My interview was tragic (it lasted only 9 mins) and since I'm an international student I was expecting to be dinged right away.
So those of you who bombed the interview, stay optimistic!!
edit: interviewed in late January
This seems to be a common theme. Chicago is really adept at making applicants feel like their interviews were awful.
ABSOLUTELY. I got off Skype after my interview convinced that not only did I not get into their school, but I also would never want to go there after such a cold and unpleasant experience. I wish I had known then that the interviews are not all very personable, but the people at Chicago are, and that a cold interview doesn't mean that they don't like you.
If Chicago could change one thing about their admissions process, I wish it was to make their interviews more conversational.
that's the exact impression I had of the interview.
cold and not so friendly
felt like the interviewer just wanted to get the thing over with..
