Will start to prepare for the interview right away with the helpful information posted throughout the thread. Any further advice from freshly interviewed applicants?

Kind regards


I just got the call that I'm in! Interview went well, great news on a Thursday! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


congrats! curious when you interviewed?

For all of you worrying to miss the call - I missed mine. I could see that a NY-number called me and got an email two minutes later with a contact that I could reach out to. So no worries :)

Waiting here too. I interviewed the evening of 11/4, feedback submitted late on the night of 11/5. Was hoping maybe they'd get a quick turnaround but don't want to stress it. Completely out of my hands at this point.

Interview report submitted 11/8..... I guess I'll be on edge all next week. At least I'll get some rest this weekend. Good luck to all and hopefully see you at CBS!

Same boat (feedback submitted Monday morning), it seems like they get back to US citizens within 2 days now, and internationals in 7-10 days. Since I'm US based, pretty much think I'm out of the running. Have a UCLA interview on Wednesday, so I'm just assuming I didn't get in, and going to focus on that all weekend. I'll still hold out faint hope, but I'm not waiting in front of my phone for a phone call anymore haha.

Me too. If I don't get call today, I will move on. I'm US based too but not US citizen. I remember they pool people by passport not location. Hopefully we will both get it soon.

Hi guys,

I would appreciate some advice – specifically, whether I should call my interviewer to politely remind him to submit the interview report.

I have completed my interview on 5th Nov but my interviewer still haven’t submitted my interview report as of 11th Nov. In addition, I have sent an email reminder on 10th Nov but received no reply. I am wondering if it is appropriate for me to call him today to remind that the report is due soon.

Thanks for the advice!
