in other blind attempts at optimism, I had my Vandy interview today and my interviewer said I was the best interviewee he's ever had! Score! Plus the athletes coordinator that is my boss (I tutor student athletes) his Dad is a professor at Vandy, I'd like to think that might get me some lee way even though it won't. at least it helps me sleep at night.
OH SHIT, GEORGETOWN NO!!!!!!!!!!!
Its truly an honor and very humbling to be in the same batch as someone who works as hard as you; whatever it may be
Thanks wootwootDC! I appreciate it! If we are accepted I will buy you a drink at ASD!

My initial inclination is that it means I'm likely to be WL, but through a strong interview might push myself into an acceptance. (Sorry if this has already been covered, I wasn't able to read through 80+ pages of posts)
This is usually a great sign, and unless you're a complete dumbass they usually accept you or at worst waitlist you. If you were rejected they wouldn't waste their/your time with an interview.
