    if you had a short interview (i.e. one that last 15 minutes instead of the scheduled 30 min), will you please post whether you were accepted or not by that school?
    :confused:

  3. i've usually heard that it's a good sign to have a short interview because it means the guy got everything he wanted to know about you in those few minutes, and now he can make his decision. usually it's good, i think. but i may be wrong.

    my interview at SLU was 30 minutes, but i think it was supposed to be about 45. so i thought it was too short. i'll let you know if it worked out in about 2 weeks.

    I had a short interview around 15 minutes at Columbia and I was accepted. I had short interviews at washu and temple but I withdrew my application not too long after my interviews so I dont know.

    I've had both extremes:

    GW - 15 minutes, waitlisted
    Rush - 95 minutes, accepted

    I prefer the long ones...

    One of my Duke interviews lasted only 15 minutes. It ended after I got five questions on geography wrong in a row. I'll let you know on Friday how I did... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

    These faculty interviewers are busy people and sometimes are obligated to do these interviews. I wouldn't hold it as good or bad.

    Short interviews and results:
    1. Temple- 15 minutes (if that), acceptance 5 weeks later
    2. MCP- 20 minutes, acceptance

    Long interviews and results:
    1. GW- 2hrs (w/Dean of Admissions), alternate list then acceptance
    2. Einstein- 2hrs, acceptance

    The only other interview I had was at NYMC and it was around 25 minutes which is normal.

    Legi,
    I sent you a PM, I also had a 15 minute interview last week at Einstein. Just asked about my family and let me go. I'm sure if this is a good or bad sign.

    Less than 10 minutes - haven't heard anything yet from Cornell - I'm assuming the worst since some people on here have heard already.

    1hour @ Einstein - accepted

    Case, interview = 15 mins (scheduled for 30-1hr)
    Accpetance 2 weeks after.

    I really think it is just some people's style of interviewing. Some interviewers want you to spoonfeed them everything you have already written, some just want to see that you are a "real" person and maybe clarify a few things.

    My interviewer at UCLA was about 20 minutes late and the interview only lasted 20 - 30 minutes instead of the usual hour. I'll let you know what happens.

    My interview at Hopkins went for about 10 minutes. We talked about my family, and just as I thought we had gotten past the intro stage into a real discussion, he said "well, I don't want <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> to waste any more of your time."

    Fortunately, I got in, so I'm glad he didn't waste any more of my time <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    I know :( I will definitely let you know if I get a reply from Mr. Silverman. Apparently a couple of people on here have emailed him in the past, and it seems that he does not reply back - at least not in any timely manner.

    I had a 15 minute interview at Columbia, which seems pretty common, but I ended up getting waitlisted.
