Columbia MFE Interview Invite 2021

I received the pre-recorded video interview after submitting the application. Would there be any personal interview also?
 
I submitted on 4th January. Last year, people got the interview invite around this time. I thought to ask if somebody gets any invite yet or not.

I guess so. But it’s not necessary as stated on the website. Some people receive the admit without any interview.

I don’t think there is any personal interview. Do you know of any thread from previous years where this is discussed?
 
Does this means they received the same interview invite afterwards that we recorded after making the payment? So, no other interview this year?
I think so as we have submitted an 'Optional' video introduction and the pre-recorded interview, and those are enough data points to learn about any candidate's communication and behavioral skills.
 
I think people do get invites for a personal interview because many people from last year mentioned an interview in the application tracker section of Quantnet. Looking at the timeline of those interviews, it doesn't look like they are video response interviews.
 
I submitted the app on Jan 4th. I randomly logged in to double check everything is ok, then I saw the "video interview" link showed up in checklist. There was no email or anything. I completed the video interview, a couple of behavioral questions, time limit of 2 minutes. I did not hear anything since then.
