    I know there was a thread on this before, but anyone else have an idea of where Pitt stands right now with their acceptance date of Feb. 22?

    When I interviewed in October, they said all decisions would be made on Feb 28th. Recent interviewees/posters have reported that that date has been pushed back to the first week in March.

    We're all sitting with our fingers crossed...

    Hope this helps.

    Anyone know how many acceptances they send out? I'm estimating around 300.

    I spoke with Pitt, considering I applied late and am waiting for an interview. They have informed me they are interviewing through end of March.

    No...first batch will go out early March. At least that's the propaganda I have been fed thus far.

Considering they haven't finished interviewing, I doubt they will give out all the accepts they hope to give off the bat. Unless they're like some schools that are currently interviewing for the waitlist. From US news, they accepted 389 of 888 interviewees for the ~150 class. So that means after the intial batch, they'll only need to make 89 more offers to all those interviewing PLUS the waitlist? Maybe that is possible, but it's a bad way to go about it.

    USeF, what I meant was 300 acceptances total when it's all said and done. I was just pulling a number from nowhere...I figure over half their acceptees go somewhere else.

    I got my secondary in the week of the deadline, so I am assuming they will be getting to my app rejection or interview soon.

    If i remember correctly from my interview, pitt told us that they accept 3 people for every one position that they have in the class.
