Haha I hear that. That's awesome that your three weeks is up on Monday! I wish I was in the same boat.. I have to wait until next Friday... sighhh

Hey Flow. I was wondering if you've seen any activity on your status tracker. Your decision date is almost here!

Interview request today. Interesting, I didn't remember they do this. Quick turnaround, surprised to hear anything so early.

Anyone know what this suggests? They're probably not going to interview someone who they were about to reject, but I don't know if this means I'm borderline to them or they're trying to gauge my interest or what. In any event, it'd be nice to be able to speak to an alumni.

Wow, that's interesting... I can't imagine it's a bad thing. At the very least it shows that they're interested in you! Are you an ED applicant?

Yea, I doubt they would do it for ED. Not enough time with their three week turn around. Congrats for those with interviews! It's a great opportunity

After searching TLS it seems like interviews are granted to borderline candidates (splitters/reverse splitters, i.e. 171/3.2 or 168/3.9). Also seems quite useful:

Those aren't the sexiest of odds. At least there's a 93% chance you won't get denied.

I dunno, I think it's not too bad considering interviews are mainly for splitters/reverse splitters.

Looks like they started coming out mid-Oct last year. Since we've passed that, I would expect earliest to be early November.

Does that chart include ED tho? Pretty unrepresentative of RD if it does...

It must. But still, the number of ED applicants is small.

Mine is still 10/20...but then again you didn't have a 10/20 complete date. I wonder what it all means...

*edit* wow, you're in at Duke? Did you ED to GULC?

Each time the date changes I assume that means they have opened/accessed your file.

Are we assuming we're going to see some serious movement next week? The first big round seemed to be 10/26 last year according to LSN.
