Good luck, Rhyme. I hope it goes well for you. If/when you get the job, you'll have to fill us in on the details.

Hey Sigity and yellowjacket,

Similar situation here.
R2 last year, waitlisted. Applied R1 this year.

:?
Extremely frustrated. I really thought I had improved my app.

The silence is killing me. Only one interview invite reported here and at BW forums. :(

hold on yellowjacket....

I find it hard to believe that there are only a few interviews invites left.

There are three full days of open interviews left on the site...

Don't want to be super negative but last year interview invites were given as late as the Monday before the Wednesday deadline. Nothing on Tuesday. Then the dings rolled out promptly on Wednesday morning. That is just how things went last year per the GMATclub GSB thread. Maybe things will be different this year. I am hoping so...

82% interview invite rate?! I was feeling confident when I first to the interview, not so much anymore. Here's hoping all of GMATclub gets admitted!

Last year, GMATClub's acceptance rate in R1 was 11/22 = 50%. I will be surprised if our overall acceptance rate for Round 1 (of all applicants who applied) dips below 40% this year.

Didn't get the job. Bummed about it but it really wouldn't have been a good fit anyway.

Bias in the data. Lots of people lurk and then suddenly become active when (and if) they get an interview. You don't see the other lurkers saying "Oh I didnt get one". So it's just skewed data.
