Congratulations everyone! Does anyone happen to know if they received their 9/29 interview invitation on the same day or could they still be in the process of sending them out?

If anyone is staying at a hotel near the airport and wants to split an Uber/Lyft to the interview 9/29 message me! Or if you want to grab dinner!

I read in a previous thread that they interview around 300 and accept around 80.  That could be slightly more or slightly less because this was a previous year.  Hope that helps.

Also received an interview invite for 9/29. Is anyone flying in the day before and want to split a ride to the school?

I’m flying in the day before and haven’t booked a hotel or Airbnb yet. Definitely interested in sharing/carpooling.

Hello,

Can anyone help me with this issue logistics I have. I am coming from out of state. I have a room the night before the interview, but not during the interview, nor do I have a rental car. I was wondering if there were lockers for my backpack. I am traveling light. I just don't want to look silly going into my interview with a back pack of luggage. Any ideas? Worst case I can get another air B&B but I'd rather save the money.

You can always ask ur Airbnb host if you can leave ur stuff there and come back for it later (if you trust them enough). I did this at my other interview and worked out perfectly. If you’re staying at a hotel, you can always ask to leave it at the reception. Most of the time they are willing to hold it for you!

 My flight tomorrow (28th) arrives at 5:45pm, if you want to carpool.

Where are you staying? I am driving in from out of town and you can keep your stuff in my car if you want. Message me and I will give you my info.

Do they only have two interview sessions and accept their entire class out of these two sessions?

On the 29th they had a morning and afternoon session with like 80 people each. So if the 10th is the same, it will be over 300 people interviewed between the 2 days ?
