    I high key wish that WSU had an active account like NCSU on here. Whoever runs their account is an internet troll and I love it.

    And I'm a D.

    I also think our letters might have gotten backed up somewhere with the Holidays being so close. And I'm believing this only because my sister and I ordered Wisdom Panels for our dogs on Black Friday literally hit the "order" button at the same time. Hers came first and mine came like a week later than hers. And Black Friday is also one of those busy "holidays" for the USPS.

    It’s helpful!! Mine so far has only listed packages for today (I just verified it online yesterday). I’m assuming it’ll update with daily mail tomorrow. But so far, I can only see what will be delivered in a 24 hour period. Kind of cool.

    I'm a "Z" so there's literally no rhyme or reason to this. No mail again as of last night and I'm in the midwest.

    With the informed USPS, I have do not have three letters photographed on my dashboard. I feel like one of them will be from WSU. But, I will keep y'all posted.

    Keep us posted! I might give in and call them in a little bit.

    And according to the daily digest, no rejection letter for me. @Caiter92 might be right about waves of rejection?

    Maybe people who haven't received a rejection are on a waitlist?

    I still haven't heard anything. From NY.

    I'm out of town but my stepdad sent me a picture of a piece of mail from WSU so I'm guessing that's my rejection letter. Hope everyone else has a great holiday and some great luck!

    What is the interview format for WSU? I have heard that it is MMI but can't seem to find a definitive answer

    As of last year it was not MMI. You're in one room with 3 interviewers. Usually two faculty, and then the other is an alumni. There are behavioral style questions, as well as current events. It's an open file interview, and some people are also asked questions about something in their application.

    It’s a 30 minute personal interview. That’s what the interview packet I received says.

    @CoffeeQuestionMark What time was your interview today? I wonder if we maybe ran into each other haha. I actually met so many people that knew where I'm from and it's surprising because most people don't know where my town is hah

    My interview was 2:45 but I went to 3 of the morning classes in bustad 145.
    There were not very many people interviewing that late

    Did anyone ask when we'd hear? Last year was a week after but IS interviews were a lot earlier this year.

    2020 heard one week after the last interviews, but 2021 heard a few weeks after, and they also interviewed this time. I think they wait till all the interviews are over to send out decisions? 2021 and 2022 has IS both after OOS if I recall correctly.

    As an IS applicant, I just participated in the interviews these past two days. I have no idea how well my own interview went, but I do know that every other applicant I talked to seemed like such a great candidate. You all are really impressive! Best of luck

    I feel like our interview thing we got in the mail said something about them deliberating right away?

    I know that Jessica Scholfield said to contact her with any questions, so asking her might be the best bet?

    If you're in school still, invest yourself heavily into it. I'm trying to focus on myself more now too.

    Try to find something to invest yourself into for the next couple weeks. Or just relax honestly.

    Hey WSU applicants! A little off topic but I am going into my last year of undergrad (will either apply to vet school this Summer or next). I’m currently at WSU and I’m looking for a new room mate! Duplex with garage and fenced-in back yard in a quiet, residential neighborhood close to an off campus bus stop route. $515 rent per month plus $10 garbage, $25 WiFi and $45 electricity! I have one dog and one cat (see profile picture) along with occasional pet care of regular, very well behaved small dogs. I can have up to two more pets on the lease! Message me if you accept a seat at WSU and are interested!

    Idaho resident acceptances went out today! Congratulations to everyone accepted so far and good luck to those waiting to hear! ( I was rejected before interviews, but a good friend received her acceptance phone call this evening)

    Does anyone know if the panel/night events are business professional or casual? Also, anyone else going tonight?

    I went to the one two weeks ago, and a lot of people wore what they wore to their interviews, while others wore jeans and sweaters! I don't think there is an expected dress code.
