3.15/166



Yes. Everyone on the forum who has rejected the phone interview has been rejected from Case. It's not hard - they just want to see if you're really interested in the school. The phone interview I had was just someone telling me about all the awesome things going on at Case - and it won me over.

So I returned case's call for a phone interview today, but no one answered. Am I screwed?

I doubt it. We were just demolished with snow today and most of the universities in the region are closed, including Case.

So Ive got a phone interview coming up, and Im a little nervous. I was wondering if anyone could let me in on how theirs went. Things like how long it lasted and what kinds of questions did they ask. Any info would be really solid. Thanks.

I had my phone interview with yesterday. Does anyone know how long it has been taking between the interview and a decision being rendered?

I'm waiting for my "on hold" app to be reviewed in April, after I would have already put down a deposit somewhere. What do you all think about paying sticker at Case?

Depends on your other choices, I guess.

Another question. I just looked at my status checker for like the second time. Is it normal that I would go into review after my interview?

I wouldn't read into the status checker too much; it really doesn't give any hints as to whether you're going to get in or not. And I don't think ANYTHING is normal when it comes to the status checker, and that goes for all schools. It's like the least helpful thing in the world. All it does is cause anxiety for us with its ambiguous and cryptic status "updates." I gave up trying to interpret anything from the status checker sites. Anyway, you had an interview, right? You survived it? I'd say you're most likely in. Put more stock in the fact that you had an interview than in anything status checker is telling you.

I was just going to ask if anyone itt was going to the preview weekend, but I see wileyman beat me to it. I have already got my hotel and took time off work to go so Ill definitely be there. It seems case is going all out with a trolley this year which sounds pretty rad.

They did the trolly last year too. Although, it was kind of a let down. It's nice, until the second half, where you are just driving down one of Cleveland's depressing desolate roads to get back. Just try it ignore that part.
