Submitted on 10/4/12 for rolling admissions, invited today. I doubt geography means much, but I know some people on here think it does, so I'll tell you I'm from the pacific NW.

Nothing new here either. I don't have very high hopes now, to be honest.

Invited to Interview on dec 3rd.
Submitted application on Nov 13th for regular decision.


Hmm that's a big jump from yesterdays invite submit date at 10/4 to today of 11/13. Perhaps there are different groupings within rolling decisions?

From what I heard, they don't even start reading RD applications until november, so even if you submit in octobe, you won't hear back for an interview until the next month. I think the pace picks up drastically after thanksgiving. One girl i know submitted around December 1st last year, got her invite around the 17th or so. Not saying that's gonna happen necessarily this year but food for thought.

So, to play devil's advocate a bit, does that mean if you submitted an app between 10/4 and 11/13 and haven't received an invite yet that you're not getting one?

If you don't hear by mid-december, it's probably a ding.

I submitted mine on November 20th. I'll let you all know when I hear but they explicitly describe their process as chronological so I assume I will hear soon.

Woah! That's the fastest interview invite I've heard of! Congrats. But then again, you do have very strong stats, so the first reader probably recommended an invite for you right away.

Is it correct that this year, our status will be "submitted" the entire time until we get an invite or get dinged?

Even afterwards. I got accepted almost 2 months ago and it still says "Submitted." You just get additional status updates on the next page.

Guys one quick question as I am still grappling with the community part of the essay.... can the sub questions of Essay 1A and 1B be answered in one single continuous essay? Has anyone done this?

You technically can, but i suggest dividing it into 2 separate essays within the same word document. I did it that way so i can easily keep track of the word count, and it's very easy for adcom to see where one 1A ends and 1B begins.

I don't know that it is expressly forbidden but I would highly recommend AGAINST it. They are two separate questions with two separate word counts. Even though they are a part A and part B to the same question #1 I wouldn't just write it as one giant essay.
