Were you answering the question someone asked you before that this when you need to respond/deposit by? If so thats a really quick turnaround they're asking for. Wondering if there'll be movement today and tomorrow for stronger candidates and later in the week for weaker ones if those offered admission don't deposit and go elsewhere…

How long did you have to wait from being under review to getting an interview request?

My application was complete on 6/23 and I got an email saying I was in queue for review. My interview was 8 days later. I didn't check for when I actually went under review.

I received an interview request yesterday, as did a friend of mine. It seems like they sent a lot of requests out yesterday. Anyone who already interviewed how soon did you hear back?

5 days for me, but I had a long holiday (4th of July). Some earlier posters I think heard back after a day or two.

Sorry to hear. Hate to say it at this point, but I think those (me included) that have not received an interview request are going to get dinged/wait-listed soon.

Did they give you any kind of idea how large of a class size they are taking or when people should hear back after interviews? I heard someone say on here earlier about 15.

They told me in my email they "received over 150 applicants for the 15 available spots in our 2L class"

Any information/guesses on how many of the 150 are interviewed, and on how many of those interviewed get offers?
