Interested in applying, I don't really want to interview though. Would this impact admissions/scholly odds?

My guess it would be to decide whether to WL or not depending on your numbers because of YP

This is from earlier in the thread:

HYSenberg wrote:Lol so I asked to decline the interview request because the times were far out in the future and I am super busy working these days. I got a response from admissions saying no, it's not optional. YOU MUST INTERVIEW. I relented. You win this time, WUSTL.



So to answer your question.. yes. Seriously though, it's the most informal and relaxed 20 minute chat you'll have with someone you've never met before. I got the impression that there wasn't much I could say that would negatively affect my odds, it was more of a get-to-know-you and get-to-know-WUSTL type deal.

That's generally a good sign as I have read.

Rare though. It seems that if they're interested enough to give you an interview, you really just have to impress them/interview well hitting on all of the grading criteria they use for interviews (great thread on this somewhere). If you're not particularly well-spoken or if you raise red flags that may lean them towards YP, then obviously that won't be good. It seems a high proportion though of people who get interviewed and accepted soon after. I was :D

Best of luck everyone. :D


This is my thinking, too. Especially because there are a lot of schools that don't seem to have made more than a handful of offers yet, based on LSN. A bunch of the schools I applied to have huuuuuuuuuuuuge lists of "pending" applications and only one or two acceptances. Hopefully today's the day - I have 2/12 decisions so far, would love another acceptance before the holiday!

I may have missed this earlier in the thread but do we get packets in the mail or access to an admitted students site?
