CMU MSCF interview

I just got an email for an invitation for an interview for CMU's MSCF program. Do you know what percent of applicants get an interview or what percent of interview people finallly get accepted?
Also, for people that already had an interview with CMU's MSCF what kind of questions are we supposed to stuudy?
 
The interview is completely behavioural and is taken mostly to see how well you would fit in at CMU MSCF. They also want to understand your motivation behind applying to the program. There isn't much to study honestly, just be clear about what you want to do after graduating, and why you have applied. The other questions can be answered on the spot!

Most of the tracker applications that received an interview were admitted, however, that doesn't mean that it's a 100% conversion rate. Few people do receive rejections. Best of luck!

I reckon the interview conversion rate has been much lower than before. Judging from the number of interview slots and number of final offers in round 1, it should be lower than 50% now.
 
I thought my interview went very well. But I ended up getting feedback that I didn’t receive an offer because my grades weren’t high enough. So not really sure what the interview really means.

Could I know where did you get the feedback? Was it in the decision letter or you just contacted the admissions team?
