Not necessarily, I work with a BCS grad student and he said in the days just after Christmas. I presume they wont be all at once but this is what he said.

Ah okay, this was just from the official email sent out to applicants

“Applications will remain under review through the months of December and January. Once all materials have been sorted, we will begin sending official interview invitations to selected candidates. Interviews will take place virtually on March 11 and 12, 2021 and will be by invitation only. Post-interview decisions will be sent in mid-March and final decisions will be sent in late March.”

Maybe they’re doing batches of invites?

This may be controversial: I don't think that it's worth investing your heart and soul into the Ivies or the UC's. For domestic & international students alike, it's a game of 3D chess to determine

I’m not so sure about this. I was under the impression that most admissions committees (for PhD at least, med school is a completely different story) really only care about research experiences and ac

Declined my offers and accepted my top school! Very excited, officially going to start my PhD journey this fall. Good luck to you all! Sending so many good vibes.

It could be that this year is different but historically, MIT sends them out in the next week or so. Obviously this year is a different ball game all around. I saw that in the email as well but I'm just relaying what I've heard.

Another person just uploaded their interview invitation. I think even if it was not mass mail, they are sending all invitations today, good luck to everyone

I only see one interview invitation post of Columbia on the results page.

I also see that someone received an Interview via email from NYU. I know someone posted earlier that they would be sending invitations in batches, but ahhh getting nervous ... again!

I also was curious, for those of you who have sent programs emails asking if they are done sending out their interview invites, how do you word those emails without sounding too desperate/rude? Also, who did you send those emails to: the program director or director of graduate admissions?

Yes, me too. I have almost given up hope on Columbia and NYU now. Especially, Columbia.

I just sent an email to a graduate program coordinator this morning and have not received a reply yet, so not sure if I did it properly (but I imagine them being esp busy at this time of the year). What I did is just 1) address the person properly; 2) briefly introduce yourself (I included my application ID); 3) ask the questions (I guess not too many sentences. Mine had 2); 4) acknowledge that you know they are very busy right now so really appreciate them taking time to read your email; 5) wish the person an early merry Xmas

It's tough, I know. I guess just using a tone similar to what you wrote for an inquiry email to the professor of interest should work

Honestly, if you are rejected, they dont care about you, no matter how "proper" or "rude" is your email, if they reply, they gonna reply with a generic scripted answer and move on, dont worry

Got my first interview today! Still waiting to hear back from the other 5. But how should I prepare? And does anyone know  Weill Cornell's acceptance rate of interviewees? 

Do we know if Weill Cornell sent all the invites in one day or if they’re gonna have another round?
