I was planning to apply around Nov-Dec, when my app will be perfect, but I will actually apply as soon as the first one here will post his admission, with an incomplete application, rushing the personal statement and forgetting the addenda I prepared carefully in advance.

I actually meant doing the optional statement (diversity), one optional essay and an addendum. At this point I'd be maxing out the app and don't want them to ignore everything I wrote if that's the case

Ahh ok, I thought you meant do all 5 options for the 'Optional Response' section haha.

Yeah I think you'll be fine then, my bad for misinterpreting!!

Signed up for a group interview in late September that got cancelled. Just got an alumni interview request today. Hopefully this one works out! At least now I can stop wondering if I somehow snuck in without an interview.

I didn't think mine was weird at all, it was just a group discussion. But maybe I just had really normal people interviewing with me.

Last year, my friend told me they had them go over C&F issues and share a fun fact.

(Side note: Monica, I stalk you on LSN because you are a goddess. Those numbers!)

Awe that's so sweet! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it lol :)

And mine was weird because one of the people I interviewed w/ was strange & kind of trying to stand out by giving answers that disagreed with everyone else's sentiments... also, it kind of felt like Dean Cornblatt was trying to intimidate us all. He gave out Admissions info & basically had us decide whether we would admit or reject certain people (not the ones in the room, but people from years past) as if he was, like, warning us...

I don't think it should be any cause for concern. I've seen some people on LSN get admitted without any interview at all.

I got the interview request email with the wave early this week, just haven't been contacted since agreeing.

Thanks to both of y'all for input. I guess I will call if they don't get back to me within the 7 days the email said.

What is the average wait time between completing the alumni interview and a decision? Same as group-interviews?
