5/9 interview here. It’s over for me, isn’t it.
Also 5/9. I haven’t seen more than 1 or 2 5/9 interviewees report on a feeler or A yet, so I think there might be a chance we might be under faculty review if they assigned by interview date. Most likely it’s over though I would say
Also kind of doubt that not seeing many people who interview 5/9 hear back yet has any bearing on future chances tbh
15:20
If you're an international student, where the time is 4:20 am right now, do you think they'll call when it's a reasonable time for me or them
Thoughts on people who interviewed during week of 5/13?
I got II 5/10

there's a chance our apps are still in faculty review
hey just letting people know I got off the waitlist in july last year. Do not get your hopes off, it's a waitlist, but it can happen later in the summer (and I wasn't the only one).
hopes up*
I'm tired sorry
thank you, that means a lot!
anyone get the R yet? the email promised they were coming
11:33
Is that just for people who didn't submit LOCIs or does it include interviewees?
Who knows
Idk but if they aren't gonna take me I'd rather just get rejected straight out
12:03
Just got the rejection update on my status checker, had my interview 5/9, RIP
Just as a data point I just got a rejection and I was a part of the recent interview wave, if I had to guess they all were sent out as a batch at 12 est
Good luck to everyone still waiting
Well got my wish lol
RIP to us y'all
Oml so sorry yall
Do we know it was a batch?
12:39
Didn't get an II yet, but also didn't get rejected today.. What should I make of it?
13:14
@crashandburn: did you submit a LOCI?
14:05
also didn't get an ii yet but no R, submitted a LOCI on 5/2
14:05
what are the chances that they even send out any more ii?
14:30
@omnirunt: Yes, I sent in a LOCI in late April. I'm thinking that I should send out a follow up letter at some point in the next week.

I interviewed in feb and am WL. sent my LOCI 5/6. Is there still a chance when I interviewed that long ago
17:35
@mia2971003: well we know they’re not interviewing this or next week, so i think they could maybe still send ii the week of june 3rd. if you didn’t get the R i feel like that means they could still consider you when they resume activities?
17:36
i wonder how many Rs they sent out today
