I've submitted my app on 4th, January, and I got interview invitation from BU today via e-mail.
Is it common for them to send invi. this early or do they just send to all of applicants?
They said, "The Admission Committee has started its review of your application and would like to learn more about you by inviting you to interview."

Ditto, got an invite yesterday too. Was wondering if getting it this early is normal for BU.

I was accepted to BU in Round 1. I got an interview invite the day after I submitted my application, so yes, BU AdCom works quickly!
