Was there a request of official transcripts from the beginning?

I had applied.! 

I think one had to send WES transcript (if initial degrees were not completed in the US). It has been there since the time we submitted the application. They are not done with all decisions yet. I had mailed them asking for an update, got a reply saying it would take till end of March to complete all offers. 

omg thank you so much! good luck with us!!

Yeah I think it would be and rejects have already started being sent so I feel like you’d have to hear for an interview at least. And you’re basically in once you get the interview they are just making sure you are not an academic robot and can talk like a person lol 

I got the interview!!!  Hope I get in now!!!

Yes!  Do you know how likely it is that you get in after the interview/ what kind of questions were you asked? 
 

If I get in it means my SO and I can 100% stay in the same city!!

I’m pretty sure with this interview you’re basically in if you get one. Like mine only lasted 15min and the prof just asked if I had any questions about the department and why I was interested in BU. And then asked my opinion on the virtual visit weekend and how it’s set up lol. So there is a solid chance you’re going to be accepted !

Yeah that was my impression as well (that the interview was basically an acceptance). He said it was also for recruiting purposes!

i really hope you are able to get into UNC to stay with your SO as well! I’ll be declining my Unc offer if/ when BU accepts me.

Is it safe to assume I'm waitlisted at this point for the UC programs? I haven't gotten word back from them since attending their interview/recruitment events. I guess the silver lining is no rejection emails? UCLA really caught my eye but I'm really nervous to inquire 🙃

To all who are still waiting for UChicago,

Here is what I got from Prof. Tokmakoff and Prof. Moellering:

At this point we do not expect to make any more admissions for our 2021 class. We received many more strong applications than we were able to accept into the program. I wish you the best of luck with your applications and future endeavors.
