Oh dear Lord please reschedule! Your focus should be on your family and if they don't understand that, that's pretty atrocious

sorry to hear about this. they should definitely be able to do that. i think many other schools enable applicants to reschedule through an automated process (where reschedule weblink exists on their scheduling web system and you could do that yourself) and they may even have sth like that.

So I already had my JSI a few weeks ago and I sent in a resume update to admissions this week. Can that delay the decision process at all? I assume not, right- they'll either add the new resume to my file or they just won't?

I am aware this might be a neurotic question. Finals are getting to me, lol.

Latest JS1s come by what time? This is longest they have been between js1 waves this cycle.

this probably means they're discussing the first several waves of js1s and the first wave of js2s should come shortly!! :D

Hopefully! I think after the interview the application has to be reviewed/approved by a faculty member (read this in an interview with Jessica?). Not sure how long that takes.

At the info session I attended they told us that all apps are reviewed by a faculty member; no one is accepted without being "OK'd" by a faculty member.

I had an interview in Mid-November and my application status check still reflects the date it was completed, which was the end of October. Is this normal?

Is it possible there may be another (JS1) wave later this week? :) I've heard that thus far, they've usually come out earlier in the week.

Going through the list from last year there seemed to be a few Wednesday and Friday JS1s, so hopefully.

MS9 has some cycle data for those interested. Still early, but seems like apps and scores are way up this year. Ensue panic:
