I just barely found this site and this forum, but I am so glad that other people are in the same boat. I check my e-mail about every 10 minutes and would be lying if I said this week didn't give me a little bit of anxiety. 

Totally in the same boat, I've been racking my brain for the two months. I've probably randomly checked CASPA 10 times. Is this your first time applying?

It is my first time and all the other schools haven't given me an interview. The U is my last one and I am really hopeful about it.

Has anyone contacted admissions to get an update? I have and heard nothing back thus far.

Not over here, I assume things will be delayed to some degree due to COVID restrictions. But tomorrow is Friday, "mid-October." So I am hopeful.

Hi everyone!  I know it's so stress-inducting to wait right now!  To my knowledge, invitations to interview have not gone out yet.  However, the admissions team is very organized.  They run a tight ship, so take heart!  It will be sent soon.  In the meantime, here is the corrected URL for the current class demographics for your viewing pleasure.  The URL on the website isn't working.

I just received an email from admissions. They said we should hear something hopefully by tomorrow, certainly by this weekend. Good luck fellow applicants, wishing the best for us all

That's good to hear. Thank you. Not sure if it quells my anxiety, but still good to hear.

Are you thinking that the announcements that we're expecting this week may only be for the first round of viable applicants? I assumed they'd let us all know and then we'd be placed in time slots for one of those dates. I'm a first timer though so its totally speculative.

I believe UPAP will inform all interview candidates at one time. Especially during these interview times just in case there are complications with the interview date scheduled. I know they are willing to work around other interview dates if you have a different interview scheduled with a different school and that would not be possible if they only told you one date without extended notice.

Yep. But I guess I’m speculating from my experience too. Second time applicant but first time getting interviews. Ive had other interview invites (from Rolling and non-Rolling schools) and they’ve all sent invites in waves. About 10-14 days prior to the scheduled date. 
 

I’ll add that since they are a non-Rolling school (And already have their dates on their site) I bet they’ll send out invites with a date assigned and any extenuating circumstances will be dealt with. 
 

any current students know exactly how they’ll send invites??

I don't know if this year will be different.  With COVID who knows?  Traditionally all the invitations are sent at the same time.  

Thanks! Good to know!

Does that mean we’ll also hear about rejections by this weekend?

Has anybody else received anything from UPAP? Its concerning that I haven't gotten the message from admissions that Yafi received.
