Hi Victor and FF.
Having just received an invite to interview, I have been looking for an open slot for the last hours and there is none for San Francisco, Boston or on campus.
Though I'm based on the West Coast, I am willing to travel to any of these locations to complete the interview. It sounds a bit silly for a US-based candidate to ask for a Skype/Phone interview, so before I call the Adcom to do so, I wanted to explore my options:
1. Based perhaps on earlier interviews (Rd1 or early Rd2), how reasonable is it to expect some slots to open or to be added?
2. Can you confirm that a Skype and/or a phone interview is the only alternatives I would have given the unavailability of interview slots?
3. What is the deadline to interview? There are two conflicting dates coming from the email I received after submitting my app (it says by 3/9) and this blog post by the Adcom (it says by 3/16 in major cities).
Based on my research of this forum and others, it seems a lot of candidate are in this position. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
