Another 3/1 UR with no interview invite... sad day for me. Stats in profile.

I'm hoping I'm not the only person wondering about this, but is anyone considering preemptively booking tickets to ASW even without an acceptance in hand? Seems like at worst, the money will just go toward another Southwest flight, and at best, it'll be significantly cheaper. Or is that just crazy talk?

Seems premature. And w/ 185 seats in Chicago's incoming class and it being this late in the cycle, I'd have to be VERY confident of my admission to book that flight.

+1. Also, assuming the change fee for a flight is $90, add that to the flight cost and the total is probably close to what it would cost to wait a few weeks before buying the ticket anyway.

Points well taken. For what it's worth, Southwest doesn't charge change/cancellation fees, so the only real issue is finding another flight to take sometime in the next year, but still, that's definitely a situation unique to folks who have Southwest as an option. I'm not aware of another airline with that policy.

I don't think they strictly go in chronological order. (early December complete; interview invite 3 weeks ago)

They might just not like me very much. I'm sure they can't be going strictly in order of submission at this point.

I briefly had the same thought tonight, then I dismissed it as crazy (and inviting bad juju).

Based on LSN, it looks like they launch one every three weeks. But given that we are so close to May 1st, I assume they'll starting sending them in two week intervals. So next week on Friday! :D

obviously, this is pure speculation, but if I was an admissions rep, I would view turning down an interview invite as a giant red flag.

Almost certainly this would end your chances. Why wouldn't you interview?

And in order to tell us, they have to look at our freaking apps first!

It's this crazy interview process... It's slowing them down immensely.
