Also got an invite. So much angst.

Anyone have strong views on:
1. alumni vs. off-campus
2. later in day vs. first slot in morning

hm2009 and w103psp you guys will do great wherever you go. I am really sorry to hear about Wharton, they missed out on truly great candidates. I am keeping my fingers crossed for the rest of your apps and interviews - knock their socks off! I don't have a Booth invite yet, and when I saw "Your application decision is now available" in the app page for Wharton, I was ready to crash (that's how dings look like), but I was proven wrong with an invite. Time to start preparing. Let me know if you want to do interview prep together or just chat at any point.

For those who got the invite I have 2 words: SCHEDULE NOW! Everyone got their invites today, which means interview slots will fly out. I booked on campus.

I wish I understood how adcoms make decisions. I got a yes from LBS and a ding from Wharton. I think my Wharton app was actually much better. You're the other way around - really confused how they work!

The next people to posts about a ding/interview, could you also mention when your email notification was sent? Not sure if others of you are still waiting to hear back and not sure if these results are coming in sporadically or if my application didn't get processed this round. Thanks!

Did you check the application site? I found out there around 5:10 and then I got the e-mail at 5:12. Generally they send out everything in one round, but I may be wrong. If you didn't get an e-mail check the app.

Got the invite today at around 5:10 PM. The email came a couple of minutes later.

Congrats to everyone that got the invites and I'm sorry to those of you who did not. Keep your heads up and keep working hard.

My application page still says: Complete - Round 1.

Am I alone in this?

Once you log in to the online application it should show "decision status" beneath the recommendation providers. If you got an invite, it would have a link there. If you haven't received anything and there is no indication of a status change, you should probably check with ad office on Monday.

Which interview option is better? Interviewed by the AdCom or by an alumnus? I'm an int'l applicant.

Thanks!

Congrats to those who got the invitation and "Chin Up!" to the rest

Hmmm... interesting... when did you submit your application?
Seems like the system recognizes you as round 1 but you did not get a decision today...
