Reminder that if you haven't received an email confirming that your application has been designated as complete, check your other emails to see if the school gave you an online status check login/password. For several schools I had to check via that portal as I never received an email.
1/4/19 -- Invited to interview in person at Georgetown, could not get out of work to go during the provided timeslots. Asked to reschedule and was given a "We'll let you know." Gulp.
1/14/19 -- Interviewed with Cornell by video. Was not live, but questions were combination of video recorded and written. 5 minutes to respond to written, 30 seconds to prep and 1 minute to respond for video. Mostly standard questions, some very odd questions, some personal questions. Use their practice questions at least 3 times is my recommendation, and be ready for anything.
