@Maxamillion I don’t think so... I believe it stays open until the first day of classes because there’s always a chance someone could drop out of the program and then they would still call the wait list even if it’s in August!
I know that the interviewers all vary, but having interviewers who are friendly and conversational goes a long way to making a potential student feel comfortable. I do feel strongly that all of the interviewers should have had the same style, be it conversational or stone faced. Also, even though there are 180 hopefuls to get through, there seemed to be such a variance in types of questions. Is there not a way to give all of us similarly easy or difficult questions?
