Volatile usually means lots of sudden changes. I wonder if they got a lot more applications than usual lately?

Seems they're getting less.

So, word on the street is that there is still some scholly money for people who have to interview? I'm at one median, and at the 25 percentile of the other. Hoping on just a little bit of moneys :cry:

Got this email too... so was this sent out to everyone who doesn't have a decision yet or just a certain group? I just went under review a few days ago and then get this. ARGH

I wonder if this means they will be more generous with scholarship money. I applied in October, was accepted in December. Hadn't really considered Wake given another offer I have, but a decent scholarship might change my mind.

My guess is it's got sent to everyone who wasn't an auto admit or auto ding.

Me, but I'm an admit (which I assume you didn't mean by "anybody"). I'm hoping this means good news on the scholarship front...

Geez Wake, way to suck all the hope and excitement from the interview request. I feel like I am interviewing for a waitlist spot after reading that dire message.

They probably want to keep the class size around 150 instead of 180 like last year...could be a reason for the delay in decisions and/or scholarship offers.

Wake had a class of 179 last year (which is much higher than usual), so I expect the class to be much smaller this year regardless of the drop in applications nationwide.

I did my video interview this morning but naturally it messed up after I was doing so well! It skipped over the second question, and never started the timer for my last question so I assumed it wasn't recording - but it was -_-. I submitted a request to resubmit and I really hope it goes through! I felt so confident about my first half of the interview. Hopefully, I will hear back soon from WF and they will allow me to resubmit! Bummer it's a Saturday though!

How long is the whole process? And just standard questions I assume? And I bet they will let you resubmit, as far as admissions people go, WE seems very happy to help everyone!

Dealt with 10-15 admins last cycle, Wake was easily the best. Shouldn't be a problem.

That would be very frustrating, especially since it's just a 5min interview. I did my interview yesterday and it went pretty good I thought. I wish we had a little longer for each question though. Good luck!

Well that was less than awesome. I had similar problems with mmine. The interface skipped over the middle two questions, I went directly from question 1 to question 4. Definitely submitting a request for a redo.
