    Does that mean I won't get an interview?

    I got the "supplemental fee received" e-mail around the same time as some people who got interviews so I'm guessing my application has already been reviewed. So now I'm stuck wondering if I even have a chance at getting an interview or if I should just move on.

    Are interview requests given out on a rolling basis or are they all given at one time for each group that was reviewed?

    Ditto. I was in the first mailing batch so I'm feeling a little discouraged right now.

    From what I know, (I asked a particular D-school) it just means the check is cashed or about to be cashed. Your app is probably waiting in a pile to be reviewed. Give it a few more weeks. You submitted fairly recent too, right? I'd try not to stress and give it another 2 weeks. They do have hundreds and hundreds to get through. But calling isn't a bad idea either. It shows that you're proactive about the process. Call, be polite and professional. Just say you'd like to inquire about the status of your application and when will you be hearing back from Columbia and thank whoever answered you. Might give your app another look which is always a +.
