Could be worse, Mota. Vermont has me "complete and should hear in several weeks" since before 9/1. BEFORE SEPTEMBER. That's like 13 weeks. For the tuition price you might be paying to Vermont, I expect SOMETHING before 13 frickin' weeks. Banks foreclose on your house for being this late!!! :mad: :mad: :mad:

What's with all the Vermont stuff? Hijackers! :mad:

j/k, I'm waiting on them too. But for VCU, I've been in vague status limbo (VSL) since 9/28.

:eek: I check my online status page there almost every day. Most schools yell at you if you call them and tell you to check online. How are we supposed to know?

when were you complete if you dont mind my asking? they offer 2 more batches of acceptances, once in january and once in march, so if you interview before those periods you are fair game for getting an acceptance.

I got a vague message at first and then got an interview invite on friday. My interview is Jan 25 so they are still kind of early i guess.

I've been complete since early October and I finally got one of those vague messages today! Oddly enough, my status was updated today even though the school has been closed since Tuesday. For those that received interviews recently, did you receive a vague message and how soon afterwards did you get the invite?

I think it depends which message you get. I got the really vague one that did not mention anything about a priority score. Those that got the message mentioning the priority score seemed to get interviews within a couple of weeks from what I could tell.

Nevertheless, an invite did come about 10 weeks after I got the message, so there is hope. :)

awesome. finally got the vague status message. did we ever figure out which one is better/worse? mine didn't mention anything about a priority score, just that they were interested but that they are interested in far more people than they have interview spots for. didn't sound too promising.

"The committee's file review indicates that they are interested in your candidacy. However, due to the increase in the applicant pool this year, it is clear that we MAY be unable to interview all the candidates at your priority score. If we do find that we are able to grant an interview you will be notified by email."

This the one you got, Mota? Wonder how many versions of the "vague" email there are. :oops:

here's mine:
The committee's file review indicates that they would like to consider your file further. We are now in the process of scheduling interviews and will continue to do so through February. Unfortunately, the committee indicates interest in far more candidates than we are able to interview. Since we are dependent on the Committee member's schedules for interview spaces, we are unable to predict when or if we will be able to schedule you this year. Please continue to check this site to learn when further action has been taken.

they both sound equally discouraging, don't you think? i don't get why there are different versions. but someone said that when they mention priority score you usually get an invite quicker than when they don't. either way, it seems to be a right of passage before you get an interview, so i'm hangin in there.

I think their last scheduled acceptance offer date is March 20th which is when they make the waitlist for those who havent been accepted and are still on post interview hold, then they begin accepting students off that list....so Im guessing they stop interviewing early March.
