Wait, really??? I thought it was like JS1s and interviews are a necessary prerequisite to an acceptance? I think I asked this before here (not sure if this or Columbia) and I don't think I got a response lol


For what its worth this is also my understanding.


What AlmostSplitter wrote sounds like Columbia. From what I remember interviews are a prerequisite for Chicago.


The website seems to very, very heavily imply that an interview happens before acceptance, though it doesn't go as far as to state that specifically, so there may be some outliers where it doesn't happen.

Has anyone seen a result here or on LSN with someone being accepted without any interview?

(Just want to add that I'm not posting this so those without interviews to give up hope--it's still very early, from what I understand!)

Is this interview like UVA where once you've got it you're basically in, more like Harvard where it's a good sign but there are still cuts to survive, or more like Northwestern where they offer an interview to almost everybody?

More like Harvard, from what I understand. The interview request comes after an initial review of your application, but doesn't guarantee acceptance.

Also received an interview request today!

It went to my "promotions" folder in Gmail so be sure to check your alternate inboxes!

If you basically don’t fall on your face/seem fairlyborepared, are you good?
Or, is it more, even with a great interview they are still dicing up your app?

The website says it's considered as part of your application. My assuming is that different people review for each round.

I'm like 95% sure I read something (on this website, maybe?) that gave me the impression that they accept about 75% of the people interviewed.

Same, UR3 though

Me too! I fear it's not a good sign for me though because I haven't interviewed.


I haven't interviewed either! I wonder if any ED applicants have.


I also went UR3 on 12/18 after interviewing. I'm ED. Any thoughts on what this means?

Dinged today ED after an interview. Obviously lots of other great schools I'm excited to hear back from, but feels bad.

Waitlisted as well. Better than a rejection I suppose!

True! Guess it's time to work on a LOCI
