Wait Listed Before Interview

Recommended Posts

A month ago I received an invitation to visit the lab of a POI. This was after a phone interview and before acceptances had been announced. I have not yet had my in person visit / campus tour but I have received an e-mail from the graduate department stating I was on the waiting list. Has anyone had a similar experience? Could I just be on the waiting list because I have not yet had my interview, or does that mean my POI has already chosen another applicant?

Oh, it's very hard to say for sure... It depends totally on your program, on their rules and procedures. I think you can ask about that during the campus visit. Good luck! :)

I'm on a interview waitlist for one of my school. I was told this on feb 7, and reason being that more people needed to be reviewed first to see how manypeople they can afford to fly down and even admit. I was told I'd hear something by march 1, so I'm staying opptomistic. I know they sent a few admits so far and one guy I know, went back in Jan first round and still has not been offered a spot. I'll let you know "when" I get off it and interview, wishful thinking. : )
