Interview Question [#permalink] New post 25 Oct 2005, 13:57
For those schools who have an "invitation only" interview policy, does anyone know around the percentage they interview? In other words, how many people are initially thrown out and are not given the opportunity to interview? Please advise.

I don't have hard numbers, but I would estimate that they interview something like two or three times as many people as they ultimately admit. So, if a school's acceptance rate is 15%, I would guess that they invite somewhere between 30% to 45% of their applicants to interview.

Not exact, but that should give you an idea!

Thanks Scott. Would there be an advantage to interviewing early when they invite you? Would a decision come back faster and would there be more "open" spots within the incoming class?

I don't think that your odds of success are really any better or worse depending on when you interview. But for schools that don't release all of their decisions all at once, it does seem like interviewing earlier means that you get your decision a little earlier....
