Also 11/04. I requested an interview and it took the interviewer 8 weeks
to schedule the meetup.
But he was awesome and said he would 1000% recommend me, so it was worth it.
The interviews have 0 impact on your admission or rejection. So that 1000% recommendation doesn't really do anything for you, but that's still cool that your interview went well!
Proof of this? I was under the impression that an interview was similar to an additional essay in terms of weight on your application. Its not going to work miracles, but it might push you over the edge in either direction.
EDIT: In fact, I talked to a professor there when I visited who told me the interview would be helpful in gaining admission. I'm not sure how much merit this has since he's not on the admissions council, but he seemed to think it meant something.
