Perhaps I have too much time on my hands, but per Booth's email reminder about a live chat with admissions on 10/14 it states the following:

That leads me to believe that a large number of invites will go out prior to the 14th, when the webinar is suppose to take place, no? How else would people be able to prepare for the interview if they didn't know the received one.


I noticed this too. I didn't think too hard about it though. Maybe it's just their way to get all applicants to come to the live chat, instead of leaving R1 people out of the fun. This is probably one of the last times to interact with the adcom, so might as well attend the chat with or without an interview invite by the 14th.


Ummm guys, then should I be worried if i didn't get the online chat mailer. (I am on their mailing list)

Same thing happened to me. I think their mailing list is corrupted. Last year I used to get all the mailings from them in email. This year, I do not get anything (if anything they send me invites about my hometown events in another state).

Very interesting observation! Considering that 11th and 12th are non-business days, it leaves us with 13th (Monday) and 10th (today!)

Let's hope, right! That'd be a pretty quick turnaround, but why else would they allude to having the conversation about interviews on Tuesday...

If the number of applications are down (which might be the case given the level of activity on this forum), they could have very well finished reviewing applications. It is to my understanding that last year had a surge in round 1 apps (accross all schools) driven by the GMAT test changing formats (I can't firm this but it makes sesnse). This explains why admissions moved the deadline earlier thinking the growth would hold stready (which it probably has not).

Trust me, the level of activity on the gmatclub's message board has ZERO indication of the number of applicants. I'll bet my bottom dollar that apps are at least at similar levels.

Agree on that. I was just checking last year forums for some schools. Most of the activity starts once people receive interview invites.

And as far as we know, no invites have been sent out?

Had there been any, we should have known by now. The chat invite seems like a false alarm.

Honestly, that seems a bit sloppy to me. No one reads the blasts? Anyway, talk to you guys in the chat.

Behind the Scenes of Round One  [#permalink]

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Behind the Scenes of Round One
Image
Hello applicants and future applicants! The Round One deadline has come to pass and now many of you are anxiously awaiting what happens next. I know the evaluation process can seem like a black box, so we’re hoping to give you a better sense of what will happen behind the scenes over the next two months.

As a first step, our online application system reviewed all applications for completeness. Unfortunately, if any required material or information is missing, your application will be moved to Round Two.

The evaluation process is then divided into two phases. The first is the pre-interview phase, where our Admissions Committee will spend time reviewing your applications to determine if you will be invited to interview or denied without an interview. Applications are read in random order and ensuing interview decisions are released on a rolling basis from mid-October to October 24th.



If you are invited to interview then you have moved onto phase two, or the interview phase. We highly encourage all applicants to interview on-campus to immerse themselves in the Booth community for a day.  Understanding that not everyone can travel to Chicago during our interview season, we have alternative options available, including hub city locations and alumni interviews in cities across the world.

On-campus interviews are conducted by our second-year student fellows and hub interviews are conducted by alumni,and in some cases second-year students. From an evaluative standpoint, there is no advantage or disadvantage to completing your interview on or off campus.

After you have completed your interview, your interviewer will submit an interview evaluation. At this time, the Admissions Committee will again thoroughly review your application in its entirety.

Final admissions decisions are then released at 9:00am CST on December 18th. You will receive a decision of Admitted, Denied, or Waitlist and can view your decision through your application status page.

If you are invited to interview, rest assured you will receive thorough instructions and information via email. But if you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to use the comments below to continue the conversation.

Best of luck!

Tyler

So does mid-October mean that starting tomorrow interview invites are going to be sent out? I thought that I read somewhere that they weren't sending them out until the 20th?

Awesome, thanks for the heads up. I am assuming notification for an interview invite will come via email?

do other people have a big red x next to GMAT scores? The way I read it, they don't need verified GMAT unless admitted but it's not clear to me that my application will be reviewed...

interesting that they do rolling interview invites rather than picking a certain date - i guess you just wait until the 24th and could hear any day from now until then
