Sorry if this is already discussed in another thread ... Does anyone know anything about how reapplicants are treated if they are applying to a school that interviewed them in a previous cycle? For instance, I heard that at SLU, if you interviewed in the previous year's cycle, they will not interview you again. Instead, they will either reject, waitlist or accept based on your last year's interview and improvements in your paper application in the new cycle. Has anyone else heard that? And, is a school more likely to put you on pre-interview hold because they think they pretty much already know what they need to know? maybe they interview you only at the end of the season when, after seeing all the new applicants, they decide whether or not they have space for you?
