do they practice early decision? 

It doesnt look like it. I think they offer very little acceptances in the beginning and most go on a waitlist

Thank you ! I believe i sent in the app around 13 or 14 & got verified couple days later. Hope this helps! Also check in with reddit seems like people have been using it more than this for some schools!

Is Rutgers doing their interviews virtually?

Yes, they’re virtual! I interviewed two weeks ago and can say the process went very smoothly (despite there being a tropical storm on the east coast at the time) and it was super relaxed.

Congrats on the invite! Would you mind sharing your timeline? (When you applied/got verified/whether (& if yes when) or not you got the "2nd round of screening" email?

Thank you so much.

The virtual interview experience was honestly great!! I was interviewing during the tropical storm Isaias which made things a bit interesting; my power went out multiple times as did some of the faculty members. However, they really made the whole process very relaxed and overall positive. The first 1-2 hours are general info sessions, Q&A with current students, and a campus tour video. They also give about 10 minutes for a short-answer written question.

The interview itself is panel format, so you’ll have roughly 25 minutes in a private chat with 3 faculty members. It felt like a relaxed conversation in comparison to another interview I had a few weeks ago. My only tip would be to remain confident and relaxed! It’s really hard to prep for interviews as you don’t want to sound too rehearsed—just be yourself!

So does the second round of screening mean the possibility of an interview, or not necessarily? I’m so anxious waiting 😩

I think it just means u met the minimum requirements and were not auto rejected

Thank you so much for sharing the details of your experience! This truly helps my nerves quite a bit as I have an idea on how to prepare. Thank you again and best of luck to you! 😊

Anyone who interviewed on 8/4, have you received any update? 

Nothing yet! I’ve been watching my email, hopefully they’ll reach out this week or next.

I have decided to cancel my interview this upcoming week due to an earlier acceptance. I hope that this opens up a seat for someone, best of luck!

I interviewed on 8/4 and received an email this morning essentially saying I’m on the waitlist! During the interview they did say multiple times that it’s rare for them to begin accepting students this early—and that if our interviews were successful, we’d likely be placed on the waitlist. Hoping this is good news, and hoping to hear from them this fall/winter!

It says my file is under review by the admissions committee and that they will provide me with an update as soon as possible. In the meantime, I can continue providing them with pertinent updates to my application.

Congrats I was accepted as well! I’m not sure if a Facebook group has been created yet but I’m sure one will be in the upcoming weeks!
