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.
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).
Is there someone here that got into the PhD program in Business Administration and Management (Management track) with fellowship at Bocconi University and will not accept their offer? Or anyone that applied in previous years and know their yield rate?
