    I wish. Earliest bschool OB deadlines I had were 12/1 for Stanford and Harvard. I'm also applying to social psych programs and they seem to get back earlier but nothing has been released for anywhere I've applied yet, possibly next week at the very earliest.

    I wish I had something I could say that would make your waiting easier. Just know that it definitely does suck, and all of us in programs are pulling for you guys.

    Good luck!

    Don't be discouraged. Usually, departments within schools will move at different speeds. Arkansas Accounting is pretty fast whereas the deadline for Management isn't even until January 15th.

    How many days in advance do interview invites go out? Looking at some old posts (CB/OB), some schools seem to invite people 2 days in advance. Is this the norm? Are there any reasons for such a short notice? Psych schools send invites a month in advance. Why are B-schools cutting it too close?

    In my opinion, I think that they do it this way for a few reasons.

    1. Schools a bureaucracies, and inertia in a bureaucracy is the most powerful force. So it's always been done this way, it will continue to be done this way. Note that this is not because they necessarily want it to be like this, it's just requires nothing to continue the way things are, and requires some effort to change.

    2. Faculty don't think about applications until they think about them. Basically once they're in a PhD application mindset, they want to get it all done as fast as possible, then go back to not thinking about you until August.

    3. How much time do you really need? If it's a Skype interview for at most an hour (and most of them will be 15-30 minutes), then 2 days is plenty to get your stuff in order and read about the school and faculty. Obviously this is a personal preference, but I wouldn't want to sit around for a month stressing about an interview.

    Just submitted my last application!!! Now the waiting begins. I actually feel less anxious because there is not much I can do to alter the outcome, except perhaps more networking.
