The question I really wanted answered was "What percentage of R1 interviewees do you expect to offer admission to?"

Alas, I went 0/3 on my questions. :arh

Last year Rose explicitly said they invited about 60% of R1 applicants to interview, so based on last year's admission rate they admitted about 40% of people interviewed. But who knows with the increase in applications this year whether they'd interview less, or just accept fewer of the people they interview.

I heard they were considering interviewing a lower % of applicants this year, so the % of interviewees admitted is hopefully > 40%.

I hope so. Last year I was one of the unlucky 60% who were dinged after interview.

where did you get this information? Rose has always said that they interview 50-60%, depending on the quality of the applicant pool.

At an info session well before R1 apps were due. But the GSB rep only said they were considering interviewing a lower %. If I remember correctly, a 40-60% range was mentioned. Didn't sound like they had made a decision, and I doubt they would until seeing the applicant pool.

I.e., I wouldn't put my hopes on what I heard, because it didn't sound definite. But if you're looking for minor details with which to drive yourself nuts over the next week, here you go! :-D

What I can not believe is that people ask these types of questions. I haven't been involved in any of these events yet so I do not know what goes on, but I even know better than that. :?

Anyone else just get an email from booth admissions? I got an email saying my application has gone "complete"??? Must be some sort of mistake - my status online still says invite to interview...

hmmm...probably some sort of computer error...

i'll tell you, its no fun to be driving home, having your phone beep with a new email from Booth Admissions saying your status has changed - I almost went into the Chicago river...

EDIT - per the BW forums, it seems as though all re-apps are getting a similar email...

Maybe it means that they decided on your application? Wasn't the status before interviews "submitted"? If so maybe "completed" means "we know what to do with you"...?
