Update: it seems that they started to send interview invitations...
I've received an email saying "After an initial review of your application, you have been selected for an admissions interview." It looks like an interview invitation to me....

Sure is, I got one too. Good luck!

I've read on businessweek under bschools/mbapremium/nov2004/bs20041122_2229_bs043.htm that interview invitations go to all domestic applicants? Does any know if this is true? I feel less special if that is so.

I think that data might be out of date. If you look at this:
http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/ra ... ustin.html

It shows just about half of applicants are interviewed, and 100% of admitted were interviewed.

I submitted about 45 minutes before R1 deadline.

Talking to current students, I have heard that about 50% of the number of people who get interviewed are offered admission - This seems like the norm for most business schools

Hey Guys,

I received my interview invite too today. I am located in Chicago. I am wondering is there any preferred option for the interview. Is it better to go for an onsite interview or an offsite interview works the same way?

What are you guys doing?

One question to those of you who're gonna schedule an off-campus interview: HOW and WHERE do we select the alumni interviewers? UT has given the instructions in the email, but hasn't provided any link where we could do this.. :?

Edit: Nvr..I found it. For those having a similar doubt, go here:
