    I was complete at VCU around 9/20, and hadn't heard from them since. All of a sudden, out of nowhere on this Sunday evening, I get an e-mail saying my VCU status has changed. I was like "alright, let me log in to read how they word rejections to their applicants," and got the message that EVERYONE seems to get:

    "The committee's file review indicates that they would like to consider your file further. We are now in the process of scheduling interviews and will continue to do so through February"......blahblah I won't post the whole thing, you get the idea.

    My question is: Does VCU actually send out rejections, or rather has anyone gotten one yet pre-interview/post secondary? I'm just assuming this is a kind way of rejecting me. Any thoughts? Thanks! :thumbup:

    I got a similar email about a month ago and then week after that I was granted an interview. i think how quickly they give you the interview after the email depends somewhat on your priority score. I have no clue how they determine a priority score.

    Sounds good to me, and good job/good luck on the interview! May I ask when your file was complete?

    I got the cryptic email on 11/9 saying people at my priority level may get an interview if a spot opens up. Today, 11/20, on a Sunday afternoon oddly enough, got an interview invite, woo hoo!

    When did you submit your application? I submitted mine on 9/21 and have not heard anything yet.

    Yes, VCU does send out rejections post-secondary, pre-interview. There have been a few on SDN in that boat. Don't give up hope, turkey. You may get an invite!

    Turkey,
    Got one of those vague emails too but it was worded differently from yours and after two days, I got an invite. I'm interviewing there next month; my 2nd. So you might get good news from them. Be hopeful!

    You've made the first cut at least! VCU sends out rejections pre-secondary as well.
