the program and "sell yourself" to the director/admissions committee?

The latter. You can apply to any program that has vacant spots during post match.

After emailing Buffalo yesterday: "We are in the very early stages of the selection process and applicants will be notified via email of the status of their application as soon as a decision is made."

Does anyone know if Buffalo has historically sent out invites in waves?
I would also like to know this.

As mentioned by others... is it the case that not all interview invites for a given school are sent out all in one shot?
bc of COVID?
Do you think all of the schools are doing this?
Is there any evidence of this idea, or is it just a hypothesis?

My son hasn't gotten any interviews and he has pretty solid credentials, so I feel like this would explain it. But who knows...

Thoughts? Insights?

I saw someone post earlier that UConn sent out interviews but I don't see it on the list - anyone know if they were definitely sent out?

Now I'm not sure because someone else just received completion email from them. So hopefully we will get some clarification soon

Just received a call from Pittsburgh inviting for interview so some schools are sending out in waves or maybe someone just couldn't go ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I guess don't count out a school until you actually get a rejection email
Wow this is making me hopeful

I am just curious how someone could not possibly go... Everything is virtual, so people don’t need to spend money on travelling, housing, etc. Unless it clashed with the same time as another of the school they had an invite from. But it is quite interesting to see quite some schools sending invites by waves, gives a glimpse of hope haha Although I wished they could rip off the band aid sooner and faster

Pittsburgh: "Our interviews this year are October 8th and 22nd. We received 137 applications so far, and fill interview spots as needed up until the days of the interviews, which are virtual this year. Thus, one can only know they’re not selected for an interview until the opportunities finally pass in time"

So they mean until they officially reject?

hello everyone and good luck! So is it possible that Rochester Eastman hasn’t sent invites for interviews yet although the deadline was August 1st?
