Woohoo, congrats freestallion! I'm sure you'll rock your interview.[/quote]
Thank you, I'm sooo thrilled to even be in the running here!
Are chances of getting in at this point much lower, though?[/quote]
Much lower? I certainly wouldn't think so, especially considering that interviews began a bit later this year than in previous cycles. In any case, I like to think of your chances being unique to you individually - an evaluation of your numbers, softs, and interviewing ability should ultimately determine your possibility of acceptance. I know this answer is banal, but it's surely more accurate. With your acceptance at Berkeley (which suggests a unique background/good softs) and your numbers, I think you've got a good shot. And I don't think they enter each round of KB1s thinking, "we need to aim for X
percent acceptance rate for this batch".
Congratulations! Very pleased to see you got the email, and there's absolutely no need to worry about the interview. I just had my KB1, and she is extraordinarily kind and a joy to talk to.[/quote]
Thanks for the insight. I do think I have some interesting softs, but I also heard the chance of acceptance decreases after Thanksgiving, so I was just curious to learn more.
And thank you everyone else![/quote]
I think what you're referring to is for applications that are submitted after Thanksgiving. That's why Admissions Deans say submit before Thanksgiving if possible. I mean...most people get in later on than early lol.
