Does anyone know around what time we will be hearing back for interviews?

Based on last year's post, people started hearing back right around now

My application was verified as complete and forwarded for further review on July 5th- I received the interview invite this morning (7/28). Just for anyone wondering about the timeline!

Congrats! Anyone wiling to share their stats? I looked at their accepted applicant profile and it's much higher than the previous class (something like a 3.7+ sci GPA). I don't think I really fit their profile, so I'm not anticipating much.

Thanks, Jrobssk! I guess you never really know what they're looking for; the accepted stats are only one piece of the puzzle. Best of luck at your interview (and everyone else)!

I got the email yesterday as well! Looking forward to meeting all of you there! If anyone has any advice for coming in from out of state, please let me know!! I am waiting to book my travel arrangements until we get the email with more information, but I will probably be flying in to Dulles on Wednesday night and getting an AirBnB. 

For anyone who is curious, I submitted CASPA on June 4th, my application was forwarded for review on June 9th, and I just got an email on July 28th for the August 25th interview. My stats are very similar to Jrobssk. 

Best of luck to everyone!

Got an interview invite last week for August 25th- full day interview! I'll be driving in about 1.25 hours away. A little rough since the interview day starts at 8:30am and lasts all day, but hopefully I can make it through!

I applied towards the end of May and have been invited for an interview this Friday the 25th. I am excited and nervous! I look forward to meeting all on that day. I'm not familiar with the area does anyone have any helpful tips about navigating around?

So, did anyone who interviewed on Aug 25th get calls today?

I still haven't heard anything. In the past they got back to applicants within a couple of days. I wonder if there is going to be a delay because there were two different interview session in one day instead of just one session.
