Hey for those of you that have interviews coming up soon. Have you received an email about an article that needs to be read prior to the interview? If so, when is your interview and when did you get the email? 


A friend of mine has hers on the 7th and got an email on Monday, I have mine on the 9th and still have not received an email so I am just concerned. I tried calling the school but since it is a holiday today I don't think I'll hear back until a few days before the interview.

I spoke to Kim the other day and she said the interview process is going to be different than the last few years, so there may not be an article to read anymore. But, I'm not 100% sure, she did not give details.




Thanks @Bdunnam. I was just worried since my friend's interview is on the 7th and she got an article. But I suppose maybe the interview setups are different depending on the day. When is your interview date?

If your friend got an article for this application cycle, then there probably is one. I don't have an interview date (hopefully, yet!) I just submitted my CASPA application Sunday. But, I have interviewed the past two years. I was waitlisted the first year and declined the second :( hopefully, 3rd times a charm! :) I don't want to go to any other school.

Once you have confirmed that you're coming through the email she sent that's it, unless there is an article to read before hand and that will come a week or so before the interview. Good luck to you! We should start hearing back soon from those who interviewed first if they got accepted.
