How long does it take UPenn to offer an interview?

Guys, I submitted my penn app on Nov. 5th and they gave me the portal account on the next day. However, they have not contacted me for an interview yet. I live in MD and I heard my friend from Baltimore getting called for an interview already. That kind of worries me. Do you know how long it takes them to set up an interview? thanks!

    whether they interview or not doesn't really affect much for admissions anyway. i got my offer for an interview about a day after the ED due date if you still want to know but again the effect is insignificant

    "That kind of worries me." You may never get called. Your name might be on some volunteer's email that hasn't been opened. Relax. They are optional and the least useful part of anyone's application --and rightly so. It's not indicative of your chances whatsoever.

    But to answer your question, I suspect Penn is like my Ivy alma mater: all reports due by Dec 01 for Early applicants.

    If you're an RD applicant,then they aren't due until early March I think.

    I looked around some old CC threads and tracking started working around the 3 week of November last year (or some other recent year).
