    Nothing yet. I applied last semester and got wait listed, they called me for an interview around this time (this week/next week) so I am assuming we should hear something soon based on how they did it last semester.

    Thank you for the Update! If you don't mind would you be able to describe the process of the interview and waitlist from your first time applying?

    Yes! so i applied in the winter for the summer 2019 internship. I didn't hear anything (and didn't expect to hear anything TBH) until March 11, 2019. I wrote this down in my calendar from that day that i got a call:

    DESCRIBE YOURSELF
    HOW WOULD YOUR FRIENDS DESCRIBE YOU
    WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR NEWS
    WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON TRUMP
    WHY DO YOU WANT THIS

    its a little shorthanded but i tried to write as much as i could from memory of the phone call. I literally forgot what I said because i was SO nervous.

    They call on a blocked number so if you don't normally answer those you might want to in the next few weeks. I was then notified that I was waitlisted, which i was ok with because at least they didn't completely throw out my app.

    Then, after waiting I got an email saying the waitlist was closed. :( but whatever, I just decided to reapply and see what happens. It such a far shot but I figured whats the point in not applying?

    What has your experience been? is this your first time applying?

    I will actually be in DC the week before decisions. My nerves are going to be going crazy. Do you think they are going to be reaching out next week?

    Either this week or next week, but not after that. Week of July 15 is when notifications come out. My nerves are crazy too...

    How do you all know when notifications come out? It's my first time applying, and I thought I would have heard for an interview by now, but I'm starting to doubt that I will be accepted.

    Also, I'm currently living in DC, so internships are all I can think about!

    The official website says July 15, but I heard that a few weeks before the decision dates they should reach out with emails, phone interviews, and more paper work!

    @80degreescelsius do you think next week and the week after we still have a chance of hearing from them?

    If you don't hear anything this coming week then you probably won't hear from them. It's not a bad sign if you don't hear from them though. there are people who get it that never got interviewed. I think only certain departments interview and others rely on your resume strength. There were some people who got it that never were even contacted. It's a matter of chance i guess, and TBH i think the interview makes or breaks it, so if you don't get one thats even better cuz you can stil get a position LOL
