really? that sounds different - I was admitted in R1 and they called everybody the day before the deadline with offers.

anyway, calm down folks - my interview invite and admission offer both came right at the last minute. as rhyme and others have said, there isn't much evidence that the best candidates get invites first, or anything.

easier said than done I know. good luck anyway guys!

Nothing today *sigh*

The only reason I am stressing out about this is because I feel that I am a really strong candidate for the school, so I am in disbelief that I haven't gotten an interview invite yet!

Maybe they read my essay and deduced that I was a megalomaniac. Dammit!

:-D

Had my on-campus interview today. Very different from my Kellogg interview in that it was more formal and structured, probably b/c this was on-campus with the admissions office whereas my Kellogg interview was with an alumnus in a coffee shop.

That being said, I enjoyed the interview and conversation with the 2nd year student that conducted it - and it confirmed why Booth is my first choice.

No unexpected questions. Asked me to walk him through my resume, why MBA (and why Booth MBA), short-term and long-term goals, interests outside of work. They schedule the interviews in 30 minute increments and it went very, very fast.

Now, it is all out of my hands! Don't know how I can wait until March 23rd/24th to hear back from Booth!

I didn't receive an email invite...but on a whim I logged into the system today and was able to schedule an interview. I called admissions, and they told me that if I was able to access the system, then I had been invited.

My application went complete on the 22nd.

I also didn't receive any emails... but just checked online and am also able to schedule interviews... Could this just be a bug? Anyone else seeing this?

I went complete on the 26th.

Hopefully a bug on the email side of things, and not the ability to schedule. :|

Ditto! Don't worry niraja, they're saving the best for last :)

I did get an invite to interview for NYU today, which makes me feel a TON better about not having one from Chicago yet!

Definitely not a bug... I called and they confirmed I had been invited to interview but that there was a problem with the email system.

Status still says complete.

Good luck!

I got a friendly email from Chicago Booth this morning inviting me for a interview.

For those of you who haven't received invites yet. Just hold on. I know its easier said than done but there are still good chances you will get an invite.

Submitted: 1/6
Went Complete: 1/21
Invited to Interview: 2/9

I have heard (ok read) the argument about the zero correlation between when your app was completed to interview invite time a few times, and I want to believe it. BUT all the evidence on this forum points to the contrary. I don't see people getting invited whose apps were completed earlier on 6/ 7 or 10/11 (like mine) getting invited anymore

... sigh..


Keep hope alive. Mine went complete on 01/07 and I got the invite two days ago. I am international.
