If I had my secondaries complete early October, when should I expect to hear back in regards to interview invites or even rejections? I have one interview invite so far at a school where I haven’t even been complete at for a month so I’m confused as to what that timeline looks like. Thanks.

PS - just goes to show there is hope for those of us who were complete later on in the cycle. Good luck to you all !

Most adcoms say completing early October is not late this cycle and every school processes differently so no one can give timelines. Check the threads of schools you applied and you may get an idea but expect to get invitations anytime between now and January.

I think it depends on the school. I also submitted midish-October and they've been slowly rolling in. Mostly within the last week or so. I'd expect most schools to respond in December (if at all) just from looking at other trends. There is hope for us ;)

1) Applications are not evaluated and considered in chronological order
2) you could get an Invite from now until well after the New Year
3) You could get a rejection from now until next April
4) you could get nothing as no school is required to inform of anything other than an interview or acceptance
5) Essentially your start as unaccepted and unless the school decides otherwise that where you are. Some schools never send out any rejections.
