This is a deferral and not a WL! What it means is that they do not want any updates from you but rather seek more time prior to interviewing you, most probably. Thus, the chances of conversion of a deferral are higher than a WL!

So I just checked with my friend who received a reject in R1. She said she got the exact same mail and that she never received any notification after this.

But yeah, some people might actually get a call. But that surely is a long shot according to me. Anyways, all the best to everyone!

Got an interview invite. Really happy after a depressing reject from HBS.

How many of the applicant pool does Fuqua interview? I don't see a lot of rejection notices on clearadmit.

Ok-so this is for all the people who got the 'we regret to inform you..but this is not a final decision' email. I confirmed this with the adcom and from what I understood, it is very unlikely any of us will get an invite. You will probably know about this with the R3 interview date which is sometime mid April. To summarize, this is mostly a ding and time to move on to other options.

Hi everybody,

Does being invited to interview mean the other factors(GMAT, GPA etc.) are not of importance any more? I mean once you are invited, is it the interview performance that matters or is the "holistic approach thing" still pursuing you? Assume that one candidate has a low GPA and GMAT both, the other one has 750 GMAT and 3,78 GPA, and they are all invited to interview. Are the odds equal then? Or, even though the one who has lower scores has a slightly better performance in interview can be denied while the other with the high scores who performs worse in the interview can be admitted?

My understanding is that the interview is simply another data point that the AdCom has to evaluate each candidate. It helps them assess your interest in the program, as well as your future performance in interviews for internships and full-time jobs. So I believe that all other aspects of your profile, even those beyond GPA and GMAT, are still relevant even after being invited to interview.

Any Early Action admits get a confirmation for their Re Vera check? Initiated mine going on 3 months ago and haven't heard from anyone. I think they gave a 2-4 week estimate for this when it started.

In addition to and reinforcing what ryan774 said, after the interview your application is holistically evaluated again by other admission consultants (1 or more that haven't look at it yet). The new evaluators didn't interviewed you and should evaluate all application factors to reach a final decision.

That’s assuring to know. I am waiting for the Tokyo city captain. The email said that we will hear by the end of this week, so we should wait till tomorrow before we send out an enquirer to Adcom I guess.

MsInvBanker: The alum interviews are coordinated by a city captain assigned by the school.
