Do yall believe it is too late for me? I just sent mine app in 😞

I wouldn't say it is too late. I just submitted a week ago. I would say it may have reduced our chances a bit of getting an interview. But, if you have a competitive application, you still have a shot!

Does anyone know when they're sending out interview invites?

I would think it would be any day now. It looks like it was around this time last year that invites went out.

I'm moving home (just graduated college) so I had to quit my job as an MA. I'm currently searching for another job so I don't have any "projected" HOPC hours on my CASPA application, or what I plan on doing. Do y'all think that'll hurt my chances; like would a program assume I'm not doing anything before matriculation? Or would it be more along the lines of them reviewing my initial app, inviting me to an interview (fingers crossed) and then finding out what my plans are? Obviously I will update CASPA when I secure a job but I'm considering emailing programs reassuring I'll definitely have one... Just don't want that to hurt my chances right now. Pls lmk y'all's thoughts!

Are they sending invitations through email or phone? I'm new and not sure how this works!

It was though email. I don't know if there are many programs that call for the interview invite maybe for the acceptance notification, not sure. I'm a first time applicant as well.
