I actually live on the state line of TN and AL so I wouldn't consider myself out of state haha. What about you?

I'm about 15 minutes from Birmingham so I'm very much in state lol. I'm so nervous, but excited for it too!

I spoke with the admissions coordinator & she said that all initial interview invites were sent out. So theoretically everyone who didn't get an invite are on the waitlist to interview and if someone declines, they send out more invites to the next ones in line. We still have the rest of this month to get a potential interview!

That’s exactly what I just heard from Kerry Glasscock

So I guess that means they must have sent out 290 invitations yesterday?  So lets keep our fingers crossed for the rest of us waiting. I live locally, so am still hopeful for an invite.  Good luck to everyone that has interviews in a few weeks.

Edit Does anyone know how many apps they received this year?

Wow! I didn't realize they Interview such a large cohort. Do you know how many they accept? And I do not know how many apps they received. My guess would be in the 1000s normally

From what I have read, they have interviewed roughly that many in the last few years, but I think it is for 88 slots this year too. They are slowly increasing their cohort number every year.

Got an interview for nov 5. Any idea how long after the interview that they offer seats?

Last year I believe if they got accepted right away, they found out within 10-14 days after interviewing. I think wait lists were sent out about a month after interviewing.

Congrats to those who have received their invite to interview. I interview Nov 1 afternoon session. This will be my 2nd time interviewing. For those who have not received their invite. Hang in there, last year I received mine on the last available day invites were to go out. Good Luck to everyone!

Last year someone spoke with Mrs. Glasscock regarding the invites and stated on the forum that they invite till a week before the interviews start. They have to allow all those who deny or do not confirm their slot.

Has anyone received interview invitations since Monday? 

I have been wondering that same thing.  It has been quiet since first interview invites were sent out.

So do they not send out any emails saying that people were denied? I never heard back from them, but I at least thought I would have gotten an email saying I did not get in? Anyone else in a similar situation?

By going off of last year, it seems like the denials go out after the interviews are completed. It seemed like it was around the 3rd week of Nov. 

Don't lose hope though!

Looks like they are on the next round of sending out interview invitations, so keep an eye out for the email. I just received mine for November 1st, afternoon session. I am wishing the best for those of you still waiting.
