    I don’t think that they will send invitations to anyone, because according to the spreadsheet 10 out of 19 got the interviews, it’s more than 50%.

    you’re reading it right, but it’s just a polite answer for a rejection according to the previous years spreadsheets, no one got a late invitation.

    Fulbright is just a scholarship, you still have to apply directly to the school. Did you do that?

    Yes I'm a recipient.

    I didnt apply directly. IIE did it on my behalf and I'm not supposed to contact the unis. Neither can they. So right now I'm in the dark a bit about interviews.

    I spoke to Columbia less than a minute before this message and asked if more interviews would be sent out. The exact response I got was "We sent out interview requests, we may send out more, we just don't know." I asked again, "Is there an actual possibility you will send out more requests?" she said "Yes." There's no way of me knowing if that's PR to ease the pain, but those were the responses a few seconds ago.

    Edit: To add to this, she also gave a line that resembled "In the past we have sent more interviews out after this stage." which confirms that the previous year spreadsheets of different interview request dates is in fact accurate and there was hope for those at least within that year/potentially within other years. So if her information is correct, the "doubt" that the spreadsheets of previous years were incorrect, can be settled in the event that this admissions officer is competent in relating information.

    Thank you and I don't know for sure. Last year it was all one day but DamienA's admissions inquiry suggests that there may be more this year. You never know with these things. It's a very interesting process, full of surprises.

    According to the spreadsheet, it appears an International student received an email notification for an interview today 2/13. I guess there is still some hope. Keep your heads up guys!

    I guess it happened because of the time difference
