I also got the resume thing, which is confusing because I swear I redid it in their format. I don't think that it means anything in particular, because usually they decide pretty close to April. Maybe they are changing things up this year?
I changed mine to one page but it was a pdf. Was yours uploaded in word? And I think things are different because of the interview process not being a stress interview & in the past people had multiple interviews and in person interviews if they were waitlisted... Maybe they are going to try to speed things up and give us rolling decisions? Like why say the placeholder school part
I wouldn't read too much into the resume thing, they've done that for the past couple of years at least. Also the stress interview is also something from years back, I interviewed with 3 interviewers across two cycles (reapplicant) and never had a stress interview and ultimately was a SEO. And I doubt they'll give rolling admissions because the firms are snobby about schools so you must deposit and the placeholder is mostly just so you have a completed resume that you just update once you deposit. Just my thinking.
