    Has anyone heard about any movement from CUNY Baruch Zicklin Management division? Looks like operations interviewed someone a few weeks ago, and accounting extended at least one offer, but can't find any info per Management/OB

    sounds like a strong, rich background. Did you do predoc before or after MA?

    Question: When would be the latest you would hear back from a university for an interview or an offer?

    I've heard April 15th is like the unofficial cut off date, but does anyone know more about that?

    April 15th is related to a resolution from the Council of Graduate Schools. In short, it means that applicants have until April 15th to accept an offer (if the school follows the resolution). So, for example, if you receive an offer in February, you don't need to hurry to accept the offer, you can wait to see if you get offers from other schools before making a decision.

    Usually, I'd say that February is the hot month for interviews, with schools sending offers by the end of February/beginning of March.

    If you don't hear anything by mid-March, chances of getting an interview or an offer are low. But it's not impossible to see that happening. Late interviews and offers are often for applicants that were waitlisted (officially or not, as school may not have informed about you being waitlisted). As applicants start to make their decisions in March, schools may then find themselves with less students than they expected if too many applicants decline their offers. Strong applicants usually get multiple offers, so it's also hard for a school to predict whether they will accept its offer or go somewhere else. And then the school can reach out to more applicants, to get the number of new students that it wants.

    I don't remember what was the latest I ever saw. I remember people getting offers from top schools quite late (around the end of March), but getting something after April 15th is quite rare.

    UCSD sent out interviews mid-January. USC seems to be moving slower than in year's past, hallmarked by how they extended their deadline

    Is it normal to not be rejected from schools by now? I've applied to 13 schools and only had one rejection - and it was for a school I interviewed with (note: I've only been contacted by 4 of 13 schools concerning an interview which has resulted in 1 offer, 1 waitlist, 1 rejection, and the last still hasn't gotten back to me. So 9 schools haven't responded as of yet).

    I can't speak to every school, happy to share my stats though (management / OB)

    Applied to 10 schools:

    - Accepted: 3
    - Interviewed but Haven't Heard Back Yet: 3
    - Interviewing soon: 1
    - Rejected without interviews: 2
    - No Response Yet: 1
