How common is it to get an interview once waitlisted? Specifically Mount Sinai.
Ask them how many people they on their waitlist and where you are on that list. Do not hang up the phone until they tell you.
Doesn't being on waitlist already put you at lower rank than others who got invites ?
Anyone else have insights to this? I was wondering the same thing myself.
We really don't know how we'll rank you until you interview--so you may well end up shining brighter than people who got prioritized based on their paperwork.
Not necessarily. The bottleneck is the number of interview slots. Thus, likelihood of the applicant being interested in a program is a factor that is weighed when deciding whom to interview (i.e. why interview somebody who is going to rank me low). How well an applicant likes me does not have a great effect on ranking of people. It has more to do with how we liked the applicant.
