Does anyone know how it works for the waitlist and if there were actually students interviewed from the waitlist in the past?

does that mean you got the interview or no? or you are just waiting for a spot to open?

Waitlisted for interview means that you are in a waitlist, not that you got an interview :) Im in the same situation and im not really familiar with this process, if someone has more info about that, stats, real experience.... let me know! Also, how close to the interview's day could we get contacted if a spot opens up?
