On an unrelated note, is the interview necessary in order to get accepted? Asking for a friend who was too lazy to use Forum Search.
I too am awaiting a interview request...or really anything at this point. From the discussion here it is highly likely that an interview is required for admission. (This is also based on people who disregard the interview request getting WL)
What are your dates?
An interview is not
required for admission. They're trying to start an interview system similar to Harvard's where it would be a necessary condition for acceptance but as of last year, a large portion of the class was admitted without ever having interviewed. It is probably a smaller number that will be admitted sans interview this year-- they've sent interview requests to more people-- but it is by no means a set requirement.
That being said, if you are offered an interview, not accepting it (excepting extreme circumstances such as being military personnel currently abroad) is a sign that you aren't that interested in attending and could hurt your chances of admissions.
