    Hello everyone! I'm a self-admitted impatient person - I once started hyperventilating in a drug store while waiting in line to buy a pack of gum... :eek:

    What is the timeline you've experienced from interview to acceptance/hold/waitlist from a particular school?

    I'm antsy as hell!

    -A :confused:

    I interviewed December, was accepted in march. Others in my class were interviewed as late as march, and accepted off the wait list as late as the week before orientation. It's a long process, and there's not much you can do to make it any shorter. . .

    take it easy

    I think BigSky is the exception; most KCOM interviewees are notified within a few days--i was three days. The reason they are so much faster is because they have already put your file through the admissions committee before they interviewed you. The interview is merely a final screening.
