Just a reminder to everyone, interview invites won't be sent until middle of December. They've been consistent with that for the past years (Dec 15 last year). Good luck to all!

It seems not many people on this forum are interested in UW-Madison, but, I am! So, I'm starting this thread even though it may be a bit early since CASPA just opened. Good Luck to everyone!

I thought it was around 3000? I do know that across all schools, UW included, there has been about a 25% increase in applicants this year alone.

Anyone with an interview/denied/waitlisted care to share stats?
