I'm in my third application year. I have pretty good stats, average GPA but fairly high MCAT. For the particular school in question, I was left on the waiting list until the last day on my 2nd application.

I was interviewed in early November at the same school. I received a "no final action" letter after what I thought was a very positive interview experience. Now, 3 months later, I just received a " we would like to re-interview" letter.


I'm somewhat stunned at this, but optimistic. Is this a common thing? Is this a particularly good, or bad sign ? I've never heard of this school doing re-interviews, so I'm a little confused, but I'm just happy it isn't a rejection.

Any experience with "re-interviews" ? What possible scenarios were likely to have occurred to have this happen?

just my guess, but at some schools, the interviewers are supposed to return an evaluation form within a certain time period. Perhaps your interviewer didn't return the form within the time frame (or didn't return it at all, or it was lost in the admission office). That's what I think would be a likely explanation. Good luck on your re-interview.
