I had my interview on Tuesday (so fairly recently) but I have a job offer on the table for this summer and I don't want to turn that down only to get rejected from SEO (or, consequently, accept that and then get accepted to SEO)
I'd call up SEO and see what they say. They can't give any offers until you send an enrollment letter, but I think the earliest anyone got accepted last yr was March and I think they ED'd (not positive though, wasn't me).
I had a similar scenario and ended up in a position where it was SEO or nothing. I took the opportunity whenever I could send them new info (updated resume, recommendation letter, etc.) to write a mini LOCI of how much I wanted SEO. I don't know if it helped or hurt, think I did that twice or three times max though.
I interviewed this time last yr and heard back last week of April. Best of luck.
