Still just "complete" as of 1/17....
I feel like I'm one of those people they get the application of and just laugh at, ball it up, Jordan it into a waste basket, and yell "NEXT!" like some Game of Thrones king.

Sigh. Just cut me loose, Chicago. Let this injured bird fly away...

I went UR2 about a week ago but I'm almost certainly a WL. Does anyone know what the pattern is in that case? Should I expect a UR3 first? Sorry if this has already been answered.

Last time, there was a wave of interview invites a week before decisions went out, and I think there were also a lot of date changes for people receiving an acceptance. We haven't seen either of those things, have we?

My money is on interview invites this week (this evening, if the pattern holds) and decisions next Tuesday.

Off to check out the interview thread. For those who've interviewed recently, have the questions pretty much remained the same?

Congrats to all the new invitees! Did they give y'all a deadline for scheduling it? If recall correctly, the last wave occurred shortly after of interview invites.

Last wave of decisions was a week + one day after the round of invites.

Yup!


Yes, the interview thread was an awesome resource for me. In terms of style, I'd say my interview with Chicago felt a bit more formal/less conversational than Harvard's or Virginia's - my interviewer essentially listened to my responses then moved on to the next question (rather than tailoring subsequent questions to my responses and making it flow like a conversation). Questions were all general, not tailored to my resume or PS. Good luck - you got this.

Didn't get an invite...hoping that is because I just went UR2 on 2/9 and that a ding or WL isn't on the way.

It seems like a large majority do but a non-zero amount don't, so still take it seriously obviously. If your numbers are in acceptance range and you get an interview, you should feel confident.
