Seems like almost everyone in this thread that was interviewed received an acceptance.

Did the folks who interviewed feel from the tone of it like it was a formality? Were any difficult/specific questions asked about your application materials?

For those that were interviewed, were the questions pretty standard (Resume, PS, etc) or Penn specific?

Are you asking whether you can go into an interview without researching the school that will be interviewing you? The question should suggest the answer.

Congrats! Still sitting at 6/18 UR 2. No idea why I haven't been dinged yet but I'm sure it will come soon.

Maybe not. They said they are shooting for a 15 person transfer class, which is smaller than I think most expected, but not minuscule. As soon as Columbia acceptances, along with more Harvard and NYU come out, I wouldn't be surprised if they start interviewing more.

For all the people who were accepted today, when do you have to accept the offer?

Bad sign if we interviewed earlier this week and didn't hear back today?

Seems strange given that they usually use interviews as a formality before acceptance and the people who interviewed this week were accepted today. How did the interview go? It's likely they will just send it tomorrow morning.

Thought it went well; hopefully they are just being cautious with numbers as the NYU/Columbia/Harvard decisions come out.
