They have started offering interviews. According to their website they start the interviews August. I doubt you're too late in the cycle considering their deadline is still a bit away.

Does anyone care to share their stats for those that have gotten interview invites? I just submitted my application August 1st so I am still waiting to hear any news!

Hello guys, 

 

Do you have an idea of when do they start the interviews? month? I have a strong resume but I have not taken my GRE...I am afraid I may be too late for this cycle. I talked to Katie and she said go ahead and do your CASPA and take the GRE and just enter the results whenever you have those, but it makes me nervous to be late, for what I have been reading... 

What do you guys think?

 

TIA, 

Brenda

I was verified on 5/20 and was offered an interview on 6/28. First available date was 7/26, but I am riding RAGBRAI and opted to take the second available on 8/9.

 

Good luck to everyone! I wouldn't say it is too late to take the GRE. It is still so early in the cycle!

Thanks! My stats are very similar so that brings some hope! What about your GRE scores? If you don't mind sharing!

 

Shoot! I knew I forgot something. Haha.

For anyone who has had an interview, how did it go? 

I interviewed July 26th and the process was pretty relaxed. Of course we were all nervous (there were 8 of us there) but everyone does the best they can to keep you from feeling a ton of pressure. They give you a tour and a few presentations about the school so by the time I interviewed, I was more excited than nervous. The interviews themselves aren't bad either, they just want to get to know you instead of grill you with crazy questions. Overall it was a great experience and I'll be putting my deposit down this week!

How long after your interview did you hear back from them? I have my interview on Tuesday!

Hey everyone! I interviewed on August 9th and experienced the same as described above. I really like how they made the experience into a whole day where you can really learn about their program.  You even have lunch with current students so you can ask them anything you want about going to school there. The two twenty minute interviews were not bad and they don't seem to expect you to answer everything perfectly, which was definitely nice.  I found out I was accepted three days later on the 12th by email! So excited!!

They will let you know how soon the admissions committee is meeting. They met 2 days after my interview, so we found out in three days! They're very open with their interviewees, so it takes a lot of the stress out of waiting. Good luck!
