Just a separate thread to keep each other updated!

Did anyone get an interview for January deadline?

I haven’t gotten anything yet :/ I am an international applicant, if that matters...

No, haven’t gotten anything either. Feeling a mini heart attack every time seeing an edu mail pops up.

As of right now the March deadline has passed and they have extended the application deadline is still open on the course page. Therefore this is good and bad!!!

Bad: They are still hoping for better applicants to apply by the end of March
Good: Less people than expected have applied so we all stand a better chance of getting on the course

Although this is a new course so a lack of publicity maybe still a problem as the lack of applications. I applied for the March deadline on the 2-year course as I want to fund my study instead of taking out the postgraduate loan. Paying back 20% of your annual income in a job isn’t a good deal for students when many phds are fully funded

Applications close this Friday so I suspect that next week the call for interviews will go out, if it’s been more than 10 weeks since you applied then I suggest you email the department on the course page. Did you apply for the 1 year course?

I actually had an invite to an interview sent out to me yesterday so I think they've already begun rolling them out! It was slightly under 6 weeks from submitting my application to receiving the invite.

Congrats! Is the interview in April? and did you apply for the 1 year full time course? I applied for the 2 year part time option so I believe that full time get interview offers first

For those whom have had interviews can you give the rest of us advice. What questions did they ask you? what discussion topic on a technical subject related to the course did they give you?

Actually it was a quite broad topic. And it was totally up to you whether to get it very technical or not. I would say, just show your strength in the interview. There were no correct answers.

Sorry for getting back at you so late - its been a hectic few days with COVID-19 turning my life upside down. Before your interview, you're given a very broad topic like to present about, and like shawns said, its up to you to make it technical or not. I think the one piece of advice I could give you is to really know the ins and outs of the arguments you might present, and be sure to be up to date on them too, don't be like me and not realize some new technologies could totally solve some of the issues you suggest .

Anyone else from January waiting on the March re-evaluation? Do you expect a second interview in the re-evaluation? I wonder how many people applied in March compared to in November and January...

Adding to what Aboudeh said, I'm almost certain we aren't getting going to be interviewed again. If I recall correctly, they mentioned that they will be sending decisions as soon as the March applicant interviews are over. All we have to do is play the waiting game until they finish them up, which should be the end of this month/early next month

I personally don't know anyone that applied to this course but I agree, all we can do is wait and hope for the best. I will keep you updated, hopefully we can all be classmates in a few months!
