For those of you that were admitted, did your application status online get updated?

The official update to your record may take a day or two to show. In a week or so you'll get something in the mail with an official letter.

As long as you got the call telling you that you're in, you're good to go.

My status is admitted and I also got an email to sign up for a welcome reception and other miscellaneous admit information.

Congratulations to all those who were accepted thus far from Round 1. Best of luck for the next steps for those WL/Denied. Hope whatever is best for you is what works out.

The following question is for current students or those accepted thus far: I already had my round 2 interview and I was wondering if anyone had felt like they had not done as well as they wanted or that they couldn't tell if their interviewer appreciated the discussion but still were accepted?

I am usually a solid interviewer but due to a last minute timing issue, I arrived just before the interview. I felt a bit frazzled and I thought I did not have a chance to talk about all of the key additional highlights I wanted to add to my application. I had similar questions as what malaage had listed but I didn't say all that I would have said.

In other words, I allowed the stress of arriving just 2 mins before the interview to get in the way of my clear thinking. I walked away feeling like I repeated a lot of what I had already discussed in my essays.

I am sure I am worrying too much, but I would love to hear your perspectives on similar experiences.

Again congrats and best of luck to everyone!

Thanks a bunch.

I am an admitted Round 1 applicant who came out of my interview feeling very discouraged. Although I prepared for the interview, most of the questions I received were not necessarily in line with my preparations so my answer were short, repetitive and not very strong (or at least that was my perception). So I was actually very relieved when I got the acceptance.

At this point what's done is done and you can't change your interview (it is probably not as bad as you think anyway) so probably best to remain positive. At the end of the day, the interview is just one component of your application so I'd still be confident if the other parts are still competitive.

Thanks for your reply, jimbot! First of all, congratulations on your acceptance! What you describe is exactly how I felt and what I experienced.

Thank you for the advice and encouragement. You are right - I should stay positive and remember that I am confident in the rest of my application.

Again, congratulations!

I agree with JimBot. This can never be perfect. We all go through our motions about the interview. Even if you gave a near-perfect interview, the result may not be in our control especially when you come from a non-diverse background.

Yes. I had mine a week ago. It was conversational and fun. The interviewer had already read my application, but I still used the same examples from my essays.

Did you have any specific questions in mind?

Hi Hannible,

Could you list down the general questions you were asked?

Nothing special:

1) Walk me through your resume.
2) Short/Long term goals.
3) What would you bring to the classroom that other's can't?

The earliest I'd expect a notification is the day before the deadline. There have been quite a few people in admissions that have changed positions though. So, it may be the day of the deadline.

Wish I could!
I requested to be placed on the waiting list for this event more than a month ago and didn't make it. :( Bummed, as i really wanted to attend this particular event since other class visits don't have a happy hour reception. Trying my best to attend a class and meet current and prospective students at every school i applied to...
