    My applications were completed in early October. How long should I wait before I start receiving interviews. My stats are competitive (according to the reported averages) at every school that I applied to.

    Where did you apply? Where are you from? What are your stats? What is your favorite ice-cream flavor? ;->

    The above info will help people respond to you better, but sounds like you should start recieving responses anytime. Might want to call around just to "make sure everything is in" (letters, transcripts, etc...) to help the anxiety out!

    Best wishes!

    I called some schools recently and found out that there may be a significant amount of time between the date your secondary is recieved and the date the secondary actually begins being evaluated. At some schools this may be as long as two weeks!

    So...I guess the time for a response may be between six to eight weeks after your secondary has been received by the admissions office.

    Nonetheless, I'm still camping out by the mailbox waiting for more replies.
