I applied ED as well and have not received an invitation. I was a little discouraged given that some candidates who’ve applied RD received invitations, but at the Open House I went to they emphasized that interviews are not indicative of acceptance, rather they are to clear doubts. I don’t know how true that is, but I can’t imagine too many of us not being admitted without an interview and I consider myself a pretty strong candidate (current UoC grad student, etc).

That's interesting. I was under the impression that everyone had to be interviewed to get in (even RD). Am I wrong in thinking this?

Retweet. I was under the impression that one HAD to be interviewed to get in.

I think either way you look at it it's a good thing. They're either considering you seriously and you've moved further in the process, or they want to get to know you better and you have the chance to make yourself look better!

The first date your application goes under review in your status checker. When you log into the status checker, your status goes from "Complete" to "Under Review" with a date (UR1), then "Under Review" with a different, later date (UR2), etc. Curious about when y'all think ED admits will go out? My money's on mid-December.
