Interview Date Correlated With Strength Of Application?


Recommended Posts

In the past, it has been random. However, this year might have been different since the time stamps correlate with GPA/Casper strength - which makes me speculate that interview dates assignment may follow a trend too, for convenience's sake. 

 

Anyways, good luck! If your interview is competitive, you'll get in, regardless of your interview date! :)

I don't think interview date correlates with strength of application pre-interview. I know of someone with a lower GPA than myself who is interviewing before me and someone with a higher GPA interviewing after me. Also all three of us personally think that the casper went well, so I don't think there are crazy differences there in terms of performance. 

 

For now, lets all work on preparing for it and good luck everyone :)

Hey guys, 

 

I am 90% sure it does NOT correlate with the strength of your application, but rather where you are coming from! I interviewed as an out of province applicant and on my day there was not a single person from the Ottawa area or anyone that attended UOttawa for their undergrad. It was also reading week, so I believe that if you had to travel they strategically put you on reading week and I'm sure the rest was just random as a result.

To play devils advocate, I met a gentlemen from Ottawa at my interview this past week; moreover, others from my institution who interview at Ottawa are scheduled for early-mid March. This is to be taken with a grain of salt of course... nobody has a conclusive answer to this question... except perhaps for Mr. Duck!

It is most likely random. To challenge your theory about geographic locations, I was interviewing with 2 of my friends (all from Ottawa) and most other candidates came from outside Ottawa (this during reading week).

 

There is no preference for GPA, Geographic locations, Casper, etc. According to many reputable sources, it is indeed random. Unlike our simplistic duck brains, humans always like to find patterns in everything...
