Just got done with my interview. Dean Post said, "you'll hear before the end of the week." Not sure how much help that is for all of us waiting on that ED2 response but at least we know it won't be till the 31st haha

Are interviews as important of an indicator as by Chicago and Harvard? Or more random?

I'd say it's more random, I got in RD without an interview and I know the same is true for a bunch of people

I wouldn't say it's random but definitely very rare. Most people don't get interviewed. But I think it's for extreme splitters or for applicants that have something unconventional.

Interesting. It would appear they're using interviews for ED splitters.

Did anyone who got admitted in the big wave a couple weeks ago get anything in the mail yet?

PHL-NYC standard mail takes I think 6 business days. Lets say they sent it didn't go out until the 12 it might not come until tomorrow or might be in our mailbox right now

For anybody who's interviewing today/yesterday/tomorrow let us know how it goes! Curious if any insights into the cycle. Also from what I understand Penn interviews are rare so I'm interested in what happens.

I've been stuck at UR1 since 12/18. LSAT and GPA above 75th... is this a bad sign?
