I had my interview on Friday and shared a very similar experience. The interviewer stuck to a loose Q&A, but it was mostly conversational and very friendly. Good overall experience that, in my opinion, reflects well on the school.



Mine was similar, but it was super long, more than 100 minutes!!!

such a long wait compared to the other schools I applied to in Dec/Jan...sounds like round 3 applicants won't hear anything until the week of the 9th based on last round, right?

Correct, and it can be any time that week, not just that day.

Glad it's not just me. Hopefully they'll ask us R1/R2 waitlisters for updates here shortly in preparation for the R3 decision week the same way they did before the R2 decision week.
