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.

One of their admissions officers said if you knew they were your #1 and you didn't care how you would pay for it via own/family money or student loans, it was the way for you.

But their website said don't apply ED if you need institutional aid which the person answering the phone clarified to include student loans which sounds weird... Literally not sure if I can ED or not, they're my #1 choice because I'm applying to the PT program.


You should ED only if it's your first choice, you have doubts about getting in with RD, and you don't mind paying full price. You're basically accepting the fact that they will offer you very little if any scholarship if you get accepted ED, which is probably why they discussed institutional support.

I had a really great time at the group interview in NYC yesterday, I reflect almost everyone else's sentiments on this board - it was pretty fun!

Does anywhere have the image of the number of interviews offered and percentage of interviewees accepted?

I swear I saw it on TLS a few weeks ago.

I went complete on 11/13 and got my interview request on Friday. In the email they said they generally send out the requests on Fridays, so no point in stressing about it any other day of the week.

Anyone else attend a group interview before applying? I interviewed late October but didn't submit until 11/20. Might I hear back sooner than expected?

Haven't heard either way yet but in my recent group interview, Dean Cornblatt said we should hear within two weeks. Not sure if that was specific to our group or if it's because they're trying to wrap things up with applicants they've met by the end of the semester.

He also told my recent interview group 2/3 weeks, though he said it could take longer due to the holidays

First decision back -- dinged via email. Not too pressed about it...just means I'm that much closer to the right school. Good luck to those still waiting!

Did alumni interview 11/14. Thought I did good. Got an email today saying that they’re postponing their decision on me and “once we have a better sense of the entire applicant pool, the Committee on Admissions will review your application again.” :?

So is it like WL? Anyone on the same boat?
