How likely is someone to get in if they get an interview request, assuming the interview goes fine?
Checking in, I am the poor sod who was placed on reserve after my interview. I know of another person who was placed on reserve after their interview as well.
Both of us had turnaround times that were very quick - so quick that I feel they could not have seriously reviewed my interview at all. I called the school to discuss some technical problems with my interview prior to receiving a decision (mic trouble, video seemed frozen for a bit, caused a delay and so some answers were cut off, etc) and was told that the interviews are mostly a formality and have little effect on admissions decisions. My friend said that his interview went really well, and he was surprised at being waitlisted so quickly. Our stats are very similar, so in that regard we are comparable applicants.
I think that our files were already placed in reserve prior to the interview request, and that the interview is simply a requirement for all applicants that are not going to be dinged. So, interview requests are definitely not a lock for admission, but you probably won't be rejected after it at the least.
