Yeah, but because they take about 5 weeks to invite people for interviews so they must go through all the applicant materials before calling them so i am not sure but the interview could be a make or break component in the process?? At most schools is it more like 50-60% acceptances after interviews?

I'd look at it this way, if they invite you, you're past the first stage. After that, the interview will make or break (or waitlist... :-/ ) you. If you are invited, crush the interview, and you're in.

Ok i was under the impression that even if your interview is positive then they might go back and look at all the application material and if you are pitted against someone who had a good interview but has like better rec, essays or gmat/gpa higher than you then you'll be dinged anyway irrespective of the interview.

I'm sure they do, but... who cares? You cant control that. Duke is VERY high on "fit" if they feel you fit, and your stats are good enough to be invited to interview, you're golden. You can not control what you've already submitted, so, crush the interview, prove that you deserve to be there, and that you will be an asset to the class of 2015, both on paper and in person.

Honestly none of us applicants know the inner workings of the admissions process. All you can do, if you get an invite, is do really well during the interview. The rest is out of your control. Dont get bogged down in the details trying to compare yourself against others -- it will just drive you crazy and nothing will come of it.

As a reapplicant, I can say that my Duke interview this year was my best one, and I was admitted. I came away from my interview last year unsure of how I did and I was subsequently waitlisted.

A little sparse with the details on the website, but I suppose they will be coming.

I got an email to check the interview status. Once I logged in, it said "Invited". So excited!
It also said that a separate email will be sent with interview details by Monday 5 PM EST.
