I expect they'll give me my decision sometime next week.


You applied past the deadline and got an interview? Also, what makes you "expect" they'll give you your decisions "sometime next week?"


Yes, I applied very much past the last deadline and got an interview. The emails said the very last day to interview was April 18th.

I expect that I will get my decision because 1. "I don't know the general time frame for this" but they did tell me that the first day of work is May 19th (or May 27th, depending on where you get placed) and I don't think they'll give me less than a month to quit my job and move across the country.

and

2. I also expect because I had a good interview, I'm a minority and I'm going to a T6 school, TLS wisdom says that's all I need; the cat's in the bag. Who am I to disagree with such good news? Oh and it's for NY.


I wouldn't agree that you're a shoo-in. Plenty of t-6 people get dinged every year. I got into every t-14 school I applied to, including 5 out of the t-6 and I'm still worried about being accepted. You aren't entitled to any position.

I agree with this and everyone else. You're very cocky for someone who could care less about applying on time like the rest of us.

PS, the majority of us are minorities going to top schools so that doesn't make you special.

Try humility because that might be a better look for you.

Does SEO always let the NY people know first?

It seems like that from the past just because most of them will have the earlier start date. I just hope to find out something this week.

How many people applied to DC and are still waiting to hear back?

No one to my knowledge. I know a handful of people who've been accepted and all of them only had one interview.

Did they actually do double interviews? I mean I got repeat emails requesting interviews but we were told to ignore them if we already interviewed right?

Well that certainly doesn't bode well for me. Was it people who already deposited?

Not everyone gets a follow up interview.
So, if you didn't get one, it doesn't mean that you did not get in.

I have a follow-up interview this week so they're still doing them.
Does anyone know how they differ from the first interview?

I also recieved an email stating to follow up. Anyone know what we should expect? I'm guessing this is a good sign.

It just says fill out a google doc with a time that you can talk for 10-15 minutes via Skype.

For people receiving a follow-up interview request, who was your first interview with?
