Who's been making the calls? your screener interviewer or a recruiter or other?

Usually I have a good sense on how these things go. Apparently, not this time.

I had four interviews that I thought went swimmingly. However, my lower T14 status and relatively weak GPA (under 3.6) always made it a long shot.

Congrats to all!

Don't write it off yet. Again, they interviewed over 80 people on Friday alone. The decision is guaranteed by Tuesday not Friday night. If the calls are being made by screeners, they could very well be too busy tonight.

I don't know. They said a "decision" is guaranteed. So who knows? Chances are pretty good that they called everyone they were excited about tonight. Email dings might go out tomorrow or something.

If you think anything below a 3.6 is a relatively weak GPA, then many many many people are screwed

Offer between 7 and 8 Monday night, by screener, Friday interview, but they specifically said that day would yield quicker results so it's possible others (who interviewed earlier in the week) will hear back a little later. Also, didn't get to attend any of the receptions.

Since the screeners are making the calls, I think that the timing is dependent on when they are not busy.

If you received a call, would you mind sharing your screener's initials?

Damn still nothing. I am getting less hopeful. I had amazing interviews and great creds too. I must have done something that I didn't notice.
