I submitted my application on the deadline date. But the status hasn't been changed ever since then.

If someone is reviewing the application, would the status be changed to "under review"?

Thanks!

Long time lurker on GC. Hope to be a regular contributor.

I had my interview with Simon Alum day before yesterday on skype audio and video.

Applied in Rd1 15th Oct. Invited around 10th Nov.
Profile : GMAT 730, 3.5 WEx in IT, Indian, Female, EC: volunteering exp.since last four years

This is how my Simon interview went:

He took first 10 mins to explain about himself and then he asked me to tell about myself.
What will you do after Simon?
A teamwork example
How my engineering skills will help me in finance?
How will I contribute at Simon?
What geographic area do I plan to work in after Simon? Have i been to US?Do I plan to stay in US?
Finally if i have any questions for him.

The interviewer was very friendly. He said he enjoyed talking to me. He even pointed out why he was asking me a particular question. The interview lasted for around 35 mins.
Hope this helps.

I said it won't depend on the location but on the kind of opportunity I will get and then built my answer around it. I think he liked what I said.

I've heard that it takes about 6-8 weeks. This seems typical for schools with rolling admission.
