The committee does anticipate admitting students from the waitlist in the next month."
So I thought it was over, time to withdraw, but I got an interview request today! I'm probably going to do a Skype interview soon. Have other waitlisted people received interview requests? And how fast is the turnover from an interview?
I got this interview request, also. Really exciting news. I'm also completely in the dark as far as the behind-the-scenes logistics of it are concerned, as I can't be too sure if this is only the case with the candidates they're looking at seriously, or something that they're doing on a broader scale, but this looks fortuitous nonetheless. Best of luck!
Congratulations! Did you interview before you were waitlisted? Keep us updated on how it goes!
This goes to all the waitlisters: I had my interview with Will Fruhwirth today. No curveballs, just a lot of getting to know you, your reasons for studying the law (at WUSTL and St. Louis, in particular), and addressing any weak spots in your application (test scores, work lapses, etc). I think I did terribly due to some nerves, this being my number top choice institution and all, but I won't dwell on that. I hope this information helps you all. It's my opinion that they're using these interviews differently than they would for the candidates that they didn't waitlist first, but I could be wrong. It's just a hunch based on some of the things that he said at the end of the interview.
