    I received an email yesterday evening, but two hours before that I had seen the first interview post on gradcafe. Therefore, they probably send interview decisions one by one. This is just the first round of the decisions, I think there will be others.

    Thanks for your reply. My impression is that not everyone is invited for interview, and their website says an interview "may" be involved. I just don't know what it meas to be invited for interview, or not invited.

    Yeah, I am also not sure whether all of the competent applicants invited for interview. They may admit some of them directly without any interview process.

    Kosker, you were right. I just got an email with an invitation for interview. But now I am worried about the interview...

    I am also a bit anxious, but this was unexpected for me which makes me feel relieved.

    Interview is quite informal - takes 15-30 min (depending on how many questions you have) and they ask about your research, how you'd like to go about it, why TI, where else you applied, why a PhD.. pretty informal I felt like it was half-way them trying to advertise TI, which was great, since I didn't know that much about the program before. Good luck to you!

    Re: Tinbergen 2016

    Hi guys!

    I wonder whether it is really impossible to transfer from Tinbergen (or Tilburg) to a U.S PhD? I also have offer from Barcelona Graduate School where there is a long tradition (at least as far as I know) of sending the best studets to Top US universities.

    Thank you!

    bgse is much better as a stepping stone to usa but there is fierce competition. however if you only want an academic career at a good university then definitely phd from usa would be much better for you. if i were you i would try bgse =>usa path
    if it does not you can still apply to tilburg and tinbergen in the future
