I applied on 9/6 with numbers that aren't going to make me stand out (3.67/159). UGPA will go up after the semester ends (probably to a 3.716). I have compelling softs (interned at the White House, for the Philly District Attorney's Office, published with a professor, research assistant, teaching assistant, etc.). Sent an email on 11/17 asking about status, and also asking for an interview. Interview is tomorrow morning 11/22. Unsure where I stack up, if they'll even be interested, or if the interview offer was to appease me because I asked. Any insights would be greatly appreciated!
I would strongly consider retaking. A 165 with your gpa and above average softs would really open a lot of doors and put you in a better position to negotiate scholarships. To put things in perspective, I'm considering a retake with 3.88 and a 166. If you don't retake, WUSTL may very well admit you anyway but with little $.
Good luck whichever direction you go!
