late NU interview = disadvantage?

Postby jfb » Thu Dec 02, 2010 11:13 pm

Just finishing up my NU app, and was not able to get an interview date that worked for me until 1/10/11.

I feel that numbers-wise I've got a good shot, but I'm wondering if having my interview so late will put me at a disadvantage. Anyone have any idea?

That's getting quite late in the cycle, where you'll have to contend with the horde of December scorers.

However, those applicants will be interviewing in Feb. and March most likely... right? Unless they scheduled their interview before they got their score.

Interviews end in late February, and yes you can interview without a score.

Numberswise I like your chances and don't think the late interview will hurt you that much. I think you'll come down to the WE or not question.

Having not done the interview at all last year and regretting it, I think a Jan. interview is better than no interview at all.
