Interview for Septh 16! Beyond excited! It's my state school!
Anyone heard anything yet? Im interviewing the day they are implementing a new format. They're interviewing more students than usual that day so I'm suspecting its a group activity of sorts.

I haven't heard anything. Just speculation from what the email said. They're interviewing more students that day. So I'm guessing maybe there's going to be a group activity where they give us a problem and see how we work together as a group. I know some schools do that.

Talked to Amanda! It turns out interview format didn't really change other than you are not allowed to bring guests like you could in previous years.

From my email I received. Seems like they've done 10/15 nterview dates. The last interview dates they had were the end of October. Not sure if they interview past then or not but that's all the dates listed in the email.

I interviewed there on August 5th and it was super laid back. Most of the focus was on touring the school, haha. I believe that the first interview date was July 22 and they had an interview every Friday after that. There were 9 applicants being interviewed on my day.

Unfortunately y'all they've been doing out of state as well. I think they tried to do in state early on. When I interviewed it was quite a few out of staters but also Arkansas residents. Seemed like there were a few Georgians Floridians, and Alabamians.

Haha it's all good. I actually got my app complete 9/21... but i received an interview at one of my top choices on 9/29. So I was really shocked. I know other schools might not have this quick of a turnaround but I couldn't help think of the other schools I applied to after that interview I got loll

Hey everyone, so if you get an interview we get an email or we get a phone call? I keep getting phone calls from 901 numbers but I have been applying for jobs like crazy and since I just started one I haven't had time to answer my other calls.
E-mail

It's email. But that's wild. I was getting a crap ton of 901 phone calls too. I started blocking them because they're just telemarketers or something

So, I still haven't received an interview. But, when they first received my application, I got an email saying that if you have outstanding credentials (21 DAT, >3.5 GPA) and still haven't received an interview by October 15, feel free to contact them. Are any of you going to do that?

I never got this email and based off their definition of "outstanding credentials" I would say I have that. Weird. I want to if I got the email loll

Yes they do!! My friends have told me that some of the schools they applied to switched their status to "application denied" already... so I guess if they were gonna reject us that would have been the case...

sorry yall, it's basically bad news. So, I ended up calling again and she told me this. She said that all the interview dates for the Dec 1 decision are filled up. So, if your application is still under review, then you'll probably have to wait until after December 1st to hear anything. If the application says complete, then they're still looking at transcripts and other factors, and if they want to contact you for a pre-Dec interview, they will.

Really appreciate you updating us on this! My app updated to complete just last week so I'm not giving up hope yet.
