How long is the interview?

they had a time cap of 15 minutes on it. my interviewer made it very clear that we were not allowed to run over on time because of their schedule.

Did the interviewers write down notes when you answered the basic interview questions? I feel 15 minutes kind of short. The information that they wrote down will be decisive I guess.
 
yes she took notes, and they are recorded then reviewed by two other committee members before decisions are made

Hang in there and trust the process. There are still a lot of chances for an interview since its still relatively early!
 
To those that have interviewed, did it take a while for your status to change on ADEA?

I submitted mine the first day apps opened and also havent heard anything yet! I believe they are interviewing through January so its still very early.
 
Did anyone else get an email stating UTHSC SoD received 15,000 applications? did they mean 1,500? Not really worried, I just think that's an insane number.

I got one and yeah I thought the same lol

Can anyone speak on the interview process? The style of the interview? Were multiple candidates on the informational zoom call the day before?

It was only one, one on one 20 min interview. And the informational zoom was the same day as interview. Took about 30 min.
 
Does anyone know if they are still sending out pre-dec interviews?
