    Is it just me, or does it seem like programs haven't sent out as many notifications by now as they usually do? For OB/Management at Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, Yale, and Chicago, looking at the results on Grad Cafe, there are no results reported yet they usually have been by now. Any ideas? Maybe some programs aren't interviewing this year?

    My school has sent out offers but no one has posted on GradCafe...

    Interesting. So maybe it's just a matter of low sample size, and 2019 might have had an unusually high number of applicants posting to GradCafe.

    I haven't heard from any of these programs yet –– I know that Stanford's micro organizational behavior hasn't sent out acceptances yet; Berkeley isn't accepting students this year; heard from a friend at Yale that they have just started to review applications a week or so ago; no idea about MIT and Chicago

    I wonder if you could share a bit more on the process for USC & NYU (OB). Do you happen to know if USC Marshall invites all potential students for on-campus interview or it is done individually? I heard that NYU has sent out invites to all potential students for on-campus interview near the end of Feb?
    Thanks!
    thanks, tad2020! I would happy to speak about these privately; feel free to send me a message and we can hop on the phone. And yes, I heard from NYU's Stern (micro OB) on Jan. 23rd for an on-campus interview. I heard from USC's Marshall from a faculty member informing me that I was on their shortlist. Like Stanford, I think, USC will send out acceptances without having invited candidates to interview.

    just curious - does NYU invite only OB students for on-campus interview or other departments as well?

    I feel really depressed. Just had an interview with faculties and it was shorter than other experiences. Seems like the senior faculties are not interested in my research. Asking no question to me.. I prepared a lot for this interview but it finished after 20 minutes. As this school is one of my best choices, this is frustrating. I wish I could do better in other interviews..

    Sorry to hear that. For what it's worth, I think people in general are really bad at guessing how an interview went. A lot of it has to do with the personality of the interviewer. Do they like to compliment the interviewee and provide encouragement to make them comfortable? Or do they just cut to the chase and want to get the interview done? Do they like interviewing and see it as an important part of the process? Or do they just want to check the box and not really care how it goes?

    If they don't ask you any questions, it's probably a more informal discussion designed to just give you the opportunity to learn more about their program. I've also heard they can be used just to check an applicant's English fluency, though I don't know if that's really true.

    It's also good that you overprepared! There are always a lot more possibilities than realities when it comes to interviewing. If you prepared more things to discuss and more questions to ask than you had the opportunity for, then it means you did a good job preparing enough material.

    Actually, this was my second interview with this program. So it makes me feel that I failed to pass their second hurdle. Anyway.. I think I should prepare for other opportunities as you said. Thank you for the kind reply!
