Hi Guys,

I have applied in R3 and the deadline was April 1st. When do the applicants receive an interview invite? If I don't get a call within two weeks past the deadline, should I expect a rejection? :(
Please clarify.
Thank you.


It is still pretty early... I have not also heard anything either. I am getting a little bit worried too though.



I applied with a 'priority' application. I was given application fee waiver and priority consideration guarantee when I attended their online program and I had to apply by March 12th.
And, may be that is why I have already completed an interview. I'd not be alarmed too much at this time. May be they are still dealing with 'priority' candidates. But by 20ieth or later, I'd start preparing for worse.

Hahahaa...

I blame consultant. He scared me that I should apply to some safe schools, but he said that by the time I was 'almost' ready with applications for other schools.. So, yeah, the list is way too long than it ideally should be (I admit that).
But again, I am an atypical applicant who falls into over-represented applicant pool (an Indian male, engineer but with lower stats; and to top it up, with 9 yrs of experience and well past mid 30s). so I guess, it worked better than expected.

Priority was based on attendance to their online webinar. That availed priority 'consideration' (sooner than other applications - but application deadline was earlier too) and fee waiver. After that, all is same. And yea, don't expect to hear back soon.

Shouldn't.
In being eternal hopeful that I am, I'd wait till late next week. The decision date is 16th, so give them a week to decide. Thus, end of interview should be about 9th.
Given that, if one hasn't rec'd the invite yet, chances are slim to very slim. But I'd wait till Wednesday, before starting to let go of that school.

It was a phone call. The portal is not updated yet, says application ready for review. But it was mentioned that I should get an email in couple of hours and portal update by the end of the day. A snail mail too to be expected in about a week.
About scholarship!! No, I didn't ask, wasn't mentioned. I am not too worried about it for a few reasons. First is, the person calling is a messenger, why can't I wait for a few hours when I will find out definitely anyway. Second is, this is not really a decisive factor - unless full ride or such (which I don't think I can get with my stats to begin with).
Just FYI though, I have scholarships from 2 of the 4 admits. And one of them is lapsed - I did not submit my deposit. This decision was the last one I was waiting for and I kind of know where I am heading. So, let's see what life brings.

No money on the table.
That makes my decision a little simpler - someone on the waitlist here will be receiving a good news in near future.

Congratulations to all admits.

I am not aware of any such event. May be FB group / welcome portal may have more information that I may have missed.
