Just received an invitation to interview! Does every applicant receive an interview or is this a good sign?

I believe everyone who interviewed ED was accepted. Don't read to much into this though! Good luck!

I am interviewing on Monday for RD. They emailed me yesterday and told me I had until the 7th because they want to get decisions out in mid-July.

Anyone who interviewed within the last 1-2 weeks have a status date change recently? I'm stuck on 6/24, a few days after the interview.

I interviewed yesterday and it updated right after to 7/6, not sure if that is a bad sign?

No, that's normal. I only asked about the status change because I've been at 6/24 for a while now.

I also interviewed yesterday and it updated to under review right after. I have a feeling we will be hearing back at the end of this week, latest early next week.

Mine updated to under review as of today as well. For what it's worth, I emailed them yesterday with a few additions to my application and they told me that my application was under review already, so they may not be able to get the new info to the committee. Seems as though decisions will be coming out shortly. Good luck to all!

Application "placed on hold" and I'll hear within a few weeks. Seems like a mini waitlist.

Held. What does this even mean? Is it different than wait list?
