45 mins, wow. Even my job interview didn't last that long. Good luck to you!
I'm assuming no one for the LST program has heard from them about calls?

Could those who have done the interviews tell us what to expect in terms of questions? Anyone else applying to the IELBP program?

I applied. Didn’t hear anything. Applied to the environmental one also, no response on that one either.

I had my interview today. It lasted the 45 minutes that were scheduled. The interviewer is very friendly and she mainly asked about my background and how it relates with the program.

So, a friend emailed Stanford and got the following response:

“It is important to clarify that phone interviews are not a formal part of the admissions process. However, the committee will conduct phone calls with applicants at their discretion.

We expect to release our decisions this month and into early April. While we understand that applicants are receiving offers from other schools, we do not accept requests for accelerated decisions”

Just noticed that my " Mailings" list is blank. However, I am not sure if it was always blank. Anyone can share whether his list always was blank/gone blank at some point?

Just found this headline "Stanford University Cancels On-Campus Classes as Faculty Member Tests Positive for Coronavirus". Do you guys think its in any way related to the delays in the admission process?

I just saw that too. It's terrible for them, understandably they're delaying decisions. Hope whoever is affected gets better.

@Han1989 I know and I see those emails too. But Stanford has not updated anything on the status checker so far. I think I check the portal every day ever since.

@romercs I think so. I raised this issue before in this thread but unfortunately no one answers... I think it is a main factor why the process is quite slow this year because they might need to anticipate future scenarios, for example, whether it is likely that the US will place travel restrictions on some countries. They have to manage the risk as well.
