I think all invites are going to be sent out by mid February!

I was pretty sure they said they'd let us know within 2 weeks of the interviews which was today.  I might be remembering wrong but were you in the January weekend?

I wasn't, but I would assume that all offers would be extended by then for both interview sessions.

I applied to Emory's psych program so they may be on a different schedule, but I have the formal interview there this Friday. I also applied to Georgia Tech's cognition & brain science program and haven't heard anything!

Yeah I had a PI at Tech tell me that they don't do interviews the same way most places do, rather they make an admission decision and then have you meet with the faculty.

For anyone who interviewed with the University of Minnesota, do we know when they plan to send out acceptances? 

Based on previous years, I think we'll hear from them next week *fingers crossed*!

Hey I noticed you interviewed at Drexel. Which interview days were you? I was in the first group and I'm dying at this point for a decision. I'm wondering what they told you guys about when you would hear.

Unfortunately I had to decline the Drexel interview because it overlapped with 2 other interviews but it was supposed to be Jan 28-29 :( So I have no info, sorry! i hope you hear from them very soon though!

I think it's interesting that they're telling everyone different things. My email came from Wesley. Here's what mine said:

 We were able to extend very few offers of admission after our first open house and will make the vast majority of our offers after our second open house in two weeks. We remain very enthusiastic and we will be considering your application together with all others at that time.

I didn't get one of these emails so I'm still clinging on to hope that I'll get one?

It might be track specific. I assume it applies to everyone honestly

I just checked my application status for Georgia Tech and had a decision letter from there! :)
