Has anyone heard anything about interviews from admission office?

Nothing. It’s like they’ve forgotten us or something.

Nothing at all. It's bizarre. Are they planning on not admitting a class for the 2021 school year or what??

It is possible they are just reviewing all applications to mass reject and invite to interview

Possibly. Last year they interviewed A TON of applicants - way more than needed it seemed. Maybe this cycle they're being more selective.

I dont think they would decline an incoming class. No matter how wholesome a program seems, at the end, they want that $ to upkeep its facilities and faculty. Especially, a cohort of graduate students where most $ is made

Is it possible they waited to view all of the applicant pool because of the pandemic? They’re probably trying to be fair which is awesome. Personally, I encountered several delays and wasn’t able to submit my application sooner because of everything that’s been going on...

It seems that would defeat the whole "rolling enrollment" thing.

I agree; there seems to be a lot of uncertainty recently in regards to when interviews will be happening. I'm definitely trying to be understanding in these difficult times, but it's starting to get a little worrying that no one has heard back at all (even those of us who applied very early).

I think everything is fine. Almost all programs in California are beginning their review in December to interview in January. So some programs have a very late timeline. Unfortunately, we have to accept such a delayed timeline because each program could just review applications in March before cycle closes and then admit students in May. So anything will be better than the situation I described lol

In my self service it’s still saying that my GRE scores have not been received and I know they’re waiving it this cycle, but I already submitted them to CASPA. Does anyone know if I have to submit it to UTRGV as well? Has anyone heard anything else about interviews?

If they're in CASPA, then you're good to go. Last year I had to contact the graduate school directly because some of my transcripts were showing as "missing" even though I knew I had them sent. They had them but just had not updated the portal. The program pulls all your info from CASPA, so you should be fine. 

And no, no one has heard anything regarding interviews 😕

My apologies, I didn’t mean to come across as insensitive. Also, I understand where you’re coming from...! 

I hope we hear back from them soon, wishing everyone the best of luck.

considering their program will start December of 2021 and their email said it will be a long time since we hear back from this, I think it's fair nobody's gotten an interview yet. They have a lot of time to do interviews, but a good portion of their applicants may already enroll in programs that start in May/June.

What do you mean their program will start December 2021? I thought it starts August 2021.

I wasn’t aware classes would start on December , do you mind sharing more details about this?

Also, I agree with you, there’s still plenty of time. We also have to consider, on top of reviewing a ton of applications, they probably all have day jobs and lives which might of been affected by the pandemic. 

Someone recently shared with me that last year they received ~2,000 applications 😮. It’s probably more challenging to review and compare applications with a committee during these times. 

 I wouldn’t be surprised if they took at least another month or two before they began reaching out. I hope they’re all doing ok that’s for sure.

I tried finding their start date but couldn't, for some reason classes starting in December doesn't seem right.

Edit, just looked on CASPA for UTRGV it says "Start Term 2021 Fall".

Same here, I don’t want to send them an email because I’m sure they receive a ton. I don’t think that’s right either, but I could be wrong.

I did my investigation on the program's instagram page and then found a PA-S that tagged the program's location. So the final conclusion is that the program starts every 3rd week of August

Look at this teamwork! Thanks for digging and finding that

Is anyone from the Coastal Bend area? I received an email from Frank Ambriz on September 22nd stating

"We will next be conducting interviews via Zoom starting at the end of the month."

By "end of the month," is that hinting at end of September? Because there are a few days left

I would assume so, however, I have not heard anything yet...
