    I don't really remember what others were wearing, but I think I wore slacks and a sweater and did not feel out of place.

    If you wore dark wash jeans and a nice top I don't think anyone would notice or care, but I'd say most people will probably be in dress pants or khakis and the equivalent of a dress shirt or sweater.

    I was planning on wearing khakis and a nice sweater or long sleeve shirt if that’s helpful

    So how’d everyone think they did?

    I think my interviews went well, I was very comfortable in most of the scenarios (hopefully not too comfortable?). I think I thought through them well and spoke fairly clearly. I’m afraid my responses were just “good” and not stellar. Although Dr. Pelzer did say that the least nervous interviewees usually do very well, which makes me feel better.

    I think I did a good job of representing myself. Hopefully, it aligns with their admissions criteria. It feels like a crapshoot with so many qualified candidates. I've got no idea how they'll rate me.

    I think I did well, I wasn't nervous and was myself, so I hope I discussed enough of what they were looking for.

    So while they’re looking at our numbers, I figured I’d look at their numbers

    This is impeccable lol. I wouldn't mind them just taking us out of our misery and letting us know today so I can have the weekend to either cope or celebrate the decision.

    I agree. Should we also assume that emails will likely go out between 4:30 pm and 5:00 pm?

    Alternate OOS, does anyone know how quick they pull people from the waitlist? And how much the OOS list moves?

    The OOS waitlist and IS waitlist tend to move a lot as long as people notify that they are not taking their seats. Usually this is due to financial constraint, or being accepted to either their IS school or preferred school.

    In general, if you were offered an OOS seat you will pay OOS tuition all four years even if you become a VA resident during that time.

    Talk to the admissions staff for sure if you have a specific situation in mind but if you are an OOS student you will probably have to sign something that says you acknowledge that you will pay OOS tuition all four years.

    (The only special circumstance I can think of that *might* be able to swing a change in residency is if you are using military benefits to pay for school.)

    Last year I was #5 and I got called off. I got my waitlist rank the beginning of April, so I am not sure where I started at.

    That's reassuring! How long did you have to wait after you found out your ranking?

    I got an email probably about a week after. I do remember it was before the decision due date for the accepted students.

    The general rule is to wear something appropriate. You're definitely allowed to wear hoodies. There's really only a set dress code for labs (pants, lab coats, closed toed shoes.)
