Same. D received an email with an alum’s name on Jan 5th, but there’s been no follow-up email since then to actually schedule an interview.

Has any RD applicant had an interview yet?

no interview yet also… got the email

I think you guys should really not stress about the interviews. They are not consequential. Whether you get a call or not, and even how you do the interview. Just go and have and fun if they call for an interview.


Tinnish asked: Does anyone know by when the interviewers are supposed to finish the interviews?

For what it’s worth, I’m an interviewer in NJ, and we were instructed by one of the chairs of our local alumni committee to submit interview reports by February 22. However, that may not be a university-wide deadline; the instructions refer to that date as our “regional deadline.”
