Anyone have any intelligence on how your chances of getting in change once you get an interview??

If the school accepts ~20% of applicants what % do they interview??

Nothing today thus far, eh? Two weeks post-interview... every time I check my inbox my heart starts racing.


I feel exactly the same way. I received an email yesterday letting me know that they had received my interviewer sheet (submitted for j-term 8/18, invited to interview 9/19, interview 10/1, interview sheet status update 10/4), and my application has moved to the next stage. So I'm guessing the big news will be coming soon, one way or another. This whole process is quite nerve-wrecking!! Best of luck to all!

Congrats mtk232!! I submitted ED on 10th Sep, but have not heard anything yet. I noticed on my application status page that the received date for my university transcript is 27th Sep...

Just wondering when is the date for yours?

They accept ~15%-18% of applicants - around 30% get an interview.

Congrats, Trivi. My app also went complete on 09/21 and I've yet to hear back one way or the other (for those in a similar boat).

When you guys say "submitted", you mean "completed", correct? I submitted my application 9/14 but my last rec didn't go in until 10/3.

These % are similar to HBS. Probability(Accept|Interview) = 50-60%

It's been more or less 4 business days since you submitted your app. Relax...you probably won't hear anything for at least a couple of weeks.

Last year there were people getting interview invites into November. Relax. People who submitted in September still haven't heard anything. There have been 3 work days since you submitted your application, it is going to take 2 weeks or more to hear anything. There is a flood of applications the couple of days before the deadline and there will be a big backlog. If it took 2 weeks for people to hear back in September it could easily be 3-4 weeks for interview invites for people who submitted on the due date.

Did anybody have issues with the "application proof" cutting off answers for certain questions. I kept every response within the limits on the app and I assume there were restrictions to prevent applicants from typing beyond the maximum # of characters or words, but my proof has a lot of stuff cut off? Is there any cause for concern here?

I can commiserate, Kp4. DAMN kind of CBS to keep their automated e-mail delivery system operating on a day that the AdCom is sleeping!

I must have the fastest interviewer ever. I had my interview today and I think it went pretty well. Before I even made it back home I had the status update email saying my interviewer had submitted his feedback and my application is moving forward. Granted it was ~1 hour drive from the interview location to my house but still, that was pretty damn fast! I hope it means he thought it went well and he wanted to get his feedback in immediately...
