I just got an invitation to interview. I'm picking October 24th. Anyone else picking that date? Also I would LOVE to know how many they are interviewing and how many are accepted. I haven't found that information anywhere though. I guess that's a good question to ask during the interview LOL

I hope so, they're my #1 choice.
I think you've got it in the bag. There probably aren't too many people with Masters degrees applying. I hope more applicants get on this thread so we can all stress out together LOL

I'm hoping everyone on this thread will keep everyone else updated as to their status? If I get in you won't need to check the thread because you'll hear me screaming with joy:)

It may have changed since graduating, but I recall as many as 24 interviewees per group, with 8-12 groups during the fall/spring. On occasion, they will do individual interviews during the week.

I don't believe they accept a set number per interview group, but I would imagine they accept as many as 90-100 students in total knowing that a certain percentage will not attend. I have no inside knowledge of how the adcom decides these things, so this is purely conjecture.

Good luck

Just got done with my interview at the U, and now I can't imagine going anywhere else. I need to go here. Even though my group was the first group, there were between 20-40 people in total, I didn't count so let's say 30. Anyway this school is amazing.

I called Friday last week, they said they are still going through files of ppl in the interview of oct. 3rd, and this Friday they have another interview session, so I'm guessing they are a little behind schedule with the decision making

I wonder if they will make any decisions before the second round of interviewees arrive this week. Does anyone know how many interview dates they have?

I don't think anyone will hear anything until November considering the adcom can only meet every 2-3 weeks and it hasn't been 3 weeks since my October 3rd interview. I'm hoping that my early interview = early acceptance.

Most if not all adcoms meet once a month, sometimes less than that. I was basing my knowledge on the prior years interview to acceptance time frame. It seems that the earliest has anyone found out (at least on SDN ) was around November. Though, I wouldn't mind receiving an acceptance before then. :)

I don't care when do they meet, I just want an answer!!!
I will make sure that I ask some of the above questions at my interview on Friday. I hate not knowing also. They may give me an answer because its not wise to stress out a 41 year old guy. It's a health risk LOL:)

They won't disclose the timeline because the way they compare applicants they pretty much wait until the last minute to reject you... If you don't get pick from you interview round they hold you app to compare you with the groups that come afterwards, that's why they tell you to don't stress if you don't hear right away. But I'm still stressing!!!!

This is why I want to go to this school, they actually read my whole application and letters of reference. And they are much more friendly than some other programs.

I had my interview yesterday:). I loved the program and hope I get accepted. The interview was very laid back and relaxed. They just try to get to know you. They told us a decision would be made by March. That sucks, but it is what it is. I also spoke with several of the students and one of the current students interviewed last year in October and was accepted in March. One student interviewed in November and was accepted in five days. So there is no way to put a date on hearing anything.

Got that info today from admissions. Hope this helps, because I have been loosing my mind... They said the delayed has been due to the large amount of applicants this year.

Well my birthday is the first week of December so I hope they consider that when making decisions... But seriously thank you for this information. I had called admissions the other day, but it was before they opened.

Did they specify what they meant by large number of applicants? Now I'm worried that they will be interviewing more than the 200-250 that they normally do. Just curious if they said if the interview pool is also larger than normal. Thanks for the update though!
