Another 3500 ITAs issued in today’s draw. The cut off score has come down to 441

did you get into the pool before the draw?

Yes…submitted in afternoon…even I updated profile once in evening which took two hours to reflect. …but still waiting for ita message

edit:I just now received email saying my application was updated… seems my yesterday evening’s update got completed now and probably my application was not in the pool then if it updated now …saying so as i have not received ITA yet… and even this update email came now

@srhere , what does Tie-breaking rule refer to? Does it mean only candidates who submitted EE before this date will be picked?

no… tie breaking rule is for lowest score… for example today’s cutoff is at 440 … so tie breaker rule is for 440… so anybody who created profile before 30-DEC and has score 440, then will receive invitation but somebody with 440 but created profile after 30-DEC will not get invitation
