Notifications of various schools [#permalink]

Took a trip down memory lane and read some of the 2007-er's application process. Looks like our forum will become very heated from Sept-Nov!
Anyway, looks like people were "finding out" that they got dinged or accepted in the November time frame after turning in R1 applications. I was wondering how many of the top 15 schools will let you know BEFORE their notification deadline (usually late January)?
Looks like Cornell accepted rhyme in November, Wharton and HBS announced their dings (no interview invites) by November also. Didn't see any other stats other than Stanford inviting saturnring11 on Nov 20 for interviews.
If anyone knows (rhyme, Paul, pelihu, aau, etc?), could they let us 2008 applicants know which schools generally tell you something by what time and which ones wait until their notification deadline?
Well, Chicago and Wharton let you know you are dinged pretty early on. They use the same process where interview requests are handed out, and those not interviewed are dinged immediately.
UCLA is known to hand out admits on a rolling basis. Darden calls people starting a few days to a week in advance of the decision deadline. The timing of the decision seems to have no bearing on how much they liked your application, as I didn't receive call before or on the deadline, but was offered a scholarship.
I applied regular decision at Columbia, so I don't know about their ED process; but their RD is rolling. They review applications in order received up to the deadline, and dole out interview requests throughout the process. Any of 3 readers could call for an interview, so you could wait a week or a month for an interview. Once the interview has been recorded, it depends on how many people read your application in advance (2 or 3 total read it). If it doesn't need to be read further, you could get your decision a couple of days after your interview, or it could take a few weeks.
For Stanford, I can just confirm that dings go out on the decision date. I think interviews can be arranged up until the deadline date.
