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.
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.
