My interview was on August 28th and my interviewer still hasn't submitted his report! I sent him a reminder email today. Fingers crossed he gets to it this week.

Good luck!

Thanks! That must have worked because I just got the status update that he submitted the report.

My timeline:

Submit - July 29
Interview Invite - August 20
Interview - August 28
Interview feedback submission - September 8


Now just hoping for a call and not an email!

I submitted mine on 8/16. Still have not heard anything. I'm anxious as well, but trying to keep in mind that there were holidays in the States.

Congrats! I think your schedule is the fastest I've seen to date.
Have you been accepted into ED or J-term?

Applied: late May
Accepted: late June

The interview invite came about two weeks after I applied. I interviewed a few days after the invite and was accepted a couple weeks later. I was a re-applicant this year. Last year I was denied without an interview. Last year when I applied, I wasn't myself. This year when I applied, I really let my goals and personal vision for my future shine through. Getting rejected from a target program isn't necessarily failure, but giving up is.

I hope this inspires some of the re-applicants and people who may get rejected in the future.

I got the call today. From an unknown number which I couldn't even answer properly because I was in an elevator. Got an email shortly after asking me to call back.

My timeline:

Submit - July 29
Interview Invite - August 20
Interview - August 28
Interview feedback submission - September 8
Acceptance - September 15

Little about me:
770 GMAT 50Q 45V 7IR 5AWA
Undergrad GPA is 7.75/9 which roughly converts to a 3.65/3.7 on the 4.0 scale (according to law school admissions)
Law school GPA is much lower, Bs across the board
38 months of work experience at matriculation, I work at a federal department dealing with copyright legislation and policy. Future career goals include working at a music tech startup like Spotify.

You should be proud! Now it is time to relax.

To think what you could have done if you didn't have such a shitty score!
