the Application ID is different from the student ID, you can find it in the payment reciept email! I couldn't submit the form when I put the student ID under application ID so just for anyone else who is confused LOL 

 

EDIT: apparently this was the wrong advice, and it's actually the ID on the right hand side of your application portal!

The interview response form asks for our "Application ID". In launchpad I have a "student ID" and a "reference number". Anyone know which one we're supposed to use?

I have no idea, I'm stressed because I think that's just your student ID however I might use it

Did everyone who got a rejection get this phrasing? Should an interview position open up you may be contacted at that time. Otherwise, your file will be closed and a letter will be provided at a later date.

Like is literally everyone who didn’t get an interview effectively “waitlisted”?

So far it seems like everyone got that with their regrets email so I'm guessing they're just trying to keep us hopeful haha
